excellent service and care
Our experience at Children's East has always been a positive one. From the warm nursing staff, to the tech David who remembered my 3 year old from when she was a baby, to Dr. Beerman, who has provided us with amazing care since we became a patient of his when my daughter was first born. I always felt supported by this office and that my child was receiving comprehensive care. My comments today are reflective of my 3 year experience as it looks as though my daughter may not be needing further follow up due to normal testing now. I would recommend this team to anyone in need to pediatric cardiology services. My family and I deeply thank them for their service to us over the years!
I always have such a good experience at Children's and with Dr. Beerman specifically. He is so knowledgeable about his profession and is eager to share his knowledge with myself and others that are learning. All staff were compassionate and worked very well together.

I redoubled expressing my concerns when I felt it was important that he should hear me out. The provider told me how he felt, reassured me.
