He's a lazy jerk.

He misdiagnosed me then became verbally abusive when I challenged him. He could have found the cause of my incessant thirst with a few simple tests, which he refused to run. Luckily I saw a new primary care doctor a few months later who ran the tests and I improved after my B12 deficiency was addressed.

Dismissive and unprofessional.

Totally missed B12 deficiency and pituitary adenoma and tried to tell me I had given myself "psychological thirst". New PCP caught B12 deficiency, switched to adenosylcobalamin, one week later the "psychological thirst" was gone. I was also put BACK on thyroid and adrenal meds because I actually NEED them, which Beard would have known if he'd run adequate tests. James Beard, you suck!
