Specialties

Dr. Avril P Beckford has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Poor diagnosis

The practice is good. I love nurses there, almost every nurse is good and do a great work. However, accurate diagnosis is POOR. they just provide a generic diagnosis and give you antibiotics and I guess in 50% it does help. But not always and if it does not help, no follow up, when you call them, they just tell you that it's normal and it will go away. My son was coughing for 2 month, had 2 doctor visits and every week (almost) I called and they were telling me that it's ok, many kids do cough and it will go away, etc.... Of course every time I heard that I'm a great mommy and it's ok to worry. Ok, finally I got another doctors, he did some analysis and found out he had an infection, got correct drugs and it went away in 3 days...

Mother

Dr. Beckford is an outstanding physician. Her care far exceeded my expectations as a mother. Her vision for patient care is not just about the patient, but rather, the entire being of the family. That's what makes her practice irreplacable. If you are a mom or dad and you want the best medical care for your family, make the next available appointment with Dr. Avril Beckford. She will listen to your concerns when no one else will, and from the information you provide, she is able to direct the care for your given condition even if it means you require a referral to another physician. How do I know well the short version is that I have two teens who have been with her practice since birth. SHE IS THE BEST!!!!

Hands down, the best in the ATL!!!

All 3 of my kids have seen her their whole lives, and I can't imagine taking them anywhere else.Dr. Beckford is THE pediatrician that all others strive to be like! There is hands down no better pediatrician in the Atlanta area. She does everything with excellence.However, we have had numerous issues with the office staff over the years. After pointing out those issues to Dr. Beckford though, they have gotten better over the last few years, but unfortunately that only got them to a moderate rating. It is also sometimes difficult to get an appointment with Dr. Beckford because she is so popular and well liked by all her parents. The other doctors and PA's that she's surrounded herself with are mostly excellent, so even if you can't get an appt. with her, the rest are above average.That said, I'll put up with the crappy office staff, difficulty in getting appointments, and most any other difficulty that came up in order to make sure that my kids are able to see her!
