Specialties

Dr. Charles A Beck Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Life saving

Dr. Beck assumed care of my son in the Emergency Dept at Ingalls Hospital. He is/was a C6-7 quadripligic, 20 years old, brought in my ambulance with a fever of 106.7. He coded and ended up for months on a ventilator. Dr. Beck just happened to be there and literally saved his life. Yes, he is a strong personality, just what was needed in such a critical situation. He showed great caring and compassion over those many months when my son was not even conscious. He had many setbacks and crucial events, but Dr. Beck never gave up. He was open and honest and willing to admit flaws. Words cannot say how much this doctor has meant to our family.

Best Doctor I have ever had in 50 years

Dr. Beck is a strong personality, but is also extremely easy for me to talk to, now that I have an ongoing doctor-patient relationship with him. He is extremely perceptive. You DO have to make your needs vocal to him while you are there (he has a very busy practice) but once you do, he takes the time to address them. He can be in a hurry, but that is because he has a huge waiting room with patients to see him - a doctor with that many patients has to be doing something right. I trust his judgment, even though he has not given me prescriptions I have asked for - he has explained the reasons why. I like and respect him.
