I found Dr. Beal via a friend after commenting that my current one just did not listen to me. Overall, I could NOT be happier. If I could see her office for general health in addition to OB I would lol. Shes listened and completely turned around my issues and pain. I can't thank her enough. Do yourself a favor, and give her office your business. You wont regret it.
ive seen Dr Beal many times. ive had many complications with my pregnancies. she is always there when you need her. day or night. Her experience is far from her mother like love and care. shes done so much for me an my childern i can never repay her. she extends her care even outside of her work atomosphere. I love you Dr. Beal you are the best
I too have had nothing but a good experience throughout my pregnancy through birth with Dr Beal. She is very caring, professional, and took the time to answer all the questions I had. This was not my first child (3 girls!!), but this was my first time with Dr Beal and this was by far the best experience of the three. Wonderful staff as well.
I saw Dr. Beal throughout my pregnancy this past year (2010.) My mom had seen her a couple times when she had to get some tests done and recommended her to me. I absolutely love Dr. Beal and her staff! They were always kind and took the time to answer my questions. I saw her at Springfield Clinic, and had planned on the delivering doctor to be whichever doctor was on call when I went into labor. After diagnosing me with gestational diabetes and, eventually, preeclampsia, Dr. Beal recommended I be induced. She ended up being the one to deliver and she was great! She always has a smile on her face and she was very encouraging throughout the whole 12 minutes I pushed. Her support through delivery truly meant a lot to me. I am never going to have another OBGYN touch me again! Also, there was a time in my pregnancy when my future insurance coverage was unsure. When I asked her, she said she would absolutely continue to see me no matter what my insurance. I was so relieved! Any woman looking for a kind, considerate, compassionate, knowledgeable OBGYN should see Dr. Heather Beal at Springfield Clinic.
Dr. Beal was one of the attending physicians at the hospital when I was delivering my first child, and ended up delivering the baby. Upon meeting me for the first time she did not even introduce herself or ask my name but told me how we needed to "get the show on the road" in delivering my child (I had been in labor for about 14 hours). She was cold, curt, and not at all interested in talking to me as an individual but rather content to just read my chart. She ended up delivering my baby by c-section but not once did she come to my room to follow up. I would not recommend this Dr. unless you want to be just a piece of paper to her!
