One Star

Don't waste your time by seeing him. He's useless. Applies minimal effort. Sends me to the emergency room and then doesn't even have the decency to see me, while he was the attending physician in the E R

Patient, Knowledgeable, Does not push surgery

Dr. Beaton accurately diagnosed my condition and was patient to explain everything about my problem and different surgical options. I just had surgery so I asked him whether I could delay surgery or if there was a non-surgical option and he walked me through what would happen if I didn't. He did not push surgery on me. I decided to delay/wait before deciding on surgery, but if my condition recurs and I need it, he is a doctor that has already gained my trust.
