Specialties

Dr. John D Beerbower has the following 3 specialties

  • Diagnostic Radiology

    Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
    Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.

  • Neuroradiology

    Neuroradiologists focus specifically on diagnosing conditions related to the nervous system, spine, head and neck through radiology. They can identify abnormalities in these areas and help doctors properly diagnose the presence of tumors, aneurysms and even dementia.
    It’s also common for them to consult with patients with persistent headaches or back pains, trauma to a certain area, or any issue that can affect brain function, such as a stroke. Like any radiologist, they are trained to perform x-rays, cat scans, ultrasounds and MRIs, but they work closely with neurologists and neurosurgeons.

  • Radiology

    A radiologist is a physician who specializes in the use of medical imaging to diagnose and treat illnesses or injuries in patients.
    The different types of medical imaging are X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.
    Radiologists are experts in these different types of tests and can advise a primary care doctor on which test is most appropriate in a specific case. These doctors also assist primary care doctors in analyzing the images produced by these tests in order to determine next steps necessary for treatment.

DR BEERBOWER RUINED MY LIFE WITH EPIDURAL STEROID INJECTIONS. DO NOT ALLOW THIS DOCTOR TO PERFORM AN ESI'S ON YOU UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!

I DID NOT RECEIVE ANY FORM OF INFORMED CONSENT FROM DR BEERBOWEER, NOT IN ANY WAY. ESI'S ARE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS, YET THEY ONLY OFFER TEMPORARY PAIN RELIEF. WHY ARE PATIENTS BEING SUBJECTED TO EXTREME DANGER WHEN THE MAXIMUM BENEFIT THAT THEY CAN RECEIVE IS TEMPORARY PAIN RELIEF? THE REASON IS EXTREME FIANANCIAL GREED BY DR BERBOWEER AND HIS FORMER BUSINESS PARTNER DR JACK L BAKER. DR BEERBOWER FORMERLY WORKED AT FAIRMIONT DIAGNOSTIC CENTER. FAIRMIONT DIAGNOSTIC CENTER WAS SHUT DOWN BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DUE TO MEDICARE AND MEDICAID FRAUD AND FOR PAYING KICKBACKS TO LOCAL DOCTORS FOR REFERRALS. AS THE HEAD OF PAIN MANAGEMENT AT FAIRMIONT, DR BEERBOWEER WAS WELL AWARE OF THE FRAUD THAT WAS BEING COMMITTED THERE YET HE DID NOTHING ABOUT IT. WHY SHOULD HE, HE WAS PROFITING FROM IT VERY HANDSOMELY.

I am so thankful for Dr. Beerbower's skill and knowledge. He was able to help my father get out of pain after he had a failed hip replacement. I recommended my father to him because the doctor I work for trusts him completely and he is the only specialist he will send his patients to for interventional pain management and diagnostic testing. My dad is able to continue working because of him. He has helped so many others that I have come to know through my work in healthcare. If you want a doctor that genuinely cares about his patients and has the skills and knowledge to back it up, Dr. Beerbower is your guy. He is a blessing for our entire family and we are all so grateful.

After a disastrous experience with another well known pain mgmt specialist in Houston, I was referred to Dr. Beerbower by my chiropractor. He is the best Dr. I have been to since moving to Houston over 3 years ago. He genuinely cares about his patients, his bedside manner is wonderful and he has reduced and eliminated the pain in my back and neck. He is very knowledgeable and an expert. I have seen Dr. Beerbower many many times and each time has been wonderful. I highly recommend him.

Dr Beerbower crippled me and put me in a wheelchair for the rest of my life - DO NOT HIRE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!

Dr Beerbower gave me several epidural steroid injections. As a result, I now have incurable lumbar arachnoiditis. I can no longer walk and am bedbound for the rest of my life. Do not accept an epidural steroid injection from Dr Beerbower under any circumstance!
