Gynecological visits can be awkward. Truthfully, nobody looks forward to it. Heaven forbid you are having an issue that you need to ask about. I would reccomend Dr.Beall because she has seen it all. She makes me feel comfortable and she's easy to talk to. She has always treated me respectfully and given me the best care. I no longer dread going in for any reason. That's why I would recommend her to everyone. 100% (....I never fill out surveys, so this says a lot).

I felt that I was rushed through the appointment. It was as if she had better things to do and/or patients to see. She knew the concern that I wanted to talk about and she suggested surgery. She responded (paraphrased) "I'm a surgeon I'm known for my surgery." and I told her that I prefer not to go down that route, that I knew of a another surgical procedure that was less invasive and at this point she made no effort to ask me what the surgery was. I was not questioning her surgery abilities. Also, I thought she got a bit snarky with me when she told me that she would set up a follow-up appointment via telehealth within "X" amount weeks to talk about a test that needed to be done that was discussed. I told her that I needed "X" more time for said appointment. She responded (paraphrased) "Well, I don't know how busy you are." I felt if has asked me first what my time frame was this discussion would not have happened. Overall, I was not impressed.

I first met Dr. Beall in the delivery room. I was impressed by her bedside manner and the attention she devoted to me, my husband and then finally our baby girl. That first impression brought me to her office for my annual exam. She is very genuine, easy talk to and I feel as though she is truly listening to what my concerns are. Looking forward to calling her my regular!

She told me that my boyfriend would cheat on me, it was just a matter of time. She has shamed me for why I was there and made me feel gross and embarrassed. It felt like there were way too many personal opinions going into what she was saying and it made me feel very uncomfortable and when I left I cried in the car. I will never see her again.
