Thank you, Dr. Beatty for your prompt service, excellent care and staff. My recent ailment was scheduled immediately with your appointment staff and I was able to get in to have Dr. Beatty look at me and come up with a solution for my problem. I like your ‘no nonsense’ approach to formulate a plan for my issue. I am now on my road to recovery. Thanks again for the prompt courteous service!

Dr. Beatty’s staff fitted me in for a quick appointment. Dr. Beatty herself fitted me for quick surgery to remove a big cabbage palm seed from my hand when I fell while running. My wound was infected and I was frightened that it would infect my new hip replacement. Dr. Beatty got the seed out of my palm quickly. I will always be grateful for her skill and kindness she showed me. Thank you, Dr. Beatty, from the bottom of my heart.

Three years ago, I developed a really painful trigger finger. Dr. Beatty treated it with two shots that take ten seconds each. The finger has been fine ever since. Recently, I got another one on the opposite hand. I wouldn’t dream of having anyone else treat it. I promise you, she is an excellent doctor. I know someone who has a trigger finger and was told it requires surgery. I suggested Dr. Beatty!


Very professional and friendly. Answers and clarifies all questions. It goes to the point of the problem of my hand and she always asks if I have doubts. She makes sure that I have understood everything that she explains.

I flew to Ohio on April 24th and my friends picked me up. When we got back to my friends house, I went to do something and stepped over a Great Dane when I fell and broke my wrist in 3 places. Off to the emergency room we went where they had to pop my wrist back in place. When I travelled back home after another week, I made an appointment with Dr. Beatty and had a complex surgery. All I can say is Dr Beatty did a great job on my wrist so I would love to say thank you so much, you are a great surgeon!
