What Makes My Practice Different?
See me every time you bring your child to the doctor. My #1 focus is my relationship with you and your child. I will get to know their medical history and individual personality. I will get to know your unique family. You will get the comfort of having a pediatrician who listens to you, collaborates with you, and answers all of your questions. Together, we will build a relationship based on mutual trust and respect.
I keep this practice small, so all of my patients have access to me 24/7 via phone, text, or email. There is no waiting room, because there is no waiting. Appointments are 30-60 minutes long. Patients and parents can access their health record via an electronic portal.
Sometimes medications are necessary for health and wellness. Sometimes they aren't. See a doctor who looks at all aspects of your child, their health, and their lifestyle. Care is personalized for you and your child.
From LB, mom of 2:
There are so many things we loved about Dr. Beard-Irvine! She provided wonderful care for our children, eased my mommy worries, and was always available when we needed her. She cared about us as a whole family and went above and beyond for us on more than one occasion. She always worked to find a treatment that was both medically appropriate and comfortable for us and she is one of the very few doctors that I had full faith and confidence in.
