"We LOVE Dr. Beirma. We're always recommending him to everyone we know. He always listens (no matter how silly the question or concern is), he always puts our kinda at ease, he never makes us feel silly or stupid for bringing our son to the doctors office. He has excellent interactions with parents AND their children, he always greets my son (18 months) and talks to him as well as me. He's absolutely wonderful. He covers every concern we could possibly have."

Dec. 26, 2021
"Doctor Bierma said to contact him on Monday from a Friday appointment if the issue wasn't resolved by a large degree, as the issue may need a different ointment. The one he gave was perfect, issue was 95% gone by Monday making my son comfortable thank goodness!"
