- "I have seen Dr. Beatty for years. I don't belive you could find a nicer, kinder pain management specialist. He listens to concerns and provides the most reasonable and safe choices. I wouldn't go to anyone else. The staff is always friendly. The facility is clean. The wait times are never long. Highly recommend!"
