Cheerful, warm, friendly--seems to want to connect with you. Staff is always bright and friendly also. However I detect a slight disconcern as to whether a patient can meet the appearance of what seems to be high value of the service. I detect no interest or willingness to balance cost against the patients ability to pay.
This is a personal issue and in our economical times any person with a profession seems to be unwilling to go the extra mile to help people out, or people who do not have the ability to meet the high costs. This is not to blame nor criticize but rather an observation and more so of our times. Dr. Bever just seems to fall into that category and probably at not fault of his own, then again, I have absolutely no idea how many people he has helped, but just charging for product used and donation of his time and service to the individuals.
Despite what has just been said I do not hold fault on him because I really do not know if he is really helping other people. I have, in the past experienced physicians of various skills who never charged for their actual services. Surgery and eye, ear, nose and throat physicians, and a few others.
Am I saying the services should be free? No! I just believe responsibility dictates a need to address special circumstances. Some families have no income and many will not seek the services, some involve children, and senior citizens on restricted incomes. We live in a nightmare world at the moment. It has also been to my knowledge that all physicians take an oath to "do no harm" yet today I note that so many physicians disregard this oath once the establish their practices. With holding services because a patient cannot afford half the cost of a physicians financial requirement classifies, at least to me, doing harm to a patient. I do not know if Dr Bever has ever with held services. I know for me there has been an appearance of with holding services without offering some suggestion.
Despite all this he continues to perform his professional skill at what seems to be an exceptionally high standard.
