Dr. Amy Beacom’s Approach to Care

Dr. Amy Beacom’s specialties include sports medicine; treatment of the shoulder, ankle, foot, and knee; running and swimming. Her dedication to treating orthopedic injuries related to running and swimming is reflected in her work as a team physician for USA Swimming and her volunteer medical services at local community races.

One of the best medical doctors I’ve encountered!  Would like to very much have her again – I’ve seen many medical doctors over the years.

Dr. Beacom has so much positive energy. She is always upbeat and informative. I’m happy she had a solution and plan for my knee recovery.

Survey Feedback

Amy was confident and clear with her appraisal of my injury. She was able to identify the next steps clearly, and was sure to discuss the rational for future assessment. I  don’t think I have ever felt this confident that I will get the best care, and  outcome from a another medical professional.
