About Me

Although he was born in Detroit, Mich., Dr. Beal considers Shreveport his home since he has lived here since he was 4 years old. During his undergraduate education, where he earned many honors, he became interested in medicine. While in medical training, he participated in a unique pilot drug study of quantitative aspiration in patients with symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea. Dr. Beal is a member of the Northwest Louisiana Medical Society as well as the Louisiana State Medical Society. He is also a Diplomate of the American Board of Otolaryngology. He focuses on providing compassionate care, while having a special way of communicating with children, as well as aged patients, to improve their health.

During his free time, Dr. Beal enjoys the outdoors, running, and spending time with his wife and three children.
