Dr. Beurkens is kind and compassionate. She genuinely cares about my family and our collective wellbeing. We are working with her long-distance, and she is available by phone or email whenever I need her. She is resourceful and willing to consult with other experts to chase down new things to add to our treatment plan. I knew that we needed help from someone willing to deviate from the mainstream school of thought on how to address tics. Medication exacerbated my six-year-old daughter’s condition rather than helping it. I’d read tons of stories about all these other factors that could affect tics – diet, supplements, allergies, environmental triggers, etc. – but had no idea how to systematically work through these things on my own. The anecdotal evidence was overwhelming. I needed someone to hold my hand and draw me a road map. Dr. Beurkens is that person.
