I grew up in Rockdale County, and although I moved from Conyers in 1998 when I got married, I continue to maintain relationships with physicians I had the privilege to know both personally and professionally as an RN who started her nursing career at Rockdale Hospital. It is the element of trust that keeps me coming back to my hometown for medical treatment.
Recently, our youngest child became ill and spiked a fever at the “witching hour” - Friday afternoon at 5:30. I took a chance and contacted her pediatrician’s office hoping that I could get her in to see Dr. Bruce Beeber. His office closed at 6 p.m. — and although we have a considerable drive from Walton County, Dr. Beeber kindly sent his staff home to their families and waited on us to get there.
We learned during the visit that two of Dr. Beeber’s adult children were just arriving into town, and despite being at the end of a very long day and no doubt wanting to get home to his own family, he took the time to take care of ours.
I want to recognize Dr. Beeber as such an important part of the community. For all the years that I have known him, he has always presented himself as humble, and I hope that other families in both Rockdale and the surrounding areas recognize him and appreciate him as much as we do. Thank you, Dr. Beeber! We love you and your staff.
