Eldon S. Beard, M.D.

Dr. Beard founded Family Care of Winston-Salem in 1987.   He was born in Augusta, Georgia.   His family moved around when he was young while his father, L. Stanford Beard, completed his education.   He eventually ended up at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he earned his PhD in Botany and moved his family to the rural community of Buies Creek, NC, where he became chair of the Biology Department of the fledgling Campbell College (now Campbell University).   In this rural community, Dr. Beard grew up attending grades 1-12 in the same building while spending his summers helping local farmers harvest their crops of tobacco.

Chapel Hill held the first childhood memories for Dr. Beard, and that would prove to have a lasting impression on him, as he eventually followed in his father’s footsteps, attending UNC-Chapel Hill from 1974-1978, and earning a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry.

After graduation from UNC, Dr. Beard attended medical school at Bowman Gray School of Medicine (now WFU School of Medicine) from 1978-1982.   He proceeded to complete his residency in Family Practice at North Carolina Baptist Hospital (now WFU Baptist Medical Center) in 1985.   He became board certified in Family Practice that same year, and has become recertified in Family Practice in 1991, 1997, and 2004.   His current certification continues until 2011.

Dr. Beard is committed to providing quality medical care in the tradition of Family Medicine and in the spirit of the traditional “Family Doctor.”
