Dr. Bean was born in California and moved to Arizona when he was 13 years old.  He attended high school at Agua Fria High School, where he excelled in academics, cross country and track. He earned the U.S. Army Reserve National Scholar/Athlete Award for his graduating class of over 450. He also earned his Eagle Scout award during high school. Dr. Bean then went to Brigham Young University (BYU) where he completed his undergraduate education.  He served a 2 year service and proselyting mission for his church in the northern coasts of Peru, where he became fluent in Spanish.  He played in the Marching Band and Pep band at BYU and served as a volunteer EMT on campus.  

Dr. Bean then went to Podiatry school in Arizona and subsequently to central Pennsylvania for his 3 year surgical residency.  He became board-qualified in both forefoot and reconstructive rearfoot and ankle surgery by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. Dr. Bean conservatively and surgically treats all conditions of the foot and ankle including foot and ankle fractures, sprains, bunions, hammertoes, diabetic foot care, wounds, Charcot Neuroarthropathy, limb salvage and infections. Dr. Bean is deeply committed to providing evidence-based and personalized care for all his patients.

The greatest thrill in his work is seeing pain relief and improvement for his patients. He has volunteered at homeless shelters, tutoring organizations and Special Olympics events. Dr. Bean finds fulfillment providing compassionate care to his patients. When not in the office, Dr. Bean likes to be on his feet participating in activities such as running, basketball, ultimate frisbee, mountain biking and hiking with his wife and four young boys. He is excited to be in Pueblo where his family can settle and grow.
