Larry was a kind and gentle Physician. I completely enjoyed our work Relationship at The BMT Program at WVU. He had a great, quiet sense of humor, and his patients loved his knowledge, and sincerity. My Best Larry, and RIP. Your friend, Joe Lynch

Dr. Beall saved my Mom's life when she was given only 6 weeks to live with cancer in 1991. She went on to live 17 more years thanks to his treatment. I will always remember how caring he was and such a smart man and most of all a Christian. I pray for his wonderful family during this time of sorrow. So sorry for your loss of this special person.

Larry took good care of me through my four rounds of cancer. There is no doubt he helped me survive, in his care, from 1993-2012. He was a caring doctor and always looked out for my best interest. He certainly did his best for his patients! RIP my friend.
