Dr. Becker has been my PCP for over 35 years. He is extremely qualified, responsive and smart! I would highly recommend Dr. Becker to my family and friends. As a matter of fact several of my family members have become patients of Dr. Becker.
Boston, MA |
Quite possibly the worst Doctor I have EVER seen. Doesn't listen to patient. Feels like I'm talking to a statue. Rude and arrogant. Never going back!
