I visited with him today and was very pleased. I will be back next year for my annual visit. If I had paid attention to the negative reviews I would’ve never kept the appointment. I’m so glad I came. He was very thorough and never once made me feel uncomfortable. I will definitely recommend him to anyone needing to see a dermatologist.

Made me extremely uncomfortable as a young woman. I was there for my face and he lifted my shirt without asking to see my chest and back. He looked my body up and down and made several innapropriate comments about my body. He went into depth about being sexual active and quizzed me on marriage and plans for my future. I feel so disrespected, I even made a police report and complained to the medical board. If you are a young woman be cautious.

Dr. Becknell is absolutely worth the wait. If you lack patience for the superb medical care that he will surely provide, I would suggest that you pack a lunch. This man does excellent work and has such a positive bedside manner that it's almost unheard of these days. He will be thorough in his care for you and make you feel like your concerns are addressed. I will definitely be recommending him and his services.

An excellent dermatologist who is working in a disastrous practice. Hour long waits afterv scheduled appointment times always happen and ease of obtaining medical record information from office staff is problematic. If Dr. Becknell was not as good as he is - I would NEVER come back.

He makes you wait way too long! He does not value his patient's time. Just ridiculous.

Dr. Charlie Becknell is the best dermatologist I have ever been to. He found a very rare cancer, which if not found in the early stages can be fatal. He is the very best and saved my life.
