I have been very satisfied with Dr Becker who was recommended to me by another of his patients. His office staff is very helpful also, The only problem is the length of time it takes to speak to anyone in the office by phone. The advertising goes on forever.

My family have been seeing Dr Becker for decades. He is an expert in skin diseases. We do regular mole checks & he found a cancerous mole on my husband behind his ear. He referred us to a specialist for treatment. I highly recommend him!!!

I've been going to Dr Becker for over 15 years. He has always taken good care of me and has kept things from creeping in on me. I'd be in big trouble if he didn't pay attention to detail. Also, I love his straight forward approach and no nonsense work ethics in getting the job done. He won't waste...more
