Patient Comments (3)
Bethlehem, PA |
He talks down to you, spends only about 5 minutes with a patient, yet the waiting time is over 45 minutes. He doesn't exactly seem to care much about his patients. He is only looking for $$$. The staff is just as bad. The receptionist literally hung up on me when I had to cancel my appointment. This is a psychiatrists office, yet they're not one bit compassionate towards the fact that maybe that certain day and time, a person cannot make it to their appointment due to their illness.

Just keeps throughing pill after pill at me, when I say they don't help, he gives me another one on top of the initial ones. Uncomfortably nosey. And charges extra for anylising your issue. I told him I couldn't come in as often as he wants, because of money, and he dropped me on the spot. The staff is all over the place. Never consistent information.

Dr. Eric Becker was covering for my regular psychiatrist. I ran 5 days short on my Paxil taking 1-1/2 10mg per day. I have been taking Paxil for 30 years for migraines and depression.. Throughout that time I mostly taken 3 10mg tabs per day. I needed him to cover for5 days prescription for me until my regular doctor returned to the country. He audaciously & unbecoming of a doctor said to me you are just going to have to suffer and go through withdraws. He refused to prescribe the medicine
