What People Say About Dr. Gregory Becker, MD
Reply Flag
I met Dr Becker while I was being treated in the ER. Not the best place, but I was very glad to have him as part of my team that day. He listened to me, took what I said was happening into consideration, and validated what I knew and explained what I didn't know. Best part of that ER experience. And I have continued with him as my lung specialist since that time. I am very happy to have his as an integral doctor in my quest to get and stay as healthy as possible.
