So sad that not one of these reviews will make a difference in his behavior or bedside manner. My experience was similar. He tried to make me feel small and simple minded. He was rude, cocky, and worst of all, no help at all. I was very disappointed and discouraged.

I have seen others in the practice and will definitely stick with them. I agree with the other comments above. IF he were the best orthopedic surgeon in Atlanta , I would choose the second best with a better bedside manner.

Dr. Becker was without a doubt the rudest doctor I have ever seen. He was dismissive and condescending. He interrupted and cut me off mid question and was unwilling to hear or answer my questions. He was unaware of my pain or meds, apparently never even glanced at my file before entering the room....Read More
