Absolutely! He is the only one that checks all my medications, listens to all my problems and is so concerned of all my problems. I would definitely tell all my friends and family about Dr. Becerra and would strongly recommend him to anyone. Everybody in this facility is so nice and so easy to work with on making appointments. Always have good visits and feel so good when I leave after seeing Dr. Becrra. He is a wonderful, caring doctor who always takes time to listen and gives good advice.
