What People Say About Dr. Kenneth Backman, MD
Reply
I really liked Dr Backman. Having been through allergy tests and shots for most of my life, he was the most thorough doctor I had ever been to. However, I agree with another review on this page regarding the front desk staff. I have only been to the Monroe office, so I cannot speak for Fairfield, but Monroe needs a real overhaul. I had asked to speak to Dr Backman after one of the girls was incredibly rude, but was told I'd have to make an appointment. I haven't been back since. It's a shame
