Dr Becerra spent two minutes with my dad, based on that, he established his prognosis without any further exploration. Lack of empathy towards patient and family . Lack of bedside manners. Arrogant and combative to answer questions. I do not recommend him, especially if your loved one is in a condition that requires a lot of answers from a specialist.

My Mother was at Avsntura Hopsital waiting to see the neurologist all day to understand he MRI. When he got there he spoke a million miles an hour in english and my poor Mother couldn’t understand anything! He was walking out before she was able to ask a single question. No bedside manners or manners at all. Seriously sick of doctors that think their time is more valuable than a patients. Would not recommend this man to anyone. Also, now I find out he is Latino and speak Spanish! Seriously !!!!
