in Chesapeake, VA |
Doctor Backens is very easy to talk with and expresses a deep concern for my well being . He follows up on his testing and their results ensuring I am receiving the correct care. I feel very confident in his ability to care for my well being.

I always thought Dr Backens was great until I had my physical rescheduled 3 times because he was too busy to keep my appointment. I have cancer and he is supposedly coordinating my care but he has totally abandoned me. O don't know what to do now.
