    Dr. Becnel is a great doctor. She explains conditions very well, provides you with the right options for care, is very personable, treats you with respect, and always seems to have a smile on her face. I highly recommend her to anyone searching for a good primary care physician that will provide you with excellent care, while being knowledgeable in their field at the same time.

    Finally found my doctor. I, actually, called the Associate Director of Primary Care to tell him, personally, how good my experience with Dr. Becnel had been. I recommend her to everyone I know.
