Saw Nurse Practitioner great person however his scheduling person Michelle the worst. She is very rude and does not follow thru with scheduling. Still waiting for a procedure to be scheduled now and its been over 3 months.
First of all Beckford wouldn't help me. I repeatly told him I was sick and he kept saying I was fine. Finally he pushed me on to another doctor who said I was right. Long waits and he won't listen to you.

First, we had to wait ~90 minutes. After Beckford and I talked he looked into my nose with the light on his head and then looked further using an endoscopy probe. He said I needed an MRI and a sleep test. I never heard from them again re: results or follow up, until the bill of 350 came. So for a 15 minute meeting and 15 second test, we paid 430. If you like poor communication, paying way too much money for health services or have lots of time to wait to see Dr. Beckford I recommend this guy.

Dr. Beckford is an exceptional, caring doctor. He places the patients care above all else. He takes excellent care of my aunt, my dad and does a great job with me a liver transplant patient. He also has a Great Nurse Practioner working in conjunction with him Tonya, and you can take what she tells you to the bank. I would recommend this group to anyone in need of an ENT.

Dr.Beckford is a great doctor.He did my surgery and restored my confidence in doctors.I was seen by several people prior but he took his time and explained my issues and today I am a 100% better. And yes I tell everyone he is the one to see.

I've had acute sinus & asthma problems for many years. I've seen many Dr's in TN,AR, and the Washington, DC area. Prior to Dr. Beckford, I was prescribed with so many inhalers & meds I had a hard time keeping up& still had many issues. May 2016 I had the balloon surgery and I am doing much better. I had an issue with some medication after the surgery that had nothing to do with Dr. Beckford's performance and he went well beyond his scope to ensure that I was taken care of . He is the BEST
in Memphis, TN |
I took a recommended test at a hospital over 3 weeks ago, but his nurse nor him have yet to give me the results. I have called the office and left several messages, but no one has given me the results of test yet. It's ridiculous!!!! This is my health. I am MOST DISAPPOINTED in their healthcare service.
Memphis |
He recognized I was extremely nervous and took time to help me calm down. He was very supportive; however, wait time was extremely LONG.
He did not take enough time to explain everything and it seemed all he wanted to do was order an MRI which was expensive, and I had already been to a GI Dr. who looked down my throat and had a CAT scan of my throat. Once the MRI was completed and I returned, all Dr. Beckford dis was glance at the MRI (5 seconds) and then referred me to a colleague of his for another co-pay and another huge expense. I am sure Dr. Beckford knew nothing else was wrong, but just wanted more money for the Clinic.
