My son had an emergency appendectomy and Dr Beck preformed the procedure. Dr Beck was the best in explaining the situation and reassuring my son and myself about the procedure. He calmed and consoled my son to make a more pleasant experience from a very scary situation.we would highly recommend Dr Beck. Thanks
Happy that we were able to turn a scary experience into a positive one.
Came highly recommended and I'm so glad I listened. Incredible attention to detail and explains things very well. Sometimes, he may speak to his patients for a long time and run a little behind schedule. But, totally worth the wait!!
Thank you for the kind review; I will try and keep an eye on the clock :).

Dr. Beck has a amazing office staff! Beck himself is not only a hack but a lier. My wife had surgery by this man. She was told by him that she would not be in any pain immediately fallowing . she woke up with the worst pain of her life . a recovery time of 45 mins after was quoted. she spent 2 1/2 hours in recovery. Every other patients loved ones were notified after surgery by the surgeon on how it went, not me. I sat worried. Beck then went on leave and has not spoken to me or my wife since.
Unfortunately, this review was left by an upset significant other of one of my patients. She was not aware of, and completely disagreed with this review. She has assured me that she has tried multiple times to have it removed, but has gotten nowhere with Healthgrades. I have called and left multiple messages and emails; a Healgrades representative has never replied. There were some minor issues with this patient that have been addressed, but on the whole this review is untrue and slanderous.

We were introduced to Dr. Beck in the ER at Shasta Regional Hospital in a life threatening situation. Dr. Beck is kind, extremely wise, respectful, resourceful and conscientious. From the moment we met him, Dr. Beck has consistently taken whatever time is needed to explain to us the surgeries and follow up ... he stays with us until every last question is answered in manner that is easily understood. My family will be forever grateful that Dr. Beck was on call that night!
