I have seen Dr. Becker annually for 12 years, since he diagnosed my thyroid cancer - I find him to be compassionate, knowledgeable, and extremely thorough. He has always spent as much time as necessary to answer questions and alleviate my concerns. He has shown me the utmost compassion, and I can’t imagine trusting my health to anyone else. I highly recommend him, and his PA, Petra.

Dr Becker is a first-class endocrinologist. He is brilliant, totally up to date, thorough, personable, kind, understanding and best of all, he has a fabulous sense of humor. I have been seeing him for many years, and I do recommend him to everyone with thyroid and diabetes issues. He is the man! BTW, I had to laugh at the woman who commented that she wasn't there for a breast exam... very funny, but an endocrinologist is a gland man, and guess what breasts are... mammary GLANDS, DOH!

FACEBOOK ENTRY Medical Ethics: There is none because it seems that the bottom line of a profit and lost statement is more important than the welfare of the patients. Even if a person has a real medical situation and can’t make it to the doctor’s office they still charge a person a fee for not showing up as scheduled. What gives a doctor or any other person the right to charge you for service they did not perform. They say their time is important but so is the customers time too.

Very snooty and suffers from a severe superiority complex. More interested in his winery than his patients. Autocratic and unfeeling.

Dr. BECKER was able to diagnose me with lingual thyroid and was able to control all my symptoms and regulate my thyroid, after another Dr. had thought I was suffering from depression and prescribed depression medication.

Thorough and firm guidance through thyroid cancer diagnosis and recommended action. He made a very good referral to surgeon. Follow-up care and balancing hormone replacement has been spot on. The only issue is the phone system advising responses within 48 hours. That is not a reasonable amount of time for medical questions.
