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.

Has anyone else been asked to strip down to only their panties with a paper gown open to the front. I was not there for a breast exam and that's about what I got. I WAS THERE FOR MY THROID!!I I will not be going back!

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.
