Patient Comments (3)
Dr. Beckhardt and his staff provided great care during my visits.
in Woodside, NY |
Dr. Beckhardt is one of the most dedicated doctors I have met. He and staff are very kind and efficient; they listened and spoke with me in a way that I could understand and feel safe. After my inicial medical examination, I called the doctor's office a few times with questions; Dr. Beckhardt quickly called me back each time to answer my questions and ease my concerns. I am very grateful for such an excellent service.

I have no doubt the Dr. is competent. I have seen him a few times. My problem is with spending my entire evening in the waiting room waiting to be seen. So, if you don't mind waiting hours to be seen by the Dr., by all means use this physician. I left my last appointment after I asked the receptionist how much longer it would be and she said there were 6 people ahead of me. I had a 5.50pm appointment and this was 6.30pm. This is the rule rather than the exception in this office.
