Dr. Becker was unable to provide a simple ENT service i.e. earwax removal; he did not have the necessary magnification equipment. Subsequently I went to another ENT physician for this - and the positive results were remarkable. Lastly - his office failed to process billing forms properly.

Dr Becker performed a sepotplasty and turbinate surgery to improve my breathing, and in both cases he didn’t even finish the job! I’ve seen another ENT and he says that there is still septal cartiladge and an enlargened turbinate obstructing my breathing. Apparently this may have been “too difficult” for Becker to get to. If thats the case, then why offer to perform surgery if you know you can’t do the job the right way!

AMAZING! I have waited 6 months post op to make sure before writing this. Backdrop: I had reoccuring sinus infections for 10 years. I had seen 4 other local ENTs over the years and never felt comfortable enough with any of them to go through with surgery. In 2019 I had 6 infections over 9 months. They were awful. I had migranes, face pressure, exhausted. I have two teens and I couldn't keep up. We have a great social life and I had to keep canceling on friends. It was depressing. Then Dr Samuel Becker! He felt confident he could help me. In the past, whenever someone in my house had a cold, I would catch it and within days it would turn into a full blown sinus infection. Post Surgery -every member of my house has been sick twice and NOT ME!!!! Its unreal. Once I thought I was getting a cold and Dr Samuel Becker told me which nasal spray to try. Within 2 days I felt great and never got sick. He's a miracle. He's also got great bedside manner. Very caring. Highly recco!!

Dr. Becker has been a pleasure to work with, he was able to get to the bottom of my sinus issues after seeing another ENT for a year prior with no solutions. Dr. Becker made me feel comfortable and confident in my decision to opt for sinus surgery. I have seen significant improvement in my breathing and chronic sinus issues since the sinus surgery/septoplasty 5 months ago. I highly recommend Dr. Becker as he really takes the time to listen and answer any questions you may have.

Your office in Robinsonville NJ found out I had server sleep Apena on 4/25/18. They wait until I had my appointment to tell me I had sleep apnea on 5/10/18. I have been have night sweats etc.. and it truly scary. I called the office on May 15, to find out when I was going to receive Auto PAP machine. I called again today to find out they just called Montgomery medical equipment company on May 18, 2018. Now I have to wait for my insurance company to approve auto PAP machine.

I met Dr. Becker over a year ago. I was hesitant about getting sinus surgery for my Chronic Sinusitis. I went back to him a year later and he moved right through the process and after meeting him I was having surgery a month later. I am now 2 months post surgery and I cannot begin to describe the relief I feel. The entire process with Dr.Becker was precise, clear and simple. He was thorough in explaining the surgery. I am so thankful I moved forward with it. I highly recommend Dr. Becker.

My wife and son were patients of Dr. Becker and were very satisfied with his work. It was a no brained for me to get treatment from him. I had seen another doctor for my snoring and sleep issues and he recommended an operation that would have had a very long recovery time. Dr Becker recommended starting with repairing my deviated septum before trying the more involved operation and said with certainty I will breath much better. It was a 3 day recovery and I've been feeling great ever since !

I went to Dr Becker after experiencing three sinus infections in 6 months. Dr Becker examined me, cultured my sinus and sent me for a facial CAT scan. The scan revealed a fractured molar creating a fistula which allowed Strep bacteria to migrate from my mouth to my sinuses. Long story short, Dr Becker recommended surgery for my deviated nasal septum and sinuses. Here we are 2 months post-op and I couldn't be happier. On a scale of 1-10, I give Dr Becker a 10!

Dr. Sam was/is a godsend for my sinus problems which include growing polyps like a farmer, deviated septum, horrible drainage, etc. He fixed it ALL in my surgery this past Feb. and an AWESOME side effect, which is I no longer have any allergies to speak of after the surgery. Straight shooter, down to earth and he doesn't push surgery, meds, etc. He discusses all options and allows the patient to decide.

To avoid waiting time I scheduled my appointment for 8:30 in the morning. Walked in the office as first patient and receptionist informed me the doctor is already in. To my surprise after waiting about 1/2 hour along with another 4 patients doctor walked in from outside. It took another 1/2 before my name was called in. When he finally saw me I felt like I was wasting his time and he hardly answer my questions pertaining to my condition.Very arrogant.Needles to say was first and last visit

I went to see Dr. Becker about 5 years ago...I had suffered from chronic sinus problems since I was a teenager. It took two minor operations, but I am today much improved, and am able to live a normal life. I would definitely recommend Dr. Becker.

Awesome doctor! Great bedside manner and truly cares for his patients. As my internist (who referred me to him) says, he's the same caliber as someone you would find at UPenn or Hopkins, but he's right in Robbinsville. I've been to many specialists for surgeries and chronic sinus issues, and he's been the best by far!

I went into Dr. Becker after chronic nosebleeds to assess my situation. He was very helpful in explaining what was going on and told me I had a deviated septum. He told me different choices I could make to help but I decided to have surgery. It is six weeks past and I've never had a more smooth experience with a doctor. My nose feels great and enjoy going back for visits. (Great, courteous, staff too!) Highly recommend.

I went in for chronic sinusitis and after trying steroid nasal sprays, etc.. I had a cat scan which showed I needed surgery. I had a septoplasty as well as turbinate reduction. I'm 6 months out of surgery and my quality of life has improved drastically. I used to get sick every other month and besides one occurrence of congestion (2 days). The healing process was unbelievably painless and comfortable. Dr. Becker is very skilled at what he does as well as an easy person to talk to.

Had deviated septum surgery done by another dr. 13 years ago. Was a terrible experience. Met with Dr. Becker because nasal passages were being blocked again. He reccomended surgery but assured me that his method was for more advanced than what I had to deal with before. The surgery went great and recovery was awesome. He has great bedside manner and is very engaging explaining the procedure. He has always been available and can set appoitments up quickly. Great Doctor!

I had a few appointments with Dr. Becker along with a septoplasty for my deviated septum. My whole experience throughout this process was 100% positive. The procedure has literally changed my life and my breathing is amazing now. Before the surgery, my breathing was worse than anyone I knew. It's now the opposite! I would always recommend Dr. Becker.

I was assured by his staff that he was on my insurance tier. I came in for an appointment and paid my $50 co-pay. A few weeks later, I received a bill for over $350 where I was charged for an Endoscopy, which is a surgical procedure using an endoscope. He did not use an endoscope, he looked up my nose with a small flashlight. This is blantant insurance fraud. He was not in my tier of insurance. He will be reported.
