He was incredibly patient and listened to my concerns. He explained more about what's going on and advised he was going to help me go in the right direction and instead of surgery referred me to a neurologist. I left feeling heard and hopeful for the 1st time in a long time.

I have seen this dr once and saw him for 5 mins. Very rude! Also called back to seek help again, symptoms are worsening... said he doesn't want to see me, I'm not a surgical candidate! Wow! Terrible, would never recommend to anyone!

Dr. Becherer has been an excellent provider and his office staff are top notch. I have had two cervical fusions performed by Dr. Becherer with better than expected outcomes each time. I would recommend him without reservation.

Dr. Becherer didn't spend a lot of time with me but I think he covered everything needed. He's very straightforward, something I value highly. He wasn't eager to press surgery on me, another plus. The office staff are superb.
