Patient Comments (4)
Shepherdsville, KY |
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!
LEBANON, KY |
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.
in Bardstown, KY |
From my initial contact to his office to my follow up appointment, this dr and his staff are top notch. Very upfront about prognosis, risks and cost. I have referred several to this office. The staff treats you like family and I never felt rushed. Immediate relief after my lumbar laminectomy. I walked out of the hospital after my outpatient procedure. Wonderful experience for a person like me that's very fearful of surgery at my young age.
in Bethlehem, KY |
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.
