Verified Patient Reviews
Very knowledgeable and professional.
Great orthopedic surgeon who was not sellling surgery but rather giving every possible option to avoid it while being as active as possible. Highly recommended
Excellent Orthopedic doctor. It took me 10 min to fill out new patient forms. I waited only 2-3 min then. They took an X-ray immediately and the Doctor was over in a few min. He gave me a few treatment options to pick from and I was out. Highly recommended.
Very impressed with his assessment of my problem, and with his complete explanation of the procedures to be done by surgery.
This is a first class facility and they treat you very well. All their equipment is very new and latest technology.
The three-star rating for wait time had nothing to do with Dr. Becker. It was due to waiting for paperwork that was previously sent that had to be resent from my doctor because it was not in my chart and , also, insurance had to be re-verified as their database said my insurance was inactive when, in fact, it was verified to be active. I would highly recommend Dr. Becker and his staff. Dr. Becker was professional and knowledgeable and had excellent communication skills. He came highly recommended and I can see why. I live in Las Vegas and broke my wrist there and a cast was put on in Nevada. While vacationing in Florida, my cast needed to be removed. Even though I would not be a regular patient of Dr. Becker because I lived in Nevada, I was treated with dignity and respect even though I would not be returning to him for further treatment as I would be returning to Nevada in another week. X-rays were taken , cast removed and a removable brace was fitted in its place to continue the healing process. I was extremely pleased with my office visit. (With the exception of the paperwork and insurance problems.)
Great DR and very friendly and informative. I would highly recommend.
The PA was great but i have a question if i did not have lung problems would they have done surgery? I will return to this office if i need to and i also must say how friendly the staff was ! Thanks!
Very pleased. Dr. and staff were professional, friendly and caring
office was unaware of zocdoc and just had me fill forms again. same happened after "booking online" - office called me to explain that they don't really use zocdoc for reservations
I was happy with the doctors but frustrated with the lack of response when I called office twice in two weeks for pain medication prescription and received no response!
I waited for 5 minutes at most before being seen. Once I was taken back I was seen quickly as well. There is a lot of paperwork, but I made sure to do it before hand. I was seen by both a sports medicine doctor and an orthopedic. They communicated well so I did not have to repeat myself a lot. This was my first time there and it was a rather quick appointment as I have to go elsewhere for an MRI now. They were very friendly and quick and from what I saw of the facility it seems very nice.
Entire process was highly efficient but would suggest a chair or two near the check out desk for those of us in pain. Doctor answered all my questions and all staff had pleasant bedside manners.
Excellent, very professional and respectful.
Dr. Becker is very nice and doesn't want to rush into an unnecessary surgery. Office staff is very nice.
The front office staff were helpful and friendly. The doctor was knowledgeable, but didn't provide a lot of helpful information when I asked questions. He was vague and seemed bothered that I wanted more details.
Friendly, professional staff. Very nice facility. I was pleased with the treatment received.
Very good.. got right to my diagnosis and recommendations for treatment
Entire staff, reception, x-ray, PA and Doctor were great. Listened to my concerns and addressed all of them in a friendly, complete and professional manner. Appointment was not rushed in the least.
Nice office, cleaned and professional office staff. Would definitely recommend
I waited less than 5 minutes to get to my room. Less than 5 minutes to see Dr Becker. All the staff were personable and could take a joke including the Dr. Great office. Dr Becker explained my problem where you could understand it.
Although it took a VERY long time before I saw a doctor I was delighted to meet the PA for Dr. Becker. He was extremely nice and helpful. He answered all of my questions and made sure I was comfortable before I left the office. I do wish I would have know that I would see someone other than Dr. Becker and that my wait wasn't 1.5 hours.
The visit was great the people were nice and they knew what they were doing
Professional, through & has a fabulous office staff. X-ray tech was great too. So very glad I found this great office to care for me.
Dr Becker is...well AWESOME! He maintains a professional demeanor while keeping it real and speaking in terms the patient can understand. He's pleasant and takes the time to discuss options in detail and answers all questions. Highly recommend choosing Dr Becker as your Orthopedic.
He is very caring and understanding.
Loved everything about this office and the staff.
What a great experience. I had to drive 2 and a half hours to be seen by Dr. Becker and his team, it was worth every minute! So grateful to have him and his team in my network.
Wasn't to happy about the wait time plus I wasn't happy that I had to fill out all the paperwork in person when I did it online it just seemed like they didn't have everything in order plus I'm still confused bout my issue with my ankle one Dr told me broken and another told me sprained well it can't be both they are two very different issues I've missed work because no one can give me a straight answer not very happy at this point
Enjoyed meeting Dr. Becker. He was very through and explained options for my left knee. Additionally, provided information regarding other processes for knee pain.
Lovely facilities. Already plan to return and highly recommend!
Edward becker is an excellent doctor, great job.
My experience with the Doctor was great.
Dr.Becker was professional
The staff was pleasant; everyone had a smile on their face and were very personable, and professional.
Very nice and personable
He was amazing. I highly recommend him.
Friendly, concerned, easy to talk to even a joke or two. Explained everything and made sure we understood. Referred me to a neurosurgeon.
Dr. Becker was very professional explaining the issue and process for healing. The wait at check in was a bit long. Over one hour on this day. The staff were all very courteous and helpful. I would think the office wit could be reduced if they would offer to have the paper work completed on line... Just my thoughts.
Very nice and to the point
He was very professional and courteous. He's very knowledgeable in what he is doing. I have no complaints about the wait time.
It was my first visit, I was sort of apprehensive because I was in so much pain for so long. I thought I was going to need surgery right away after my X-rays were taken the final result was a Cortisone shot to my right knee. I was impressed with the kindness and patience of my doctor, He came up with a great treatment plan and I am thoroughly satisfied thank you and keep up the Excellent care
Great bedside manner and attentive friendly staff.
The doctor is great and he knows what he is doing. However, I had to wait for too long.
He is so professional and knows what he is doing! Just moved here from KC and had a bad experience. Dr. Becker is a refreshing change! Highly recommend!
A great and good.professional in jis field of medicine.
Better than most
This system doesnt work
very professional, knowledgeable.
everything went wonderful!
He didnt even look at MRI and basically told me I wasnt old enough to have fraying of my rotator cuff. Which happened during a car accident. Would never use again
staff very friendly, waiting time was not bad, doctor very nice and trustful.
I was scheduled for 9:30. We got there at 9:10 to fill out the redicilous amount of paperwork. People that came after us were brought to a room before us. When we were finally called back, the nurse was very nice then we waited another 10 min before seeing Dr. He decided a cyst needed to be drained. He left to get supplies. After waiting another 10 min. I stepped out to see where the doctor was. He was with another patient. It took 2 min to drain the cyst. We left quickly because I was now late for work. We were there more than 2 hours for a 2 minute procedure. I will never come back!
I trufully recomend this Doctor to anyone I was really in bad stress do to the possible Surgery and once he look at my results it was another story . he really take the time you need to explain what you have and the recomondation are great . Thank You Dr. becker your the best .. May Godbless you always..

Very good treatment helped me with my pain quickly
