I didn’t have anything major to be fixed, but it was annoying. Dr. Becker and his PA took their time with me and explained all my options. Will definitely go back to Dr. Becker in Riverview if the need arises. Thewhole experience was pleasant, from the office to the check in, X-ray and treatment.

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 optionsto pick from and I was out. Highly recommended.

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.)

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 botha 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.

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 beforeI 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.

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 witcould be reduced if they would offer to have the paper work completed on line... Just my thoughts.

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 Cortisoneshot 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
