Verified Patient Reviews
I felt horrible when I went in and he was wonderful and very thorough. His front desk staff (Alisha) was very welcoming, caring, charming, helpful and pleasant to deal with even though I wasn't feeling well!
Dr Berh is a great Dr. Very direct and I feel like he is very knowledgeable and genuinely cares about the welfare of his patients. His entire staff was awesome!!! They were super nice very kind and courteous. As a new patient I am very pleased with the care received.
I'm usually a nervous wreck to go see any doctor, but visiting Dr. Behr's office was surprising pleasant. From check in and check out. I can't explain how seeing a happy, smiling, and welcoming check in team put me at ease about being in a doctor's office. My favorite thing was how well the appointment time stayed on schedule. I looked around the busy waiting room and thought to myself "oh boy I'll be here awhile" and pulled out my book I brought just for the occasion. But to my surprise I didn't get past the first sentence before they called my name. During my exam everything was explained to me from start to finish. I had been dreading my yearly check up for nothing. I highly recommend Dr. Behr and his staff to anyone who is looking for a friendly medical experience.
Alicia and Pamela (PA) are extremely great to work with!!
He was great!
I think he's a nice doctor in general , very professional and the amount of time spent in the office was great. Very quick, however i don't like the fact that my main issue with my neck and back pain was completely dismissed and was not brought up or acknowledged even though i clearly told the MA i have had pain from the middle of my back to my neck, also feeling very weak and fatigued most days and really wanted to get the doctor's recommendation. I really don't think i'll be going back because i took off of work just to not have my issues addressed yet alone treated. I think if he would ask the patient and listened to what the patient has to say (because clearly its in the chief complaint), he would be an outstanding physician to have.
Dr. Behr is a nice and well spoken doctor who showed genuine interest in my well being. He answered my questions in an educated manner and I will be seeing him again the next time I need a check up. I was very pleased. A+
Very good doctor, intensely passionate about healthcare and the impact having poor health has on life.
I only had to wait a few minutes for Dr. Behr once I was brought to the exam room and once he arrived he was very efficient and friendly. I will definitely be a regular!
Dr. Behr was kind, patient, thorough and knowledgeable! We are new to the area and will definitely be using him as our PCP!
He was very kind, professional and straightforward, which I absolutely appreciate in my doctor. I am new to the area and if things continue to progress he will be my PCP.
Didn't really feel like the doctor wanted to spend any time on me, had no interest in me as a person, wanted me in and out as quickly as possible.
Front desk representatives are worst !
Everyone was polite and well mannered. They were professional when speaking about the process and what went into it.
Professional, intelligent, and caring physician, came very Highly recommended, and It was apparent those reviews were accurate. Staff also were very professional.. Would definitely recommend Dr Behr!
Bedside manner was not good at all. Doctor acted as if I was lying about the pain I was having and came up with nothing on EKG or Xray's. Also referred to me as morbidly obese while using his dictation software in his office, I know i may be overweight but I'm not looking for a doctor that cant handle discussing the issues with a lighter tone.
The whole staff and dr. Behr were very polite and professionals
Dr. Behr was backed up the day of my appointment and it was about an hour after my appt time that they finally called my name. All of the staff members were very friendly though and apologized numerous times about the wait. Once I was in the room Dr. Behr was quick to see me and handle my case. He has a great bedside manner and was very pleasant. I will likely be coming back next time I have any health issues.
Very impressed not only with Dr. Behr but his staff as well. The receptionist at the front was extremely sweet and helpful. My previous doctor, whom I was with for almost five years, retired and I was a little nervous about trying a new one. I'm glad I chose Dr. Behr; he brought up topics and made recommendations that my old doctor never even mentioned!
Front personnel can be a little more professional.
I found him to be arrogant and unwilling to listen to what I told him about the amount of pain I was in and my reaction to the medication another doctor put me on. When I said "I took the medication and over an hour later I was in so much pain I started to cry" I was told "It's working, you're just not giving it a chance." Good to know he cares more about preventing a patient from getting the pain medicine they need than helping someone out of pain. I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO THIS DOCTOR.
dr very careing staff so what nice.
He was very honest but empathic about my health and what I need to change and do better with.
Very professional and caring , great staff too.
When I first met him he seemed a bit uninterested and uneasy, which made me feel worse about my medical condition. Didn't smile laugh joke not once was very strong with demeanor like all he cared about was getting my information, writing down drugs prescriptions and sending me on my way. I wasn't interested in going back to see him again but over time he warms up to his patients. I wouldn't recommend him if you have a soft heart because he can be straight forward and he is very blunt.
Great 1st visit. Made me feel very comfotable, being a new patient. Even able to make an appt. online, where many offices are hard to get in being a new patient. (Great office staff too) Used computer to input info as we talked and INSTANTLY sent my prescriptions to our pharmacy! And gave a printout as to the reason for visit and meds prescibed!
A most wonderful person both professionally and personally.
For some reason my confirmed appt. via ZocDoc was not in the Dr's computer system. So, it caused a small delay in the waiting room.
It was without any problem as every step of the way ran perfectly even with the nurses, giving one a sense of being in the hands of professionals.
There were issues integrating the patient information I added to Zoc Doc with their software system.
I enjoyed Dr. Behr quite a bit. He was friendly, thorough and answered any questions I had without making me feel like I was taking up too much time. The only reason for the delay in the office was because they are switching into a new EMR system which will certainly help speed things a long in the future, as well as give me easier access to my health information. I have no issues with the wait time.
Quite a long wait time just to see him for a total of about 10 minutes. Appointment time was 9:15. He didn't walk into the exam room until around 10:15. Admittedly, this is a rare occurrence with Dr. Behr but though I would note it.
We really appreciated the time he took with our son, and especially the details he asked for and then documented. I highly recommend this man.
Dr. Behr and staff are great. Very professional and compassionate. Easy setup for new patient. I will definitely see Dr. Behr again for all my medical needs.
I plan to return and will recommend him to others.
Very considerate and willing to listen to you. Didn't make me feel rushed at all.
His staff and Dr. Behr himself provided the best service and experience I've had. I can't recommend him enough!
Good doctor. Definitely listened to what I was saying.
Staff was very polite, professional, attentive, and overall just wonderful. I was in and out of the office within 1 hr.
Front desk staff very friendly. Doc came in quickly after nurse got vitals. Diagnosed, prescribed with efficiency. Very professional and courteous. Really appreciated personal attention!
Very understanding and helpful. Grateful he could help
Appt was at 10:00am and did not got to see the doc till 11:15. Had a few items I wanted to discuss at the end but felt rushed out.
I thought that everyone was very personable and friendly. I did not have to wait very long. Dr. Behr was knowledgeable and explained everything in detail.
He did a great job explaining everything to me in terms where I could understand them. He made me feel very comfortable. Even walked me out at the end of my appointment. Two thumbs up!
Dr. Behr was a good dude - he gave me advice about my health issues without sugar coating it, but was still a nice guy about it.
Average definitely not very easy to open up to without feeling judged
Nice guy. Comfortable atmosphere
I've been going to Dr. Behr for over 20 years. I've always felt respected and appreciated. He's always been willing to answer any questions I've had over the years.
very kind, wants to get to know his patients.
Very thorough. He allows enough time with you to ask questions and he listens. His office is in a professional building with labs available to do further testing which makes the visit even more convenient. I am really pleased with my experience here. Dr. Behr is very impressive. I will be referring friends and family both to him.
Visit went great, filled out typical paperwork as a first time visitor, waited maybe 10 mintues when finished to be called back and only waited about 5 minutes for my exam. Highly recommended plus the staff was very nice as well.
Excellent. Dr. Behr was and seemed to genuinely care about my well-being. Something I wanted in looking for a primary care doctor. Found him on zoc doc.
