Came to the doctor with a very specific question. The doctor spent 85% of the time by the computer typing something, then looked at my ears and told me not to use cotton swabs around them, which had nothing to dowith my issue. Gave me some "test" homeopathic drug (which did absolutely nothing). Wasted time.

Had nasal endoscopy. It didn't hurt at all. Dr. Beckhardt was very skillful. He took time to listen to my symptoms and explained to me what's most likely happening very clear. The lady at front desk was nice and friendly, themedial assistant was also professional. The office is clean and spacious. I would recommend 100%!!

I had a great experience. The wait time was over an hour but the doctor explained that he had to remove a foreign object from someones throat prior to seeing me! Im glad he took his time with that patient :) I definitely reccommend Dr. Beckhardt.

Takes over an hour to get in for your appointment and then they can't even fill put a prescription properly for a CAT SCAN. Have to find a new doctor and start all over again. Never again.

I want to recommend Dr. Beckhardt because when you eventually get to see him he is a very kind and knowledgeable doctor, but the wait times to see him are absurd and he referres me for a cat scan without aprescription. So I have wasted 4 1/2 hours and counting waiting to be seen by him or people he has reffered me to. No offense, but there have to be other doctors who do ENT who can get it together and see me closer to my actual appointment times.

My interaction with this office wasn't a pleasant one. After signing in with the receptionist, I was asked if I would like to use table or fill out paper. I said I'll electronically fill out info then was handed a clipboard with paper. I waited one hour listening to the most insipid children programming I have ever heard. After going through the usual prescreening stuff, I finally saw the doctor. I espressed my problems and concerns which one of my problems was in my nose. The doctor proceeds to jab the rhinoscope up my nose even though i told him I usually have pain. He barely gets into my nose and uses tone of voice "don't touch my scope" while raising my hands in massive pain. I repeated that it hurt the doctor sprays stuffs up my nose and tries again like my 1st please aren't heard. Then silence as he types then he begins to step out & I ask what did he see? He tries to usher to hearing test and when I express my discomfort he tells me all the reason why I need to get hearing exam with no empathy to the additional discomfort he caused. If you value your ¤time,? health & YOU DON'T WANT PAIN ?STAY AWAY FROM THIS PROVIDER?

Dr. Beckhardt is probably the best doctor that has ever treated me. He cares & he takes his time. I had a very complicated case and he took it rather than turn me away. The surgery he gave me was a life changing experience & I will be forever grateful.

Dr. Beckhardt knows what he is doing, but he is not the warmest or most welcoming doctor. He looked at the computer 90% of the time and at me 10% of the time. It seemed like he was documenting every wordwe said to each other. When I left, I didn't feel reassured because I didn't feel like he really took into account what I was saying or feeling. He referred me to a neurologist but I didn't go because I still thought I had an ENT issue. However, his office did contact me several times to check on whether I'd gone to the neurologist yet, which I was impressed by.

I have seen many otolaryngologists through the years due to frequent sinus infections. Dr Beckhardt ranks at the top of the class of practicing ENTs. I have been treated wonderfully each visit and he's been knowledgeable, accommodating andpleasant in every way. You couldn't ask for a better doctor in this field.

I had to wait more than an hour to talk to the very rude and discourteous Dr. Beckhardt for less than 15 minutes. His prognosis was something that I was expecting from WebMD but not from a "specialist". They couldn't waitto get rid of me fast enough and signed me up for a follow up appointment which to me it translates to trying to get more money out of my insurance. Never again!
