Verified Patient Reviews
I have been to many ENTs over my 52 yrs and Dr Becker is the Best! I would highly recommend him or his Brother Dan to anyone looking for an ENT and I have including my own father.
Dr was very nice, and he was thorough. Extremely pleasant, answered questions, took time with me, and didn't make me feel like he was rushing to the next patient. Wait time to see him was average for most doctors these days, I suppose. Office staff were also very pleasant.
Dr. Becker was pleasant and professional. I was extremely pleased with his care of my mother.
Great! Made me feel very comfortable and relaxed.
Straight to the point with the diagnosis.
Dr Becker was very ggod listener and was willing to help find a solution for my snoring problem
Very nice Dr, and hopefully he helps me with my current nose and throat problems. I will be back to see him again!
Dr S Becker was friendly and down to earth. He explained everything well and welcomed questions. We look forward to working with him in the future.

He is nice doctor, and he answers all the questions.
Good experience with doctors but wait time was unacceptable
Dr. Becker was wonderful. The visit with him went better then I expected. Not only did he listen to all of my concerns, but he also addressed all them. The visit wasn't rushed. Dr. Becker took the time to understand my situation and really seemed like he cared for my well-being. I high recommend this doctor. Thanks Dr. Becker.
Very good except for the extremely long and inconsiderate wait
Everyone was very nice and accommodating since I had my three year old with me. The doctor was very professional friendly and explained to me what he thought was my issue. Overall great experience!
All good. My feedback is for you all at ZocDoc...
Professional and collegial .
Always provide excellent medical service and sound advice in a patient centric environment.
He made me feel comfortable and dispelled my fears about the procedures. Glad I found him.
I have no issue other than waiting over an hour was a bit much.
Professional Knowledgeable Makes patient comfortable Pleasant Not a "surgery first" type of Dr. Explains medical conditions and options clearly
Very courteous staff, efficient and professional care, and good treatment plan.
Office staff was pleasant, courteous and professional. Dr Becker was thorough and efficient. He willingly spent time answering my questions. He has a desire to get to the root cause of problems and not just write a prescription. I appreciate that. If you are a new patient there will be significant paperwork to fill out so arrive early. Some of the paperwork seemed like overkill.
He was fantastic. Asked questions and listened to what you had to say. Excellent professional with great bedside manners
Very impressed. He was thorough and very knowledgeable.
Dr. Becker is an excellent doctor!
I think the schedule was totally off,he was running behind in his appointments.I had a 8.30 appt and he didnt see me until it was 9.15 am.I am very dissatisfied with the wait I had to do.
Doctor took the time to listen to why I was coming to see him and I feel he was thorough in the exam. Very good in answering questions too!
I was referred to Dr. Becker when an ER visit and a visit with a different ENT doctor were both ineffective in the treatment of an emergency nosebleed. I am so grateful I ended up in Dr. Becker’s hands. He treated me in his office and then a few days later he performed surgery in the hospital to cauterize an artery in my nose to finally stop the bleeding. Dr. Becker is such a kind doctor and you can tell he really cares about his patients. He even gave me his cell in case of emergency between my initial visit and surgery. I am now seeing Dr. Becker for follow up appointments from the surgery. He is always warm and personable and he has a great sense of humor which makes for a very pleasant office visit.
He was so much better than previous ENT doctors I have seen! He clearly explained why I was having sinus issues, and laid out a plan for resolving it. He gave me some medicine so the examination was not uncomfortable at all. He was very easy to talk to. A wonderful experience!
He has always been a great physician and have been using him for years
The doctor was pleasant and clearly knows his business. I had to wait over 30 minutes to see the doc. The receptionist (first impression for this new patient) did not extend herself at all - low energy, minimal communication, borderline sullen. Could use some coaching. The nurse(?) who took my vitals was pleasant; when she later was at the reception desk booking a follow-up appointment, she, too, mumbled and was not terribly engaged. Perhaps influenced by her colleague.
A good start
Very professional Staff and doctor... They were also very polite... ??
I appreciate doctors who are to-the-point, but yet answer my questions. Dr. Becker is knowledgeable, gave me a full picture of my issue, and gave me his honest opinion about reasonable treatments. Would recommend.
Dr. Becker was VERY helpful AND informative. Explained things to me that other doctors have not. Thanks!!!!
excellent. professional. great listener.
Very helpfui and more than willing to help with timetable for my needs. Explained everything, answeared questions, set up appointments.
Once I was in the exam room the visit was very professional. Dr. Becker was very straight forward in his exam and in his presentation of the various options I had. No pressure to get things done in a certain way or in a particular time period. Good "bedside" manners.
Dr. Becker is great!
Outstanding visit..very friendly and knows what he is doing. I will be going back
Loved that he was no-nonsense and had a sense of humor. The girls in his office were a joy and I would highly recommend anyone that has suffered with sinus issues to RUN to Dr. Becker before wasting anymore of your time and money elsewhere. SO glad my primary recommended Dr. Becker to me!
Even with Zocdoc, I had to fill out another 10 or 12 forms. This is so stupid! Who is going to stop this paper work madness?!?
He was nice and to the point.He answered all my questions.
Great doctor and great staff!!
Dr. Becker is the best! A great doctor who listens and has a fabulous personality....
Dr. Becker was paitent & kind. He took time to explain everything & answer all of my questions. I would highly recommend him!!
Very personable doctor. Drove over an hour just so that I could be seen by him.
Doctor was fine but did not appreciate over an hour wait to be seen by doctor.
Wait time was way too long. Misleading to make it very convenient to schedule an appointment but then you wait a long time. Not sure whether this is a ZocDoc thing or a doctor thing but it was no good.
The wait was worth it! Loved everything about him! Would definitely recommend him to others. Glad I found him!
Dr. Becker is very professional...a no-nonsense approach. Everybody was very nice.
Dr. Becker was very nice and efficient. He listened to my symptoms, examined me and then discussed my medical options. I would recommend him to my family and friends.
Felt very comfortable. Easy to talk to about your concerns.
Always rushed and generally unhelpful. Would not recommend.
Very helpful dr and staff. I finally left a drs office feeling like I had an answer.
Awesome doctor with a great sense of humor.
Great doctor and great office! I didn't expect anything fancy, and yes, it is clean, modern, well-run office, plenty of parking, easy to find. What else do you need? Waiting time is reasonable, I had to wait for about an hour, which is NORMAL in modern-time healthcare. Will recommend to family and friends.
Dr Backer was very professional and nice. However, the wait was very very very long ~90 min :-(
I was pleasantly surprised with the great directions to the office,and the women were very nice to deal with,with my insurance info also. the doctor was very nice, very concerned very thorough with his evaluation of my condition. I will highly recommend this office to everyone who needs a e.n.t. doctor. Thank You so much . D.J.Fletcher
I thought Dr. Becker was excellent. He was very down to earth and extremely knowledgable. I would refer my friends and family to Dr. Becker- actually, I already have.
It was a very pleasant visit. the office staff was very courteous and efficient.
Looking forward to going back!
Dr. Becker is gentle and congenial. He answered all of my questions.
My first visit. I was very favorably impressed.
He is the best of the best - at the top of the game. Don't bother going anywhere else. This gentleman knows his profession.
Thorough and knowledgeable.
It took time to be seen as it's the first time to visit the office, i.e. some paperworks. I was well treated and planned for the next visit.
He has mapped out a course of action that I believe will resolve my sinus issues - Very professional. The long wait time was due to the additional paperwork that I had to fill out and not the doctor's schedule.
Dr. Becker was professional, friendly and understood the nature of my concerns. I had a very thorough discussion and exam that was directed toward my health issue and left feeling confident that I had chosen the right doctor to take care of me. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Becker and his staff are a class act. I would recommend him and his practice very highly. Dr. Becker was very thorough, answered all my questions. He didn't rush through my appointment and never made me feel rushed either. He listened to what I had to say and I was very satisfied with his recommended course of treatment.
Excellent, precise, thorough, informative and friendly. I you need an ENT or are thinking of making a change make it Dr. Becker.
He is very knowledgeable and has a nice demeanor. Would highly recommend!
Dr. Was professional. Took time to answer all my questions. There was no waiting. I was seen at my appointment time. All in all a very good experience.
Very knowlegeable doctor.
I don't know why people recommend him for vertigo treatment. He doesn't even know the epley maneuver. He just suggested me to go to a rehab and get results from there. I drove 2 hours to visit him after reading all the positive reviews. Very disappointed.
if needed a great doctor to see...
Staff very personable. Dr. was very well mannered and polite. He got right to the point, He was vry knowledgeable.
Did not listen to me well.
Very good doctor, very professional.
very nice and professional
Very pleased with my visit and the medical care I was given.
very pleasant and thorough
Very nice and listened to what I had to say even with a very busy office full of patients he took the time to explain some options and came up with a solid game plan.
Dr. Becker was very informative as to what was happening with my sinus. There is still more testing but worth it. After a treatment of nasal spray he gave me, I was finally able to breathe normally again and it clear the mucus from my throat.
I was very happy with Dr. Becker's services. I would recommend him to someone else.
leary of drs, but we actually liked this man, seems genuine and we were not rushed through our medical history. Definitly a positive visit!
fine so far, polite, informative and will return in several days for followup. A Damico
It was my first visit and things went well
I would definitely recommend Dr. Becker. He went above and beyond!
A very good doctor!
Very reassuring Very knowledgable everyone I know with this issue will see this doctor he has become my family's ENT doctor!
Great doctor who absolutely explains things in easy to understand language. Highly recommended!
My initial choice in seeing Dr. Samuel Becker was based on the excellent patient reviews online. Unfortunately my experience was not the same. Although Dr. Becker may be an excellent specialist I was quite disappointed with his bedside manner in the initial consultation. Because I like to exercise my right of autonomy as a patient I had many questions on what would be his recommended course of treatment, however I felt that Dr. Becker did not answer my questions directly and was rather evasive on the details. That being said, I did not feel comfortable returning for surgery and will be looking for another specialist. Based on other excellent reviews online I expect I caught Dr. Becker on an 'off' day and am sharing my experience in the hopes that no other patient experiences the same. Sincerely, D.
Office staff professional & friendly. Dr Becker gave treatment options and recommendations in straight forward manner. Highly recommend
He's a very nice Dr; I scheduled surgery with him... Very knowledgable
it was good general speaking
I actually enjoyed interaction with the doctor and his friendly staff.
I didn't like what he had to do to test me but that's because I don't like my nose touched.But he seemed to be very nice and helpful.
Kind and informative
Great doctor. Very friendly and explains everything.
I think he is one of the most competent, kind, understanding and compassionate physicians I have ever seen in over 13 years of disabling illnesses. I left the office the happiest I have been in a long time.
Takes too long, paperwork should be done online. After waiting for some time in the exam room,Dr came in started the exam then left in the middle of exam on the pretense he needed something and went to another exam room with another patient, came back in about 15 min. the whole experience is too long. Patients have lives also, health must be maintained but do not have full hrs. to dedicate to a 5-10min.exam. It's too much about how many patients you can squeeze in and how much money you can make. Forget about the people, I don't even know why I'm typing this.
Aside from the Hour and fifteen minute wait time, the visit was productive and resulted in my breathing better than I have in decades, and I am not even done with all my testing. I would recommend Dr. Becker to anyone with sinus/breathing issues.
GREAT. Friendly & knowledgeable Doc and staff. Makes you feel right at home. I've live in the Midwest and the South, so it's pleasing to see "southern" hospitality up here in NJ. :)
Dr. Becker is exceptional. I have had chronic ear and sinus problems all of my life - surgeries, infections, hearing loss, etc. . . I've seen a lot of ENT specialists over 45 years. Dr. Becker uses up to date technology; he knows his pharmacology. I was especially happy that he was nonplussed when he viewed my ears (they are bad - I've actually had other doctors stop and call in staff and say, "You've got to see this! It's surprising that you hear as well as you do.")
It was pleasant and fast
Dr. Becker is a great doctor. He is very nice, and has a great sense of humor. Not only did he do all he can to help me with the vertigo I am experiencing, he also let me know that I suffer from allergies, which I was not aware of! I appreciate the extra attentiveness to my health!
Doctor was fine but had to fill out 7 pages of questionare before waiting another 1/2 hr. to see the doctor. Arrived at 3:00 for a 3:15 appointment, left at 4:50
Highly professional. Listened to my concerns and questions. Laid out excellent treatment regime
Dr. Becker was knowledgeable,easy to talk to and offered me different treatment options.
Very good appointment, informative.
Very skilled and proffessional doctor
He was very personable, humorous, and efficient. Great experience!
A very competent doctor with a good personality. The office wait time was long for y particular visit, but one visit is not a pattern, so it's not clear if that's the norm.
Was really good and kind, clarified all by doubts
Loved the staff!
The worst doctor I have never seen in my life.
Dr. Samuel Becker was very calming and reassuring as well as patient with me. I was very apprehensive over my visit, not a big fan of pain. To my surprise there was none!! I would recommend him to anyone.

His patience for multiple questions was very good.
Dr. Becker was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely see him again!
Dr. Samuel S. Becker is a very compassionate and caring doctor.
