Dr. Bekker is the best psychiatrist I have seen so far and I have seen many. Many psychiatrists, I find, are biased and/or generally whacky. Dr Bekker was very professional and incredibly knowledgeable. What I liked is that she was concise.She didn’t have to ask me a million questions to understand what I’m going through. She really listened and understood quickly. She recommends therapy to everyone, which I think is great. She gave me the resources I needed to find a therapist as well.

She seems like a great doctor. Just not for me. I went there for a specific reason and put it in my notes as to why. No one contacted me to let me know she didn’t offer what I was lookingfor. But I hate calling which is why I use zocdoc to begin with. I should of called first. I had also filled out all the info via zocdoc and they still made me fill everything out over again. She told me I would have to find a different doctor and then come back to her. It was a waste of my time. She didn’t really want to discuss the issue I needed help with. She immediately started pushing drugs on me and thats not my cup of tea. Just call and make sure she covers what you are looking for.

The dr was very nice but I made an appointment to begin therapy & after I explained to her that I did not want to take medications & she even shared that she also considers medications a last resort she stillkept speaking to me about prescribing medication, asked me a few times if I wanted the prescriptions & wasn’t any help at all referring me to an actual therapist to begin therapy. Needless to say although she was very nice she was no help at all & it seems like she’s just there to prescribe medications.
