Dr. Beck was exceptional. He pulled no punches, which is what we wanted. Personalized my husbands care, and explanations, not only to my spouses level of understanding but to me and my experience. Proactive and optimistic, even with stage IV lung CA. During our 7 month with him, it felt like a friend was taking care of us. Calls where returned immediately. THANK YOU Dr. I couldn't have done this with out you.......

Dr. Beck is simply an outstanding doctor. He is kind, caring, compassionate. He always takes his time to make me feel welcome in his clinic. He make sure I am well educated about my disease. At the end of each visit he always asks me what I might need and if there is anyway that he can help me. One time I was very sick and he called me at home to check on me.

Dr. Beck has been my physician for over 8 years. He's been professional from day one. He has been kind to my family members and I couldn't ask for a more caring,competent doctor. He and his entire staff have been courteous and prompt in all appointents.

This is an awesome doctor, very knowledgable, compassionate and thorough. He "knows his stuff" and if he doesn't, like when your situation ventures in to another speciality, he will direct you to another respectable doctor, I trust him with my loved ones and my own health.

He always asks how I feel and about family members that I have said were sick.He takes as long as needed to examine me, the more questions I ask the longer my time with him is if I say I'm feeling good then its short. I love his staff in Talladega they seem to be very caring and concerned.One thing I wish is he would put me on a AI after the 5 year tamoxifen. I guess I'll have to wait and see

Dr Beck is a wonderful doctor! I was seen by him within a week of referral. He was easy to talk to and explained all of my treatment options in terms I could understand. I was started on treatment within 3 days of the initial visit! I would recommend him to any one looking for an Oncologist!!

Would not recommend this Doctor. He is extremely arrogant and has no idea how to talk to patients who are battling cancer. Does not keep up with the latest treatment plans and when asked if he works with specialists, his response was "I don't work for other Doctors!"
