I have been to KY Dermatology 4 times. Tomorrow will make my 5th visit for the same problem. It has yet to be properly cared for and each time, I am rushed out with the same prescription that DOES NOT WORK! Therefore, my ratings for Dr. Becknell are low right now until my visit tomorrow. Understanding that I have as much input in my care as the doctor, there will be some changes made with this FINAL visit. I will report more later
Found my cancer on my face the first visit I was there. I had been to numerous dermatologists in the past that had never caught it. The first biopsy came back as some sort of calcium deposit and he didn't believe it. He did another biopsy and the then found the cancer underneath. Amazing doctor who is very thorough. Very kind! I don't mind waiting to see him since he takes such care and is so thorough.
Had a most unpleasant experience. Have been suffering from a painful skin rash for 5 yrs. Had seen 2 other dermatologists who were not able to help. Allergist was the most helpful to clam down blistrers that start the rash and the pain, but needed authorization from a dermatologist for some tests so tried again. Dr. Becknell ignored medical history entirely, seemed to blame me for causing the rash by scratchin when in extreme pain. Came out of visit crying. Very damaging to be seeking help for 5 years and be blamed for it by a doctor!! Mental anguish on top of the extreme pain of the skin condition. The whole reason for this visit was to get authorization for some blood tests. He said he would do it just to shut me up, when i went to my appointment a week later at Quest diagnostics the orders for the tests had never been sent.
Everyone in our family has seen Dr. Becknell. Our teenage boys think he is funny and easy to talk to. My wife was very nervous about her visit but he was very professional and made my wife comfortable. I have seen him for over ten years. He became my specialist after I was diagnosed with stage four metastic melanoma. He is exacting in his work, informative, and concerned. He has gone the extra mile to make sure when a melanoma was found on my face that the scar was not noticible. I see him every six months. We have had varying waits for appt. some for less than five min and others for hour. However, I have know that we have taken extra time for visits that put his schedule long. So, if I have to wait, I know that someone ahead of me needed that time. I appreciate his attention. His humor is not the normal for a dr. but neither is his personal attention to his patients. We would not consider changing dr.'s. He is Outstanding!
