Life Changing

After suffering from repeated sinus infections, nasal blockage, and sinus inflammation for all of my life, I finally saw Dr. Sam Becker after having seen numerous other ear, nose, and throat specialists. Not only is Dr. Becker ahead of the game, with the newest techniques, technology , and mechanisms for his field, but he is candid, honest, and forthcoming. He explained why I needed the sinus surgery (Polyp, deviated septum, complete sinus blockage) yet also did not push me into getting it, for it was my decision. After fear and hesitation, I saw Dr. Becker a few more times when I was suffering from more sinus infections. A few years later, I finally bit the bullet, and the surgery has been life-changing. Even the nurses at the hospital informed me of what a superb surgeon Dr. Becker is and to relax because I was in good hands. Dr. Becker even gives you his personal cell number if you need anything post surgery. There is no packing and the aftermath is not nearly as bad as I had anticipated. Now 41/2 months later, I can actually breath, I sleep better, and I haven't had a sinus infection. I have decreased my nasal medication and don't have to hang my head over steam every night and refill the vaporizer all winter, feeling crumby. I am wholeheartedly impressed, happy, and feeling nasal complicated free for once in my life. I only regret not having it done years ago. Thank you Dr. Becker to a job phenomenally done. If you are going to go to anyone, it is Dr. Becker, you want to see. He is one of the top in his field.

Thanks Dr. Becker!

Had some surgery for a deviated septum with Dr. Becker. Did a great job! Did not overpromise about the results but should have because I'm 100% better than I was before. After surgery noticed I was still swelling a bit and prescribed a spray that has really helped a great deal. Also working with his allergist on staff and she's been great too. Nice guy, very easy to talk to. And I appreciate the early morning appointments so I don't have to take time off from work. I highly recommend his practice!

Septoplasty

I came to see Dr. Samuel Becker for a “deviated septum,” which was making it difficult for me to breathe only though my nose. He was the third ENT doctor that I saw in the central NJ area. The first one recommended surgery before I even finished explaining what my problem was, which made me very uncomfortable. Dr. Becker, on the other hand, did not mention surgery during my first visit; he first had me try a nasal spray for a few months. Only when that failed did he recommend surgery, explaining in detail what that would entail. The surgery (“septoplasty”) is rather simple: you’re in the hospital for around 3-5 hours, it’s under general anesthesia (I didn’t even realize when they injected me, and I woke up an hour later as if I had just woken up from a very relaxing nap), and it’s included in most insurance policies (as long as it’s not combined with any cosmetic procedure). Your nose is kind of stuffy for 4-5 days (you should definitely take off 1 week from work), and fully healed in 2 weeks. All in all, I was very satisfied with the surgery and highly recommend Dr. Becker for several reasons. First, he is a genuinely nice person who takes a personal interest in his patients. It’s important to develop a sense of trust and respect with the person who will be cutting you open while you’re out cold. Second, he has a very good reputation in the surgical department at Princeton Medical Center. While I was laying on the bed waiting to be taken into the operation room, several unrelated nurses came up to me, asked me who my doctor was, and told me that they had consistently heard good things about him. We were behind schedule by about an hour and a half, and they all said that this was “normal” for Dr. Becker, because he spends extra time with each patient to make sure that everything is perfect. Third, the surgery really did turn out great, and I can finally breathe normally through my nose! Be aware that you will almost always be seen 30 minutes later than your appointment time, and you will sign multiple disclaimer forms each time you enter the office, but in return you will never feel that Dr. Becker is rushing you to finish explaining your problems. Anyone who has been to any doctor’s office in the past few years can certainly appreciate this! I also found the office staff to be knowledgeable and polite, and they made a special effort to learn how to pronounce my name, which was nice of them. In short, be prepared for longer wait times than usual, but also for much higher-quality service than any other ENT doctor in the region.
