Frederic S. Becker, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

There are few relationships like those between patient and doctor. At different times you need to be a coach, a cheerleader, a healer, or a friend. Any important relationship requires time.

Unfortunately, the trends in medicine today make it more difficult to find the proper time. We usually spend our efforts looking at computers and rushing from room to room. Now I am able to stop, listen, and think. This is the basis of personalized care.

The goal is simple: to help you get healthy, stay healthy, be healthy.
