Dr. Beckerman is my cardiologist and in the past 3 months I have been seen by 3 others in his department. Dr. Beckerman is very aware of the treatment provided by the others doctors and the medication changes I have had. I am VERY happy with his knowledge and care for my heart issues.

The only medical explanation that I got regarding the results of heart tests that I had gotten a year ago was that they were unremarkable. The doctor also mentioned that one of my blood pressure medications was ineffective other than to lower my heart rate. He gave no other explanations or information and preferred to focus on my weight and lifestyle which I realize does need improvement. My previous primary care doctor gave me entirely different information regarding my heart test results. I was too stunned to even bring that up as the first thing he said to me when he entered the room was "why are you (even) here". [...] This was by far one of the worst medical appointments I have ever had and if you look at my history you would know that I have had a lot of them. I felt totally disrespected. I would not even feel comfortable getting any additional information from Dr Beckerman and would prefer another Cardiologist to supply that.
