August 07, 2014

I would recommend Dr. Beck to anyone who needs care.

July 12, 2014

Dr. Beck emailed me the day following my appointment regarding some new research she had just seen that morning that was pertinent to the conversation we had had at my appointment. I really appreciated that.

July 10, 2014

Dr. Beck is an amazing Dr and a great person. I feel she has helped keep me alive longer that has been expected. She is great.

July 07, 2014

Dr. Beck and her staff were extremely kind and compasionate. They were very good at listening to my issues and helping me resolve my concerns. After receiving a "second opinion" about treatment last year, I chose to return to Dr. Beck for my ongoing care. She was much more proactive, knowledgeable, involved and concerned than the local oncologist I used for the last year. The five hour drive to Salt Lake is worth the care that Dr. Beck provides.

July 05, 2014

I did want to mention that the Medical Student that talked with me before Dr. Beck, I don't remember his name. But when I mentioned some concerns, he seemed to brush them off and was condescending as he explained some things. I know I am not a Dr., but no one likes to be made to feel stupid, and that was how he made me feel. He maybe just needs a little work on his bedside manner and how he talks to people. No problems at all with Dr. Beck or nursing staff, we love coming there, it is a peaceful place to come and get cancer treatment and except for the experience with the med student this time, we have never had a complaint. thank you for listening.

July 04, 2014

I loved the attention that I received

June 30, 2014

Great experience! It would be even better if you could get rid of these Hot Flashes :)

June 19, 2014

Dr Beck is awesome.

June 15, 2014

Dr. Beck is the best!

June 14, 2014

DR Anna Beck is the greatest!!

June 06, 2014

I have seen Dr. Beck before she came to the Huntsman. I am so glad to be under her care again. She saved my life after my bone marrow transplant years ago.

May 18, 2014

Due to my current diagnosis, it isn't possible to give a full explanation of all the variables and unknowns; however, Dr. Beck has spent a considerable amount of time helping me understand the range of potential outcomes. I am very confident in her as my oncologist. I especially appreciated how she has empowered me to be a part of the decision making process, and the amount of time she always spends with me. It seems it would be rare to find an individual with such advanced professional skills, empathy and understanding, but I am blown away at each visit because that is what I experience from Dr. Beck, Vickie, and the entire staff at Huntsman. Dr. Beck and Vicky serve as role models that will help many women feel comforted as they offer them greater education and professional advice. This is so important as women with cancer, who are walking the tight rope between life and death.

May 17, 2014

I have complete confidence in the care provider and I do recommend her every time I have a chance.

May 16, 2014

DR Beck was so good at Explaining things that she left on questions!

May 16, 2014

May 06, 2014

We were blown away with the amount of time Dr. Beck took with us. Her computer graphic program was a big help in understanding the outcomes of various treatment plans. She spent a lot of time just listening to my mother tell her experience and addressed each and every concern. She is amazing!

April 28, 2014

Dr. Beck has been wonderful as an oncologist and support through this difficult journey.

April 28, 2014

Dr Anna Beck is a knowlegable, and caring physician. She answered all my questions and gave me probably more information than I really wanted! She was willing to spend time with me to make sure I understand what's happening to me. I think I'm in good hands!

April 26, 2014

Dr. Beck addressed my emotional concerns initially which made it easier to discuss the medical situation.

April 20, 2014

As I commented in the previous question, I was able to relate to Dr. Beck. She put the situation in prospective manner in such a way, that I fully understand my cancer and how to deal with it.

April 14, 2014

Dr. Beck is a wonderful provider. She is adept at balancing clinical expertise with much empathy and grace. I look forward to a long term relationship with her. I would absolutely recommend her to all.

April 12, 2014

Dr. Beck is very supportive through all stages of the process of cancer.

April 09, 2014

At this point, I don't really have too much knowledge to provide concerning my future treatment until we get test results back.

I am putting my life in Dr. Beck's hands. I have great faith in her and believe in the plan we have made for my care.

I have 100% confidence in Dr. Beck. She makes me feels like we make team decisions and she is not there to just tell me what I have to do.

February 07, 2014

Dr. Beck is the best. I have recommended her to several people.

October 15, 2013

Dr. Beck is an excellent oncologist. She works very well with patients, is a good listener, and is helpful at addressing all patient concerns and needs. She never rushes, discusses and explains treatment options and always tries to help resolve unwanted side effects of treatment. She also expresses a genuine compassion and caring for her patients. I would recommend her to anyone.

July 23, 2013

I found Dr. Beck to very personable and compassionate. I felt she listened to my concerns and went above and beyond to address my concerns. The nurse was equally compassionate and helpful.

July 17, 2013

I was so impressed that Dr. Beck knew more about my situation than I did. She had obviously studied my records and remembered important facts. I was very flattered. I felt a good connection. The thought did cross my mind that they (the dr and nurse) probably needed to get on to other patients - but they didn't rush me and made me feel like I was their main concern.

July 15, 2013

very helpful to my needs

July 15, 2013

Dr. Anna Beck is the very best in her field, in my opinion. She is caring, knowledgeable and most of all listens to what I feel and think and responds with acceptance of my thoughts and beliefs regarding my desire to not go the conventional way of treatment in regard to my breast cancer. She is supportive of my decisions.

July 02, 2013

From the start I have told people if they are sick Huntsman is the only place to go.

April 01, 2013

We are still a bit confused about my sessions i thought from start to finsh it would be 6 on my last session i found out by the chemo nurse i only had 1 more session total of 4.

March 04, 2013

Everyone was very helpful, particularly Genevieve osborne, RN, Sarah in scheduling, Dr. Anna Beck even all the guys in valet parking!

February 25, 2013

I just wish that my care provider was listed as a PPO with my insurance. The insurance says that other providers at Huntsman are on my PPO, but I am very pleased with Dr. Beck and want to remain with her!

Dr. Beck was very helpful and she helped all of us very much. She asked questions about how I was feeling and other questions. I would recommend her.

November 26, 2012

I was very satisfied with the entire visit.

November 22, 2012

First experience was with Dr. Beck whom I respect and love as a provider. Second was with accupuncture which went well. I am excited about the ideal of the services offered for survivors since we still have so much to deal with still. It so goes beyond treatment; it is post treatment services that hopefully will address my on going needs.

November 20, 2012

Dr.Beck is one of the finest oncologists we have ever seen, including all the doctors we saw in Washington, DC in 2008/2009.

October 23, 2012

I was a little concerned about the side effects of medication because I do not remember talking about them but it was a very long visit so we could have and I do not remember. The follow-up care was to go to the Wellness center and they were going to call me be it has been a week and I haven't heard from them so I did call them and leave a message. I am not sure exactly what they need to know about my care. I thought the nurse had to talk to them first but once again maybe I misunderstood. Very possible with my state of mind...

October 22, 2012

I truly had a great experience in this Clinic.... Dr. Beck was very attentive and gave me great advice on things I needed to do to regain my strength and rebuild my life. Love her...

October 20, 2012

This was my first visit to Dr. Beck and I found her very likable and informative and concerned about my condition. I really enjoyed my office visit with her.

October 15, 2012

Dr. Beck is the best. I would follow her to any medical facility, no matter what.
