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.

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 supportive of my decisions.

December 10, 2012

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.
