Testimonial

I was going to give 2 stars, but I don't want a response from the PR person. The doctor is okay, but the way the office is actually run needs improvement. With so many staff members at the Astoria office, you would think they'd be knowledgeable about how to put in claims without troubling you. I was told to call my insurance about a claim that did not go through, however, if I am to call my insurance, the customer service agent will just call the office asking them to provide all the info for that claim to be processed. So, there was no need to tell me anything and burden me with that. It turns out the required referral was not submitted and I was later told by the staff that it was re-submitted. This is the correct procedure. They should know which referrals are electronic and which ones are not. I am merely making suggestions to the staff about being more cognizant about how the office is run, which overall is good, but there is room for making it better.

Had nasal endoscopy. It didn't hurt at all. Dr. Beckhardt was very skillful. He took time to listen to my symptoms and explained to me what's most likely happening very clear. The lady at front desk was nice and friendly, the medial assistant was also professional. The office is clean and spacious. I would recommend 100%!!

I had a great experience. The wait time was over an hour but the doctor explained that he had to remove a foreign object from someones throat prior to seeing me! Im glad he took his time with that patient :) I definitely reccommend Dr. Beckhardt.

I want to recommend Dr. Beckhardt because when you eventually get to see him he is a very kind and knowledgeable doctor, but the wait times to see him are absurd and he referres me for a cat scan without a prescription. So I have wasted 4 1/2 hours and counting waiting to be seen by him or people he has reffered me to. No offense, but there have to be other doctors who do ENT who can get it together and see me closer to my actual appointment times.

Dr. Beckhardt is one of the most dedicated doctors I have met. He and staff are very kind and efficient; they listened and spoke with me in a way that I could understand and feel safe. After my inicial medical examination, I called the doctor's office a few times with questions; Dr. Beckhardt quickly called me back each time to answer my questions and ease my concerns. I am very grateful for such an excellent service.

Very nice and knowledgeable man. Appreciated him listening to me and giving me the information that two other doctors did not.

Dr. Beckhardt is probably the best doctor that has ever treated me. He cares & he takes his time. I had a very complicated case and he took it rather than turn me away. The surgery he gave me was a life changing experience & I will be forever grateful.
