Patient Reviews

Dr. Becker literally stopped me from crying. I had a blocked tear duct and narrowed my choices down to Dr. Becker and Dr. Christopher Zoumalan. Dr. Becker’s schedule wasn’t available sooner so I saw Dr. Zoumalan first. I was still counting on Dr. Becker to perform the less invasive balloon dacryoplasty as HE INVENTED the procedure but saw Dr. Zoumalan anyway to see who made me more comfortable. When I saw Dr. Zoumalan he actually referred me to Dr. Becker as apparently everyone in LA knows he’s the go-to-guy for blocked tear ducts. It’s been 9 months and I tear free without having a DCR done.

I can’t thank Dr. Becker enough as it’s pretty embarrassing as a man to be wiping tears from your eyes every 5-10 minutes. If you have a blocked tear duct see Dr. Becker. You won’t regret it!

I had a very serious injury to the left side of my face an I never thought I would ever look the same again. Dr. Becker fixed everything almost like nothing happen. He is very good at what he does.

Very kind an truly cares about his patients. He definitely has a gift from God. An I’m so grateful I was referred to him an so very thankful for all that he is an all that he did for me.

Dr. Becker exceeds above and beyond! A 5-star doctor I would recommend to family and friends because he truly is a specialist in ophthalmology and in cosmetic surgery. I learned that he teaches one day out of the week to residents at UCLA, which explains why he is so patient and didn’t mind explaining the procedure with me. I was quite nervous but he really calmed my nerves about Juvederm, because I was afraid to not look natural after the injections.

I have to say I LOVE MY RESULTS! my parentheses lines along the sides of my nose and mouth where so defined but now I feel like I’m in my early 20’s again ? He has become me to go the doctor to help retain my youth appearance.
