Best experience I have ever had with a Doctor that explained the details and wasn\'t standing at the door waiting to get out after a discussion. He eased my fears but let me know what was very important thing to do to keep from getting more sick. I felt so very comfortable knowing I had made the right decision to come to Scott and White. Thank you for helping me.

Dr. Beckendorf has been fabulous. He has me breathing now, where once I wondered if each breath would be my last. I never feel rushed, and he always takes the time to answer my husband\'s questions about my care, as well as my questions. He remembers previous conversations we\'ve had, and asks questions about situations that might impact my health. I can\'t say enough good things about this excellent physician!

Dr. Beckendorff was brilliant in his efforts to eliminate the many infections in my lungs. Still, he very kindly was wiling to transfer me to a local doctor at my request so I wouldn\'t have to drive to Temple any longer. Very much appreciated.
