SHC Patient, Sep 2014

Wish she was quicker to get into. She is the best gastroenterologist I've had in four states. Super responsive on MyHealth - Greatly appreciated.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

Dr. Fernandez-Becker was very thorough and impressed me with the amount of time she was prepared to spend with me.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

Just think digestive health is a tough area and really needs holistic type model and savvy testing.

SHC Patient, Jun 2014

SHC Patient, May 2014

She was really very understanding, professional and reachable. She was by far the best doctor I have interacted in Stanford Hospital & Clinics. I have had couple bad experiences in ER and w/some other doctors. She is by far above Stanford's standards.

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

Dr. & her assistant were very kind and caring. Dr. Fernandez-Becker is one of my best doctors at Stanford!

SHC Patient, Feb 2014

My overall experience with Dr. Fernandez - Becker has been wonderful. She is an EXCELLENT provider!!!
