Julie Becker Makes a Difference in Patients’ Lives 

“Encouraging patients to keep abreast of their health care plan is a crucial part of preventive family medicine today.” Julie Becker’s desire to have a career in health care was influenced by her grandmother, who was a dentist as well as a mentor whom she shadowed while she was in college. “For me, I had positive role models who were in medical professions, and it was during high school that I decided to pursue a career in health care,” says Julie. “When I was in school, a physician assistant was a new medical career option, but I liked the idea that it would offer me the opportunity to examine, diagnose and treat patients under the guidance of a medical doctor.”

As a physician assistant, Julie is passionate about preventive and wellness care. “Prevention is the key to health care today,” she says. “During every visit, after reviewing my patients’ charts, I encourage and remind them to keep on top of immunizations, screenings and annual physicals, including PAPs, mammograms, colonoscopies and other screenings, so that a baseline can be recorded. If an abnormality is indicated, it can be caught and treated early.”

Julie speaks fluent Russian and Hebrew. According to her, “Once in a while, I have an opportunity to speak with patients in their native language. This came in handy for me with one of my patients who was a centenarian and was a little confused about diabetes. Being able to explain her condition in her native language put her at ease.”

As a physician assistant, Julie provides a variety of services to patients, including annual physicals, wellness checkups, diagnoses, medication management, blood pressure screenings, inoculations and vaccinations.  

As the mother of four, Julie’s schedule is jam-packed keeping up with her children and their activities, but they also find time to enjoy Broadway shows and traveling.

Julie Becker was thorough in her examination and she took the time to answer questions and to clarify points. I didn't have the sense of "Hurry up...I have more patients to see". She has a great "bedside manner"!

Very disappointed that the PA didn't even recommend anything to help with my headaches aside from refilling my prescription and telling me I work too hard.
