    Well, something that didn’t happen in Memphis. I’m sure he will receive a stricter penalty than he would if he was a Memphis doctor.

    I hate this for Dr Becton. He was always very nice and professional at my visits and both c sections. I did not ever get a weird vibe from him at all. I feel that after loosing his wife of many years has something to do with his horrible actions. God be with his daughter as I feel she is so shamed.

    Dr becton was a great doctor and was very professional all the years I seen him in northwest arkansas. I am so sad about hearing this and wish it wasn’t true. God bless him and his family. He is good doctor and I always thought he was a good man. My heart breaks.
