His bedside manner is no manners at all!
Becker centers on the life of Dr. John Becker a cantankerous yet dedicated and talented physician who in spite of his constant rants has a decent heart underneath the sarcasm. Becker will continue to unleash his views at the local diner even in Reggie s continuing absense. Jake (Alex Desert) the blind proprietor of the local newsstand continues to turn a deaf ear to John. Bob Becker s brash obnoxious apartment super (Saverio Guerra) persists in annoying virtually everyone. At the office Becker's head nurse Margaret (Hattie Winston) continues to make order out of chaos keeping John and his space-cadet nurses-aid Linda (Shawnee Smith) in line. New to the neighborhood is Chris Konnors (Nancy Travis) Becker's new neighbor with whom he must contend on a daily basis. Although her positive attitude is a major annoyance to Becker he slowly begins to have feelings for her. John Becker is a cynical Harvard Medical School graduate who is somewhat of a loner and has trouble letting people get close to him. He looks at the world around him and feels society has gone mad - full of inconsistencies and just plain backward thinking. Although he is a diagnostician by trade Becker feels he can dispense diagnoses even when no one asks. He has no qualms about saying what comes to mind never sugarcoats his opinions and often seems to offend somebody nearby. However his friends and colleagues recognize the heart beneath the hate and so accept his gruff demeanor for what it is.
