I think he's doing okay understanding my condition. I think more blood work should have been done. He gave me a brief history as my condition but so far treatment hasn't helped & he's unsure as what will help long term. I'm hopeful my next visit will be more helpful. This one was not.

Also comforting when I was very anxious about biopsy/testing/general health. Did a great job of walking me through the biopsy and actually numbed me himself as opposed to the nurse because he knew I was nervous. I appreciated that A LOT.

I have seen Dr. Bechtel for years before he left OUS. I was thrilled to see he was back. He is very thorough and always answers all of my questions. He is also very personable and respects what treatment I decide on. The physician I saw while he was gone did not know my hx and tried to make me do treatments that I was not interested in.
