Creating a better world and fostering meaningful connections with others through patient-centered, comprehensive, and up-to-date medicine is Dr. Bechis’ priority.
She believes in the healing nature of a non-judgemental, empathic, kind-hearted conversation and continually works to be a better physician for her patients by reading, attending seminars, and reflecting on past visits.
“When I see a patient, I strive to make each encounter a meaningful experience by actively listening and partnering with my patient to accomplish their own individual healthcare goals. I strive for patients to leave their appointments feeling heard and perhaps better than when they came in.”
Dr. Bechis works both her mind and body to stay well. She reads often and commutes to work by bike whenever possible. She enjoys playing disc golf with her partner, who is a professional disc golf player. She also enjoys skiing.
Dr. Bechis is passionate about providing comprehensive prenatal and OB care, treating chronic medical conditions, such as hypertension and diabetes, and providing nonjudgemental and up-to-date mental health care, and all that it entails.
