The doctor was delayed at the hospital and called me himself while I was en route to my appointment. He let me know he was running about 30 minutes late. I was therefore able to have labs drawn and an x-ray taken prior to the appointment. The call from the doctor himself and the arrangement he made for an x-ray before seeing him were more impressive than if he were on time for the appointment.

Dr. Bechtel is one of the most delightful caring young Doctor I have ever met. I worked 20 plus years in healthcare and his genuine concern for his patient is phenomenal. From the first appointment I had with him to my hip replacement I felt complete ease. He explained everything and was there if I needed an immediate answer. In fact I feel he is so kind, genuine and knowledgeable I had a total knee replacement with him just last year and again he was exceptional. I honestly wish there were more Doctors like Dr. Bechtel

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
