      Dr. Bechler is one of the best doctors I have ever known. I had shoulder surgery over 18 years ago and I've haven't had a problem since. In addition, I've been to Dr. Bechler for other orthopedic issues including lower back and knee issues. Always felt that he gave me 100 percent of his attention and time. He is very supportive and reassuring with an absolutely perfect bedside manner. I strongly recommend this doctor. Thanks Dr. Bechler!!

      Dr. Bechler is a highly experienced Dr. who successfully repaired both shoulders for rotator cuff tears. He also performed an arthritic cleansing of my shoulder joint which removed all pain. His personal style and interaction with me were excellent - always sharing the options with me and taking the more conservative approach to pain relief before moving to other options. His patience, quiet confidence and logic in handling his expertise is an example of how all Dr.'s should be.
