Dr. Marcia Beshara, MD
As a native of South Dakota I am honored and delighted to be serving my community in the beautiful Black Hills. Prior to realizing my passion for medicine, I was a horticulturist and high school biology teacher in Minnesota. To this day, I love spending time observing nature's progression through its cycles. I attended medical school at the University of Minnesota then completed residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. After fifteen years of combined OB/GYN service in Rapid City, I am now excited to focus specifically on women's gynecologic needs from puberty to menopause. A recent addition to my practice is the MonaLisa Touch laser which restores vaginal health to women experiencing pain with intercourse. It is a novel nonhormonal treatment for women suffering with painful intercourse and cannot or chose not to use hormones, including breast cancer survivors. The results are impressive.

Care Philosophy

As physicians, we are all influenced by the institution at which we trained. Having trained at Mayo Clinic, I was taught the patient is the most integral member of the team. Therefore, my goal for my patients is to achieve the highest level of satisfaction out of each day; not only from the standpoint of physical health but also from an intellectual and emotional perspective. To accomplish this I engage my years of experience with the desires of the patient to determine the best individualized treatment option for each one.

Dr. Beshara focuses specifically on women's gynecologic needs from puberty to menopause. And has recently addition of the MonaLisa Touch laser.

Dr. Beshera is one of the friendliest doctors I have ever seen. She greeted me with a smile and a hand-shake. She was so gentle and kind. She answered all my questions before I could even ask them. What a great doctor, and I am so confident in her.
Caryl, we are so pleased you enjoyed your visit to Marcia Beshara! We always strive to provide top quality service to every guest, and are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your experience here at Rapid City Medical Center!

Dr.Beshara is kind and brilliant. I was a first time mother and I was very very afraid of delivery. When the time came it was painless, joyful, and dignified. I had a miscarriage before my son was born. When I told the receptionist that, they scheduled me for an eight week apppointment rather than making me wait 12 weeks. It was for my comfort. Dr. Marcia is incredibly kind and mindful of pain.

I thought her information was out of date and that she was most likely following insurance guidelines.
