Very good doctor, left no questions unanswered and if I needed surgery again id request Dr Bechtel be my dr.
in Elberton, Ga |
Did routine colonoscopy, said had in-growing polyp, suggests 8 inches of intestines removed. 2nd opinion, 2nd Dr, no polyp, do again in 1 yr. 3rd colonoscopy, no polyp. I believe in prayer but he would have removed good intestine at a great expense and recovery to me for no reason except to improve his pocketbook. Do Not Use.

Stay far away! He is arrogant and really caused harm to my daughter. He butchered her abdomen then told her she was lazy and it was all in her head when she told him something was wrong. Turns out she had bleeding in her belly that he caused Her hemoglobin to drop from 13 to 6 causing her to need a blood transfusion. He never apologized.
