Unfortunately, being that Dr. Bechtol has retired, myself and many others will NOT continue with Dr. Clark due to the staff. ANDY in particular. She is known to many patients as the wicked witch of the west. She is a very rude, hateful, and uncaring person. She has been tolerated ONLY because of the love and respect for Dr. Bechtol. So, I would NOT recommend this office. She is an embarrassment.

I've been a patient of his for 9 years and wouldn't think of using another physician. I wish that I knew him earlier in my life as a patient. He is a excellent doctor
