Erica Bechtel, MD


Dr. Bechtel chose Neuro-Rehab because she loved the idea of helping patients through a challenging and unexpected time, guiding them through to the other side by focusing on the patients goals and quality of life, and then building long lasting relationships with them. 

In her free time, she enjoys skiing, mountain biking, hiking, sunshine, and introducing their toddler to the great outdoors.
