Erica Bechtel, MD


Dr. Bechtel chose neuro-rehab because she loved the idea of helping patients through a challenging and unexpected time. She enjoys guiding them through to the other side by focusing on their goals and quality of life, then building long-lasting relationships with them. In her free time, she enjoys skiing, mountain biking, hiking, sunshine and introducing her toddler to the great outdoors.
