Philosophy of Medicine

I have always wanted to be in the medical field, and after my wife gave birth to our first child, have been dedicated to providing excellent women's health care. I strive to emulate the wonderful care we received during such an important time in our lives. I find it pivotal to explain options and develop appropriate individual treatment plans with my patients based on their needs and desires.

    I feel very fortunate and thankful for Dr. Bekkedahl as my Dr. He has been very straight forward and helpful in resolving my issues. Also, very helpful in referring me to the receive the surgical treatment I needed at Mayo Clinic. Very graciously did my post -op, so as to save traveling a very long way and referred me to Altru to receive my radiation treatments. He willingly does my rechecks as well. I am so thankful to him for all his medical care.
