    Jonathan Bechard, MD, Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Dr. Bechard is seeing patients at the Eisenhower Alan Brimble and Richard Lyle Jones Health Centerin Palm Springs. After receiving his undergraduate degree at Loma Linda University, Dr. Bechard went on to earn his medical degree at Loma Linda University School of Medicine. He then completed a residency program in internal medicine at Michigan State University.

    For nearly twenty years before joining Eisenhower Health, Dr. Bechard was an internist in Kalispell, Montana at the foothills of Glacier National Park. “I have enjoyed returning to warm southern California,” states Dr. Bechard, who was raised in Hemet. “As a primary care physician, I enjoy the longitudinal relationships that develop with patients over time.”

    Patient interaction is important to Dr. Bechard. He enjoys connecting with his patients, learning about their life history and how this information can be incorporated into developing a health care plan unique for each patient. “My role as the medical director for the Internal Medicine Residency Clinic allows me to share my experience in medical practice as well as promote the use of clinical best practices for the next generation of physicians serving the Coachella Valley.” Dr. Bechard incorporates his expertise in LGBTQ health care into the educational curriculum of the residency program with an emphasis on creating a culturally competent healthcare delivery environment for all patients so they may have the opportunity to explore and address all important health care topics.
