09 Jun Anthony Becher, PA-C, Joins Orthopedic Team at Olympic Medical Physicians
Anthony Becher, PA-C, joins a team of orthopedic providers and surgeons at the OMP Orthopaedic Clinic in Port Angeles and Sequim.
Olympic Medical Center welcomes Anthony Becher, certified physician assistant, to the orthopedic team.
Becher joins Olympic Medical Physicians after completing a Master of Science degree in physician assistant studies, and he will see patients at the OMP Orthopaedic Clinics in Port Angeles and Sequim.
“I enjoy making a connection with people and being able to lead them to a healthier life,” said Becher. “The satisfaction of helping people achieve less pain and be able to move more freely is why I chose orthopedics.”
Originally from California, Becher received his undergraduate degree from Southern Illinois University before earning a Master of Physician Assistant Studies from Pacific University in Hillsboro, Oregon. He moved to the Olympic Peninsula not only to enjoy the scenery and outdoor activities with his family, but because he has fond memories of visiting his grandparents on the Peninsula when he was young. “My grandparents had nothing but good things to say about Olympic Medical Center and the staff that have taken care of them over the years. Hearing this from a patient perspective made me sure it would be a good place to work,” he says.
As a provider, Becher hopes to connect with his patients and work together to find the best course of action to get them feeling better. “I spent time in a variety of different settings and with each experience and interaction I have learned to connect with people on their level,” said Becher. “I think connecting allows for trust, which is crucial in caring for people.”
Becher will provide physician support to orthopedic providers Dr. Dirk Gouge, Dr. Loren Larson and Dr. Thomas Herschmiller at OMP, as well as to the rest of the orthopedic team. He treats fractures, dislocations, joint problems and orthopedic emergencies.
