“Dr. Beckerly truly exemplifies how to balance providing excellent patient care while teaching medical students. Students working with Dr. Beckerly found her to be inspiring for a number of reasons. Regardless of how busy the pain clinic may be, she always brought the same positive energy to every patient encounter and always makes every attempt to involve the medical student as much as possible. She is an incredible role model from whom we can all learn how to effectively communicate with the most challenging and diverse patient populations. She takes pride in her patient’s satisfaction and care, and this is evident in their trust and faith in her.
