    This Dr. actually listens to you, askes good questions, exames you physically. (actually touches you) After ER visit and impatient time in the last week, with a very rude physician, that never touched me or answered questions. It was refreshing I felt totally safe and cared for with Dr, Eckel and his staff I have been working in medicine, for over 40 years. would send family or friends with confidence to Dr. Eckel.
