Review of Dr. Eichinger

- in SC |

Dr. Eichinger, his staff and the total MUSC community have spoiled both me and my son. Never have we met such wonderful, caring, efficient people. The MUSC Medical has set the standards high. Wish all medical communities could attain such professional yet caring standards. Laura Smith

Review of Dr. Eichinger

- in SC |

This doctor has my praise! I started seeing him a year ago for a bad shoulder surgery. He tried to help me in every way and never pushed me into surgery. I finally had had all the pain I could handle. I put my trust and faith in him. I am less than 3 weeks post surgery and am recovering perfectly. All I can say is thank you for putting me on the road to a total recovery. I had a 4 hour commute to find him well worth it!

Review of Dr. Eichinger

Dr. Eichinger is the best and brightest young talent at MUSC. If you have upper extremity issues I would only see him. When other Orthopaedic surgeons come to him to be treated, you know he is competent. His training pedigree is nothing short of amazing, from his USA Military Academy undergraduate degree to his fellowship at Harvard in upper extremity surgery.

Review of Dr. Eichinger

- in Bluffton, SC |

After great confusion at another institution I was referred to MUSC in general, then subsequently referred to Dr. Eichinger. I feel very fortunate to have been placed in his hands. The 2 hour drive to Charleston was certainly well worth the trip. The pain level do to the Ulnar nerve at my right elbow being crushed has been greatly reduced. Dr. Eichinger and his team not only met my expectations, they exceeded them.
