Dr. Echo repaired my daughter's face laceration and did a plastics procedure on my brother. His manual skills are among the best of surgeons I have witnessed personally, as a surgeon myself. I entrust the care of my family members and patients to Dr. Echo without hesitation.

This doctor and his staff are a joke. Absolutely no care for your life and well-being. After going in for an MRI, Echo didn't even view the image but relied on the report. You would expect a surgeon to know how to read and comprehend an MRI but I guess this guy doesn't. Would you feel comfortable in allowing him to perform open surgery on you? His assistant Mirian has absolutely zero care for patients. Does not call back and is always "on the other line." Please take value into your health and do not waste your time.

I'm BRCA1 positive. I had ovarian cancer in 2015-16 with 6 rounds of chemo. November 2016 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Dr Echo did my breast reconstruction after my double mastectomy. He made sure I understood every step that was to take place pre-OR, during surgery and post-op. Dr. Echo answered all my question, understood my fears and cared about my feelings. I would highly recommend Dr. Echo!!

He did not want to hear my opinions about what I wanted, or what I didn't want, from my results. Simply because I had gathered photos of what I liked (which he refused to look at), he basically suggested that I see another surgeon. Very passive aggressive and cold. His PA was very kind, warm, and attentive though.

Dr. Echo is a great doctor. I was very emotional through the process of my treatment as I was very scared. He and his staff were very kind to me and took time to explain things to me in a simple language that I could understand. I would highly recommend him. I am very happy with my results.

Dr Echo performed hernia repair, abdominal and breast surgery on me. The treatment I received was outstanding. I'm very happy with how I was dealt with before, during and after surgery. The results are amazing. Dr Echo is highly skilled and professional. I would recommend him to everyone!!
