I was satisfied with DR. Echols as my PCP. I was assigned to her by Blue Cross but no longer go to her because I received a letter from Blue Cross stating that her practice has informed them that they will no longer accept Blue Cross insurance. I was a little dismayed that the practice didn't notify their Blue Cross patients first. While I was a patient there, I really liked the use of technology for notifications and information. Her staff was satisfactory.

Dr Echols is fabulous i have been going to her for over a year now and find her to be professional, kind, respectful, courteous and warm. I really like the new location on Hillandale although the office spaces are small the staff are friendly and the place is clean.

From the time that I arrived until when I left, I felt that all of the staff were extra nice and accommodating! Brandon came in to take vitals and we talked like we were friends and Dr. Echols really listened to everything that I talked about(long list). The phlebotomist got my blood in one stick in my arm, even though I normally hear the excuse of deep, rolling and tiny veins, when they are pricking 2-3 times in my hand! This has been my best experience at a doctor's office in a long time!
