Have had 2 hip revisions with Doctor Eichten. He is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. Kind, caring, explains everything. He has my complete trust. His physician assistant Blake is in the office and also in the operating room. Office runs efficiently.

Never been in a hospital. Never had surgery. I was very comfortable with my trust in dr, Eichten. I had the hip replaced and am pain free, then I had a broken wrist . This time a plate but great healing and very little pain. Things come in threes again I was comfortable with my trust in dr. Eichten and again no pain with full use of my hand and wrist. He is taking care of a knee and shoulder now and he keeps me comfortable and walking . I will be staying with him forever . Have recommended h

Dr Eichten is the BEST. Our daughter Tami told me he should do both of my hip surgeries as she worked in the operating room with him and knew how very competent and talented he was . So glad I listened as my life improved so much because of his professionalism. His Naples office is so well organized. My husband has had fluid on his knees that Dr Eiechten repaired. He is the wonderful.

This was my second hip replacement, my first was on the left side over 14 yrs ago in Virginia, I was referred to Dr. Eichten from my sister-in-law who had her first one done almost 3 years ago by Dr. Eichetn. She will be using him again for her other hip replacement sometime this year. I was in and out of the hospital after one day, and after one year I have regained all my mobility with little stiffness only after sitting for a while. After care was excellent I selected in home rehab.

Dr. Eichten was very professional, knowledgable and personable. He took the appropriate amount of time to provide details of the break and make sure all questions were answered. He was very patient and kind. (Responding on behalf of my 92 year-young Mom who broke her arm/wrist.)

Excellent doctor--excellent experience. I've already referred three people! I received a referral from two tennis friends and they weren't wrong. I got in immediately and was in and out within a half hour. Amazing for a specialist. Office personnel were awesome.

I just called the office for the first time looking for an appt because I have infection on my thumb, and after 2 IVs at Urgent Care they said see specialist. I was told they couldn't do anything in the office, go to ER. First I was looking for dr opinion because my hand is red and spreading, afraid of inflection. If I go to ER it won't be a hand specialist looking at my hand. And lastly their Sheila, receptionist added, and besides it's FRIDAY, omg. So I don't know where to go. Horrible
