Dr. Echols is an awesome doctor. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing shoulder repair. I had surgery on March 29, 2017 and was released on September 21, 2017. Very responsive and honest!
Thanks Pamela! We are happy to hear you had a wonderful experience.

I'd never recommend this doctor to anyone! His demeanor is careless & snarky from many different interactions with him pre & post op I've never felt him be concerned for me. Once he did my surgery & got his money I NEVER saw him at a visit, although i'd have post op appointments every few weeks, then each month following my surgery. I'm 9 mos. post op wanting to return to FULL CONTACT sports, he says go play, but refuses to script me a knee brace because "he only will once I've torn my acl twice

After falling and breaking my shoulder Dr.Echols told me I needed to have a plate put in my arm to hold it in place. He even showed me a x-ray showing the ball teetering on the edge of the socket.Could he have been looking at someone else's x-ray's? I decided on a second opinion and found I did not need surgery. After 6 mos. I have 95% range of motion and NO PAIN. Why would any Dr. want to put a 74 year old woman through unnecessary surgery? Could it be for the money? BEWARE!!!
Lois, we apologize for any inconvenience or miscommunication regarding your care. Dr. Echol's would only recommend a treatment plan that he believed would have the best outcome for his patients. We are pleased to hear that you did not have to have surgery and that you have a great range in motion!

Our experience with Doctor Echols was a disappointment. It was not possible to see our original surgeon due to him changing practices. Dr. Echols was not willing to help or accept us as a new patient. He was glib, uncaring and cold. This doctor turned us away and said, "no charge" and left the room. This experience is not a reflection on Dr. Echols as a surgeon or his skills. It is however, a reflection on his character.
