He is a awesome specialist ,especially about heart, that is the most important organ in our human body, anybody who has heart issue ,please take my recommendation to see him.

Dr. Eric Eichhorn lied to me. He told me United Healthcare would not cover a nuclear stress test (the day I was there for it, much to my surprise), and my next option would be a heart cath procedure. I went along with this, only to discover months later that United DID NOT turn down the nuclear, and in fact, faxed this doctor twice to talk with him on the details of the nuclear test (peer-to-peer) so that they COULD approve it. They screwed up and lied to me. Do not use him.

Dr Eichhorn is a true professional! He is kind and caring. He explains your condition in a language you can understand. He puts you at ease and he takes time to talk to you. I have great confidence in him and his staff!

He doesn't care about his patients, all he cares about is money. I will never recommend him to anybody his office staff is just as bad and rude. Don't waste your time see him. He also put me on unnecessary medications.

Dr. Eichhorn is very knowledgeable cardiologist who really cares about his patients. He's been my mother's cardiologist for five years after she had a heart attack. And based on my mother's experience, my husband and I choose him to be our cardiologist b/c we trust him. He listens, explains everything in details. So you can understand any problems that you might have, and when your appointment is over, his nurse brings the summary of your visit with test results and instructions.
