I went to see Dr. Eichorn for chronic migranes to do the botox injections. I will never do that again... he rushes in the room asks nothing about how Im doing or if my headaches are better or worse. Asks me to sit on the stool and goes to to "jabbing" me in the neck, face and head with a needle...no warning..nothing! He did about 26 injections in under 2 min.. he didnt take the time to even be sure I was ok! Didnt wipe the blood from face just left the room! Horrific experience!

I love how Dr Eichhorn takes the time to sit down and explain what is happening to me. He sees that I don't understand, and explains to me until I get it. I'm not a brain surgeon, I don't always see the benefits of doing things his way. I am hard headed, but I have listened to Dr. Eichhorn because he cares and it is obvious. I have not had a migraine is several years, my life has improved because of Dr Eichhorn. Thank you and I'll always be back.

His MA was extremely rude and disrespectful. They ridiculed me for wearing lotion when none of my paperwork instructed me not to do so. He refused to even come in and talk to me. I will never go to him again or send any of my patients to see him either

The office staff are all very friendly. Dr Eichhorn was very thorough and to the point. He does have a stoic personality that may be read as "cold" (he is German I believe, so you may read his persona incorrectly). I was in and out very quickly with all of the information I needed regarding my issue. I would highly recommend him.

Going into the appointment I was not thrilled about the reviews but I needed to be seen pretty soon! He had great openings and the ladies at the front desk Chandra and Tabitha was extremely helpful! He is definitely straight to the point kind of doctor, which there needs to be more of! His Assistant Trey went out of her way to help me as well! This is such a great office! Don't let the other reviews fool you!!

I have never experienced a doctor who was so short, dismissive, and condescending. I went for a test, which he administered as if it was the last thing he wanted to be doing. He raced through it, barely looking at me, and speaking to me no more than was absolutely necessary. The test resulted in no explanation for my symptoms, which is fine, but when I went back for follow-up/next steps, he asked, condescendingly, why I was there. Other doctors have been unsurprised by my experience.
Lexington, KY |
Horrible bedside manner, very rude and insulting. However, he was the only doctor who was able to diagnose my disorder correctly in 6 years. Medically speaking, he's the best doctor I've ever been to. Terrible with making you feel valued and cared for though.

Unethical, unprofessional and incompetent. He will ridicule and insult you . Have never been humiliated by a medical professional before . Waited 3 months for this appointment and only got insulted , that's all he was able to do .
Pleasureville, KY |
I waited 3 mos to spend 5 mins being patronized and insulted by this Dr. Wouldn't send a pet rock to him. If you need answered about your health, go elsewhere, unless you enjoy being degraded!
in Nicholasville |
Loved him. Very direct but spot on! I do not want to be patronized or babied I just want a diagnosis. Very thorough without wasting needless conversation. Straight to the point. Couldn't find any physical problems but doing additional test to rule out any unforeseen problems. Explained it was more than likely a psychiatric diagnosis. That stung...but he was correct! Glad to know what I need to do!!
