Dr. Ecker took on my husband’s care after a table saw accident and treated him from June 2017 thru February 2018. We drove 3 hours round trip to his office about once a month and it was worth it every minute of travel! Dr. Ecker is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. He only did procedures that were necessary to give my husband functionality and eliminate pain. If it wasn’t for Dr. Ecker’s excellent work, I know my husband would not have made this much progress in this time period!

WORTH THE WAIT A+++ Another excellent experience with Dr. Ecker & staff this week. On vacation here a while ago, our 13 yr. old, attacked by a large dog, suffered severe & extensive facial injuries.Our medical contacts in Phila. advised us not to drive back; that one of 'Pennsylvania's best' plastic surgeons was in Wmsprt. Since then, we drive 4hrs. FROM Phila. TO Dr.Ecker: Hard-working, humble-hearted, medically brilliant, and a perfectionistic surgeon. No department-store-Razzmatazz here!

Absolutely terrible experience. I sat in the waiting room for 2 hours and have now been sitting in the exam room going on 45 minutes now. They obviously take on more clients than ther're staff can handle. I would steer clear of this place if you do not want to wait 3 hours to be seen.

Aft re waiting 2.5 hours to be seen I couldn't wait until I got out of there so I could cry. I was so offended by this guy making rude and uninformed comments about my health and appearance which had no bearing on why I was even there!!
