Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Eaker "The patient and I are partners.  I deeply respect their own sense of their body and use that as a starting point.  I feel my responsibility is to provide guidance, options, and choices when it comes to making health decisions.  The final choice for any action resides in the patient herself."

in Augusta, GA |
He was the best doctor I had. He made the experience of giving birth so much easier than I had planned in my mind. I was less scared and knew my baby and I were in good hands. He has really good bed side manners. Overall a genuinely nice guy who does his job well!
