I love Dr. Eichel and his staff. They are responsive and show respect towards their patients, which I appreciate. Emails and phone calls are returned in a timely manner and they are very consistent with this. Dr. Eichel has a pleasant and kind manner and is caring and compassionate towards his patients. He listens to his patients' needs and is never condescending. I feel like he, as well as his staff truly care about their patients, which is refreshing!
