Family Medicine | Male | 61 years old

Good health care involves determining how all aspects of a person's life are impacting his or her health so that appropriate testing and treatment can then be rendered and unnecessary treatment and testing avoided. Dr. Eck believes primary care physicians are a lot like builders who are skilled in many areas, but also know when to call in a specialist. Maintaining good relationships with cardiologists, orthopedic surgeons and gynecologists, for example, is vital to arriving at the desired patient outcomes. Dr. Eck emphasizes the importance of taking time to sit down with patients face to face and concentrating on listening to their stories. He believes that each person tells his or her own story in a unique way.

I HAVE NEVER WALKED OUT OF HIS OFFICE WITHOUT SATISFACTION
in ELKHART |
I have been going to Dr Eck for several years and he always spends plenty of time with me going over my questions and I never feel like I'm being rushed. He has always been very nice and most of the time it is very easy to get an appointment to see him. His nurses are great too.

I have been seeing Dr. Eck for nearly 20 years. I love his direct approach and his expertise.

The new urgent care Family Medicine has long waits for telephone assistance, medication refill took 1 hour of listening to our callers will be assisted in the order in which the call was received. My first visit had a very long office wait. With very little Physician time. I was very unhappy with my first visit to the new building. 2 hour wait to see the Doctor.

He is the most caring Dr I have seen in my 47 years. I would never go to anyone else He also sees my Daughter,Son and Husband all love him. Seems serious at first ,getting to the bottom of the problem.but and always has a positive note to end on. The Main nurse Steph is also a pleasure no matter when the last visit was she always remembers my family
