I've lived in Pennsylvania, New York, Florida and now Idaho. Without a doubt, Dr. Eck has been the best primary care physician I've ever had. Thoughtful, thorough, knowledgeable, and caring. Can't stress enough how highly I'd recommend him...

I recently moved to the Boise area and needed a new primary care doctor. After reading many reviews I decided to try Dr. Eck and I am so happy I did! He is a patient and knowledgable doctor. His chair side manners and approach are great. I'm happy to have found my new primary care doctor!

Dr. Eck takes the time to communicate effectively. As a patient you don't feel like you are on a clock. You feel like the Dr.'s focus is on you as the patient. Friendly, professional, responsive and patient focused.

Dr Eck enters the exam room sits down and begins a conversation with you that does 2 things. It puts me at ease as if I were catching up with an old friend and provides him with information to help focus in on any health issues. He has never once glanced at his watch, looked at his cell phone, or made me feel as though he would not spend as much time with me as I want. Excellent communicator and highly recommended.
