So far so good. Dr Eck met with me for annual physical exam which was mostly discussing age appropriate tests and procedures. I felt he actively listened and that his recommendations were sound.

Dr. Eck is definitely the most thorough doctor I've seen in recent memory.. During my first visit he explained very clearly what my condition was, and how to treat the problem. He designed a plan to get me on the road to recovery from a serious, but treatable condition.

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 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.
