Patronizing and dismissive, Dr Eckelkamp missed a major neurological diagnosis because of his arrogance. Would never recommend this doctor.

Up to date knowledge and a conservative approach. I didn't feel pushed into treatment I didn't want.

Engaged me in a discussion about discontinuation of tobacco use. He attempted to invoke shame, literally ignored me when I said, "That doesn't motivate me, but the fact that I don't always feel good when I do it does cause me to think about quitting." It was like I hadn't even said it. He said, "Yeah, but when your kids get older, what about that?" .... I let him keep going, said that I heard him, and then decided that I wouldn't come back. There was a $20 charge on my bill for that, btw.

Prescribed expensive medication that sent me to the ER. Then placed the blame for the horrible side effects on the depression that I was never tested for with proper psychometric tools and neglected to find me a psychiatrist in a timely manner. Lost three days of my life dealing with the side effects of his prescription and had to go to the ER twice. Would not recommend.

Poor clinical knowledge and unwilling to work with the patient on a treatment plan. Dr Eckelkamp was overconfident and dismissive. Would not listen to my concerns and didn't seem interested on hearing my feedback.
