He is the worst. I took my mom to him because I wanted to see if she had dementia.He told me she didn't have it and she was just crazy.Well swear 3 months after his diagnosis my mom behavior really changed. She was admitted in the hospital and diagnosed as early stage dementia.Time has passed and her doctor is convinced she has lewy bodies dementia or vascular dementia. He completely missed the opportunity to diagnose her properly which could have allowed my family to prepare for what's to come

Dr. Eckmann came up with a diagnosis that did not match my symptoms or MRI. When specifically asked if I had a particular condition, which matched my symptoms, he said emphatically no. Turns out I did have that condition confirmed by another neurologist who actually listened to me. Dr. Eckmann was so busy typing up his notes I don't think he actually listed. He certainly didn't answer my questions.
