I have been seeing Dr. Eck for some years now. She is always current with new research, she is thorough, her explanations are clear, and she listens. In addition she cares about me as well as for me. After my recent visit to her, where I told her about my husband's death, I got a card in the mail from her expressing sympathy and support. That is unique and wonderful.
