Patient Comments (5)
Poor follow up-and too big of an ego. I have been an RN 43 yrs and have advocated for patients as well as myself and this Dr is above even asking for second opinion even though it was advised by one of his colleagues. Furthermore he thinks nothing of kicking a patient out of The practice if his ego gets offended. BEWARE

Dr. Eckart was rude, arrogant, and perhaps was recommending to me questionable surgery. He told me he could 100% cure my AFib with a procedure used to correct Atrial Flutter. When I didn't understand how this would work (since another electrophysiologist some years ago had told me there was a good procedure for AFlutter but not for AFib) he said appointment was over and asked me to leave. He also was careless as he thought I had hypertension which I have never had.

Dr. Eckart is very knowledgeable and has great bedside manors. He has always work with me and returns my calls. He was the only heart specialist I could find who actually diagnosed me correctly. I trust him with my life.

Dr. Eckart has too big of a practice. He is a good Doctor but impossible to see. The nurses do not call back, new doctors do not communicate with Dr. Eckart or each other. They have messed up medication twice.
