Terrible, this Dr. has no respect for others time, Has no clue when his appointments are and has one of the worst practices I have ever experienced. He may be the best Dr ever but his practice is awful

Dr. Ekici is head and shoulders above most gastro docs. My son suffered for 16 years with cyclic vomiting disorder and severe abdominal pain requiring hospitilization. He had lost faith after seeing many different doctors. Fortunately, during one of those hospitalizations Dr. Ekici was the on call. He gave my son his life back by properly diagnosing and treating him. He really cares and takes the time to listen and put the pieces of the puzzle together. We just wish we found him sooner.
