Dr. Eckman is a very professional dermatologist and the staff was pleasant. I had the first appointment of the day so there was no wait time. I was seen for a skin CA screening- what I liked most was that Dr. Eckman documented and photographed my moles so that he can watch their progression over time.
Very professional and pleasant! I would recommend Dr. Eckman to anyone.

Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. The waiting room and exam rooms are small and not fancy, a true working environment. Dr. Eckman was great, very professional, explained things thoroughly, smart guy. I plan to go back to him for my check up next year.
Dr Eckman was wonderful. So kind. If i could give more stars i would!
Dr Eckman was extremely thorough with my examination. Got a full check up and was only there for one problem.
Very professional and nice!
Very nice and very courteous very knowledgeable of my situation answered all my questions and explains everything I needed to do toll my follow-up appointment date
I have visited more than one high-end and upscale dermatologists in NYC over the years, and not one of them ever took the time to perform a thorough skin examination as Dr. Eckman did. I was very pleased with his thoroughness, but more importantly, his bed side mannerism. I am a harsh critic who also recognizes a good Dr. when I find one. I left his office feeling very satisfied with my visit. Although there was a bit of a wait, it was worth the attention to detail the Dr. showed me.
Very professional & understanding
Dr Eckman was very friendly. He did a thorough examination. Most doctors will only look at the area of skin that you're having issues with.
He's a nice guy but I didn't feel a connection with him. Very polite but no personality... I will not be returning but I wish him all the best....
Helpful, polite, and direct. This was my first visit to a derm. Dr. Eckman provided excellent insight, advisement, and an effective treatment.
Very informative and told me exactly what the problem was and treated it. My son was very happy
Excellent! Concerned! Intelligent!
Dr. Eckman showed great concern for the "cyst" on my forehead and worked on removing it for some time. Although the cyst was too deep to totally remove he was able to extract enough for a biopsy to determine it's cause. Very pleased with this visit and the overall experience.
Dr. Eckman was more than willing to help me in short notice along with presecribing exactly what I needed. Definitely recommend. Office has lots of parking along with very helpful pharmacy next door.
New patient. Professional, thorough and communicated well my teenage daughter. Looking forward to positive results with the prescribed treatment.
The doctor seems to be very knowledgeable . He did an excellent job removing 2 cysts.
Went in for just a rash and received a complete and thorough exam of my entire body as well
Dr Eckman was friendly, and answered all my questions. He took his time reviewing and documenting all areas of concern, and offered suggestions and mediation options.
I am very happy to have found him, Very happy with service and final outcome. I would recommend him to anyone that is looking for a Dermatologist.
Dr. Eckman came out to the waiting room and introduced himself.Once in the room he went over my previous medical history and gave me a very thorough skin inspection.The doctor had to biopsy several areas and did so without any problem..Ihave a follow-up in I week.He is the first Dermatologist I have gone to who took his time and I didn't feel like his was rushing me out the door!GREAT VISIT!
Very thorough, took his time. Cordial, efficient, and informative.
Very professional and friendly.

Took 10 minutes to be seen and was very helpful, thanks doc!
This was my first visit to Dr. Eckman. Dr. Eckman's medical manner was terrific and he took the time to review everything. He did not rush and the in office procedure was painless and problem free. I would recommend Dr. Eckman without hesitation
Dr. Eckman has a great bedside manner. Explains everything as he goes along. Keeps you informed of his findings.
Very personable. Knowledgeable and excellent bedside manner
Dr. Eckman was a completely thorough and efficient Doctor.
It was an okay experience. He didn't explain much of anything. He gave me a name and I basically went home and googled everything I needed. Had I known I would've just googled my answers and saved myself a trip to his office
Very pleasant office, very thorough examination.
Extremely patient, took the time to ask questions, and seemed very knowledgeable.
The doctor and staff were very friendly and professional. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great doctor.
I love a doctor that listens carefully and time in between to ask questions with no sense of rush. Dr Eckman is right on. His approach is very professional and takes great care with your privacy when handling personal issues. I took the medication he prescribed today and my issue stopped completely, an issue I couldn't resolve on my own for 3 months. Finally I found a excellent doctor.
We were so happy we could get an appointment on the same day.
He was very professional and told me everything he was doing before examinating me. I came in with, what I consider an embarrassing problem, and he just made me feel comfortable.
It was GREAT ?? . Dr.Eckman is extremely nice ,knowledgeable and caring. I was very informed about all that was going on with my face and was provided with samples for my temporary condition. There is adequate parking for the office as well especially in Rockville Center that is great !!
I walked in and the doctor was standing over his receptionist like he was waiting for patients the entire day. Not a soul in his waiting room...Made me feel very uncomfortable
Very nice doctor and staff! I have very bad anxiety and hate going to the doctor but he was great! He was very thorough in his exam. I will definitely go back and currently making appointments for other family members.
Dr. Eckman and his staff were great. Very thorough, thoughtful and approachable.
Dr Eckman and his staff were all, friendly, professional and VERY thorough! Thank you so very much!
I found this doctor in the app Zocdoc. I was having a rather embarrassing issue regarding an ingrown hair. This was the day before Thanksgiving and he was one of the very few doctors open. But Dr. Eckman was able to see me, and provide great assistance. He was able to efficiently treat my wound and knew exactly how to come about treatment. Now, I had to work Thanksgiving, which irritated my wound. However the day after Thanksgiving, AGAIN Dr. Eckman was open! He accepted my walk-in and again provided great outstanding medical service. Eckman is very kind and personable. Before you speak, he's already listening, it's rather cool about him. His office space is quite calm and conservative. Not like a normal busy, noisy & chaotic doctors office. I will definitely be returning to Eckman for further concerns and issues.
Dr.Eckman was absolutely excellent he knew exactly what he was doing and talking about and made me feel better about my situation
He was very thorough, excellent bedside manner. I highly recommend him.,
Small office with personal experience
Dr. Eckman is highly skilled and thorough. I travel an hour to my appointments with him because of this. However, appointments are scheduled too close together and result in long wait times.
Doctor Eckman was great and so was his staff. The wait time wasn't long at all, and I felt very comfortable. He's incredibly polite and sincere, and all my concerns were addressed. I feel really satisfied with my overall visit, and will be back.
Every detail was addressed by the doctor
My visit was excellent. The appointment was perfect because I was seen right away. The doctor was kind and offered me all the possible treatments available for my condition. I waited a short amount of time and I was in the room for about 20 minutes which I consider a rarity these days. The doctor took his time with me and my care and made me feel like he actually cared about my health and wellness. Definitely would recommend making an appointment if you need it, or even if you need a yearly body exam!
Dr. Eckman seemed genuinely thoughtful. Some doctors make you feel like they are uninterested and you feel like they are just waiting for the next patient. Not Dr. Eckman he actually listened and gave good recommendations.
I had a great experience with Dr. Eckman. He was extremely thorough, considerate and sincerely wanted to help me with solutions for my concerns.
Finding great doctors is not always an easy task. Thankfully practices such as this one still exist. Very personalized attention and not a "factory" or large group where the patient gets lost in the mix. I will be returning for any dermatological needs and referring friends and family that require dermatological services as well.
He's very thorough!
It's was great
He was great. Actually wants to see change in his patients
