Dr. Eckman was very professional and very kind. I wasn't rushed at all and he explained everything we were going to do. He even helped with a minor skin issue that I didn't know could be fixed! I went to himfor my first skin check and will continue to go back.

Dr. Eckman has a calming bedside manner. He is very thorough, takes his time, explains everything, and makes you feel at ease. I had a procedure done and told him I could not have epinephrine in my local anesthesia, I havea bad reaction to it. I was so worried. He kept reassuring me he would not use it and even showed me the bottle. I’m going back for more procedures and am not worried or apprehensive at all. You’re in great hands with Dr. Eckman!

Excellent. Wait time was very brief. Dr. Eckman has great bedside manner, he’s very attentive, thorough and informative. He explained his thoughts were about my issue. I asked for results and they gave me an print out of the entire visit,including whatever pictures were taking. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a great dermatologist. I’ve been to previous dermatologists who would quickly glance at an area and prescribe meds. He did not. He checked my entire body to make sure I had no other issues.

Dr. Eckman is always makes sure he sees you on time and even if he late with another patient he steps out to let you know/apologize which is great to know you aren't forgotten. His staff is also polite and helpful.Doctor is also very thorough, takes photos and remembers what you came for prior.

Doctor and his staff were both very prompt and professional. His assessment was both quick and detailed with photos. The Levittown location was a little confusing because his office/room is located within another busy office in the same suite.

In the 10 years that I have been going to the dermatologist, Dr.Eckman has been the best experience I have had. He was polite, courteous, and respectful. I truly felt as though he was listening to my concerns. In my experience,dermatologist appointments are an "in and out" experience. This was completely different. I am so grateful to have found Dr. Eckman!

Fr Israel Eckman was Very nice, gentle, and listened to my concerns. I would highly recommend him. I was there 10 minutes before my appointment, filled out forms, and then had to wait for about 30 minutes to be seen, assomeone was waiting ahead of me. It would be nice if I didn't have to wait, but it's understandable. One thing I don't understand, is that I was asked to pay my copay before being seen by the doctor ? I explained that I would be happy to pay After I was seen by the doctor.
