No wait! Entire staff was very professional and courteous. Office was immaculate, but SO quiet that I wish they had musicor a TV going to muffle all the verbal exchanges. It seems like you can hear everything from anywhere and personally I would prefer a little more privacy. But that is my only “complaint”. I will be sending my husband next and definitely recommend this office.

My first visit was great! Doctor didn’t rush, he asked me in detail about my acne and hyperpigmentation. He recommended medoing a chemical peel, which I’m gonna try out. Of course they showed me before after pictures of patients :) I’ll update my next appointment soon

I went to him because he is there on the weekend. Because of my job i can rarely make a Doctors appointment for the weekday. I have a acne like cist on my left cheek that has been there for twoweeks. I slept on that side of my face one night and the next morning I woke up with this big bump on my cheek. I went to a different doctor first. He gave me an antibiotic to take. The cist and the swelling did not go away. When I went to Dr. Eckman he suggested that he would need to lance it and drain it. I gave him permission to precede. He gave me an injection to numb the infected area. Then he drained the cist. It is several hours later since I went to him this morning. When I close my left eye, my left cheek hurts much, much less. There is less pressure pushing up under my skin and the swelling is starting to subside. I believe in a couple of days the rest of the swelling should go down. And he suggested a follow up visit which I already made with him, to make sure it is healing correctly. His staff is also friendly and helpful. I would recommend Dr Eckman to family and friends.

Only had to wait for a short time, waiting room is very small though and got filled fast. The appointment was brief and he did give the opportunity to ask questions but didn’t really give enough information from which to generateany. Overall he was pleasant and his assistant was able to complete the scripts while he examined and made a quick assessment so he certainly made the encounter brief and efficient. Would have liked a little more time to know where his diagnosis came from and what the purpose of each script was for but it wasn’t terrible.

Dr Eckman is amazing. First the young lady who greets you was extremely friendly and professional. The wait in the waiting area was short. Dr Eckman took his time, listened to everything I was concerned about and addressed each issue. Hesat facing me and explained what needed to be done. He was never rushed and took his time. He made me feel as though I was his only patient for the day. His assistant was very nice. I will DEFINITELY recommend Dr Eckman to everyone I know. Best medical experience hands down.

a good dermatologist is so hard to come by! I'm so glad I found Dr. Eckman. ive been to several others who rush me through the appointment and prescribe with no explanation and try to sell me their products. Dr. Eckmanwas great! He took the time to explain and look at all my dots and spots! he wasn't trying to sell me anything, which I was so relieved about. I highly recommend him!

Very professional, attentive, and intelligent. Remembered my boyfriend, everything about him, and even the date and time of his last appointment (the first appointment he ever had with him) after 10+ months of not seeing him. His experiencethere is what made me decide to go, and i couldn't be happier. Attentive caring staff, healthy sunny wait, in & out. They even advised me on the best economical to get expensive medication i needed for hardy anything. 10/10 reccomend.

Dr Eckman and his staff were very courteous and professional. He took his time and asked the appropriate questions. I walked in, they collected my copay, and I was seen right away! It was great. The only negative I can sayis the pharmacy could not get the medication prescribed and it took the doctor about 24 hours to correct and change.

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.
