The wait time was extremely short! Dr Echenique was very professional; he took his time to answer all my questions and help me understand what was going on. He was polite and didn’t make me feel like I was being rushed. I definitely would recommend him.

I definitely had to wait a while to see the doctor, but once I did everything happened quickly. He seemed eager to solve my problem which is refreshing. I appreciate that. However, definitely ask questions because he did assume that I understood some of the treatment that I did not.

Went in for some shoulder pain. Dr Echenique was great, very professional as we went through the treatment. He indicated it was normal wear and tear and said it was common among athletes with throwing action. It was assuring to getthe thorough diagnosis from him and his assistant followed up with a prescription for PT if I needed it.

I have no issues with Dr. Echenique but his front desk staff is unprofessional. Once an appointment was made wrong and I had to come back. Today I waited forever just to find out the never really checked me in -told me it was my fault because I spoke to the wrong woman. Shouldn’t she have directed me to the right person and told me that it was not her job? They also told me there was no way my appointment could have been at 8:50 because they don’t take 8:50 appointments - I have the confirmation. All communications are delivered with an attitude. Rough because I really like the doctor!

He's a great doctor who took the time to call to find out how I was doing after receiving treatment after the first visit. The first visit took a while which I think that day they were very busy. All othervisits after that were prompt, wait under 5 minutes. Once I came a few minutes before my appointment was seen right away. They respond to the paitent portal in a timely fashion and will so call you as well. Will definitely recommend.

Doctor made me wait about 20 minutes in a room, and saw me for 3 minutes before he walked out. I then received a summary of what he supposedly recommended me to do while we waiting for MRI results. Again, he saw me for 3 minutes.

To start the receptionists are welcoming,helpful and attentive to your waiting time. When I was place in the room the dr assistance was also very sweet, attentive of what I was telling her and what was going to be the nextsteps The dr is also approachable, attentive to where my pains were coming from He also explained the steps he was going to take. Had an X-ray done. The dr explained what was the results and the plan of action he was going to take. He made sure I understood. One thing I can say is I’m terrified of needles he gave me a shot on my knee and I never felt it, U highly recommend this clinic and the dr. When a person is treated in the way I was I have to let other client know. This is hard to find

I always appreciate it when doctors are willing to educate their patients and help their understanding, and Dr. Echenique did exactly that. The consultation was long and thorough, and he discussed several different approaches to my herniateddisk — as well as the pros and cons. Would highly recommend to anyone. The reception staff could be more friendly. The Dr's assistant was great.
