He did excellent job removing several pre cancerous lesions on my face. Scars are barely visible. Excellent staff and very clean facilities. Very good follow up care. This doctor also repaired a cut tendon on my daughters finger and she recovered full use of her finger. I would highly recommend this doctor and facility

My daughter went to Ecker after a traumatic fall from a second story window while sleepwalking. She needed reconstructive surgery of her nose. Was told her septum was deviated and the nose was shattered. WE told him AND his staff day of consultation AND day of surgery that our daughter had a severe adhesive allergy. Pre-op team laughed and asked what we expected them to do "wrap her face in gauze?" (seriously thought they were kidding). She came out of surgery with ..... you guessed it.... tape and adhesive on her face. Surgery was 7/2 and by 12:30p on 7/3 she was already swollen, red and blistering. Made several calls to the office and felt I wasn't taken serious. By 8:30 that evening I had finally received a call from Ecker himself who told me to "give her 100mg of benedryl and ride it out till Monday." At 10:30p we went to the emergency room of a different hospital and were told that if we had "ridden it out", she would have been dead by Monday of asphyxiation. Ecker NEVER offered an apology, offered to compensate us for the additional ER charges, his offering was to turn us into collections while we fought him through the insurance company and state licensing board. I would NEVER recommend him to anyone. He is smug and pampas. Doesn't care about his patents and his bed side manner is awful. oh and her septum was NEVER fixed. Nose is crooked.
