Ratings for Dr. Israel S. Eckman
I had rashes on my face from the drying effects of wind and cold weather. I thanked God for healing me and giving Dr. Israel Eckman the knowledge to prescribe me the right ointments. God bless you, Dr. Eckman! I am very happy and satisfied with Dr. Eckman. I highly recommend him.
This was my first vist to a dermatologist and it was a very nice experience. I did not have an appointment and he seen me right away after filling out only a one-sided form! The Office Manager was very nice and filled out all the demographic info. therefore the paperwork process was fast and not redundant. Dr.Eckman made me feel comfortable and at ease. He was very thorough with his exam and he answered all the questions that I had. He did not rush me and was very patient with me and my 4 year old son with me. I would definitly recommend to anyone in need of a dermatologist.
Not the friendlyist of doctors. Straight to the point which is fine. Problem was he did not explain all the side effects of the medication that could of had serious problems with my pregnancy. Although I was not pregnant at the time I saw him, as a married women (or just a woman in general) who could have gotten pregnant at anytime during his treatment, I did and was not told that the medication I was on could cause birth defects. When I casually noted that I was pregnant during the next follow up appointment, he then informed me that pregnant women should not be on this acne medication. He knew I had another child at home and asked how old he was and I replied that he was one. The doctor then looked down at his notes and raised an eyebrow and said under is breath wow as if to imply that I was having my children too closely together. So rude. I did not have any problems with him before. Like I said, he is very straight to the point, which is fine. But because of this incident I will not see him again. http://www.vitals.com/doctors/Dr_Israel_Eckman/reviews#ixzz3i3wcEap1. Don't want to talk too much crap just want people to be informed because I used other peoples reviews and decided to go see him based on all the positive reviews.
I have been a patient of Dr. Eckman's for a few years now, The Patient First in White Marsh had recommended him to me and I am ever so thankful. I have almost always been able to get an appt. the same day or the following day. He and his staff are very pleasant and the office runs like clockwork. As someone who has had to regularly see a Dermatologist over the last 10 years and has been to quite a few Dermatologists in the Baltimore area due to insurance coverage - I must also comment on how clean the exam rooms are, they are immaculate. The office runs so smoothly there that it makes me wonder what other Dr. offices are doing wrong. As I said before the office runs like clockwork and it is like that every time I have ever been there. I highly recommend Dr. Israel Eckman to anyone that is in need of a Dermatologist in the Baltimore/Towson area. Thanks, Barbara (Parkville)
