Disgraceful

Made extremely rude comments to me. Short with me, didn't even want to hear what I had to say, got in my face. Not at all happy with Dr. Echlos and would not send any of my friends or family his way. His office staff was nice though.

Creepy Doctor

Bad staff, unprofessional, examination room full of medical waste boxes, etc.This doctor looks like he needs a doctor! He looks like Frankenstein gone hobo. I couldn't understand what he was saying and I wasn't impressed at all by his examination skills. Stay away from this doctor!
