Ekman moved his practice to NC in 2013! I had a hip surgery and have also been told that he was incompetent. Never came to talk to me or my family after the surgery. There was NO follow up care, which, with hips and kneed is critical! Also got many phone calls from his nurse or PA but was told he does not call patients! Also found a huge turn over in front office staff, nurses and PAs...something is wrong! Worst experience ever! do not even go for a consult:(
