- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I went to this Dr. For a few years. Was frequently pawned offed to PA, was referred to other Dr. Most of the time. Then when I had a severe problem, I was not treated with professionalism. I was told numerous times after 3 weeks that my lab work was all normal and not to worry. When in fact my lab work was not all ordered and he did not even have them back. This required me to go back for a redraw of my blood and a delay in care of 3 to 4 weeks. I see another Dr. Now. Will NEVER go back to Dr. Eck.
I have been his patient for 20 years and the more I educate myself, the more I can see and PROVE that he does not educate himself, does not stay up to date in the industry, and does NOT CARE. After several attempts to hand me medications that I dont need and he doesn't understand, I started doing my own research and asking questions, none of which he could answer. It became clear that he was pushing pharmacudicals with the biggest prescriber kick backs. Several times his lack of knowledge could have caused me severe health problems and I have had enough! The only people who will approve of his style are those who already call him their family doctor. If you would like your doctor to help you and utilize information and procedures that have come out later than 1980, look elsewhere.
Wish he could do my surgeries. He seems more knowledgeable then the rest of all my other doctors combined. I believe that he really does care about his patients and the office staff is great.
