PHENOMENAL Doctor!

Dr. Ecklund has been our family physician for almost 30 years! He is very caring, thorough and compassionate and always goes the extra mile to spend time with you during the appointment to make sure all of your concerns are addressed. Always has a smile on his face and, even though he has many patients, he always remembers family details and my name! His nurse, Dee, is awesome!
