My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My grandfather was an old-time family doctor who took care of the whole town. He was the reason I went into family medicine. I also wanted to take care of the whole person—mind, body and spirit. I want to help my patients live full, healthy lives and MDVIP provides me with the tools and support to do just that. Another facet of the MDVIP practice model is the availability of the latest advances in traditional medical therapy and cutting-edge, emerging research in prevention. It is a very exciting time to be alive! I chose to be affiliated with MDVIP because I want to work with my patients to maximize their vigorous, healthy lives. Quality of life matters, and together we work as a wellness team.

Dr. Eckert has really come through for me on several occasions. I once called her from Albuquerque when I realized that I had forgotten to pack my antibiotic and she responded within minutes and was able to help me get my medication so that my schedule would not be interrupted. Another time I was in Washington and developed an infection and she also responded quickly and prescribed an… See more

Thank you, Dr. Eckert. I like the fact that you are always available, since I seem to have weird things happening at weird times!

from Peter in AZ March 4, 2018 for Ruth L. Eckert, MD

Dr. Eckert is a remarkable physician, which is why we've been seeing her for so long. In fact one of us--Peter--has known Dr. Eckert since 1984! Dr. Eckert is first and foremost a brilliant doctor--yet she combines her skill with passion for health, compassion and empathy for her patients, and an infectious enthusiasm for new and useful information. She's a star!

from Patricia in AZ March 3, 2018 for Ruth L. Eckert, MD

My doctor/patient relationship with Dr. Ruth Eckert began when she was early in her practice. She is not only an outstanding and competent physician, she is a wonderful woman. Dr. Eckert and her MA have always been there for me when I have needed them. I don't have any funny stories or pictures to share. What I can share is a comfort level knowing she is my primary physician.
