I have a simple story or more statement, everytime I visit the office I know I made a good choice and enjoy the time, patience and wealth of knowledge Dr. Echarte shares with me as does his front office staff.

from Mary in FL January 19, 2024 for Luis J. Echarte, MD

Unfortunately I lost my first story for my submission. It just disappeared when I was typing it. So I hope this story is at least as interesting and good!
So here we go!

Dr. Echarte has been our primary MDVIP PHYSICIAN for a few years since Dr. Charles Shenker, our MDVIP physician retired. He was incredible! Then Dr. Echarte took over Dr. Shenker’s practice.

At first we… See more

from Thomas in FL November 10, 2023 for Luis J. Echarte, MD

New to Florida area. I met Dr Echarte years ago when he took care of my mother in law and was very impressed. My wife and I signed up with him in June to be our primary doctor. It was the best move we made as he is so dam smart and very caring. His office staff is fantastic. They return calls immediately and really care about our wellbeing. He’s the best of the best.

from Mary in FL March 13, 2020 for Luis J. Echarte, MD

Dr. Echarte and doctors and staff from the  AVENTURA cardiac and pulmonary team were the reason that my husband came back. My husband was in a coma for 5 or 6 days following a major heart crisis. Because of their immediate care at AVENTURA Hospital, my husband came back from what we thought would be his end, to life again.

from Lauren in FL March 10, 2020 for Luis J. Echarte, MD

I have been an MDVIP patient for years and when my doctor retired, Dr. Echarte met with me to go over my medical history and future plans. His inspiring words and the way he made it sound easier than I thought led me to finally take medicine and quit smoking after almost 30 years! I am now a non-smoker of almost four months and owe this fantastic accomplishment to his guidance and wisdom. I… See more

Dr. Echarte,

Much appreciation for always having our backs (as well as all our other body parts)!!! We are grateful for your continual care, concern and attention to our individual needs. Enjoy this special day dedicated to you and all the other devoted MDVIP doctors!

from Michael in FL March 2, 2018 for Luis J. Echarte, MD

I'm originally from New York where I had a long relationship with all of my physicians. After relocating to Florida it was a bit difficult to feel as comfortable with my new physicians until I met Dr. Luis Echarte. I first met Dr. Echarte when my lung condition began to progress and I needed to see a pulmonologist. I was so impressed with his care that I decided to enroll in MDVIP. I… See more
