My husband found me unconscious on the floor and took me to the Emergency room (ED). When the ED doctor sent me home after giving me 2 bags of IV, with a diagnosis of dehydration. My husband called Dr. Eckert's personal cell number and explained the symptoms. She told him to get me back to the IV right away and that she would call them to explain.

Thank you, Dr Ruth, for being the finest doctor I have ever had! See you soon for my annual! Dr. Ruth worked hard to solve my medical issues. I trust her implicitly and love her too!
Dr. Eckert is always available, attentive, sympathetic and thorough. The same is to be said for her medical assistant, Shelley. I have never been sorry that I pay extra for MDVIP for the personal care I receive.
My recent experience with Doctor Eckert during my physical was fantastic. She spent a great amount of time with me, explained in detail all of my tests and recommended a follow up test in the near future.
As a health care professional( a registered nurse) for over 35 years myself, I have experienced and worked with many doctors. Doctor Eckert renewed my faith in primary care physicians. I have never seen or experienced a doctor who understands the therapeutic relationship of really getting to know your patients. She is not only a brilliant Doctor but her commitment to teach me and take time to… See more
Recently, I suffered two physical setbacks that required hospitalization. Although specialists were called in, Dr. Eckert coordinated my treatment, stayed in the loop and followed up upon my release. Her care and concern lent a great deal of comfort to me.
I have been a patient of Dr. Eckert, virtually since the onset of her practice. I have found her to be an excellent diagnostician, extremely caring and a pleasure to consult. The onset of her concierge practice makes her more readily available and able to spend more time with each patient.
So glad I was able to stay with my doctor when she joined MDVIP. I feel very important when I have an appointment.
Dr. Ruth Eckert is an extraordinary physician. She is a loving and kind person who genuinely cares for her patients. It is clear she is passionate about keeping her patients well. She is an excellent listener, and explains medical terms so I can easily understand how to achieve my goals. I couldn't ask for better health care.
Hugs to you, Dr. Ruth!!
