Testimonials/Thank You

  • July 9, 2017

    Hi Dr. Ecker,

    Personal and special thanks for ALWAYS taking such good care of me. I have the highest respect for you and your staff and genuinely appreciate how, at Minnesota Dermatology, I am treated like a VIP (not deserved, but appreciated immensely).

    Particular appreciation to you for being such a kind, gentle, thoughtful and talented dermatologist. I am glad that I have chosen you over the past nine years...

    You are an excellent dermatologist, an artist with the use of fillers and products, like Botox, but above all else, you are a truly lovely and gracious human being. Period. That matters almost more than anything else - and it's what endures far beyond degrees, credentials, money, etc.

    And, it's what I value the most.

    Many thanks, as always!

    Dear MEDICA (cc'd to us),

    More often than not it appears people are more inclined to complain when things don't appear to go right and/or if the service provided is perhaps less than expected. On the other hand the tendency seems to be to say nothing when things are either as they should be or in some cases way beyond expectations. My purpose herewith is simply to advise that the services provided on my behalf by Eric Englund, PA of Minnesota Dermatology in Plymouth, Minnesota, have been beyond excellent for the last three visits and you should be proud to have him available to your members.

    Dear Dr. Ecker,

    Thank you so much for such a great dermatology rotation experience. I really enjoyed working with you and learned so much from you in just a short month. I appreciate that you took the effort to make each patient encounter a valuable learning experience, and I enjoyed the variety from identifying rashes to Mohs procedures. I also found the Kodachrome exercises extremely beneficial and learned so much with each session. You have been an excellent teacher and I found my rotation with you to be a very useful addition to my primary care focus. Thank you for creating such a warm and friendly learning environment - it's clear how much your patients appreciate your ability to connect with them and provide them with the best possible care. Thanks again for a wonderful rotation and enjoy your ski trip!! Sincerely,

    Priya, 4th year medical student rotator

    Dr. Ecker,

    Just wanted to thank you for a great review of my first year here at MN Dermatology. I really appreciate you as a boss, as well as a doctor. Thank you for choosing me to be apart of your team! Happy Holidays!

  • November 12, 2015

    Attached are before and after photos of my treatments with MN Dermatology. The older photo is from Nov of last year (2014) and I suffered through the holidays and into the spring with lesions covering 60% of my face and up to 90% of my scalp. I saw a commercial for XTRAC laser treatments and reached out to their company for information. I was told you were one of a handful of practitioners who offered this wonderful technology. The XTRAC company helped me get preapproval through my insurer and secure my first appointment with MN Dermatology in April of this year. The newer photo was taken last month (Oct 2015) and I couldn't be happier with the result!! Thank you Dr. Laura, Taylor, Tammy and all the other gals that helped with my treatments!!

    Dear Dr. Ecker,

    I would like to thank you again for providing such a wonderful experience on my dermatology rotation! It was very kind of you to accept me to your clinic for a rotation, especially as I had been looking for an opportunity to learn more derm since the beginning of my 4th year of medical school. I greatly appreciate the extra time you committed from your work to provide a learning experience for me. I value your efforts in teaching me, discussing important topics, and answering my questions thoroughly. I truly enjoyed learning about the wide variety of dermatological conditions and having an opportunity to ask plenty of questions and develop a baseline understanding. I have learned a great deal from you and believe this experience will be really helpful in my journey toward becoming a primary care provider. I sincerely value all you have done to help me out. Thank you for your time and contribution to my education!

    Thank you for letting me complete my elective rotation at your dermatology clinic as well as spending time to educate me on the MOHS procedure.

    Hello,

    I am writing to thank Dr. Ecker for the great appointment we had with him last week. I brought my 16 year old son, RS in... for his first appointment with Dr. Ecker. I discovered you online and made the appt when I saw on your website it said "you will feel cared for as a patient. Dr. Ecker and Eric pride themselves in spending time with you to make sure you are comfortable with treatment plans and fully understand your diagnosis and treatment options before you leave the office" and that is what we experienced.

    RS really appreciated 3 main things:
    • Dr. Ecker was so understanding and supportive about RS having a tough time dealing with acne and applying the medicine
    • He took the time to explain what the medicine does in detail
    • He took time to give RS lots of options in terms of treatments
    RS was so relieved to finally find a dermatologist that he feels comfortable with (Dr. Ecker was the third dermatologist we have visited.)

    Many thanks, JS

  • July 18, 2013

    Dr. Ecker,

    Thank you so much for allowing me to spend time with you in your clinic. It was a blessing to be able to observe how you interact with patients and gain insight from your expertise in dermatology. It was a wonderful experience and I learned so much not only about dermatology itself but also about how to really begin to form that meaningful personal connection with patients that makes the job so worthwhile. I am now more strong than ever in my committment to a career in medicine thanks to my experience in your office. Once again, I thank you for everything, I appreciated every second with you. Hope to keep in contact with you! Best,

    Casey L.(student rotator Summer 2013)

    Dear Dr. Ecker,

    Thank you so much for allowing me to work with you at Minnesota Dermatology. Working with you and your staff has been an amazing experience! Although I have only been at Minnesota Dermatology for a short amount of time, the amount of knowledge I gained while working with you has been tremendous. I've learned so much (I filled two notebooks full of information!) from observing you and working with your staff. I witnessed a wide variety of treatments, whether it was for acne, rashes, skin cancer, or just a simple keratosis (I'll always remember what they lool like!). It was so exciting when you would ask me to identify a skin lesion or issue. I was able to incorporate what you taught me into attempting to try and identify the problem (I think I was pretty good at it too!). I also want to thank you for helping me organize the free skin cancer screening event. Working on this event has challenged my organizational skills and has improved my communication with colleagues and peers. Although the event doesn't take place until the 18th, I'm very excited to see the outcomes of our hard work! Again, thank you so much for the opportunity you provided for me, it was real world and informative. Because of this experience, it has inspired me to study Biological Science at the University of Minnesota. I hope to keep in touch with you throughout my academic career, and keep you as someone I can get advice from and confide in (plus, you have someone that can get you tickets to various gopher games!!). Yours Truly,

    Dear Dr. Ecker,

    A note to thank you for the outstanding procedure you performed to remove a dime sized basal cell tumor from my nose. It required three skillfull "scrapings" to minimize the depth of incision - while it looked awful you said it would heal itself if kept moisturized. I doubted it! IT DID! Who would know! Thanks, no scar! You deserve an applause...Gratefully,

    Dear Dr. Ecker,

    I just wanted to thank you again for helping me with my skin condition. When I had the breakout... all over my upper body I was terrified, as you can imagine a young woman might be. When I came to your office you put me at ease immediately, when other doctors I had seen had failed to do so. My skin is much better today, and I look forward to a full recovery because of your help and the help of your wonderful staff. Thank you so much, I think you are an amazing doctor. Sincerely,

  • February 2012

    Bless you Dr. Oster and Dr. Ecker, too.
    Life would be shorter, if not for the 2 of you.
    Dr. Oster spotted a problem and immediately knew
    To whom to refer this urgent growing situation to.

    And that was how I met Dr. Ecker, hi there! to you,
    You diagnosed quickly and knew exactly what to do.
    And do it you did brilliantly with in just days,
    Not time enough time for disease to enter a new phase.

    So because of you my life has added years,
    And I will not be engulfed with pain and fears.
    Thank you! thank you! for what you have done.
    If this was a war you could say, "Hey, We Won."

    Yes, you did win the battle, and I surely did, too.
    And my family also won all because of the two of you.

You made time to see me, set up a plan and made me feel so confident that the rash would be gone by wedding day. And it was! My skin was clear the morning I woke up. My wedding day was so special and I am just so thankful for all your help.

    Sincerely,
    KJ

  • Dear Dr. Ecker,

    Today is my 20 year class reunion - and I feel more like I should be going to my 10 year! Thank you for all your help this year - you have made a difference in my quality of life.

    Sincerely,
    SG

  • Dear Dr. Ecker,

    Thank you very much for taking the time during your vacation to attend to my prescription dilemma. It went so beyond the call of duty! I appreciate it -- and everything else -- and please relay my thanks to your staff. Particularly Amber, who talked to me that day, as well as Ashley, who called me back a few days ago.

    Sincerely,
    CA

  • You are great! Job well done! -CB

  • Dear Dr. Ecker,

    We wanted to send you a note to thank you and your fantastic staff for being so caring and compassionate. Because of your information and advice, we were able to detect and treat my melanoma early on... Facilitating our prompt visit to the Mayo Clinic was key to my treatment and great prognosis. Thank you for everything you did. We wouldn't hesitate to recomend your fine service to others.

  • On behalf of the City of Plymouth, I want to thank MN Dermatology for participating in the Healthy Living Fair and helping to make this year so successful. We have received a tremendous amount of positive feedback on the event. Fair attendees really appreciated having the opportunity to meet with a variety of vendors and to take advantage of the free health screenings, education sessions, fitness samplers and everything else the fair offered.

    Sincerely,
    Regina Michaud, Recreation Manager - Plymouth Parks & Recreation

  • Dr. Phil Ecker

    Hi, I visited your office back in October right before our wedding. I just wanted to send this email to thank you so much for seeing me on such short notice and for all of your help. [My problem] cleared up a few days before the wedding and my skin looked great. We are still waiting to receive our pictures back from our photographer so as soon as we do, I will send a copy to you. Your kindness and generosity is so greatly appreciated. Thank you for making my wedding day everything it should have been with no worries!

    Dear Phil:

    Thank you for your quality care. As you may know, I have an academic background in health care quality, and I want to congratulate you and your team on achieving the IOM quality standards for care:

    Timely: I got an appointment right away. When I arrived your office was ready.

    Effective: As we discussed, the procedure recommended to me makes sense. Thanks for taking the time to become an expert in this procedure.

    Efficient: I knew my copay right away. The wireless was great so as to allow me to do other work while I waited.

    Equitable: The patient that followed me at my first visit uses a wheelchair for mobility. People with disabilities often get inadequate care. That your office is accessible to all speaks volumes to me, a rehabilitation physician.

    Safe: I felt Ashley and Maria's meticulousness had my best interests at heart.

    Patient-centered: Your process of informed consent was great. The patient education materials were clear and thorough.

    I was also glad to see that you take the time to give back to our profession by having a resident on the team. Overall, I have tremendous professional respect for you and your team. I would recommend without hesitation your office for quality dermatology care.

    Sincerely Yours,

    Karl J Sandin, MD MPH
    Physician-in-chief
