Too bad there is no zero star rating.

I have been a patient with Dr. Eichel for many years, and was always pleased with him and staff - both Robyn and Erin are very nice and seemed very compe tent. If you are essentially healthy, you will be fine with this doctor.

However, if you want something more - like getting a treatment for Hep C that can potentially make you desease free, or anything else of this nature, you will be better off with a professional.

My Hep C treatment by Harvoni was spectacularly bungled by this doctor. He told me that I got approval for 12 weeks of Harvoni. I was very happy to hear that. At the end of four weeks, I asked him if I should be tested for the viral load to see if the treatment is working - because, you know, that is what the blogs say you need to do. The doctor laughed it off, saying that if I am that neurotic of course, we can do that. Nobody wants to look neurotic, right? So, I did not insist. Four weeks later it turned out that I was only approved for four eight weeks, not twelve like he told me. At that point, it was too late - I did not have my viral load results and had no recourse going back to the insurance company and asking for additional treatment.

The doctor was MIA while I was trying to reach the office and nobody called me and said, You know, we bungled your treatment. We are sorry.

They could have added that they are especially sorry because now, if eight weeks were not sufficient for me or if I relapse soon, the additional treatment WOULD NOT WORK because my body would be resistant to the drug.

How can people be co cavalier with other people's life? An apology, maybe? An explanation? Stay away from is doctor. Highly unprofessional and uniformed.
Dr. Eichel has been my Doctor for 25 years - And I have never been disappointed!
