At the recommendation of my cardiologist, I was referred to Dr. Eckholdt for my five vessel bypass graft. He was attentive, comprehensive, meticulous, and extremely competent in my procedure and I am enjoying some of the best health of my life at 69. I strongly recommend this gifted doctor for anyone who is facing heart surgery. My surgery was in 2021 and my recovery was 110%.
