Gives all of the facts. Thorough.
Dr. Eckel truly cares for his patients. This is the second pregnancy that he was my doctor and he was wonderful both times. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a caring OBGYN.
Wonderful, careful, professional listener and physician.
The staff is always kind and it feels nice when they remember us and our names and when they ask how our newborns and family is doing.
The online portal helps to provide all your information to the office. The entire staff was exceptionally professional and friendly. The office was clean, good location, ample parking. I was also able to get my blood work done the same day right in the office!
The location of the office is fairly close to where I live.
The entire appointment was prompt and the doctor answered all my questions.
Very quick! I was in and out! No waiting
I appreciated being able to fill in patient forms online in advance. Staff was efficient and personable. Doctor was thorough and efficient, but personable and caring.
Dr Bernhard is a caring professional
Dr. Bernhard is always great with answering questions and explaining the process as we go along.
Dr. McCauley was considerate, efficient, and made sure all my questions and concerns were addressed. I've been to Dr. McCauley before, and always found her to make the patient feel like an individual - not merely one of the many patients she sees each day. Despite her patients being booked for far less time than I think is sufficient, I didn't feel rushed in and out of the office.
Staff professional and friendly.
Dr. Eckel is professional, thorough, non-judgemental, and friendly.
Dr. Eckel answers questions in a very professional manner.
Dr. McCauley is very calm and to the point, listens well and is down to earth in her style of interaction.
Friendly, competent staff. They introduced themselves as we first met. Dr. Bernhard was also friendly and explained to me what she was doing before she did it. She made me feel as though she had all day to visit with me!

Dr. Bernhard is an amazing doctor. She has been great treating me during the past years. She answers all the questions and explain everything. She is kind and really cares about her patients. I trust her and really like being her patient.
The appointment timing was great, not too long of a wait. I always appreciate Dr. Eckel's efficiency combined with bedside manner/care. I can tell he is busy but his ability to always cover everything and seem genuinely interested in my pregnancy is nice
Telehealth is impossible to use via mobile. Once you click the link to sign in, it is required to enter your birthdate. In order to do so, you have to move the calendar month by month....so if you are over 50 years old and you have to click 12 times for each month of the year, you have to click the button over 600 times.
The doctor took time to listen to all of my concerns.
It was my first time getting a wellness women check. I told them I was nervous about it and she didn't really explain the pap smear at all. I felt like I didn't know what was happening. It was really overwhelming.
Dr. Eckel is always so frank yet caring. Perfect combination for a physician.
I love Dr. Eckel. He has wonderful bedside manner and is always so kind. That goes for his long time nurse Kate too!
I got the answers I needed and the referral too.
Extremely polite staff, Dr. Eckel is very professional, gentle and explained step by step what to expect and avoid during pregnancy.
Dr. McCauley was excellent - professional, personable, and present.
She took time with me and asked me if I needed a more thorough exam even though I thought I might have a bladder infection.
I love Nancy McCauley and will continue to see her until she retires.
I was brought back on time. The doctor is wonderful - very caring and seems to listen and be proactive.
Friendliness, efficiency, thorough care.
Dr. McCauley talked me through every step of IUD insertion before doing anything, doing her best to prepare me for the feelings I would experience with her next move for even the smallest movement. She made sure to ask me if I had questions before and after, and checked in with me throughout. The nurse did not say much, but I felt she was also a comforting presence. After the procedure, Dr. McCauley and the nurse (I can't remember her name unfortunately, but she's my regular nurse when I visit and she's amazing) made sure I was good to go and continued to reassure me about the entire process. I felt very comfortable in such an uncomfortable procedure.
Doctor took plenty of time to explain the procedure before we started. Gave me info each step of the way, so no surprises. Procedure was quick and low on the pain threshold. Appreciated the time after discussing options and next steps.
I love Dr. Eckel. He is a great doctor and the girls in the office are great!
The staff was very nice as was the Doctor. They were also close to on-time, which I appreciate.
Dr. McCauley provides a friendly atmosphere to be able to discuss all concerns including intimate ones.

I was very satisfied with my general experience with Dr. Bernhard. She was professional, sensitive, competent, and reassuring.
The office is always clean and the staff are very friendly

Office was efficient and knowledgeable. Wait time was nil. Good bedside manner.
The waiting room was well positioned and clearly organized per COVID requirements. The staff was friendly. My appointment was timely and not rushed.
Not a long wait, concerns addressed.
I appreciate that I rarely have to wait long to see Dr. Bernhard and never feel rushed. She always gives me all the attention I need and provides me with helpful guidance to all my questions. Recently when asking about inducing labor early, she gave me a lot of good research/information to help guide my decision, rather than me feeling forced into doing one thing or the other. I have really enjoyed having Dr. B as my Doctor!
I really can talk openly to Dr. Bernhard. She is easy to communicate to. I am very happy when I leave the office.

Dr. McCauley worked with my wife and helped explain the problem. She recommended a new medicine and gave us samples to last until our online prescription is filled.
I had my last baby with Dr. McCauley and loved her manner that I followed her when she left Valley OB and followed her again when she came back.
I did the procedure with my own gynecologist.
She fully listened to me and didn't try to rush me out. She had genuine concern and care.
Dr. Bernhard did most of what I went to her office for: prescription renewal, mammogram order, and doctor referrals.
Dr. Eckel is so kind, genuine and takes the time to listen to my concerns and then just takes action. His assistants are the same way.
Excellent service and personality.
The office took precautions to ensure everyone was protected, as much as possible, from COVID. I liked being able to check-in online so I didn't have to complete a bunch of paperwork when I arrived.
Dr. Eckel is consistently professional and thorough.
My doctor is amazing, I'm so glad that she is back!
They were on time and always very sweet! Love Dr. Eckel and his staff!!

Dr. Bernhard is a great doctor. Great beside manners and made me feel very comfortable with delivery.
Great nurses and doctor and thorough visit.
I always look forward to my visits with Dr. Eckel. Yesterday was my 22nd annual exam plus in 2018 due to the possibilities of my having cancer, I saw him more often and underwent surgical procedures with him. Yesterday for the first time Kate and Dr. Eckel helped me use an electrical examining table since my knees have now made it more painful to ascend regular tables. As usual Dr. Eckel was thorough and gentle during his physical exam and specific in questions targeting my health issues. I appreciate the follow up tests he has ordered for me and will get them done ASAP so he will get the reports. Under these unusual COVID challenges the only noted difference in my care yesterday was that Dr. Eckel, staff and patient all wore masks. All other procedures were as usual and expected. I appreciated that my one on one annual visit was not postponed. Thank you!
Dr. Eckel is the best doctor I been his patient for over 20 years.
I really liked Dr. McCauley and felt comfortable with her during my appointment. I also thought that the nurse practitioner, that helped me, did a really good job as well.
Very friendly staff and very thorough doctor that listened to my history and took all the necessary steps to get us on the right track toward any recommendations of issues found.
Friendly, expedient, comfortable environment.
Dr. Eckel is personable, knowledgeable and professional. He's the best!
Dr. Eckel is always so friendly and open to answer any questions.

I did not have to wait long to see Dr. Eckel.

I've been seeing Dr. Ekel for 25 years. One of the best doctors in the valley.
Dr. Eckel gives you his full attention and listens.
Listened to my concerns and together made decision.
Friendly staff, small wait time.
I've been having Dr. Eckel as my doctor since the pregnancy of my second daughter. I trust him with my health and he's always supportive and understanding.
I've been a patient of Dr. Eckel's for over 20 years. Each visit ends with a discussion in his office. He always answers my questions with the utmost professionalism & great empathy.
Dr. Eckel and his staff are always pleasant.
I am a little over 6 months pregnant and I asked Dr. Eckel if I was too small at my last appointment based on my measurements/the weight I had gained. He was reassuring, explaining how spot on my growth was... he also said some very kind and positive words to a first time mommy whose emotions are running high. Little things like this make me so happy I found him to be our obstetrician.
I like that I can pay online, fill out the paperwork prior to the appointment and the doctor is very thorough.
I had my annual well woman appointment scheduled a year in advance for Thursday, August 13, 2020. The week before my appointment, I received a call saying that Dr. Eckel will be out of town on Thursday, August 13th and Friday August 14th, so the office rescheduled my annual well woman exam for Friday, September 4, 2020 at 11:30 a.m. When I arrived, the front office staff told me that Dr. Eckel had to leave to go deliver a baby so they had to reschedule my well woman exam for Tuesday, October 6, 2020 at 11:30 a.m. I asked if I could be put on a Dr. Eckel cancellation list in case any earlier appointments became available. The front office staff said they put my name on a Dr. Eckel cancellation list. Two days later I went back into Dr. Eckel's office and asked if he had any cancellations or if I could see Dr. Bernhard instead because I wanted to be seen before October since I was originally scheduled for my annual well woman exam in August. The lady at the front desk said office policy does not allow one doctor's patient to see another doctor. Consequently, this lady at the front desk found a Dr. Eckel cancellation on Thursday, September 10, 2020 at 8:20 a.m., so I was finally able to see Dr. Eckel on that date. After receiving my new appointment date of September 10th and I was driving away from Dr. Eckel's, I received a call on my cell phone from a different lady in Dr. Eckel's office telling me that there are no cancellations on Dr. Eckel's schedule, but I can see Dr. Nancy McCauley. When I told her that I was just driving away from their office after finding a Dr. Eckel cancellation on September 10th, she admitted to me that she never really looked for any Dr. Eckel cancellations, but was instead trying to make me see Dr. Nancy McCauley because she is returning to their medical practice after being gone two years. How strange that this lady in the office says I can see other doctors in their practice, but the other front office lady told me that patients are not allowed to see other doctors in their practice. Also, I find it strange that I must drive back into the office in order for someone to find me a cancellation on Dr. Eckel's schedule.
He was friendly but professional.
Nancy is great, really caring and knowledgeable.
I felt the exam was thorough and Dr. Eckel\/staff are wonderful.
Dr. B is an excellent physician. She sits down and talks with me about any changes, concerns, etc. before an exam, and addresses those concerns. She never makes me feel rushed or that my questions regarding changes in my gyn health are trivial. She spends a lot of time with me each year. I appreciate that!
Dr. McCauley took the time to LISTEN first then recommend based on my concerns. I did not feel rushed out of the room and I felt my time was valued just as much as hers. Very happy with the visit.
Very friendly nurses and receptionists, and both Dr. McCauley and the ultrasound technician were very patient and understanding.
I didn't have to wait long. Both the doctor and the assistant were very professional and friendly.
Modest wait time; experienced professional physician; time for feedback post exam.
It was a pleasant visit with the doctor.
Dr. Bernhard was very patient, kind, warm, and knowledgeable!
Dr. Bernhard is always so friendly and makes me feel very comfortable. It was a quick visit with minimal wait.
I brought my newborn baby and the nurse and Doctor Bernhard were so helpful in helping me take care of him.
She makes me feel very comfortable and and is always understanding.
Dr. Bernhard efficiently covers all my issues & makes me feel comfortable.
Dr. Bernhard has the best bedside manner of any doctor I've ever encountered. She is very knowledgeable and always makes you feel so comfortable.
Spoke to her about several concerns that I had, she ordered a number of blood tests, and then when the results came back she was very vague about the results. It was as if she didn't take the time to read her notes on my chart to remind her of why we ran the tests and then to evaluate the results based on my past history/individual baselines. I felt like it was a complete waste of time and resulted in a needless bill. Received not answers or help pertaining to what we had discussed at length.
I like the way Dr. Eckel listens to his patients.
Anita is always great! Kind and always listens.
Dr. Bernhard took the time to discuss lab results and go over any questions I had about planning for a future family.
Dr. Anita Bernhard is an exceptional doctor. She takes time to hear what her patient has to say about their body to gather necessary information to treat her patients. Very professional and compassionate.
There was far more discomfort and pain in the procedure that was never communicated with me. I feel as if an emotional discussion should be included as it is deal with a personal issue
I am happy with my Doctor but the back office staff, not so much. It took me 6 months to get my IUD and then once I got it, it had the wrong insurance information - even though I called and had it updated. After it was submitted again I was told that they still have the wrong insurance and that they might not cover it now because it's too late. I have an email trail of all correspondence with Lilia. Very frustrating. I finally talked to Leslie who was very helpful and she told me that the billing is transitioning because of a merger so I'm not even sure what the claim status is right now. She did say she will follow up but the lack of response from Lilia over a 6 month period and the lack of follow up and follow through on her part as it relates to my insurance is just unacceptable.
Normally I see Dr. Eckle but this time I saw Dr. McCauley, she was very nice seem very knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable.
She knows her stuff clinically and she's super nice.
Answers all of my questions. Great bedside manner. Always puts me at ease.
Everyone is very nice & professional.
Dr. Eckel has always been a great doctor. He explains things in an easy to understand way.
Dr. Bernhard is very patient, understanding and empathetic to my issues going on. She makes me feel comfortable and she doesn't make me feel as though I'm wasting her time.
I was told at the start my insurance wasn't accepted even though another secretary had called and gotten approval, the current secretary said she didn't think it would be approved. I found this doctor through my insurance. The secretaries talked loudly about me in the front office in front of all the other patients in the lobby. Then, the medical assistant wondered why my blood pressure was so high.
Wait times for a very brief appointment have consistently been long, at least 30 minutes later than my apt time. I was also informed during my last visit, not prior to the visit that my insurance is no longer accepted.
The front desk was very accommodating to my individual needs and allowed me to reschedule as necessary, and the level of nursing care and compassion was high. The Doctor was kind, informative, and sincere.
Everyone in office is very friendly. Dr. Eckel is very thorough and answers all my questions.
Great doctor. Always thoroughly answers my questions or concerns. Good attitude and smiles (even under the mask) which I appreciate.
Dr. Bernhard is a great listener and addresses all issues/problems postpartum.
Good visit with enough time alloted to meet with Doctor for a new patient visit.
Staff is always friendly, Dr. Bernhard is thoughtful in her examinations and the office is well run.
My appointment was on time and Dr. Eckel was very thorough.
I think the doctor is extremely experienced and educated and very professional.
Dr. B is a warm caring doctor with a fabulous bedside manner. Very understanding.
Dr. Bernhard was very good with informing me with how the IUD works and very kind.
Dr. Eckel always takes his time with me.
Dr. Bernhard is always attentive and answers all my questions. She is aware of my history and knows what to say/do in order to help ease my concerns/anxiety.
Dr. Eckel is incredible. Very attentive, answers any and all questions, supportive, kind, friendly, and will do whatever makes you comfortable. If I had 100 babies I would have him deliver all of them. Switched to him at the very end of my pregnancy and so glad I did. He took such good care of me.
Annual check-up: Dr. Eckel is very thorough in checking thyroid, heart, lungs, and lymph nodes and breasts for possible cancers. His explanations are direct and reassuring. My pessary needs to be removed every three months for cleaning and to check that vaginal tissues are healthy. Again, Dr. Eckel is skilled at this. He is able to minimize the discomfort of extracting the pessary and reinserting it.
All of my questions were answered. They were explained in a way that I could understand.
She makes you feel very comfortable and at ease.
He explained details about the test results.
Efficient staff and excellent MD; I have been seeing him since 1997.
Was able to get an appointment quickly and doctor was very professional and polite.
My IUD was placed in office and normally I have it has to be done as an outpatient surgery.
My appointment was at 9am and they took me in not long after that. Also, the doctor took her time to explain our next steps. The office was very clean.
Dr. Eckel has great patient care. He answers questions, educates the patient and is very warm and kind.
Staff friendly & handled promptly.
Friendly staff. Appointment on time.
She is always so personable, friendly and patiently answers my questions. She's empathetic and I never feel like I'm just a number on her list of patients that day.
We made a plan to address all of my concerns.
My provider is very kind, down to earth and informative. Everyone I was in contact with was great including the tech that took me back.
He is thorough, professional, and answers all questions.
He listens to my concerns and treats me with respect. I was a patient for many years then my insurance changed and I could no longer see Dr. Eckel. I happy to be back under his care!
Dr. Bernhard actively listens and tries to understand concerns and questions.
Receptionists were friendly and efficient, atmosphere of office was calm/relaxing. After paperwork, short wait time. Dr. McCauley was busy so I was seen by Dr Bernhard instead, no problem as I know this is always a possibility. Very nice
From the time I got there till the time I left I felt that the waiting time was good and everybody including the girls who were sitting at the front desk were very nice and helpful and friendly. Plus the place was clean and up to CDC guidelines because of COVID-19 and there was hand sanitizer in the waiting lobby as well.
Dr. Bernhard is always very friendly and cares to listen to what I have to say. She also answers any questions I have and I appreciate the fact that I don't ever feel the appointment is rushed.
Dr B, Lilya and Elyse are wonderful
Dr. B is always great with everything that she does! She takes the time to address all of the concerns that I have at that time.
Dr. Bernhard is a great physician and always spends time with me. I highly recommend her. Scheduling can sometimes be difficult especially with ultrasound and the staff is a bit abrasive about that. Also, if the doctor is delayed more than 30 minutes, a courtesy call would be appreciated. I do not like sitting in the office given Covid and it would be nice to have a heads up.
Best OB doctor I've ever seen.
She was wonderful, I felt like she actually listened to me, unlike other doctors. She did a great job building rapport, was professional yet friendly and warm, and she did a great job addressing my concerns.
Dr. Barnhard is very personable and professional.
She is so personable, and nothing is a silly question to her.
Very professional and friendly.
I was highly satisfied with my visit because they are following the safety guidelines and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Everyone had a mask and gloves there was sanitizer at every station. Everything looked very clean. They made me feel safe.
Dr. Bernhard is kind and compassionate. She treats me with care and I feel very comfortable with her. She answers all of my questions, no matter how many I come in with.
From start to finish, everything was welcoming, professional, and simple. Dr. Bernhard and staff are incredible.
I was initially seen in a timely manner to start my glucose test, but my vitals were taken 45 minutes after consuming the drink. My blood pressure was elevated but likely due to other factors. My visit with the OB was very brief and I was told to come back in a week, although I tried to express that I have a machine at home and I can check my blood pressure and report back if any concerns.
Dr. Eckel and his staff are always kind, helpful, knowledgeable and professional. I recently moved 50 minutes away from his office and still make the drive to see him.
The doctor was very attentive and kind. There was not a lot of wait time and I felt she answered my questions.
