I am so saddened to hear of the passing of Dr. Eckerson. He was my favorite doctor at Vernon Urgent Care. He had the sweetest & most calming disposition. I actually told him once that I wished he could be my father. He was that "one-in-million" person who made an impact on every life that he touched. Deepest sympathies to his loved ones.

I am so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I worked with him in the Vernon Office when he first came to Vernon. He was an outstanding doctor and a very compassionate person. My deepest sympathy to his family Marcia Wesloske
