Patient Testimonials

Dr. Eichenbaum is the Greatest!

My elbow had multiple fractures and dislocation! Dr Eichenbaum performed the complicated repair surgery within 12 hours of the accident! I had to be transported from Sussex County, DE, (where NO other surgeon would touch the needed procedure) to New Castle County, where the challenging procedure to repair my elbow was promptly performed by Dr. Eichenbaum. I use my arm, now, as if nothing had ever happened. The Dr. as well as the staff were all fantastic, professional and caring. I loved going to all my follow up appointments.
