Dr. Charles M. Eichler is a specialist in both traditional and endovascular surgery. He has devoted his career to performing complex operations involving all aspects of arterial circulation, including surgery of the aorta, carotid arteries and lower extremities. He has extensive experience in lower extremity reconstruction for both claudication (impaired gait from obstructed arteries) and limb-threatening ischemia (limited blood flow). He is recognized as an expert in hemodialysis access surgery, a minimally invasive procedure to create a passageway that will facilitate dialysis treatments.

Eichler earned his medical degree from St. Louis University in 1978. He completed his residency in general surgery at UCSF, followed by a fellowship in peripheral vascular surgery. He also completed a fellowship in endovascular surgery at Texas Tech University.

    I'm not the doctor he need to call me to exsplain why he came to his conclusion without the test he said was must. But then changed his mind. Not telling the hospital to do the test for an accurate diagnosis. It was him that told me that. But then had them send me home. I have been feeling better last three days . Praying and believing for Gods Healing.

    Dismissive and uninterested in communicating with me. Seemed in a hurry. PA was great

    Dr. Eichler requested an ultrasound examination due to a swelling in the left knee. This was due to a follow-up after a complete replacement of the femoral artery and a bypass performed to clear an aneurysm. The doctor suspected a possible blood clot or pinched points in the replacement blood vessel for the femoral artery. The doctor showed great concern during his investigation of the symptoms I was experiencing. I was completely satisfied with his decision to have a ultrasound test preformed to further diagnose the cause of the swelling. Still pending results.
