Providing the best patient care possible is of the utmost importance to Carol Ecker, RN, and it’s through years of lessons learned that she is able to offer it.

Ecker, now a registered nurse with Clarkston Dermatology in Clarkston, Michigan, received her nursing education from Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, California, graduating in December 2001, and soon after began work at the Children’s Hospital of Orange County as a neonatal intensive care nurse. She then went on to Mission Viejo’s Mission Hospital Regional Medical Center’s cardiac intensive care unit (CICU), but when the long hours began to wear on her, Ecker sought a different path for her skills.

“I hadn’t been exposed to too much in regard to the aesthetic aspect of medical care, but I was living in Southern California, so I was aware of it and knew it was something many people did,” she says. Ecker began to work with Dore J. Gilbert, MD, a renowned dermatologist with a practice in Newport Beach, California.
