My Experience

Cynthia Eckert, MD, has been in practice since 2002 after doing her residency at Truman Medical Center and University of Missouri.

She has a variety of specialties and is passionate about supporting women through wellness, contraception, fertility, pregnancy, surgery, or any of their healthcare needs. She works to develop physician/patient relationships based on trust, respect, and education.

I feel honored that I am able to practice Obstetrics & Gynecology and become a part of a woman’s healthcare throughout her life.

My goal is to develop physician-patient relationships which include respect, trust and education.

Through this relationship patients are able to make informed individualized choices regarding their healthcare.

Outside of Work

Connection with the KC community.

Outside of work, Dr. Eckert spends as much time as she can with her friends and family. She particularly enjoys spending time with her daughter. They love playing, riding bikes, reading and cooking together. When it’s possible, she enjoys traveling as well.
