Dr. Elias is very disrespectful, and when I asked him a simple question "Is tonsilitus a Virus?" He looked at me and said "Oh My God" for his entire staff to witness. He believes he already answered this question, but the only thing we discussed was Strep Throat, NOT Tonsilitus. Highly disrespectful and arrogant. He didn't even say "Hi" as he walked into the room. I would absolutely not recommend Afif Elias of Elias Medical in Bakersfield.
