This doctor insulted me even before seeing me, prescribed an expensive drug I didn't need that actually made my condition worse, and never explained his diagnosis. Don't waste your time or money!

I do not recommend. He prescribed an antibiotic without explaining why and it worsened my gastro-intestinal problems. Prescribing expensive drugs because you can't diagnose a patient's need is worse than nothing at all.

I have been a patient of Dr. Elashker's for several years. His no BS attitude is honestly rare, but I feel it is always in the best interest of my health. If I am not taking my meds or doing what is best for me, he lets me know, and I appreciate someone caring about my health in that way. He has advocated for me when other physicians didn't even believe I was in pain. The office is the nicest primary care office I have been too–always spotless and the staff always kind. Many receptionists have been there for many years, and know myself and my family well. We are always treated with kindness. I always feel I am in good hands.

I have been a patient of Dr. Elashker since 2001. He is always thorough and never makes me feel rushed. He even gave me a correct diagnosis of arthritis when an orthopedist said I didn’t have it- my MRI confirmed he knew more than the “specialist”. I am shocked to see the negative reviews about him. People have complained that he makes them feel rushed and that is the furthest thing from the truth. I have had other doctors that made me feel like I had to hurry up so they could get to the next patient. That is never the case with him. In addition I am appalled to see that he was accused of inappropriate conduct. He has never behaved in any way inappropriately with me. He is the best doctor I’ve ever had.

I've been a patient for over 10 years. Dr.Elashjer is terrific. Bedside manner warm and appropriate. Has genuine compassion. Front end staff can be inconsistent-not very friendly-turnover is high. Nursing staff is typically very good.
