Sunnyvale, CA |
Excellent doctor, terrible front desk staff management, however nice the front desk staff is. Placing people on hold EVERY time they call consistently equals lack of staff or too many patients or both. For such a wonderful doctor this is very disappointing and enough reason for some folks to go elsewhere.

I had my first initial visit with Dr Antoine Elhajjar today and was great! I never felt rushed and most importantly he cared enough to be patient and answer all my questions. Great doctor... thank you!

Dr. Elhajjar is very opinionated and uncompassionate. If you are in a minority status he will do every test possible to pad his bottom line. Does not listen to patient, only hears what he wants to hear. He is RIGHT and the patient is always wrong. If he doesn't believe you are in pain he just tells you to see a Psychiatrist than escorts you out of the room. Of coarse he takes full payment for an extended exam. Shame on him and his staff.
