Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Eleje "My basic philosophy to the delivery of healthcare is available, accessible and human care. I believe a patients mind needs to be healed before the body.

I specialize in primary care, and in the Healthcare Hierarchy consider myself the main advocate of my patients."

Patient Comments (4)
El Paso, TX |
I was very disappointed in my last visit with Dr. Eleje.. As I began explaining my sensitive concerns, he received a phone call, and instead of excusing himself to tell the caller that he can talk later, Dr. Eleje proceeded to answer and partake in a discussion over the phone with me in the room. I was frustrated and perplexed. I waited and waited, only for him to give me less time than his chat with the caller. Needless to say, I am switching Dr.'s. One good note: nurses and staff!

The most caring Doctor I have ever had. He sends me to the best specialist when necessary. I'm always able to walk in when I'm not well and I'm seen usually within an hour. He has been there for me when I was in crisis and near death. Thank you for all of your wonderful care

I'll never go back to see this disrespectful person who's claims to call himself a physician.....
in El Paso, TX |
The most caring Doctor that has ever been my primary physician. Never have I been denied an appointment if I called and needed medical attention. He is very careful to send me to specialists when I need specialized care. He also communicates well with other professionals involved in my care.
