Wonderful doctor. Kind and very informative. Doesn't treat you like a number. Great office staff, too. Very pleased with my visit.

Dr. Elford removed a pleomorphic adenoma from my lower jaw area last year. It was not cancerous and the operation was practically pain free. I received excellent post op care too. He was kind, considerate and had a sense of humor too. I'd recommend Dr. Elford to anyone seeking an ENT.

Good: Nurse at front desk nice. Packet of forms sent in mail before appointment. Bad: Wait time, over an hour past my scheduled appointment. The doctor walked in and called me Sir... did not even look at my chart to see who I was. I was insulted after waiting so long. He belittled my issue and made me feel really stupid for coming in, like I wasted his time. I was sent there by another physician. I did not feel like I could trust his opinion. I will be going to a different doctor going forward.

I saw Dr. Elford in April for a partial thyroidectomy. He took the time to explain the procedure and even made sure to answer my husband and mothers questions. My scar is very minimal and I was back to work in a week. Turns out I have thyroid cancer and Dr. Elford took the time to lay out my options and help me feel comfortable with my treatment decision. I would recommend him to anyone

I would absolutely recommend Dr. Elford. He just performed surgery on my neck to remove a thyroglossal duct cyst. His technique was so good that 7 days after surgery my incision is about 95% healed. Furthermore, he took the time to perform the surgery in a manner that minimized my discomfort afterward. I was really only uncomfortable for two days after surgery. And, he made a minimal incision and closed it beautifully so that there will be very little scarring. Great job!

Dr Elford is a excellent Sergent. Very through and strives to perform pain free operations. He treats patiants as if they were his own family members. I would go back to him if the need presented it's self, and recommend him highly to friends and family.
Washington, PA |
He was rude and arrogant. He spent very little time answering my questions and said my Primary doctor recommendation for an MRI was rubbish. He rushed in and rushed out. No manners what so ever. I left not knowing what was wrong with my left ear. Will never go back there again.
