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.
