This was a follow up visit. Although it took six months last year to see Dr. Elechi for the first time, follow up visits are much more reasonable. It took just one day this time. Dr. Elechi is patient and listens. He explains his recommendations and findings and has never treated me with any arrogance, as some doctors do. His nurse was equally kind and helpful.

Restless leg issues. Also seen in the past for nerve conduction tests. He comes off very reserved, but he is personable as you get to know him. He has has done very well by me and I wouldn't go to anyone else.

Dr. Elechi listened carefully and made referral for PT and scheduled an MRI to follow up on previous diagnosis.

Dr. Elechi is well educated and has always shown me personal attention. If I have any questions he answers them in a way that I can understand. I love seeing the smile on his face as he speaks to me. I would recommend him to anyone who may need his service.

I have been seeing Dr. Elechi since before my diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis in Nov of 2003. He has always been very professional but has done it with a personal caring touch. This is one Doctor that my husband actually loves to be with me, when he can, to see and touch base with him. Dr. Elechi is highly knowledgeable with a multitude of medical conditions that I have dealt with throughout the years. Cancer, Histoplasmosis that disseminated...TIA's and CRPS. SO MANY hurdles that I have had to jump through...he has been right by my side. Dr.Elechi has been a GODSEND to my husband and I and we admire him beyond mere words can explain. His staff ( special acknowledgement to Mary here) is exemplary and between them all I couldn't ask for a better team/family of caregivers! HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Elechi.

Dr. Elechi saw me to help evaluate a lesion on my spine much sooner than I'd be able to see a neurologist, normally. He seems to listen carefully and makes helpful comments. I feel that he will see me through this.
