Dr Elam delivered my son and did my surgery for the removal of my fallopian tubes. He showed real concern and helped me so much with testing for some other problems I had when my family doctor just brushed them off. He is always so kind and friendly and I am totally comfortable talking to him about things.

I have been a patient of Dr. Elam's for 20 years + and have always found him to be very professional and informative with my care. When I leave his office, I am always educated and happy with the medical care I received from him at that visit.

I have been seeing Dr. Elam for several years. I would recommend him to all of my family and friends. He always takes the time to listen to my concerns and answer all my questions fully. He explains in detail any tests or procedures that need to be done. He genuinely cares about his patients.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Elam. He has been my physician for 24 years. I can honestly say he cares for his patients with an amazing expertise, professionalism, and compassion. He has helped me through the many stages of a woman's life with genuine care and concern. I could not have been blessed with a better physician.

I've been seeing Dr. Elam for a few years. He saw me through my first pregnancy and with my current. He's the most caring and kind doctor I've ever met. My concerns are always addressed, questions always answered. My visits are never too long. My favorite thing about this practice is if anything comes up in my blood or urine samples, something is immediately sent to my pharmacy, I jever have to go out looking for certain over the counter vitamins. Calls are always returned quickly.

I LOVE Dr. Elam. He is amazing. I've been through 2 pregnancies, hysterectomy, and a few other female issues. He is honest, straight forward, and will do what is best for your health. I have been with him for 7 years and I will not see anyone else.

I have went to Dr Elam for over 10 years. He has delivered all 3 of my babies, and I adore him. I will say, I did like it more when he was by himself. Not a fan of seeing other Drs.
