Dr. Elsea is a very poor communicator. She mis prescribed a Rx for me and then claimed I requested the drug. She did not write the directions for the Rx thus requiring me to call back after the weekend to be sure how to use them. This was worse because of the unnecessary Rx she had me buy. She spoke down to me while discussing my condition. I've had issues with the nurse practictioner dismissing patient concerns in the past. It must be the culture of the practice.

I have been a patient of Dr. Elsea's for many years and I have always received excellent treatment. Her professional attitude and approach to addressing patient concerns and questions is unparalleled. I trust her with my health. I recommend her as a primary care physician to anyone I meet who inquires about wanting to find a "good" doctor. Her staff have always treated me with courtesy and respect and are always helpful in finding ways to "work me in" if I have an urgent problem.

Dr Elsea is very knowledgeable. I didn't think I would find another doctor like Dr Gehi, but I did in Dr Elsea. She really listens to what you tell her and answers any questions I might have..

I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Elsea , as my doctor. She careful and caring at the same time. I have seen her change a course of action, in mid sentence, after not feeling comfortable about what would be a normal decision. I truly appreciate everything she has done my family.

My wife and I saw Doctor Elsea for 15 years before moving out of the area.

Found Dr Elsea in my network, called and got an appointment immediately, staff was fine, professional and courteous. Dr Elsea was very professional, focused, attentive, responsive, efficient..... Not looking for a best friend or to be coddled too.... She was great and I will go back! end of story

I will get to the point. I let several health issues go to long and if I wasn't for the grace of God and Dr Elsea I don't think I would be here! {3 to be exact!!) What can I say I love that woman!
Memphis, TN |
Horribly rude staff . Also, Never called back or sent physical test results. Had to call to get results and all they would say is everything looks good. Really like Dr. Elsea but she lost my business due to her rude receptionist.

Dr. Elsea has a way of doing things that just makes me so comfortable. She's factual, tells you the ins and outs, dos and don'ts. I know she's not going to yell at me or tell me I'm doing the wrong things.
in Germantown, TN |
I travel with my job and have the opportunity to have interactions with many medical professionals. Dr. Elsea and her staff far exceeds many in the ease of making an appointment to the customer service during the visit. Dr. Elsea takes her time to listen and answer your questions . I moved from the Oakland area to the Germantown area and have many choices, but I choose to drive the 45 minutes to continue to be a patient here for the great customer service and diagnostic treatment received.
in Arlington, TN |
Let me explain why I give Dr. Elsea 1 star. Dr. Elsea and her staff are not the nicest, rude, attitude problems and unprofessional. I don't recommend any of my family and friends to go to Oakland Primary Care.
