What People Say About Dr. Elaine Harpster, MD
Reply
Dr. Harpster is one of the most caring and thorough dermatologists I have seen. She treated a difficult health problem with the utmost kindness, compassion and professionalism. Her bedside manner is approachable, and she relates to her patients on a very respectful and genuine level. To her, no question or concern seemed too trivial to address, and I never felt rushed. I highly recommend her. The Sharp Rees-Stealy Clinic at Fir Street is an amazing building too.
