What People Say About Dr. Elenita Usher, MD

Reply
saw her for urgent care at the practice she is now --she is not my primary doctor at this practice. Very arrogant and condescending. Will wait for another doctor "on call" for urgent care in the future. The other doctors are a lot more compassionate.

My mother has been a patient of Dr. Usher for about five years. Dr. Usher has always demonstrated caring and knowledgeable treatment. My family feels quite fortunate to have Dr. Usher as my mother's PCP
