in Marion, Ohio |
Dr. Elder is an awesome surgeon. I was in major distress upon entering ER. He performed surgery on my serious health condition with utmost skill. In addition, he treated me with kindness, respect, and dignity. He communicated well with myself as a patient and my family during my 1 week hospitalization. When returning for the follow up visit he explained all of the medical terminology at our level of understanding. He is a very courteous and humble Dr. that I would highly recommend!

He explained my condition and the options he thought should be followed to try and alleviate the problem. He was precise and I was able to understand the options and make a decision to follow his advice by the end of our meeting. He was referred to me by a former patient and I would recommend him based upon my Initial visit .
