Reads chart looks up intermittently at patient, insulting to patient with rude judgemental comments, but the worst is his laziness. Lab tests are not done, he makes patients go on there own and send if they are out of network, he does not study them as disease was not caught, when confronted with this he blamed the patient for lifestyle issue of stress when he missed the reading of a lab that would have caught the disease progression, saved on hospitalization rehabilitation of muscles

When my former doctor, with whom I was extremely satisfied, told me he was going to give up his practice to work for the V.A., I thought it very unlikely I would find a practitioner as capable. I was wrong. The next time I needed medical care, without the benefit of a referral, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Elsen. And I was not disappointed. Dr. Elsen great! He is a personable, highly skilled doctor who clearly loves his work and cares about his patients.
