Patient Comments (1)
Modesto, CA |
In the 10 years I have gone to Dr. Elsakr, I have NEVER seen him at my appointments. I have only seen his physician's assistant or nurse practitioner. I have only seen the doctor briefly before a procedure. He does not listen to his patients and basically has treated me poorly. He has a wonderful office staff, however.
