I have been a patient of Dr Elder for about 20yrs he listens to what you have to say and truly care about you
in Parker, Co |
Three incidents over the past 2 years that have effected my health. Over use of medication. DO but does not practice as DO. Prescribed medication that effected my legs. Misdiagnosed gallbladder problem that I had to have removed a month later. Medical Assistant attempted to irrigate my ears-kept pumping cold water in my ears - left me unattended in room during the procedure. I got vertigo, began vomiting and fell hit my head and had seizure and 24 stitches required to my injury.Very upset!
