What People Say About Dr. Noel Elgut, MD

Dr. Elgut is very good, thorough, and I trust him. That being said, if you have to deal with his office staff member Amy, beware. She is very rude and seems to think this her practice. Her opinion is the one that counts and she will talk over you to get that point across. Today was the first and last time I will ever deal with her. The "fair" rating for the staff is based solely on the poor performance of Amy.

Nothing against doctor but staff is horrible and rude. Called me day before my mother’s appointment she needed for ingrown eyelash to say they were canceling her appointment. They were submitting Medicare claims incorrectly- I had a manager from hospice do a 3 way conference call with staff to explain how to file properly. Instead the staff member decided to “quote a paragraph” from the Medicare manual. I wasted 30 minutes of my time and the manager’s time. Not first time they’ve been rude.

Dr. Elgut has been providing me the very best in eye care for the last 15 years. When I needed cataract surgery 5 years ago, he suggested I consider multifocus lens. He carefully covered all the pros and cons. I did go with the special lens and have enjoyed 20/20 vision since that surgery. It has greatly improved the quality of my life by never requiring glasses for even the finest detail work. He is always careful to take whatever time is needed to answer my questions.

They tried two times to get the correct prescription for my glasses. They didn't get it right at all. I finally had to go to another doctor to get the proper prescription.....at my cost.
