Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Does not listen to you. Prescribes very potent and potentially life altering (in a bad way) medications early on in treatment instead of trying other options. There are plenty of other Pdocs in the area, just don't even take a chance with this guy. Plus availability is terrible. He would want to see me again in 2 weeks, but then after leaving I would find his schedule was full for 4 weeks. This happened multiple times. When timely check-ins were crucial for my treatment.

He has helped me more than any other doctor has. I've been seeking help for years to combat my depression, and Dr. Elhaj prescribed a medication that works for me. I have not had depression for more than a year.
