I first went to Dr. mcElreath in 2008 when I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. I recently was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and again he did the surgery and follow-up. He is an excellent surgeon and is truly concerned for his patients. He relates well and is truly caring. I have complete trust in his abilities.

He's not up to date about Parathyroid problems/surgery. 1st appt. he did a breast exam, nothing said about parathyroids. Next appt. he saw nothing in my lab results/scans to indicate surgery, told me it wouldn't help anyway since I had Hashimoto's (which I hadn't been tested for yet). Took a personal call during my appt. then told me I was out of time to ask questions. I went to a different doctor who removed **TWO** tumors. I feel great now. Time for him to retire
