My quality of life has improved since becoming Dr. El-Hajj patient. I tell my therapy consumers who don't live in the state of PA that I wish that could see my endocrinologist and benefit from her expertise. Her bedside manner is behind excellent. There is a never been a moment she or her nurse Kia have not been anything but professional and taken care of me. I am so very grateful for Dr. El-Hajj practice. Bravo Ladies!!! keep up the good work!!!

Dr. El-Hajj is a very skilled and intelligent physician. However, she can be very intimidating. I'm struggling to be a "good" diabetic and she lacks some of the understanding that I need. Her staff is horrible. Not one ounce of friendliness to be found. Everything is difficult---messages, changing appointments, getting lab paperwork. I'm seriously considering changing just because of the staff.

Dr. El-Hajj seems very good but getting through to an actual person when calling the office is impossible. You will never call and speak to a live person, you will have to leave a message and the response time can range from a day to several days. And return calls are not from the doctor but from an assistant even when asking a medical question related to treatment.

I really have a lot of confidence in the Dr. El-Hajj, but you never get to talk to a person when you call. Wait time for a call back can be anywhere up to 3 days (totally unacceptable) and the office staff is abrupt and quite rude. I was yelled at or reprimanded for calling and leaving messages. This is very disheartening. I would highly recommend Dr. El-Hajj, but hesitate because of the difficulty of getting a hold of her or anyone for questions.

Dr El- Hajj is an excellent doctor. She really took a lot of time explaining my condition to me. Her office staff however is extremely rude and unfriendly.
