I am new to the area and Dr. Elder was recommended by a nurse acquaintance. Wait time was next to nothing.. his staff is committed to the patients on a very high level and it is easy to see why: Dr. Elder has a patient-first commitment. I presented with a breast issue and he accelerated my getting additional tests required scheduled and pre-certified. As much as I worried about leaving my doctor of 25+ years in Florida.. I know I have found the right GYN for me in Tennessee.
