    Dr. Elgavish is a phenomenal physician! He is good-spirited, courteous, knowledgeable, and always takes time to answer questions from his patients and their service providers. He easily establishes a rapport with his patients and has an excellent "bedside manner". His office staff are always kind, and scheduling appointments is a breeze!

    Dr. Elgavish is very down to earth and easy to talk to. He explained medical terminology in a way that made sense, and made me feel comfortable trusting my health in his care. The front office staff is very nice, quick, and easy to work with - rare to have both the doctor AND support staff so amicable! I would highly recommend :)
