What People Say About Dr. Scott Elsbree, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Elsbree and his PAs are wonderful but it is impossible to get into contact with anyone. There has never been a time within the last 1.5 years that I have called and spoken to anyone with the exception of scheduling. Instead, you leave a message and are very fortunate if you hear back from someone. If you do, they call at a time good for them and likely not you. The portal is wonderful but there have been issues with getting a response from the messaging system.

My husband and I have been patients of his for 21 years. He is the best internist we’ve ever had. He’s extremely knowledgeable, explains everything, and doesn’t rush you. He will also offer a holistic approach if one is available rather than prescribe drugs. I highly recommend him.

Provider is good. Staff is completely incompetent to the non-concierge patients and I’ll bet for the concierge also if my intuition is correct. Communication is lousy when 1-1 needed. Staffs ability to do tasks correctly the first time— appointments, prescriptions— never happens. Re-dos constantly. Appt. length based on issue PREVIOUSLY booked is inadequate. in-office procedure delayed several times. They blew prescriptions at two different pharmacies on the last one. No RX. Wrong dose.

The cost for his so-called hybrid program keeps going up. If you are not in the program, expect to only see his physician's assistant . He is a competent doctor but is now only catering to the rich.

Dr. Elsbree has been my doctor for eleven years and I would never change. He is brilliant, kind and considerate and an excellent physician. And, he listens. If a patient needs extended therapy that he can't provide, he recommends therapists he believes to be the best in the field. I am recovering from a painful, disabling illness due to his care. He does care - deeply. His staff is wonderful.as well.

Dr. Elsbree charges $2,100 a year to join his "hybrid" program to see him, or you get his NP or PA. His office staff is rude, stressed, overworked and continuously gives inaccurate info. You can’t get through to a human, they avoid phone calls, questions and use an email portal for communication. I provide payments for his services as my primary doctor… he should be ashamed to treat his patients this way… another way to make a buck.

Attempted to make an appointment as a new patient and was told that in order to see the Dr. I would have to enroll in his "Hybrid" program. This is just a money making scheme that charges an extra $2,000 a year (plus insurance) in order to be seen, treated and managed by the the Doc personally. If you don't enroll, your are only seen by a NP or PA> Being from NY, I never heard of such nonsense. It's just a way an added way for the this DR. to make money for what he should be doing for FREE!
