Dr. Ela has excellent demeanor, education and expertise. He has been the easiest to communicate with than any neurologist I have seen.
Cypress, CA |
Does not accept Covered California insured patients
in Orange, CA |
Honest and truthful. Took time to listen to all the questions and unfortunately he had no answers. He was humble enough to tell us he didn't have a solution or treatment with my medical condition.
in Brea, California |
I have been a patient of Dr. Elas for a year and a half due to a work related injury. Dr. Ela always takes time to explain what's going on and how he will provide treatment for my particular injury. He never rushes through the examination and answers any and all questions that I have. He is very personable and sincere. I consider him one of the best doctors that I have ever had. I would highly recommend Dr Ela.
