She'll give you meds 1st listen later.She doesn't listen to your concerns, it's if she is comfortable with helping you. I asked for a referral and she told me to call my ins comp. to get it. It doesn't work that way w/HMO I need her to referr me. She gave my a cream for my face that caused rosacea, another derma Dr. Said it was not for your face. To fix her mistake it cost me $200. She works like she has been in trouble with the med board. She does the bare minimum to help. Save ur $$$ and ti

I've been going to Dr. Elener for many years. I love everything about her and the practice in general. The staff is professional and it doesn't take weeks to get an appointment. When you're sick, you can generally see her the same day. Dr. Elener is very personable and takes her time and listens. She's very caring and genuinely cares about her patients. She'll remind me of things I forgot about when I see her. I highly recommend her.

Have been a patent for a number of years. Dr Elener has improved my health overall, no magic, all results, which she has taught me - I must drive. She may not tell me what I want to hear, she tells me what I need to hear. She provides a good education to improve my overall health. She runs a tight ship, her staff is respectful, not too familiar but cordial, and I appreciate that.

I've been going to Dr. Elener for years. She is very nice and her staff is always very courteous and helpful. She listens to whatever your problem is, makes appropriate referrals when necessary, explains things clearly, and answers your questions. I never have to wait long to be seen. Someone recommended her to me a long time ago, and I've been going to her ever since.

Terrible bedside manner. Made me feel uncomfortable and even shamed to ask about health issues, to the point where I just couldn't face going in to see her to have scripts renewed for basic ailments like high blood pressure, which as you can imagine running out of that script can be dangerous.
