Love Dr. Elhaj. He was easy to communicate with and took time to listen. The electronic checkin was easy and impressive. My only suggation would be to have nurses or lab area that drawers your blood in their office. Lab core was on the 1st floor but was closed for lunch 1 hour. So I have to take time to schedule another day elsewhere. Not convenient for the patient. Being there work is based on that service i anticipated it to be more inclusive like Kelsey Seybold and others in the med center.

I took my adult daughter to see him and he was very rude and arrogant. It seemed like he didn’t want to take the time to explain about what was going on with her health. He rushed us out of there and we decided he never to go see him again.

Does not care about his patients just their money. Saw him in 2016 if he had taken the time to run more test instead of just disregarding me he would have found out I had Hashimoto's Disease. Because of him I waited 2 years until I felt so horrible mentally and physically to be tested and treated by two great doctors. Would not recommend him at all to anyone

Drove for several hours for a 2nd opinion to Dr. Elhaj about my hashimoto's just for the dr to do a quick ultrasound and then told me I didn't need to be on medicine and I just had a fat neck. I went from 140 to over 200 lbs in 4 Months, was lethargic/tired, depressed, no appetite, losing hair, etc... was not happy with the dr or my visit.

Dr. Elhaj is the finest physician I have ever had. He always takes adequate time with me on my follow-up visits after successfully treating my thyroid cancer.
