Ratings for Dr. Valerie A. Elener
No beside manner. Very cold & unprofessional. She made every visit extremely awkward. My fiancé was seeing her as a new patient & because he was honest & put on his paper work that he was in recovery for drug addiction she told him that she refused to see him as a patient & when he asked her why she screamed at him to get out of her office. One of her staff members called me shortly after we left the office & apologized on her behalf. She stated that the doctor discriminated against those with past or current drug problems & will not allow them in her office. I never went back to her office again.
I'm really not a picky person, but in my opinion this is not a very good doctor. Every time I'd try to address a problem with her she'd basically just blow it off and say we'd worry about that another time. It was like she just didn't want to deal with it, like she just wanted to do the absolute minimum amount of work possible. Very unhelpful. I feel like pretty much every visit was a waste of time. I'm looking for a new doctor right now!
I have been to a lot of doctors’ offices over the years due to my chronic stomach pain and GI issues. But Dr. Elener’s office is by far the most kept. The girls that work there are the sweetest ever and 9 times out of 10 they will find a way to squeeze you in for an appointment the same day you call. Like I said, the office is kept neat and tidy, the girls are so helpful and sweet and the doc seems to be very down to earth too! I’m very happy I switched my family doctor to Dr. Elener. I like that she chit-chats with me and really shows an interest in my life, not only my health. A++++ for these ladies!! I highly recommend Dr. Elener to all my friends and family!
Rude, wont look you in the eye.Never said hello. Told me theres nothing that can be done about hormone imbalance. I was a new patient, she asked no question unless i prompted her to ask me something.Stared at computer monitor and said nothing. Refused to address any of my concerns.Walked out of office without a word. Is extremely overweight and just very unproffesional looking.
Not a very nice woman, is bitter about being overweight and takes it out on her overweight patients, even telling me stories about how thin she was in college. I had an old injury from a broken ankle, she insisted it was just strain on my joint from being fat (until I went to a specialist and we saw the fractures). She is rough and inconsiderate with pap smears. She talks down to you. She prescribed my father an incorrect medicine, and when he got sick from it and confronted her, she refused to see our family as patients any longer. NOT a good doctor at all... dangerous too. Wondering if I'll be infertile from the pills she put me on.
