Ratings for Dr. Thomas W. Ela
My dad is a patient of Dr. Ela and I cannot express my gratitude towards him and his staff. My dad is 84 years old and has dementia. Dr. Ela is the by far the best doctor. He is extremely patient and never makes you feel dumb or rushed with all the questions. He really goes way over and beyond for his patients and makes sure that his patient are taken care of. He is so compassionate. Always, calls me back when I leave a message and even has a doctor on call when he goes on vacation. He has the best staff ( Jennifer) always helps me find the best doctors for my dad when he needs to be referred to a specialist. You will not regret it!!!!!

After 4 long years and several tests with other doctors Dr. Ela was able to give me a diagnosis for my illness after one visit. He even suggested I go to another teaching institute for confirmation as it is a very debilitating disease. Which I did and his diagnosis was confirmed. Very patient and knowledgeable doctor I would recommend him to my family or friends
He is exptremely knowledgeeable, patience. Never cut you short or show you to the door. Always answer your concerns/questions. My husband has been seeing him for the last 8 years and we have no complaint but appreciation. I will recommend him to any of my friends and relatives.
Very disappointing. I heard nothing but rave reviews about him. He was friendly enough, adn his staff was very nice. I had heard he was very patient. With me he was ALWAYS hurried, showing me out before I could ask more than two questions. He did a neurological exam (normally takes about an hour) that lasted about TWO MINUTES! No exaggeration. He usually told me NOTHING about what was going on: what he thought, what he was checking for, why I was doing tests, the results, etc. I usually left his office more confused than I went in. Then while my symptoms were getting more severe, and a test revealed another most likely neurological symptom, he told me I was fine, there was nothing else he could do and if I didn't like it, to go see someone else. I found out later he hadn't done even half of the helpful tests he could have. It almost seems like he just didn't want any more patients.
