No mater what is wrong with you, this guy will tell you to go home and gargle with some nice salty water. It's become a running joke in our family, so much so that my 14 year old son said before he came into the exam room that that is exactly what he would say. After a rudimentary exam, he said to my son, "Go home and gargle with some nice salty water". My son and I both looked at each other and laughed. This guy is a joke!

I can agree with all the other commenters when saying this is the worst Doctor I've ever had to deal with. I was recently diagnosed with an ovarian tumour and am in need of an MRI or CT and this man refused to listen to me. When trying to explain my situation he told me to "stop arguing". He scribbled illegibly on a blood test sheet and shooed me out the door. The next day I went to the blood testing clinic and the nurses could not even read his name on the sheet.

On arrival of Dr. Elli to the one-on-one room, from beginning to end, the doctor was bar none the worst I have ever experienced. He was openly rude, dismissive, insulting, abrasive, challenging, stubborn, unsympathetic, accusing, and ignored every word I spoke, every example I tried to give, cut me off and made fun of me and my pain. I have examples of the worst parts, but I couldn't fit nearly all of my bad experience in the number of characters permitted. included examples of why I wouldn't just caution against seeing this doctor, but why I also would highly recommend the clinic end all connections to him as well. I said "I think I may have an ear infection" to which he gave an irritated look and said "Don't think, that's not for you to decide." I explained that I have chronic ear infections, and that my family doctor has explained the symptoms and solutions to me very carefully, and having had nearly a dozen infections in the last 3 years I feel that I can quite reasonably say that, at least as a guess. He said "Well you're wrong, it's not an ear infection. It's a nose and throat infection" He then gave me a pamphlet that explained how to use salt solution to clean my nose and throat. That's it. I asked for antibiotics and maybe something to dull the pain, and he didn't like that much, saying "If you get infections so much you are doing something wrong, and this will help you learn how to do things right." I tried his prescribed antibiotics and now, days later, my ears have gotten so bad that a second trip to another doctor resulted in them saying what I was given would never have helped and now my ears are much worse. The better doctor then gave me a prescription which has helped me heal.

I am a nurse and will be reporting this physician. My daughter is visiting here and dropped in clinic as she thought she had a UTI .. Test showed negative but made no other suggestions as to what might be causing her pain! She asked for just a couple of Ativan for her long flight home as she is claustrophobic and he said no. She asked him what he thought would be good to take then and he said alcohol ! Just drink! She said I don't drink and he said Sorry! Unbelievable! Never in my 30 years nursing have I encountered this !

I brought my 6 year old to the walk in clinic today. We have a family doctor, but because my son already has quite the history of strep and high, hard to treat fevers I believed that early detection would certainly benefit him. Upon Dr Elli's entrance into the exam room I began to introduce my son. He silenced me with his hand and no eye contact. He proceeded to tell my child that he needed to explain why he was there, going so far as saying "are you a big boy or a baby". I was cut off every time that I spoke. When I attempted to explain that my child had had numerous bouts of strep this year alone he told me that his prior infections were not likely to have been strep. When I attempted to tell Dr Elli that I was concerned that my child may again have strep, he said to my child "your mother doesn't know if you have strep, she isn't a doctor.". The ignorance and disrespect continued for our 3 minute visit. Granted, I am indeed not a physician. I am not, however, stupid. Nor do I, or any other patient/guardian, deserve such rude treatment.

He laughed at me when I told him I was having stomach pain from taking naproxen. When I told him I did as my rheumatologist said and took it with food, he laughed even harder and told me "not enough food, who cares about losing weight".... I am 5'4, 130lbs, and said nothing to him about losing weight! I was concerned about the unbearable stomach pains and the possibility of an ulcer and he wouldn't stop laughing at me long enough to hear my symptoms. He told me the stomach pain would go away eventually... that was it! Less than a 60 second conversation. He is the most ignorant, careless Doctor I could possibly imagine!!!

I went to this doctor with severe dizziness and chest pain. He looked in my ears and nose and said I had congestion in my nose and to gargle salt water. I told him I wasn't sick like that I was scared because of the dizziness. He handed me a piece of paper that also said to gargle salt water and said bye bye. Very rude man. Did not listen to a word I said. I'm still shocked over the experience. The whole interaction lasted less than a minute. Complete waste of time and government money.
