They confirmed the appointment the night before. The receptionist calls me 30 minutes before the appointment while I was driving and asked for my information, my card number, etc.. I arrive there and had to wait 10+ minutes for someone toshow up and then she tells me simply "Oh.. we stopped taking your insurance in May" .

Great physician and very attentive to needs. However, will knock off a star for wait time and customer service of one of the secretaries. One of them, the one without the russian accent, brunette with glasses, was very rude. She doesn'tacknowledge you or say anything. Lets you just stand there while she is not even busy just sitting there. The other secretary is very friendly and helpful though.

I did not feel any sort of doctor-patient relationship with this doctor. I was scared and needed things to be explained to me and what my options were. He told me that I only had one option and did nothing tocomfort a clearly anxious patient. He is knowledgable but not a caring doctor. The office does not know what is going on and will give you incorrect information regarding referrals, medications and appointments. Wait time was nearly two hours. I had to go to the office staff three times over the course of two hours asking where this doctor was. I ended up switching to another Urologist. And it turns out that I had options, not just what this doctor had claimed.

Im a doctor and this time I became the patient. I chose Dr Elterman based on credentials and reviews on this website. I'm not sure if he was aware that I was a doctor since I never told him on ourconversation, but his bedside manners were excellent and he was thorough on his assessment. I would recommend him and definitely visiting again I ever need a consultation.

Dr. Elterman was very kind, warm and informative. He was thorough and very patient while explaining the details pertaining to my visit. I would recommend him however, the desk staff was not too clear on directions regarding samples needed andwait time. Not sure if it was a hectic day at the office with more patients than usual but overall I would recommend him.
