If you need to follow up with him by phone, forget about it. In my case, he asked me to call him back if there was an issue with the prescription. I’ve called 4 times over the last 2 weeks. Still have not spoken to Dr. Elterman. His staff called back once but the interaction was a complete waste of time. I’m sure he’s very competent, but I need someone who does what they say.

Told him what was going on and he prescribed what I had already told him didn’t work previously. Took another test and he said everything was fine and wouldn’t take time for a call to discuss the on going symptoms and other options. Waste of time and money.

Although I had to wait a bit to see Dr. Elterman I was very pleased with the amount and quality of time he spent with me. He appears to have found a simple solution to an on-going medical problem I was encountering by recommending new equipment, and he patiently explained and demonstrated how to use it properly.

Dr Elterman is soft-spoken and seems willing to listen to his patients. However, the office staff he has hired are absolutely terrible and pathetic in their interaction with patients. Requesting them that the patient wants to speak with the doctor will result in replies like “the doctor is busy” and “he will call back” (I have yet to see a call back). They will attempt to have you fill your prescription at their private practice at inflated rates. They’ll also attempt to charge you for the act of reaching out to insurance for approval regarding specific medication. In short, these staff members are despicable con artists and it’s avoid this place like the plague. P.S. it’s little wonder that you’ll always be able to find an appointment at this place whereas other doctors and practices require appointments to be scheduled days or weeks in advance. When money is the only goal and not patient satisfaction, few patients will want to come.

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 to show 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't acknowledge 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.
