This doctor knows what he's doing. I'm young, freaked out because my heart's acting up, and he and the whole staff made me feel comfortable. He was energetic, get-to-the-point, let's-get-you-fixed-ASAP, and ordered me 3 tests right off thebat. He's kinda like a gym instructor but for getting you healthy, same type of WE CAN DO THIS energy. Sometimes doctors and other staff seem bored or like they're just doing their jobs, this crew seemed 100% genuinely interested in fixing me.I was also super impressed by the facility, it was really nice and modern. No 10 year old Highlights magazines or dusty floral printed chairs. He even had some touchscreens in the office to show me diagrams and what he's looking for in my heart. We'll see what happens next!

Dr. Elder has a friendly and accommodating staff. I was made to feel very comfortable and welcome. Most importantly, I especially appreciate the set-up of his facility; all testing is handled there - on-site!! Then, the staff scheduled thetesting and follow-up around what was convenient for me. As a new patient, I am very pleased with my choice thanks to ZocDoc! I would highly recommend this physician to anyone in need of a Cardiac physician!
