Very thorough, caring and professional with a great staff. Wait times are minimal. Your concerns and privacy are the if upmost importance. I have been going to Dr. McElya for years and have never had a bad experience. I would recommend his practice to anyone.

He really made an effort to explain and to make sure I understood the current and future actions taken to alleviate the issue. He was also energetic and in a very good mood, which, being a doctor's office, makes you feel more relaxed.

Dr. McElya was very friendly. I only waited a little over 30 minutes to see him, which was a big improvement from the last time I went to Neighborhood Med. Center. Last time I went I also had set an appointment and waited 1 hour and 45 minutes. So 30+ minutes was nice.

Excellent quality care. The wait time/"overall" experience and quality of care are seperate measurements. This question is irrelevant. Maybe the wait time can be correlated with patients' satisfaction with care

Very pleased as always. Wait time for my appointment was less than 5 minutes from arrival to being seen. Staff was professional and quick. The doctor was knowledgeable and answered all of my questions.

I made an appointment with the office previously and waited so long to be seen I had to leave (an hour past my appointment time had passed before I left). I had already paid at the front desks request or I wouldn't have returned. However, I made another appointment since they already had my money. This time was no different. I was in the waiting room well past my appointment time and then waited in the Dr. room for a very long time as well. Definitely wouldn't recommend or return due to lack of timeliness nor concern for time.

Not crazy about the Dr who saw me today. He seemed unprofessional and not at all as friendly as the others I have seen at this office. Hope I don't have to see him next visit.

Everything was great, however from the time I checked in to fill out my new patient forms to the time I checked out, I was at the officer for 2 hours. I hope that will not be a regular occurrence with each of my visits.

Waiting time has increased over the years... Wait time has went from 30 minutes to 1 hour wait before being called to the back!!! Another 1 1/2 hours before you are seen by a Doctor!!! Overall waiting time is RIDICULOUS! however, doctors and staff are very nice and professional.

Wait time was awful. Appointment scheduled for 11:45. Showed up to the office at 11:30. Did not get called out of waiting room until 12:30. Just for a simple prescription re-fill.

It took well over an hour to see someone. I just don't really have that long to wait. They blamed it on a large number of walk-ins. As far as I'm concerned, appointments should come first. Otherwise, why am I making appointments?

40 year old male professional - good general health and average fitness Dr McElya is perfect for me. He is high energy and a straight shooter, which might not be for everyone. He is also pleasant and genuine. He listens and discusses any and all options for care including lifestyle and whole health options, which I appreciate. The staff is efficient, helpful, and perfectly friendly. If you need your doc to coddle you, he might not be your guy, but if you're serious about being healthy and appreciate a practical approach, I highly recommend Dr McElya.

I felt that Dr. McElya's bedside manner is lacking significantly. It is clear that Dr. McElya is in practice to benefit his revunue rather than deliver quality medical care to his patients. It is sad for another professional such as myself to see that the medical field is still saturated with professionals who do not uphold the benefit and satisfaction of the patient. Very disappointing.

Love this doctor! Has very flexible hours and easy to get an appointment but they charge like a primary care not an urgent care so my health insurance covers more of the bill. Dr McElya is also extremely friendly and runs a very efficient office they get you in and out. His staff and nurses are all very nice.
