Dr. Elango was very professional and patient with me. She took a detailed family history and was able to address allmy concerns. She ordered the necessary tests that I need to help combat my family history. Her front desk staff was highly professional along with nursing staff. I have not received such good care in quite a long time. She has restored my faith in doctors. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an efficient, caring and knowledgeable medical doctor.

She was okay. Went a bit too fast for my liking especially since it was my first time there. Might want to slow down next time and explain things especially for a first time patient at your establishment. Kind of bummed about the change for their office as well might need to find a new PCP.

Dr. Elango is a wonderful doctor. She is incredibly thorough and takes the time to listen and explain everything to you. I feel like she also remembers my personal details but will also follow-up and review your past appointments to make sure she is getting a complete understanding of your health when you visit. Unfortunately I will not be able to switch to her new concierge service and it is breaking my heart because I don't want to find a new PCP but I wish her the best professionally and personally. I would always recommend her to any patient who is able to see her. She really is a great doctor.

I loved everything about my visit with Dr. Elango. She was thorough and helpful, nonjudgmental, caring, and warm. The nonjudgmental piece is really important to me as a woman who is overweight but currently and actively losing weight. She took the time to acknowledge my achievements thus far while also encouraging me to keep going for my health. Other doctors in the past have jumped right into "You need to lose weight" without first asking me what my weight journey has been. Dr. Elango drove home the important of sticking with my weight loss goals while also sounding like she actually cared about all of me. Her front office staff was very helpful and friendly as well. I'll definitely be seeing her as my regular primary care physician.

Overall, Dr Elango is professional. She does rush which is slightly off-putting. Her nurse/front desk attendant is also a touch discourteous.

Extremely over-priced for a regular doctors visit (because I had not met my deductible yet I had to pa out of pocket) - They were cold and didn't really pretend to even care that the amount was freaking me out. They tried to make me get a physical which I didn't need for double what I already had to pay after I told them I had just gotten mine and that was not the reason I went there. They were all about the money and could've cared less about my state. I was excited about this visit because the reviews seemed good but was SO disappointed

I was the first appointment of the day. Filling out standard paper online with ZocDoc prior to visit was helpful. I have been a patient of Dr. Elango for several years. Her attention to your medical history and preventative measures suggested for my personal health, is outstanding. Her staff is very helpful. Dr. Elango is very quick to return your calls within the day.
