i was really looking forward to seeing dr. elfaki because of all the good reviews. pros: the office was nice. the waiting area had allot of things to keep the kids entertained. clean office. cons: staff was not that friendly. reallydepended on their mood at the moment. i was never really greeted when i came in. dr. didnt seem that thorough with her exams. seemed like she had allot going on. overbooked! the pediatrician on the side of her left the office so she became overbooked. you could barely get an appt. i just went back to my other doctor.

Our visit with Dr. Elfaki was excellent. She was very nice, easy to talk to and addressed all of my concerns. The office was very clean and she was so sweet to my daughter. You can tell that she really enjoyswhat she does. We would definitely reccomend her. The front office staff was very nice as well. Its somewhat difficult to get them over the phone and there was a two week wait to schedule an appointment however I believe that this is becaue she is in high demand. We are very happy with Dr. Elfaki.

The service was satisfactory. Dr. Selfaki was engaging but I was concerned she did evaluated my child based on an incorrect age. The forms were correctly filled but her staff wrote down a wrong date of birth. I must say thatI was not surprised because the nurse was quite hasty and seemed rather disinterested. I assumed she was having a bad day but it's important to keep the personal away from the professional.

Dr Elfaki was absolutely amazing! the office was very nice and the staff were very friendly! She made sure to ask if i had any questions and i didnt feel rushed out of her office. i have a set of twinsand have gone to three different pediatricians in the east orlando area and i must say this is by-far the best one i have been to!! the wait time was minimal, in fact i was in the office before i finished filling out the new patient forms, and everyone was genuinely friendly and wore a smile! highly reccomended!!!

Like the Dr but it would be nice if she follows up after ordering test, I have to call the office to find out the results (good or bad) otherwise I would not realize what is going on with my child unless I call or book another appointment.
