How was your experience with the doctor?I'm really happy and excited that I switched doctors and visited her first! Her office is lovely, as well as herself and her receptionists. They accommodated me easily when I was running late. And she even talked with me about some really major things that hadn't even crossed my mind regarding weight loss. On top of that, my blood draw was one of the best and quickest I've ever had (it typically takes 3 tries before they can find my veins). Really looking forward to continuing being her patient

How was your experience with the doctor?This is the absolute best annual physical i have ever had. Dr. Elango was incredibly thorough and really listened to my family history, so much so that she recommended genetic testing to ensure I don't carry certain genes. While this might scare others, her preventative approach made me feel empowered and more prepared to take control of my health. She is transitioning into Concierge medicine, I highly recommend those that can afford her to take advantage of that.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Elango is a fantastic doctor. I am really sad that she is transitioning to being concierge only. For those of you who can afford it, I'm sure it would be worth it - she's amazing. Also her office has a really great vibe to it, with nice couches, fun videos to watch (lots of Latin and African music, at a good volume) and great magazines.

How was your experience with the doctor?I had a thorough visit with Dr. Elango for my annual physical. It was my first appointment with her. She was very thorough. Her entire staff was welcoming. The only thing I had an issue with was that she wanted me to see a specialist regarding a refill of one of my prescriptions, when for the past 10 years I have had a PCP fill it in the past. She is also transitioning to a concierge system, which I will be unable to continue with.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Elango is a wonderfully pleasant physician. Her office is nicely decorated and clean. The staff is warm and friendly. I came a little early to fill out paperwork and was seen at exactly the same time my appointment was scheduled. We sat in her office and we talked about my medical history after which my physical was done. This was by far the best physical I've ever had! I didn't feel rushed and she asked a lot of questions. I truly appreciate not feeling rushed! She is amazing and I would recommend her.
