She is amazing, makes me feel so comfortable every visit. She is compassionate and checks on other things in life not just what I'm there for. One thing that I know to be true at every visit with her after we are done she will lift you up and get you feeling great and smiling before leaving. This is great because you leave happier than you thought, especially if you get some not so good news.

I usually go to the St. Charles location and wait for a very long period of time and typically do not have a great experience. I went to Aurora due to scheduling conflicts, and I will be going to this location going forward. The staff was wonderful and friendly and I was shocked at how quickly I was in-and-out, while still completing a thorough visit.

I thoroughly trust and have a great relationship with Dr. Elgar. However, I am recently less satisfied with the scheduling process at the reception desk. At my most recent appointment yesterday on 1-14-19, I arrived at my assumed scheduled time, to be told there was no appointment in the system that day for me. The office staff accommodated my need and I was able to see another doctor. Before leaving I requested a list of upcoming appointments to which I found another error in appointment times for the next weeks that I had to reconcile. I'm concerned that my appointments will be confused at another time, and I want to be able to rely on this office.

I had some health concerns which I felt deserved more urgent attention, but was initially offered an appointment nearly one month away. I had to be very aggressive in order to get an appointment in about two weeks from my call. Once in the office, Doctor Elgar was very helpful. She listened as I explained what my medicinal issue was, and then ordered some lab work and an US to narrow down the cause. She wanted the US done within the week and advocated for me when the scheduler offered a date that was 10 days out. She got me back to back appointments with US and then her. She was able to read the US immediately and offer up two possible interventions. After a discussion, we decided on the medical/surgical procedure. I had to wait almost one month for a procedure date, which was not ideal for me personally. But at the hospital, Dr. Elgar was efficient. She spoke to both me and my husband after the procedure. I am very pleased with her as my physician.
