He was very sweet to my daughter who has autism so the attention span and understanding may be hard for her at times but he tried to reassure she would be ok and what he was going to do. (Scan bladder from deflux procedure follow up) She will definitely continue to see Dr. Elmore in the future if she needs to because he is a great Doctor!

The two times we’ve had to come to this office the staff makes the visits relaxed and comfortable. They are all very nice and friendly and the pediatric side really makes my son very comfortable to talk to them even at the age of three he enjoys going to his doctor visit. Thank you all for your hospitality and your warm hearts it is very appreciated and it does not go unnoticed.

I want to say that Dr. Elmore's scheduler- I believe her name was Valerie, was possibly one of the best phone communications I have ever had with Georgia Urology. I appreciated very much that she listened to my concerns and was willing to help me figure out the best way to handle a difficult scheduling issue. Thank you to Valerie for being amazing and caring about the patients that you deal with. It does not go unnoticed.

Dr. Elmore is a great doctor. Not only do I have great confidence in his knowledge, his ability to explain to me, what is happening, is a great thing. When my son's ultrasound, one week before his scheduled surgery, showed according to the doctor, about a 33% improvement, he said, "If it were my son, I'd wait and see where we are in 6 months". Six months have now become a year, with his most recent appointment. I have total confidence in this doctor, and I would strongly recommend him to everyone. I would be surprised if every review wasn't a 5.

Dr. Elmore is very exceptional, caring, understanding and willing to go over and above his call of duty. I would recommend him to other individuals who are in need of a pediatric urologist. He is definitely a miracle worker. His hands are truly blessed and anointed for the work he does.

Dr. Elmore was everything I could have asked for, especially with my baby being so small and requiring a surgery. He was extremely thorough and made my husband and I feel “at home”. So much that my husband (who never asks questions) was comfortable enough to ask several questions and voice concerns. After having such an unpleasant experience with a previous provider at this practice, Dr. Elmore easily repaired my thoughts about GA Urology and I am looking forward to him taking care of our son.

I was very pleased with how helpful & courteous the staff were even as soon as we stepped off the elevator! The wait time was very minimal. I was nervous about this appointment for my newborn, but I felt at ease after my experience here!
