My 6 month old son needed a circumcision revision and Dr. Elmore was so reassuring and professional. He explained everything in a very calm manner and did a fantastic job with my son.

This location is further to drive than the Stockbridge location, but my son Joshua wanted to see the same doctor that he saw two years ago, Dr Elmore. So the drive was worth him being comfortable with the doctor.

Charlie felt much better seeing Dr. Elmore, vs. Dr. Shurz. Honestly, every aspect of his care with handled with great dignity and respect. Dr. Elmore listened to Charlie and my husband during the visit, and when they came home, they had a complete understanding of next steps necessary, as well as felt like Dr. Elmore listened to them. I am grateful for such a positive experience. Thank you to the office manager that allowed for the second opinion within the office.

Dr. Elmore was very thorough with his exam. He explained everything in detail and answered all concerning questions. He referred us to Children's for an ultrasound but provided a cell number to call him when it was completed for further diagnosis. He was very prompt and I was pleased with his care and would recommend him to others.

Love how attentive and courteous the office staff and doctor are. During a pandemic, I think it's important not to wait in small waiting rooms and we didn't wait long at all. It was a great experience... and I'm hoping all of my son's appointments go this smoothly with his other doctors.

Dr. Elmore put my mind at ease. He was very gentle even though my son was crying his butt off and he took his time to explain and answer my questions. When it was time for him to check on my son I was breastfeeding and he told me not to rush he will come back. Everyone at that office got a 10/10 for customer service in my book. Good job guys and thank you all for being here
