Dr. Elmore's bedside manner was all we had hoped for! We had previously taken my son to be seen at their Marietta location but unfortunately the service provided there was not what we had hoped for. We then starting researching for doctors again and this time we paid close attention to reviews and came across Dr. Elmore. Dr. Elmore was very kind. He explained our son's surgery to us, told us what to expect after surgery and even gave us alternative options (which is something we hadn't known about as the previous doctor never mentioned anything to us). I will update this review once we are all set and done with surgery.

Everyone that we came in contact with was EXCELLENT! Dr. Elmore had a great bedside manner and attention to detail. We could not recommend him more. I felt like the office staff, especially Nikki in scheduling went above and beyond for my family. The sincerest THANK YOU to them all.

He is truly THE BEST! He is a fabulous, kind, compassionate, patient and thorough communicator. He has taken the very best and gentlest care of our 16 year old son (and also his very worried and anxious parents). The office staff has also been great. We have to drive quite a bit to see him and it is worth every mile and every minute.
