Competent physician, organized environment, knowledgable staff

Dr. Elnicki is the consummate professional. UPMC is fortunate to have Dr. Elnicki on staff. He is totally trustworthy.

June 13, 2018

The office was very busy and running late and I made a friendly comment regarding this to the nurse. She responded equally friendly that the doctors in this practice are the best and everyone wants to see them. I agree.

June 12, 2018

My care provider is thorough and compassionate, a very nice balance in care.

good visit

Dr. Elnicki is very thorough. Although I had an appointment with him after my back surgery in 2005, he was not my regular PCP. I have only recently been with his practice since Nov., 2017. I had two incidents of cardiac arrest on 2/14/ & 2/15, 2018, so we are still in the midst of getting my blood pressure under control with several meds. I apparently was allergic to one of the first medicines that I tried, Labetalol. I am in good physical shape and faithfully exercise. My blood pressure (genetic in my mother's family) is my main issure, but I am doing well at this point--almost down to the point we both want it.

Dr. Elnicki is superb and has been my primary care physician for many years. He always goes the "extra mile" for me whenever any questions or "snags" arise regarding health care.

May 16, 2018

As usual.I had a very positive visit with Dr. Elnicki. He is attentive, a good listener, and always spends a generous amount of time discussing my health and his treatment. He goes to great length to answer all of my questions and explain his treatment protocol in great detail.

He is great. We have a fairly long history so he knows me quite well.
