I like Dr Elfar. My problem is with UT Health in Tyler. They keep billing me for services when my SS and supplement cover everything, with no charge to me. My wife has call them many times and all she gets is a V/M and they never return her call. You’d think they’d know how to file for insurance and properly code the services to get paid. I’ve never had billing problems, like this, at any other medical facility before.

My husband needed to see a urologist and was a little nervous. Dr Elfarr was kind,compassionate and very patient. The office had everything in place for the Dr to review. Easy and informative. Very thankful we have him in our small east texas town.

Have seen Dr Elfarr for 10+ years for a chronic condition. He makes recommendations for a treatment plan and is willing to discuss options and alternatives to the plan.
