Dr. Ellen R Elias has the following 4 specialties

  • Medical Genetics

    Geneticists are doctors with expertise in genetic or hereditary disorders. Many of the diseases we get are inherited, or passed on through the genes of our biological parents. These specialists study the biology behind a genetic disorder's origin, the traits that it presents in a patient and its pathway. This allows them to diagnose and treat each illness effectively.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Engineers Daughter

Overall experience was poor, our daughter was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition and Dr. Elias seemed to know a lot about genetics. However the research she had done previously has not translated to the human element at all. We went in for a routine checkup (we thought) and were informed we couldn't leave the hospital because our daughters life was in jeapardy due to aspiration. she told us we had to have an NG tube put in immediately and no feeding by mouth. After the birth, which was very traumatic we were already cautious of everything with our daughter and this was another hit that had our daughters life hanging in the balance, or so it seemed. Long story short there were other options - including watching what happened with our daughter. It being our first child we weren't sure and trusted what this lady told us. We now wish we hadn't and our questions to the doctor were not explained as well as they should have and the options were not explained as well as they should have been. This stays with me every single day and every time i pick up my daughter. This lady should not be seeing patients they should put her back in the research center.
