I went to Dr. Elam office but I saw Bryan he was very helpful. He found a large mass in my throat I had know idea was there. He sent me for an ultra sound then a needle biopsy. The results came back where I need to have the mass removed and maybe my thyroid. I called the office everyday waiting for the results to come back, and Annabel was wonderful. She kept me informed and stayed on the Dr. to call me back. I am waiting for the dr. to schedule surgery. The office staff was wonderful and so is Bryan so I am banking on Dr. Elam being the best. I will update after my surgery.
