We saw Dr. Elder at Children's Hospital of Michigan. I felt very confident that his diagnosis and prognosis of our daughter's condition was right on. I would highly recommend him. His credentials are outstanding.

Wonderful Dr.

Dr. Elder took time with me discussing my daughter's kidney reflux. He was wise and patient. I saw him 18 months ago and I won't forget his excellent bedside manner.
