    I really think it is important to recognize the effort Dr Elchaar is putting into helping me navigate a complex pregnancy in the current Coronavirus crisis. She has been going above and beyond to make sure all my questions and process explained clearly and answers all my questions no matter how long it takes. She clearly is putting all of her patients needs above everything. Thank you for all the work you are doing during this time.
