I thought Dr. Eligator listened to me carefully and seemed to care about the main issues concerning me. I did not really feel like my concerns about the side effects of medications were taken seriously or believed, and I worry about that in future visits if/when we decide on different medications.
good physician. excellent empathetic communicator.
Dr. Eligator was a fantastic doctor to see and I will definitely be going back to her for future appointments. I have had bad experiences with gynecologists, but she put me at ease and it was probably one of the best/easiest Dr. appointments I have ever had. She listened to me and validated my concerns, while also giving her knowledgeable and professional input. What more can you want from a doctor?
She is very informative and answers all my questions and concerns. I personally feel that she truly cares about my health and well being.
Dr Elligator is great at explaining things, the pros and cons of certain methods, and listening to my concerns
Dr. Eligator is my favorite doctor I've ever had.
dr, eligator is an excellent gynecologist
Dr. Eligator was perhaps the kindest, most informative doctor I've ever seen. Going to the OBGYN always scares me and I'm always uncomfortable, but right off the bat she just interacted with me like I was a real human being. She incorporated curiosity about my well-being into what is a regular check-up so well, without ever crossing a boundary. Actively listened to everything I said and helped me change my birth control from a pill that I often forget to something that will work much better in my life. She gave me additional reading material and seconded a recommendation that my GP made for a therapist who she knows as well. All in all, if it weren't a little weird to recommend people you know see the same OBGYN, I'd be singing her praises to everyone I know. I can't recommend her enough or speak highly enough of how I was treated, validated, and cared for as a human being.
Dr. Eligator is fantastic. Very glad to have found her to be my gyne!
Dr. Eligator is excellent. She is very conversational and makes me feel at ease during my appointments. She also carefully listens to my health concerns and answers my questions in a thorough and understandable way.
Dr. Eligator is kind, compassionate, smart and funny. I typically hate going to see the OB but I like Dr. Eligator so much that when it's her, I don't mind. She goes above and beyond what I expect from a doctor, and I trust her completely. Dana is also completely wonderful -- she's one of the best physician's assistants / nurses I've ever met.
Dr. Eligator is great. She takes her time to explain and listen, and will not push you to do anything you might not want.
I was very pleased with Dana & Dr. Eligator. I was really, really nervous and they created an environment that allowed me to feel safe. I could not be happier with my experience.
She is an excellent doctor! You all are lucky to have her on staff. She is an amazing resource for women!
This was my first time meeting Nancy Eligator. She was very helpful and knowledgable. I appreciate her being a part of the Gen Internal Medicine team.

Dr. Eligater is a wonderful dream and a true gift to the profession on Gynecology. She is knowledgeable, kind, and caring. I would recommend her to anyone needing an OBGYN. In addition, her bold fashion choices and spec-tacular (pun intended) glasses are the icing on the cake!

Dr. Elligator provides consistently phenomenal care! I couldn't be happier with her as a physician. I am so pleased that I found her.
Excellent care, responsive, non judgmental.
she was condescending and didn't listen to me or my concerns my last visit. we had a bit of a show down because of this. when it seemed I would not budge on what she wanted for me as far as surgery she just dismissed me. told me to go ahead and leave the office. This most recent visit she seemed to be better but it seemed because of how bad the last visit was considering I hadn't followed back up since.
Love Dr. Eligator. She's very thorough and genuinely cares about me and well being.

Dr Eligator is very easy to talk with. she genuinely cares about my health. during the visit she noticed I had gained 10 pounds since the last visit. We discussed the heath implications. She encouraged me to make different food choices. I left feeling empowered to make changes.
dr elligator is horrible. I will never see her again and am recommending those patients of hers that I know to find someone else.

Dr. Eligator sets a VERY high bar for providers. She is hands down the best provider I've ever seen. I have been going to Dr. Eligator for about 3 years, and she is consistently incredible. After each visit with her I become more and more thankful for finding someone who shows incredible professionalism, and life changing compassion. I could not think more highly of her or the care she provides--absolutely top notch.
Dr. Nancy was kind, attentive, and respectful to my daughter and me. She even saw when my daughter was about to faint, made she she got some juice and crackers and reassured her. She took time to talk over options with us, made sure we understood those options, and came to mutual agreement over care. I couldn't be more pleased.

I am extremely satisfied with both my PCP (Dr. Amar Kohli, MD) and my Gynecologist (Dr. Nancy R. Eligator, MD), more than any other doctors I've ever had!! They both really listen to me and do everything they can to take good care of me.
Told me good information about non-prescription items I'd been using and a better substitute.

I love working with Dr. Eligator. If she ever was to leave, I would be really upset. She is very personable, caring, warm, and open. She is everything I would want in an OBGYN and I am so happy I was recommended to her care by my PCP, Dr. Thiel.
