Specialties

Dr. Heather L Elias has the following 2 specialties

  • Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism
  • Hospitalist

    Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
    Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
    They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

A very good experience

Dr Elias is very professional and thorough and at the same time, caring and reassuring. She answered my questions and calmed any fears I might have had. I went away feeling very good about the visit. She was also very quick to follow up with test results. I highly recommend her to anyone needing to see an endocrinologist.

Great Doc, but can't see in a timely manner

Dr. Elias is a thoughtful and thorough doctor, very knowlegeable in her field. She listens, which is so very important. She also treats her patients with respect, a quality lacking in many physicians these days. But, regretably, the most memorable piece of my association with Dr. Elias is how difficult it is to get an appointment. The latter is not her fault, but rather that of the Endocrinology Clinic at the UMass Med Center where she practices. If one misses an appointment regardless of reason - snow storm, accident, illness, etc., it is a minimum of three months before another appointment is available. Very unfortunate.

Outstanding !

Dr Elias and her office are outstanding in all aspects of care and have surpassed my admittedly high expectations concerning doctors. I have and will continue to strongly recommend them.
