Patient's Mother

As a (then) first-time mom I didn't realize there were such things as 'Pediatric Specialists' so when my son's Pediatrician referred him to an Opthalmologist for a wandering eye I just booked a regular doctor who accepted our insurance. After almost 2 years of seeing this dr and coming no closer to a solution I came to find Dr. Elliot who, in the first visit, was able to properly diagnosis my son's eye condition. He explained what was needed and small risks involved. We scheduled surgery, which corrected the problem and haven't had an issue since! Thank you Dr. Elliot for helping our son!

Dr. Elliott

Dr. Elliott is a awesome physician. He really knows how to connect with teenagers and small kids. Probably because he is so young.

Two Stars

Dr. Elliot did seem pretty thorough in examing my 2 year old daughter, but he was not forthcoming at all in explaining the tests/exam he was performing. He was pleasant but honestly doesn't seem all that great with kids. He is soft spoken and seems to himself which is not a plus in my opinion when dealing with children in this setting. Also, I don't believe the prescription he provided is correct. I am returning to see him to have my child reevaluated. I orginally asked for an appt. with Bruce Hess but apparented he was booked so they sent me to Dr. Elliot without informing me first.

Very disappointed

Dr Eliott seemed nice enough but seemed to have no patience when it came to my 18 month old daughter being scared. Was very offended by his choice of words when calming her down. WILL NOT be willing to see him again or refer anyone.
