I went to see Dr. Elliott for a follow up visit after a few weeks had passed since injuring my wrist. I was mostly seeking confirmation that it was healing and advice on how I could help the pain and functionality improve. I feel that Dr. Elliott provided and addressed both of these things. He took additional x-rays, including new views that were not addressed previously, and went over the results with me. He also provided me with some at home exercises that I could do. I appreciated his attentive and honest assessment of the situation and explanation of future healing and expectations.

I visited with an irritation on my left hand. Dr. Elliot was extremely polite, timely, and matter of fact. He was honest in telling me that my cyst was not an emergency and didn't need surgery. It was a choice I had, but not something he felt as crucial. I appreciate knowing that it wasn't necessary to spend the money. He also has a sense of humor which is nice in a doctor, especially if you're seeing them for pain. I would recommend Dr Elliot to anyone!

Dr. Elliott provided an incredible experience from start to finish. I fell down the steps and ended up with a Distal Radius Fx. He communicated the entire process and explained everything so I could understand what it took to recover properly and return to normal life. My wrist feels great and I couldn’t be more satisfied. He exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend him on all levels of care!

He was such a good doctor! He removed a bone cyst in my finger and it healed wonderful! He's super friendly and I'd go to him again.

Dr. Elliott is phenomenal! My daughter fractured her wrist and I took her to the urgent care for treatment. The treatment she received was exceptional! The fracture was pretty bad and Dr. Elliott and his PA, Sarah, did an amazing job fixing her arm! She had surgery in the ASC, which was an amazing experience, as well. Dr. Elliott even called us personally the day after surgery to make sure everything was going well. I would definitely recommend Dr. Elliott and his team for orthopedic care.

Dr. Elliott has been treating me for injury to my right wrist due to fall on ice that resulted in 2 torn ligaments in my wrist. I have to say that being on receiving end of his excellent patient care has been awesome! He performed surgery on my wrist 6/23/16 & it's feeling great already. Not only being his patient myself, but working with Dr Elliott for over a year, I knew I was in great hands! On behalf of myself & all of his many patients, thank you! You are an awesome asset to OSS!

Dr Elliott is a very compassionate surgeon. He explained in detail the extent of the injury and prognosis for my husband’s injury. He took the time to make sure that we understood all that was involved . His dynamic personality shows through and made a trying experience for us more bearable. He has a God-given talent . We were certainly blessed to have had him. A surgery that was originally to be around 2 hours in length turned out to be 41/2 hours in duration. He would periodically send word .
