I am currently 28 weeks and haven't had an ultrasound of my baby in almost 3 months. Every time I go my appointment gets either rescheduled or canceled. I have no idea what my baby looks like, weighs, or really if there is anything wrong with her. I have not had an anatomy scan. This is my first baby and my OB experience has been horrible thus far.

One of the BEST Ob/gyn in the area! I’ve also worked in the OR with him for 12+ years, and his surgical skills are also fantastic. He delivered 4/5 of my babies. 2 sections, 2 vbacs. He’s also done two other major surgeries on me. He is extremely intelligent, though he likes to act like he’s not, lol. But ask him a detailed question and listen up.

Dr. Elias is by far the best doctor! He explains everything thoroughly, he does all his own ultrasounds, he listens well and is very kind and compassionate. He is experienced, knowledgeable, and will be completely honest with you. He’s straightforward and has a sense of humor which takes away the anxiety/awkwardness of going to the OBGYN. His staff is top notch and he accepts almost every insurance. All around great doctor!!

If you want a csection, this is the dr for you! He is extremely rushy in the delivery room, demands things and tries to flirt to sweet talk you into those demands. I was in the delivery room with a friend and she only pushed twice before he took out the forceps and tore her in 5 different places.

Not a patient, but called to see if he was accepting new patients and Lacy so lovingly stated that Dr. Elias has to review your medical history and someone would call you and let you know if he would take you or not. She didn't ask what kind of insurance I had or nothing. She wanted me to send over my last pap smear and they would go from there. Didn't care whether or not I had insurance. I would never and I mean never want to deal with a doctor nor staff of that sort. I'll take my body and insurance elsewhere. If he is not a reflection of his staff then he needs to get a better person to run his office. I have never in my life heard of a doctor needing to review your medical history prior to even considering you as a patient.

I honestly can’t say how awesome Dr. Elias is. He is compassionate and very knowledgeable. I would ask a million questions and he would take his time to make sure to answer all of them. He was straight to the point with things concerning my pregnancy. His staff is always pleasant and accommodating. His office may be busy but it’s always clean. Highly recommend!

Dr. Elias has a wonderful bedside manner. He has a very warming spirit when he walks into the room. He delivered my last child and it was a success. I moved away, and when I returned I made sure to make an appointment to continue to see him as my GYN.

I would 100% recommend seeing him! He is the funniest man! He will tell you all your information while making you smile. He is vertical concerned about his patients and does everything HIMSELF! He doesn't have have an ultrasound techs he does it himself. He will make you very comfortable when you may feel uncomfortable. (For example getting cervics checked) 100% recommend him!

Went yesterday for my first time and absolutely love Dr. Elias. He was very kind and genuine. He explained things in detailed and also had a listening ear. Heard everything I said and was absolutely on board with my plans. The staff was great and friendly and the wait time was 30 min or so. I'm so excited to have a Dr. that takes the time to listen and carefully try to explain himself.
