Chicago, IL |
I saw Dr. Elton a while ago and judging by what I've read he has not changed. He was nasty to me and dismissed my condition. I may have symptoms on the milder side but there is no excuse for discourteous and insensitive behavior, especially coming from a doctor. Please Please get a recommendation from a friend or family member for every doctor you see. If you let scheduling determine who you see you may end up with someone like Dr. Elton. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone.

Ended up in Evanston Hospital because I was too sick to get home (frequent vomiting and diarrhea). Saw Dr Elton, when routine tests came back negative he sent me home with a prescription that hospital and stand alone pharmacies would not fill. He either did or should have known this. Had to stop 4 times on way home. My local gastroenterologist ordered correct tests which with correct meds allowed me to function

I reviewed all of the recommendations about Dr Elton and talked with a number of medical professionals before making my final decision to have Dr Elton proceed with my endoscopy to analyze cysts on my pancreas. I must say that I found all of the negative comments to be inaccurate. I have emailed Dr Elton a number of times with clarification questions and he responds within one day and answers all questions with detailed explanations. His explaination of all aspects pre / post procedure excellent
Chicago, IL |
Dismissive in nature, reluctant to explain (his) opinions, offered and extremely limited follow up or next steps regiment. I can't say I would recommend him as a gastroenterologist. More thought and care should be given to patients unfamiliar with the causes of their ailments....other than the renewal of a prescription.

closed minded, textbook and dismissive bedside manner; diagnostic procedural skills are fine
