My procedure was a little different from most of the surgery that Dr Elist usually performs but he did an excellent job and he staff was wonderful to me. I live in Chicago so i was concerned about followup but i had no issues. Thank you Dr Elist for treating me so special and charging me so little.

I'd like to offer a few words of praise. You are an amazing physician, but one of your employees, Josh, is also a real asset to your business. He's all the things a patient wants in an emotionally tough situation like mine was: he's professional, knowledgeable, intuitive, a good listener, sympathetic, thoughtful, and understanding. Consequently, one of my goals is to always take the time to offer words of appreciation to acknowledge a job well done.

My experience with Dr. Elist and his staff had been a pleasure. They have kindly answered all my questions and have made me very comfortable throughout my stay. I was coming from Germany and everything was new to me. They hired a tour guide for me and I enjoyed every minute of my trip.
