Patient Comments (21)
in Apopka, FL |
Since changing doctors and going to Dr. Elston I have been able to get off taking Prednisone every day! He treats me like a person and takes time to listen to what I have to say! His office staff are very nice and helpful. I can't say enough good things about this office! There is quite a long wait time for new patients but it is well worth the wait!
Winter Park, FL |
I went to a few doctors with my initial symptoms. They tried to treat the symptoms, instead of finding the cause. Dr Elston took the time to look at my symptoms, family history, and my personal thoughts. He immediately sent me for the necessary tests and was able to diagnose my specific type of Arthritis. He was able to walk me through the process of getting me on the correct medicine to manage my Arthritis.
in Tavares, FL |
Dr. Elston and his staff have been very considerate of my health. Dr. Elston listens to what I have to say and replies accordingly. He has the knowledge and experience to know what he is talking about.

I have been going to Dr. Elston for 2.5 years. He is very caring. He saved my life. His office staff is wonderful and I couldn't ask for a better arthritis doctor! NS
in Apopka, FL |
I've been seeing Dr. Elston for more than 10 years. I have found him to be very thorough and helpful. His staff is courteous and kind and have always gone above and beyond to help me. My appointments usually run right on time and the office is always clean. I would definitely reccoment Dr. Elston to anyone.
in DeLand, FL |
I would highly recommend Dr. Elston to anyone! He has been my doctor for over ten years and I would not trust my care to anyone else. I have a very difficult to treat RA and Dr. Elston has always taken the time to go over all of my options with me and listens to my opinions. We decide on the medications together. He answers all of my questions (which can be considerable at times). I feel he genuinely cares for me and my comfort. His office manager, Jan, is amazing. She always goes above &beyond

I have been going to Dr. Elston for about 4 years. I really appreciate his kindness and consideration in treating me for a difficult disease. I feel like I have a say in my treatment and even though I have endless questions, Dr Elston answers them fully. Jan, his office manager is amazing. She has booked appointments for me when I am sure I would not have gotten them if I called on my own. She always gives me copies of the reports I want and the perscriptions I need. I would recommend them
in Oviedo, FL |
I have been a patient of Dr. Elston for over 10 years, and I am very happy with his continued treatment of my RA. It is a disease without a cure but under Dr Elston’s care the progression of my RA has been slowed and the symptoms have been calmed. Both Dr Elston and his staff have always been very professional and have gone out of their way to make me feel like they care about me as a person and not just as a patient.
Apopka, FL |
To let you know how great I think Dr. Elston is--I refuse to sign up for any health insurance unless they accept Dr. Elston. I have been going to him for over 15 years. I cannot tell you how much I trust him. I know he keeps up on the latest news on arthritis. Yes some days he maybe a little late getting to me but then I remember the extra time he has taken with me to explain something I had asked about. Referred a friend- she thought he was GREAT. When I call I get a return call ASAP--try him
in Orlando, FL |
I have been seeing Dr. Elston for many years, and have nothing but good things to say about him and his staff. They are professional and courteous, and accommodating of special requests when needed (i.e. urgent/last minute appointments, dealing with insurance, etc.). Most importantly, I trust Dr. Elston's knowledge and skill; he correctly identified and treated my condition (psoriatic arthritis) that went untreated/undiagnosed by other doctors for years! Isn't that what you go to a doctor for?
in Orlando, FL |
I have been seeing Dr Elston for my sacroilitis for about 10 years. After being misdiagnosed by several primary care doctors, Dr. Elson was finally able to give me a correct diagnosis and some much-needed relief. He always listens to my concerns and is thorough in following up on them with additional labs/X-rays that may be needed. The office manager, Jan has always been helpful and friendly as well.
in Orlando, FL |
Dr. Elston has been treating my Mother for 8 years now for her severe RA and she has received excellent care. Dr. Elston is very thorough and is not quick to dispense medication without lab work and full investing symptoms. If your looking for a Doctor who cares about the patients full history and helping his patients this is a Great Doctors. Jan is the officoffice manager is also very efficient.
in Fernandina Beach Florida |
I have been a patient of Dr. Elston for over 16 years. After initially trying a few rheumatologists, once diagnosed, I felt safe in his care. He was able to get me on regiment that would take several years of tweeking to meet my individual needs. For several years now, Dr Elston just monitors my condition and my appointments are fairly short. However the times I was in extreme need of care, he would spend as much time as needed. His office mgr Jan works tirelessly for him and his patients.
Winter Springs, FL |
I saw Dr Elston back in 2015. He walks in and with head down says "what can i do for you". Never a 'Hello'. Within 5 minutes he was arguing with me basically calling me a liar because the neuro guy I saw initially did not note that I had neuropathy. i was shocked at this display of unprofessionalism. I was desperate and ended up seeing him once more to get blood results. He said I was an interesting case and gave me some prednisone. I never went back.
in Casselberry, FL |
I have a lot of chronic pain from arthritis. Dr Elston has been very thrall on looking for the cause and how we can fix it. Sometimes he will stop and repeat what he has said to make me think. That's good I want to understand what's going on. He has a staff of 2. They have to backup each other and they do a great job.
in Altamonte Springs, FL |
I have been seeing Dr. Elston for several years. He diagnosed me with psoriatic arthritis, and he has helped me find the right treatment for me. Dr. Elston tells you exactly what the issue is and what needs to be done whether it's CT scans, blood work (which he monitors closely), or physical therapy. He gets right to the point and that is what I want in a doctor. His office manager, Jan, is friendly and very helpful. She's comforted me through my tears when I was having insurance issues.

Very attentive. Saved my life.
altamonte springs, fl |
I went to see Dr. Elston because he was the only choice my insurance offered. I read the bad reviews and thought I would give him a try anyway. I thought, I've been a nurse for a long time, I can handle it. I was wrong. He is by far the rudest, most arrogant physician I have ever met. I would give him negative stars if that were a choice. I do not know why he is a doctor, he obviously hates people.
in Longwood, Fla |
Dr. Elston has been an excellent and very caring Dr. who has helped me greatly. He is very kind and caring. He has gone above and beyond to insure I had the best care.
