Smart, thorough, compassionate. I went for a medical problem and the Dr. insisted on a full skin exam, (my old Derm never did that. )Thankful he did because he found a skin cancer. Also, he is great at Botox.

Dr Elias is very knowledgeable and the office staff is very friendly. Very short waiting time in the office (They don't overbook him). I definitely recommend him.

Awesome doctor! One of the very few dermatologists that has taken the time to explain everything to me. Loved that even though he was interviewing me he was still examining my skin and suggesting other procedures I could be interested in. He's not one of those dermatologists that sound more like a business man and try to sell you everything they do. Patient, charismatic, very knowledgeable and will definitely keep coming back for my follow-ups.
