What People Say About Dr. Michael Elist, DO

I was really lucky to find Dr. Michael Elist. I was diagnosed with RA 3 years ago but was not ever in remission. I always had swelling in my hands and specially my knees in the mornings with difficulty walking. With Dr. Elist treatment plan I have now been in remission for the last 6 months and my life is starting to normalize. I know chances of my RA flaring are still there but I couldnt be happier right now!

Dr. Michael Elist is amazing! He's thoughtful, smart, patient and explains medical jargon in a format that you can understand. I highly recommend him to anyone with a rheumatologic disease.

I am 26 years old and began having multiple symptoms including joint pain, weird rashes and just feeling sick. I did not have health insurance at the time and when I finally received it, many doctors would not see me because its not PPO. Fortunately Dr. Elist accepted my medical insurance and finally diagnosed me with a form of mild lupus. I have been seeing him for the last year and on the appropriate treatments and doing great now. I am again able to work and go to school thanks to Dr. Elist

Dr. Elist takes the time to listen and really cares about his patients. After being to 3 different rheumatologists, Dr. Elist was the one who diagnosed me and started my treatment plan. I am so grateful to him.
