Dr. Elliott is phenomenal! My daughter fractured her wrist and I took her to the urgent care for treatment. The treatment she received was exceptional! The fracture was pretty bad and Dr. Elliott and his PA, Sarah, did an amazing job fixing her arm! She had surgery in the ASC, which was an amazing experience, as well. Dr. Elliott even called us personally the day after surgery to make sure everything was going well. I would definitely recommend Dr. Elliott and his team for orthopedic care.

I would highly recommend Dr. Elliott who has any type of hand issue or needs hand surgery. He also removed basal cell cancer from face and the reconstruction was not even noticeable after it was healed. He is fantastic!!

Dr. Elliott was very professional and always listened to my concerns. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs hand surgery.

Dr. Elliott has been treating me for injury to my right wrist due to fall on ice that resulted in 2 torn ligaments in my wrist. I have to say that being on receiving end of his excellent patient care has been awesome! He performed surgery on my wrist 6/23/16 & it's feeling great already. Not only being his patient myself, but working with Dr Elliott for over a year, I knew I was in great hands! On behalf of myself & all of his many patients, thank you! You are an awesome asset to OSS!

Dr Elliott is a very compassionate surgeon. He explained in detail the extent of the injury and prognosis for my husband’s injury. He took the time to make sure that we understood all that was involved . His dynamic personality shows through and made a trying experience for us more bearable. He has a God-given talent . We were certainly blessed to have had him. A surgery that was originally to be around 2 hours in length turned out to be 41/2 hours in duration. He would periodically send word .
