Horrible Experience
Took my stroke survivor wife there since her existing psychiatrist disappeared without a trace. Wanted her to be seen my the doctor who refused and made us deal with a nurse practitioner who was rude, argumentative, would t listen. Worst experience ever. Wasted over an hour there with no results. Need to find her another one.

I was a patient of Dr. Elliston’s for about 10 months. His office staff were pretty awful, always have an attitude, and were increasingly difficult to put up with. Before my last encounter with their office, they told me I wasn’t in compliance with an office policy & had to reschedule my appointment. I asked if I could have a copy of the office policies emailed to me so that I could be better prepared for future visits and adhering to office policies. Then was told by the same staff member that they don’t have office policies. Mind you, my profession is managing the office of a psychiatrist so I know when I’m getting the run around!

I have been seeding Dr. Elliston since he began practicing at Medical City. He's a laid back and easy going man, with a good demeanor and he listens...very intently. I have always appreciated his 'bedside manner' and I am now in my 10th year seeing him four times a year. I have sent multiple friends to see Walt, and would never consider any one else as my doc.
