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.
