Dr. Elliot and her staff were ALL excellent in thouroughness, thoughtfulness, and so knowledgeable in the degree my symptoms were explained to me

Dr Elliott goes out of her way to help me with my condition.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

Dr Elliot is an amazing doctor. she is thorough and professional and compassionate. I wish more doctors had her bedside manner along with her knowledge base.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

My doctor is extremely nice and she has been more than helpful throughout my entire process. She is friendly, caring and genuine. Sometimes when she sees me the process feels rushed, and I feel like I cannot ask questions. Other than that, I would not change to another doctor due to her generosity and kindness.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

Amy Elliott is outstanding - so bright, top of her field, really kind. We have sent a very sick friend to her - she diagnosed dermatomyositis & helps HUGELY!!

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

It was my first visit. If I knew her better, I would probably recommend her and mark "very good" instead of "good" on this survey. For me, it's really difficult upon first meeting a doctor to leave the office and recommend that doctor.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

great provider timeliness prompt care to get results!

SHC Patient, May 2019

Dr. Elliott spent a bit less time with me for this appointment than previous appointments. However, I was being "worked in", and she and I had communicated several times before this appointment about my issue, so even tho the time was short, my situation was well addressed.

SHC Patient, May 2019

Dr. Elliott is a shining example of what our medical community should be. I drive 3.5 to 4 hours one way for each 20 minute appointment, so you can tell she is very important to me and my healthcare.

SHC Patient, May 2019

Dr. Elliott is the best doctor in the Bay area. She has a very good "bed-side" manner. She listens, asks questions, and follows through on her plans. She is kind but most of all. She is a very smart doctor. She saved my life, seriously.

SHC Patient, May 2019

Dr. Elliott is very knowledgeable and insightful

SHC Patient, May 2019

EXCELLENT

SHC Patient, May 2019

I was impressed that she had "done her homework" before our appointment, checking some things from my records.

SHC Patient, May 2019

love dr Elliott. she's been so good to me for the many years I have had her as part of my UC care team. thanks!!

SHC Patient, May 2019

Dr. Elliott and her staff are great and I would highly recommend this location. They were all very patient with my wife and I and addressed all of our questions and concerns.

SHC Patient, May 2019

I am always pleased with the level of care I receive from Dr. Elliot. I always feel listened to and heard. She listens to my concerns and makes every attempt to understand then she tries to find solutions to the issues.

SHC Patient, May 2019

Thoroughly reviewed treatment and possible options. Referred me for second opinion. in past has called me directly or had staff call or has corresponded using my health ( even on the weekend). Shows genuine concern. excellent doctor! Previously, doctor has cintactrd me by Phone and MyHealth or staf

SHC Patient, May 2019

Dr Elliott is excellent beyond description. There should be more like her in practice.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr Amy Elliott was fantastic. Felt like she was actively listening and trying to identify what may be ailing me. So glad to have found her.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr. Elliott was very good and I would highly recommend her.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr. Elliott is an outstanding doctor. She was able to diagnose my illness quickly (which I understand can be difficult one to diagnose) and get treatment for me immediately. In my office visits she is efficient yet takes ample time, explaining my illness and treatment and answering all questions. She gives me visit notes at each appointment which describe what we've covered and instructions going forward. She messages me via "MyHealth Stanford" checking on my progress or problems. She has even texted complex medication dosages/schedules which had been discussed at appointments, to be sure I had this information in writing. Dr. Elliott goes "above and beyond" in her concern and help for me. My husband and I so appreciate and trust her!

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr. Elliott is a kind and compassionate doctor. She is never in a hurry, answers all my questions. I really appreciate her!

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

It was a pleasure to meet and be cared for by Dr. Elliot. She is very courteous, caring, and respectful. She provided very clear explanations of my medical condition and various remedies.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr Amy Elliott is excellent

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

I honestly can't thank Dr Elliott enough for being such a compassionate, thoughtful, informed, intelligent doctor. I have been through a terrible time over the past 4 months, despite the excellent efforts of the doctors I have seen across so many specialists at Stanford.But Dr Elliott is a true standout. Although I am not at all happy with my diagnosis, the time she took to explain everything to me, to acknowledge the impact this diagnosis would have on me (recognising what a major impact this will have on my life as an athlete). her care and concern for how the medications may affect me, the notes she provided to help me understand the diagnosis, her follow up email that detailed the treatment plan went a long, long way to make me feel confident in my care. I am so grateful to her.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Grateful that Dr Elliot spent time answering every question I had about my knees, shoulder, hand and hip and went over all relevant Xrays. her explanations were clear. she allayed my concerns about RA. Her extensive knowledge, intelligence and experience are remarkable.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

I trust Dr. Elliott immensely, but sometimes our visit seem like they are less than five minutes long!

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Dr. Elliott is always attentive, listens, gives good advice and takes as much time as needed.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Dr. Elliott shows compassion and concern for her patients. I have a high level of confidence in her and appreciate her greatly! The drive from Modesto is well worth it!

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Dr. Elliott is a very good clinician, always works to help problem solve my medical problems with my other physicians. Messaged/called two other physicians within days of my appointment and followed up with me. Always present, even if I haven't been able to make trip to her office given where I live.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

all good

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

I appreciate Dr. Elliott. She is smart, well informed, knowledgeable about not only her field and specialty but about other treatment I am receiving which might affect her treatment.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Dr. Elliott is always open to any concerns I have and makes good suggestions on what I need to do or what changes in medication need to be made.

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

dr Elliott is one of the best doctors I've had. she's very smart and has guided me well through some complicated medical challenges.

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

Dr. Elliott is beyond awesome ! I'm truly blessed that I found her.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

In reviewing my past lab results, Dr. Elliot identified a possible diagnosis for my current arthritic conditions and a past symptom which was previously thought to caused by an injury. This led her to a treatment which hopefully may improve the pain in my index fingers.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

all of you are above average--thank you

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

I've been impressed with Dr. Elliott. She diagnosed my disease when no other doctors could. She is very caring, thorough, takes enough time with me. Follows up via phone & messaging.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

I really appreciate Dr. Elliott's detailed discussions with me and including me in making medical decisions.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Because I called to make the appointment for pain, Dr. Elliott gave me a sooner appointment than the usual wait time. She was very responsive to my problem and ordered blood tests and referred me to an ENT doctor. She notified me of the problem with the blood tests and is following up with repeat tests in one week. I am grateful that she is working on finding the cause of my neck pain. She is a very smart and caring doctor.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

I have seen Dr. Amy Elliot several times over the years and have found her to be caring, helpful and straight-forward. I think she is very capable with a cordial bedside manner.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Love this doctor and trust her completely! Knowledgeable, open minded, with systemic approach and nice, compassionate personality. Would recommend her to anyone in need of rheumatologist cervices!
