January 29, 2018  — “I’ve been a patient of Dr. Elliott since July 2016, and I’ve received the best possible care and I am very relieved to have found a psychiatrist like this here in the Las Vegas region. Now 2.5 years later and I can say, even from the very beginning, that this psychiatrist knows how to practice medicine, knows current and best treatment, always effortlessly conveys rationale, comes across with experience, and did not waste time, nor scheduled unnecessary appointments. His appts are always on time.”

December 14, 2017 — “I’m extremely pleased I chose Dr. Elliott as my Psychiatrist. Instead of me having to explain what was wrong, he had an extensive list of questions that uncovered my needs. He was very respectful and explained my treatment in a way I could completely understand and with which I could be comfortable. He’s always on time, which is very important to me. I will recommend him to any of my family and friends in need of treatment.”

“Dr. Elliott has helped me to get my life back. I was terribly overmedicated and could no longer walk without assistance. Now I am off of the medications that were keeping me down and I am walking with a cane. At the age of 80 I have myself back. He is very compassionate and understanding of how his patients feel about their own conditions in life. I am very grateful for his assistance in accomplishing this for myself.”

“Out of the dozens of Dr’s [our son] has seen, some by court orders, some not, this experience along with the team at Duke Medical Center, were some of the best I’ve experienced. It was obvious to me that Dr. Elliott’s clinical experience & years in the service, made all the difference in the outcome for [our son].”

“I was very satisfied with my session with Dr. Elliott. The fact that he is a veteran made me feel more comfortable as he is familiar with the many issues US military veterans have experienced while serving in the US Armed Forces. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing help.”
