I am from the SE corner of the state. The care provider was excellent, but considering my age, condition and the toll it took on my body mostly likely I wont be back.

This was my first visit with this provider. I saw him based on a referral for a new diagnosis of a neurologic disorder. I came in extremely worried and quite frankly scared. Dr. Elliott listened carefully, had reviewed all my records from PacMed and [...], explained my condition and proposed treatment and followup. I am a recently retired physician, and I asked him to treat me as a patient. He did just that, with the utmost respect for my concerns. I felt tremedously relieved and reassured when I left his office, and he's been excellent at followup on email and in a more recent visit as well. I feel he genuinely cares, and I feel he knows what he's doing - a good combination in a doctor!

Dr. Elliott is one of the best physicians that I have ever seen. As a nurse, I will seek outthe best of the best. Not only is Dr. Elliott an excellent physician, but he is an incredibly caring person. He has perfected the science and the art of medicine, making me feel listened to, well cared for and has helped me come up with a care plan to treat migraines (a diagnosis that has plagued me since childhood). I am so grateful to have found him and feel blessed to be in his hands.

this was night and day difference from what we experienced at [...]. The approach taken by Dr. Elliott made the possibility of a diagnosis of ALS a little easier to fathom anticipating we have a concerned team to walk with us.

I followed Dr Michael Elliot to Swedish when he left [...] and will continue through my lifetime to follow him where ever he goes. There is not a Neurologist, I believe, in the entire Seattle area that could compare with all that Dr Elliot provides and gives both professionally and personally. To try to describe his care, compassion, intelligence, experience, excellence, kindness, knowledge, and in all other qualifications. "Ineffable" is the word that comes to mind when working with Dr Michael Elliot. [...] There is no better Neurologist, Co-Chair of the Neurological Department that Swedish could find. [...]

Wasn't sure I understood the diagnosis. No explanation of my condition after the blood tests. Would appreciate communication with Dr. Ellitoo rather than a generic note on MyChart.

I have suffered with severe migraines for years. Dr. Elliott really listened to me and my concerns. Since I live out of the area, he helped me formulate a care plan for treatment should I need a "rescue" intervention if I got a migraine. He forwarded this information to my Primary Care MD and also sent me a copy. i feel very confident in his skills regarding my Botox injections and have finally found some relief after suffering for years.

I have been a patient of Dr. Elliott for several years. I have always felt he is concerned over my health, and tries hard to help me improve and be as comfortable as possible.
