Ratings for Dr. Scott Elliott
I have had Dr. Elliott for my GP since 1992. In the beginning he was excellent. He has changed so much, now that I am a senior, is moody, rude and treats me with indifference. His staff are the least compassionate people I have ever dealt with. During the past few years, I have had serious health issues, which he never addresses, anytime I have received help I have had to go to the BGH Emergency, where I have been well looked after and treated the way I would expect Dr. Elliott to treat me. I wish I could find another Dr.. who would treat me with respect etc. but due to the shortage of good physicians I have to contend with this man. He is only 55 years old, each year gets more unpleasant for me. I really don't think he enjoys his work anymore and the patients are the ones who suffer. Sept. 2016
All of my original comments regarding this "doctor" have been taken down for reasons unknown. I've been a patient for over 25 years, and have had my fair share of medical issues. I have no confidence in this doc, after all the slow, ineffective treatmentl I've been put through. He's OK for things that "turns blue or falls off", but anything more nuanced than that, it's virtually useless. He has garnered a bad rep from nurses at the hospital, and I've personally witnessed him lambasting nurses at the hospital. Completely unprofessional conduct, and uncalled for behaviour. He did nothing to prevent my myocardial infarction and my use of supplements and alternative treatments is viewed with complete ridicule by him. I only use supplements I know have clinical validity. My on-going health issues were ignored for so long I lost my job over it, and can no longer keep myself employed due to chronic conditions he claims are due to my "sickness mentality". Bullcrap "Dr." Elliott. He was of no help in securing a CPP disability claim due to his obvious disdain for any form of social assistance. If you have any social or sexual problems, he's the last guy on Earth who can sort it out and help you (unless you are one of those individuals who responds to Viagra). His knowledge of ED must be very shallow, as I've amassed ten times more knowledge on the subject by reading books and articles I've found online from docs who are more versed on the subject than him. I could write volumes of text outlining his pitfalls, but why bother? I'm stuck with him for now, but looking for a replacement in the months to come.
Doctor Elliot and his staff should consider different careers. He is only interested in caring for his patients when it suits him. If you are elderly, then forget it. He refuses care. His staff are rude and disrespectful. My mother was his patient, and due to his negligence, she did not get any kind of care until it was too late. I would rate this doctor with no stars if I could. He and his staff should be very ashamed. Also being told if you cannot attend an appointment then you will not get another for at least 3 months is ridiculous. Clearly Elliot and his staff are in it for the money. They have no care, consideration at all for their patients.
Doctor Elliot has been my doctor my entire life. He is abrupt to say rhe least and very -to -the - point. The staff have a general attitude. Not very happy people. They can be kind at times but I've found it to be a little uncomfortable. Crystal being the only acception (always pleasent). That being said it's understandable, they seem to be tip toeing around the doctors moods each time I've visited. I will say thay for every appointment they're on time or early. The helpfulNess of the staff is great (not including Doctor Elliot). Doctor elliot seems to expect you to have a solution, he tends to push aside things that are seemingly important. His practices are some what outdated at times as well. I've never had an interaction with him in which he was very proactive in assisting the issues I put forth. All of this aside he's wonderful with children. He seems to enjoy them. All in all he's a decent doctor if you know what you want.
Dr. Elliott has been my doctor for over 30 years and I couldn't imagine having anyone else care for my medical needs. I worked in the Long Term Care for 32 years and witnessed many doctors ignore the elderly and show no caring heart. He always came to visit his patients routinely as the gov't requires. Other doctors couldn't even show up to do routine checks on their patients. As a patient of his I have found him to be honest and upfront with my care and he also refuses to pull out the prescription pad as an answer to my health concerns. To many doctors rely of medications to solve health issues when in reality they cause more problems then good.
Dr. Elliott wanted to send a patient home and the next day that patient's body was shutting down. Perhaps if that patient had been sent to Hamilton earlier (rather than stating that they were getting him ready to go home) that patient would still be with us. May God forgive you Dr. Elliott because my forgiveness will be a long time coming.
I am blessed to have such a caring and capable doctor. Dr. Elliot has been caring for me and my whole family ( four children)for 17 years. Yes, there was issues with the phones but has now been rectified. Dr. Elliot treats me well and when I see him he listens and takes what I say seriously. I never have to wait for my appointments and if there is something he questions, he will refer. Nothing is too big or small. I am very fortunate to have Dr. Elliot as my family doctor.
The phone system is terrible. It takes days to get through to actually schedule an appointment. I was also misdiagnosed. I was told I had a cold sore when it was actually a hemangeoma on my lip. Nonetheless, I went to Western University Hospital and was properly diagnosed by a microsurgeon and promptly received surgery to have it removed. I lived my entire life with a giant bulge in my lip due to his misdiagnosis. He is fine for routine check-ups, needles, cough and colds but not for something perplexing that requires further attention.
I left Brantford to get better medical care. I was very depressed at the time I was his patient and he refused to prescribe medication. He stated he did not want to turn me into my mother! Now my mother does take a variety of medications but this doctor breached confidentiality in my view. I was asking for help and was basically told to suck it up in not so many words. If my mother is on too much medication who's fault is that? He's her doctor! Also dad needed major surgery and this doctor almost missed what was wrong which could have killed my dad. Dad diagnosed himself and told Elliot what the problem was! The problem is Elliot does not do proper physical exams and seems to be a afraid of germs. I worry for his patients but with the doctor shortage in small towns what are people supposed to do? This doctor NOT one I would go to.
