May 7, 2020 8:28 AM

My dr. is very patience about keeping me calm and just prepared for any changes in my condition. I have been diagnosed with lymphoma, but a low grade. Panic for me has past because Dr. Elahi has talked to me and explained that it is not active enough to go into heavy medication. Thank God!

April 17, 2020 12:00 AM

Excellent. Due to COVID-19 we did a telephone visit. We should do more of these. Cost should be reduced for the visit.

April 2, 2020 4:39 AM

Dr. Riaz Elahi very good.

April 1, 2020 7:54 AM

Dr. Elahi, is a very good doctor. He is always trying to help you takes is time when you are with him. I wouldn't go to an one else. I starting going to him after Dr. X retired.

February 22, 2020 7:45 AM

Dr. Elahi is an awesome physician, friendly yet professional, he cares and empathizes. I encountered him walking a patient from her appointment as he encouraged her.

Dr. Elahi was very thorough and kind. First consultation visit. The MA was exceptional.

January 9, 2020 11:00 AM

The receiving receptionist was very kind. The exit receptionist, a petite young lady with long hair and glasses was very abrupt when an appointment was requested at the Hazel Crest Office just handed my father and I a card and said "you have to call that number, we don't schedule for Orland or Hazel Crest". When I attempted to ask why, since the AMG offices are now all on EPIC, a clear explanation was not offered. I felt she was dismissive and rude.

December 28, 2019 7:46 AM

Dr. Elahi is a compassionate and expert caregiver. He is so concerned not just about my condition but my entire health and wellbeing. I love this guy!
