While the team may have been stressed EVERYONE showed concern about my physical and emotional well-being. I have nothing but the best to say about everyone I saw during this visit.

January 20, 2020 5:14 PM

Dr. Elahi is my favorite provider of all professionals I see.

January 20, 2020 5:14 PM

This was the best of all past visits. The speed of registration, the short wait, and Dr's time with me were above my previous levels of experience. There has definitely been some improvement in the customer service aspect of the clinic. Before this visit, I would not have recommended the clinic, but would have recommended Dr. Taj

January 16, 2020 8:17 AM

Good. Appointment was for annual physical.

January 16, 2020 8:17 AM

Dr. Elahi always seemed genuinely concerned about me. She is easy to talk to.

Covered everything important - it was my yearly check up we discussed blood work - Rub - dermatologist - eye exam urologist appt. - blood pressure etc.

January 3, 2020 12:07 PM

Experience was good - I was given enough time - No bad experience - my doctor goes over everything with me. She is competent and kind.

always pleasant

Everything went well.

December 12, 2019 1:12 PM

Very nice & caring doctor.

December 10, 2019 2:42 AM

I just feel that she hurries you and is somewhat dismissive of concerns. I just go in and then she orders bloodwork and then I am not contacted with results, I have to initiate contact. Don't even get me started on trying to talk to a real person on the phone.

November 25, 2019 2:58 PM

overall the visit was great. If I did not have Dr. Olmstead as my primary doctor I would have this doctor

November 25, 2019 2:58 PM

she prescribed an ultra sound of my calf for a blood clot. I went to Christ the same day. it has now almost been a week and I have not received any notice if I have a clot or not. I am assuming due to not notice I do not have a clot, but it would be nice to know

November 22, 2019 8:58 AM

Dr. Elahi was very nice and explained things to me as well as answering my questions. I would not hesitate to see Dr. Elahi in the future if need be.

November 22, 2019 8:58 AM

It was a good experience. I saw Dr. Elahi because I needed to be seen soon and my regular doctor (Dr. X) was too booked up.

November 22, 2019 8:48 AM

Dr. Elahi (Taj) is a great doctor! I've been seeing her for many years and have recommended my friends to her.

November 22, 2019 8:48 AM

She takes her time to find out how "life" is going for me. Definitely caring about me as a whole person - not just a patient in for an annual physical and flu shot.

November 22, 2019 8:46 AM

I wanted to find a new physician in my area. My other doctor is planning on retiring so, therefore I needed someone closer to me.

November 14, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr. Taj Elahi is a very pleasant person. She cares and addresses the issues one by one. she explains why the sickness might happened and always she gives solution for it. She is always there for me! A -

November 11, 2019 2:03 PM

Dr.Taj Elahi exuded confidence. She displayed empathy - with eye contact, smiling; very attentive. She explained clearly in simple, plain language. She was very conscientious and persistent.

November 11, 2019 2:03 PM

Great first time encounter with Dr. Elahi!

October 27, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Elahi is very compassionate. Best medical professional I've ever been to.

October 2, 2019 7:00 PM

I like Dr. Elahi -

Dr Elahi is very good and spends time with me as long as I need her.

September 27, 2019 7:00 PM

I've used the MyAdvocateAurora portal to schedule scans and and a colonoscopy. no one has called me back

September 20, 2019 7:00 PM

This experience was good and the Dr. advised me that my Cholestoral was high.

September 18, 2019 7:00 PM

It was good.

September 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Elahi is an excellent doctor, takes time and explains what is happening, sometimes, fussy, but that's ok.

September 6, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Elahi removed the catheter I had on due to the emergency room visit I had the previous day. She was vary concerned and I was very grateful for her assistence.

September 1, 2019 7:00 PM

dr elahi is very sensitive to my needs and wellbeing, love her

August 26, 2019 7:00 PM

My experience with doctors at Advocate has always been excellent.

August 25, 2019 7:00 PM

My doctor and whole team are very good in a very respectful way.

August 25, 2019 7:00 PM

I came to Dr. Elahi because my blood pressure had gone up a lot in the past 2 weeks, I had suddenly gained more than 5 lbs. in about a week, and my feet were somewhat swollen. the doctor didn't seem to think that there anything wrong with me and made no recommendations.

August 25, 2019 7:00 PM

I had experienced a sudden and substantial loss of blood and was fearful. Dr. Elahi listened carefully and gave me an explanation that calmed me. She's great.

August 13, 2019 7:00 PM

August 6, 2019 7:00 PM

awesome, Dr Taj Elahi is the best!

July 31, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Taj Elahi is perfectly suited to me. She listens, express concerns and knows what should be done. I do not have anything negative to say about her. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give her a 20. She is a great doctor and seems to be a genuinely caring individual.

July 27, 2019 7:00 PM

very humble knowledgeable caring and soft spoken

July 14, 2019 7:00 PM

love my doctor

July 2, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Elahi was quite short with me. She was distracted by her phone, looking down at it as she walked out of the room, without even saying good-bye. I wasn't even sure if the visit was over! She was very negative about my insurance - made me feel bad for having an HMO. Then, I never even heard from the office about the referral I had requested (now over a week later). I'll be switching physicians.

June 3, 2019 7:00 PM

Very good. This was my first visit with Dr. Elahi. I decided to have her be my primary care physician since my previous one no longer works at Advocate.

June 2, 2019 7:00 PM

I have only seen Dr. Elahi twice. My previous primary care doctor is no longer available. I am very happy to have Dr Elahi as my doctor. She is very professional yet relatable.

May 24, 2019 7:00 PM

excellent

May 24, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Elahi is easy to talk to, listens well and shows true concern for patients.

May 24, 2019 7:00 PM

this was my first time seeing this doctor. she is very pleasant & compassionate

May 24, 2019 7:00 PM

When I actually get to my provider the experience is fine. it's the getting there that can be extremely annoying! Your computer system isn't very accurate either. Usually have to correct errors or missing info every time I go in.

May 7, 2019 7:00 PM

I always thank them for keeping me in such great shape and health.

April 28, 2019 7:00 PM

This was a pre-op appointment that I needed for scheduled cataract surgery. Dr. Elahi was helpful and explained why I needed a pre-op H&P in order to get my cataract surgery.

April 21, 2019 7:00 PM

Pleasant.

April 13, 2019 7:00 PM

I love seeing Dr. Elahi, she always explains everything to me in a way I understand. She stays in contact with my other specialty doctors and is always up to date with their treatments.

April 8, 2019 7:00 PM

This was a very positive and encouraging visit. I was encourage to keep up the good work of eating properly and using the treadmill that I had purchased to maintain tighter glucose control.

February 17, 2019 6:00 PM

I love my doctor.

February 17, 2019 6:00 PM

I think she is the best doctor ever. I know I am not her only patient but I sure feel like it. The procedure is a colonoscopy which the only thing to discuss is when not what. She is always interested in making sure I keep my annual appointments with specialists. She always seems to want the best for me. A wonderful physician.

February 11, 2019 6:00 PM

She was very nice. I look forward to a long doctor/patient relationship.

February 3, 2019 6:00 PM

Wonderfull doctor.

February 2, 2019 6:00 PM

I was very pleased with this provider. She impressed on me the need to continue my medication as prescribed and referred me to an endocrinologist for my diabetes. my prescription were refilled and when my urine culture indicated a UTI an antibiotic was prescribed.

February 1, 2019 6:00 PM

The low rating is based on the wait time of over an hour with my scheduled appointment. The clerks should have informed me of the long wait time when I checked in. Even after seeing the nurse for presrceening I sat in the medical room for at least 30 minutes before I saw Dr. Elahi.

January 30, 2019 6:00 PM

Love Dr. Elahi!! She is the best and really seems to care!!

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

I love having Dr. Elahi as my primary care physician. She is attentive, courteous, and compassionate and addresses all of my concerns patiently and thoroughly.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

my experience with this provider was great, she listen carefully to what I had to say and made her medical decision which I am happy with. I am scheduled to see this provider within three months to determine whether the right decision about the changed medication and to find out if the medication is making a difference. I'm happy with not dealing with the side effects of the last medication and awaiting the lab result of the new medication.

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

I was very pleased with Dr. Elahi's care.

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

love dr Elahi, always pleasant and knowledgeable

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

When I walked in to the office, it was my first visit there. I had no idea where to go to check in. there were multiple desks and no signs directing where to go. Once I got checked in for my appointment, I ended up waiting almost 45 minutes past my appointment time to see the doctor. This was my first visit, so we talked about medications that I was taking and she set up refills for me. She also ordered some blood tests and a foot x-ray for pain that I was having. She was also going to put through for 2 referral approvals, as I have an HMO. I appreciated that she did not ignore my concerns over my foot pain. I was able to take care of the blood work and x-ray on the same day, in the same facility. That was very convenient.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

great dr

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr Elahi has been my doctor for more than 20 years and I am very satisfied with her.
