Yes, Elyse was wonderful yesterday. I can’t tell you she even offered I never even thought that they could give me shots to help alleviate my pain in my hip and she said I can see that you’re you know, you’re in pain. Would you like this shot, and I 1st went but then she said no no no it’s absolutely safe and what it does it’s an anti inflammatory flammatory rather and it’s we put it in your hip. She says now we can’t do that for your knee or your shoulder because those are joints but where you’re having pain is in your bursa and of course I went oh okay, and then I got the shot and I’m telling you it is wonderful. It is divine and wonderful and she thought of that all by yourself, she just was watching me and I I thought that was terrific.

I moved here recently and was concerned about finding a Rheumatologist that I could trust since I have been diagnosed since 2007. I am so so very pleased and feel confident and trust this provider and the recommendations.

Elyse Blankston far exceeded my expectations in my visit. I have have been trying to find a local health care provider to talk about the conditions I have for many, many years. While the diagnoses were not easy to hear, it was a relief to finally make some progress.

Yeah, I think the Elyse did a wonderful job. She was right on spot with Insight. I didn’t know if she just like read my mind. I hope that I see her on all of my visits. She was very pleasant and my follow up visit with different doctors has already started to happen, and her diagnosis about my feet. She didn’t even have to touch me. All she did was look and she got it, and I’m already getting help and for years. I’ve always taken my shoes and socks off, and said, look at my seat and nobody did, and she was wonderful with me. She just was a lifesaver. So, Say, thank you for me. Bye.

I had a far better experience with Elyse the NP this time than my prior appointment with the Dr. and I really appreciate it!

I think that she did a heck of a job of explaining to me and went above her job. To help me out, and everything and really was concerned. So yes, I think she is a very good provider. Thank you.

I just needed something for my back pain in my shoulder pain. But I was told to just Tylenol, was all I could get so that that’s what my main problem was, that’s why I was at the doctor was trying to get something for the pain plus find the other medication we did find that. So that went well, thank you.

This was my first appointment..both of the NP I seen were amazing. They listened and helped me understand my condition and wasnt quick to diagnose. Receptionist was very polite and professional.

The only problem I had was, I had appointments with 2 different doctors at this location, but someone had called me one day to change my appointment from this doctor apparently, and I thought it was Huskies office. I don’t know. Somehow something got mixed up, because she changed her off though. So that’s the only thing is explaining better who they are or whatever. And, you know, giving you more information how to find your building with his name on it, which it doesn’t have and things like that. Thank you.

ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT CARE! Will be continuing as well as transferring all my medical care to Marietta Memorial! Thank you for treating me with care, compassion. Most importantly for finding answers to my issues.

Elyse is always wonderful and she had a student with her this time that was equally as great. They are lucky to be learning from her.

The check in nurse, Jamie, is a huge added bonus to this practice. She meets everyone with a smile and compliment – every time! Elyse Blackston is the only provider I will see in this department as she does listen and try to find solutions to patient needs and problems. The only recommendation that I would have as a rheumatology patient is to have more of a hands-on interaction. I know Covid has all of us paranoid about not touching but rheum patients typically have joint/muscle changes that could potentially be caught or at least monitored for treatment modifications. However, overall I am pleased with the care I receive from the NP and her staff.

I have been searching for help with my pain for at least 5 years. I Didn’t want “pain” medication, I wanted a diagnosis, I got that through Dr. Krants Office. Very Compassionate, Caring Doctor & Staff.

She was a nurse provide nurse practitioner and she gave me more information and more help than anybody has ever done more than the doctor did. I would go back to her anytime.

This appointment had to be cancelled and rescheduled. Before sending a survey it would be good for you to check your information for accuracy. I wasn’t there on that date.
