Great Dr

January 06, 2016

Dr. Cassidy was very caring doctor. She spent the time to explain every little detail. She actually spent time with my daughter and addressed all our concerns. I highly recommend her to anybody looking for a rheumatologist.

Dr. Cassidy was wonderful. She took the time to help us and provided an action plan to help my son. I couldn't have asked for better.

December 04, 2015

I was very pleased with our recent visit with Dr. Elaine Cassidy! She took time in asking questions and listening to my concerns regarding my daughter.

December 02, 2015

this was the first time, in a long time, that my daughter felt like a doctor took the time to actually listen to what was going on with her. We didn't feel rushed and felt like Dr. Cassidy was totally committed to getting to the bottom of whatever was causing my child's symptoms. This has always been our experience with the rheumatology department at children's.

Dr. Cassidy is by far the most understanding, professional, personal, caring doctor I have ever experienced. I feel like she is as much a friend as a doctor working her very best for our daughter!!!!!

November 17, 2015

Dr. Cassidy is an excellent doctor, and we are always happy with the time and care she gives at my appointments.

November 03, 2015

I skipped some questions regarding nurses as they mostly provided intake - blood pressure, weight, height. My daughter is a regular patient and the nurses there did not do a pre-evaluation questionnaire. I am happy with the overall care my daughter received in at the Children's Hospital Rhuematology Department. Dr. Elaine Cassidy has been such a positive influence in the care of my daughter's on-going maintenance of her arthritis. She is thorough and provides us with education of the disease and updates on the field of arthritis including new medications and possible treatments for the future if my daughter would have an arthritis flare.

November 03, 2015

Dr. Cassidy is an extremely caring and conscientious professional, she always puts my daughter at ease and takes the time to address all of our concerns.
