So thankful I found this doctor! She is amazing and took the time to not only care for my child's medical needs, but spent time talking with him about his interests! She did not rush the visit, but instead, took her time. I appreciate all she did!

Dr. Cassidy is amazing! I love that she is always just an email away from us! She is the best doctor!!!

Dr. Cassidy has been wonderful for our daughter. Even better was when Dr. Ardalan was a fellow with Dr. Cassidy. He was, by far the best physician I have ever seen. Dr. Cassidy and Dr. Ardalan worked so well together. Dr. Cassidy is aware of our daughter's condition, and she listens to our concerns and answers every question we have, even if the question is repetitive. She never rushes us and takes time explaining things to us.

Best provider ive ever taken my son to we got answers we wanted.

Elaine Cassidy was a breath of fresh air. She gave me answers that I have been looking for since my sons initial diagnosis. She was extremely knowledgeable and I have a new sense of understanding and hope. She really listened and made me feel comfortable, I really felt understood by her and that my fears, concerns and opinions were all valid. I know that she has my sons best interest in mind and am happy that I went to her for help. She really is an exceptional Doctor.

I would recommend Dr. Cassidy to Family and Friends. She was excellent and explained things so we understood what was wrong and the steps we need to take to help my son feel better.

I appreciated the fact that Dr. talked directly to my 13 year old daughter. Many Drs talk as if the child isn't even present or asking them only 1 or 2 questions but directing the majority of the conversation to the parent. The Dr, twice, asked a question using a term I wasn't familiar with. I had to ask for clarification.

Dr. Cassidy is a gem!! She always takes as much time as we need and is committed to helping my daughter. I just wish she had multiple degrees so she could be our pediatrician, general doctor and any other doctor we may need in the future!!

Dr. Cassidy was wonderful to myself and my child who is very anxious during any sort of doctor visit. Dr. Cassidy spoke directly to my child and treated her with kindness and compassion.
