Very friendly and caring, takes time with his patients, no rushing, explains medications, side effects, follow up care and next steps.

January 22, 2015

Best office visit I have had ever! Dr. Eliason was so pleasant and professional as was his assistant. I felt immediately at ease and in great care. He called me a few days later himself with results of the biopsy and again was so professional and took his time with me. I would recommend him to anyone and have in fact mentioned his name to my friends in case they need dermatology care. My best experience ever!

He was helpful in explaining anything I was worried about. Felt at ease after talking with him.

January 12, 2015

Overall experience of care provided by Dr. Eliason and the Physicians Assistant - I definitely would recommend.

January 12, 2015

I thought Dr. Eliason was great, very personable. His MA seemed a little short with him, and as a health professional, I didn't appreciate it very much.

January 12, 2015

Dr. Eliason was very thorough and explained not only the problems I was having with my skin, but the treatment, medication, possible side effects and what to look for if I had any concerns. He is a GREAT Dr. who truly cares about his patients needs.

December 26, 2014

Dr. Eliason carefully evaluated my progress and explained the different options, his preference, and the reasons for it. He also told me a bit about the drug mechanisms...what more could I ask for?

Very good experience. My daughter and I appreciate Dr. Eliason's expertise and complete information.

November 07, 2014

Great experience. On time. Kind, caring, Great communication about my problem and follow-up on pathology results in 2 days.

November 06, 2014

Dr. Elliason is one of the best Doctor I have ever had. He took the time to answer my questions, what a wonderful and caring Doctor he is! I recommended him to my friends

November 03, 2014

Very interested in making sure I understood all of the things that were happening

November 03, 2014

Whenever I visit with Dr. Eliason, "I feel safe!" I know he is as concerned with maintaining my health as am I.

November 02, 2014

Dr. Eliason was phenomenonal. I wanted to know what was going on during my procedure, and he gave a clear, easy-to-understand explanation the entire time. It was great. I felt safe amid my nervousness. Additionally, the dressing of my site was outstanding; it looked almost as though no incision was made. I don't want to set false expectations for future patients, so what I'll say is that it seems as though Dr. Eliason gives his very best to his patients, and its obvious.

October 30, 2014

Like the MD's not sure about all the PA's and assistants they have in the clinic.

October 23, 2014

Dr. Eliason must be a genius. He has absolute command of symptoms, diagnosis, and prescription. He seems very intelligent, but he is not haughty about it. He is very good natured, and explains himself well.

October 19, 2014

I would be happy to recommend this doctor and staff but I am retired and don't see many people anymore.

October 13, 2014

Feel very confident with Dr. Eliason

October 11, 2014

I consider my case complex, and I'm like to be 100% involved in decisions affecting my treatment. Dr. Eliason is a very patient and caring doctor who seems to make the effort to bring me any new information about treatment options. His assistant Ryan and support staff are capable and responsive too.

October 08, 2014

The Attending took care of my problem very good and answered to all of my questions.

October 06, 2014

Dr. Eliason is the most courteous doctor I have ever encountered. He even said thank you to his medial assistant. I really liked him looking into my eyes (not the computer) when explaining things to me.

October 04, 2014

he is the best!!

September 24, 2014

Extremely kind and very concerned with questions that I had

September 19, 2014


September 18, 2014

This was my second time in this clinic and the Attending is very nice and answer all my questions and take care of problem very good. I was so happy.

September 17, 2014

Dr. Eliason was a great doctor. He was very considerate of my mother. He took the time to explain to her everything he was going to do. He was very sensitive and respectful of her feelings. We usually see Dr. Leiferman, but she was booked until the end of January & I felt like my mother needed to be seen before that. I was so happy to find another doctor that I feel comfortable having my mother see, if we can't get into see Dr. Leiferman in the future.

September 12, 2014

Doctor Eliason answered all of my questions thoroughly and in a way that was easy for me to grasp. I proudly informed him of my accomplishments in my Anatomy class at the U and he tailored the way he was explaining my Angiolipoma to the basal knowledge of anatomy that I do have. On top of understanding everything thoroughly, it was fun for me to hear and relate the layers of muscle and various layers of the skin that I had learned about earlier that morning to the more technical words he was saying about my own body. It was very encouraging to see a doctor that didn't feel out of reach as a patient. I was comfortable asking him any question I had, and he was very thorough in explaining what I needed to do to be rid of my shoulders unwelcome guest. Also, being a full-time student I don't have a lot of time to sit and do anything not relating to the obnoxious amounts of homework and or studying that I have, so Dr. Eliason was fast in a way that didn't feel rushed while still being thorough in answering all of my questions. All in all it was a very pleasant experience and I'd recommend him to anyone seeking dermatological assistance.

September 08, 2014

Dr. Eliason has gone out of his way to satisfy my needs. As a matter of fact, he has done more than can reasonably be expected of a man in his position.

August 29, 2014

Dr. Eliason has an excellent bedside manner. Great work.

August 25, 2014

Dr Eliason is the best! He always treats you like you are the only patient he has -He should teach other providers how to treat patients!

August 25, 2014

I have total confidence in Dr.Eliason

August 22, 2014

He was excellent. I came in very emotional about a persistent skin issue that has been having a significant impact on my life and left feeling confidant that he would help me until we could find a diagnosis and solution. Bedside manner was excellent. He learned about me and tailored his explanations to my knowledge level. He also knew exactly when to be light and make jokes and when to be serious and comforting. Overall, he's a great doctor who I would recommend to anyone.

August 18, 2014

Dr. Mark J. Eliason is one of the best persons I've ever met and he is also a great physician. I wish him all the best!

August 15, 2014

Dr. Eliason was great. Although he could not resolve my problem, he offered steps I could take to improve the situation.

August 10, 2014

Dr E was fantastic. Had lip problem for years. He diagnosed correctly. Warned me treatment would be "uncomfortable" (understatement). Followed his instructions exactly because I did not want to ever go through that experience again ;o) pre cancer all gone.

August 04, 2014

Dr. Ellison was wonderful.

July 30, 2014

Had a wonderful experience with the doctor. The doctor was thorough and caring and spent adequate time with me.

June 28, 2014

Outstandingly good.

June 24, 2014

was very happy that the two very small procedures I needed were taken care of that visit with no need to schedule an additional appointment

June 20, 2014

Dr. Eliason is very good to tell you exactly what he is doing. I really appreciate his humor and personality he makes you laugh and puts you at ease during an uneasy situation. I wish more doctors were like him, I would wait hours just to see him an it would not matter to me because of his demeanor and the way he explains the things he is doing.

June 14, 2014

Pays particular attention to procedures which might be uncomfortable emotionally, e.g. draping during full-body examination. Explained difference between normal and potentially bad skin irregularities. Commended me for stoicism during nitrogen freezing of trouble spots he identified.

June 11, 2014

He gave me many samples of skin lotion, all of which were depleted after two or three applications. I would have appreciated it had he been more specific about using a certain one lotion or cream.

June 07, 2014

We live in AZ, and I fly to SLC because of the care and Doctor Eliason

June 05, 2014

May 12, 2014

Excellent provider, will be back next year.

May 10, 2014

great Dr .

May 05, 2014

Dr. Eliason has a very good bedside manner. He really took my concerns into account while discussing with me the treatment options and helping me make an informed choice rather than just being the "expert" and telling me this is what you need to do. I would most definitely recommend him to family and friends.

April 25, 2014

Dr. Eliason is "user friendly!" I never feel rushed in asking questions.

April 25, 2014

Dr. E Rocks!

April 14, 2014

Dr. Eliason is seriously one of the kindest providers we have here at the University. From the minute he walked in the room he treated me with nothing but kindness, was friendly, thorough in his explanation, considerate, and I always recommend him to anyone looking for a new Dermatologist. If we could clone him and his abilities and have one of him in ever specialty, our patients would probably have NO complaints.

April 14, 2014

I was extremely pleased with the information and expertise I received from both Dr. Eliason and his staff.

April 12, 2014

During the suturing of an incision, the suture Dr. Eliason was pulling through my skin caught and yanked my head. He profusely apologized, explained what happened and explained what he was going to do to prevent that from happening again. It was an accident, but I am very appreciative of the way Dr. Eliason was upfront and honest and took steps to insure it wouldn't happen again. It was a fantastic Doctor patient experience.

April 06, 2014

Care provider was competent and explained everything ahead of time.

April 04, 2014

Dr. Eliason is very personable and I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for an awesome dermatologist!!!!

April 03, 2014


March 29, 2014

The physician was very thorough and I felt confident in the things he told me.

March 29, 2014


March 17, 2014

The doctor was very professional and informative. In the 10 years that I have struggled with my skin condition and visited several different physicians, this was the first time that I was made fully aware of what my condition entails as well as treatment options. Dr. Eliason was very attentive, patient and informative. I highly recommend Dr. Mark Eliason.

March 13, 2014


March 08, 2014


March 06, 2014

This visit he seemed a little rushed. Unlike all other visits.

March 05, 2014

I felt bad for him because I could tell he was stressed by how far he was behind. This always affects care no matter how hard you try.

February 23, 2014

Dr. Eliason is a great find among specialists.

February 21, 2014

Dr. Eliason was terrific! He was very relaxed, polite, concerned. Listened extremely well, explained what he was going to do each step of the way, asked frequently if I had any other questions or issues, and responded to each. He was also extremely efficient in the visit, including smoothly completing two biopsies while talking constantly to explain what he was doing and what he was thinking.

February 18, 2014

I just felt a bit rushed like they were in a race to see who could finish first.

February 17, 2014

treated me with kindness, concern, and addressed all my questions. I am so glad Dr. Eliason who I saw.

February 08, 2014

I wish I could give even higher markings! Dr. Eliason is awesome...

February 08, 2014


January 31, 2014

Dr. Eliason was amazing. He was friendly, attentive, noninvasive, educated, and everything else I hope for in a physician. I have been struggling with my skin for a long time and I wish I had come to Dr. Eliason years and years ago.

January 31, 2014

Had a great experience with Dr. Eliason. He is always so thorough in explaining what he is going to do, how it will feel, and how long it will last. And this time he had a medical student with him, that gave me even more of an insiders view, because he was explaining case studies and practice suggestions to the student and it made me feel so much more involved knowing all the things he shared.

January 25, 2014

Have already referred two of my patients to him.

January 25, 2014

Turns out I did not have a problem but Dr. Elliason gave me good instructions on what to look for.

January 22, 2014

October 26, 2013

Dr. Eliason is always courteous and professional.

October 24, 2013

Exam room not equipped to accommodate hearing impaired - too much echo, location of computer for nursing assistant to input my answers to her questions, etc. should be located to facilitate line of sight for the this customer who has double hearing aids and needs to be able supplement them by lip reading.

October 18, 2013

he informed me that a medication I had taken previously by pill form had some FDA indications that no longer made it a good choice and so we went with the cream instead.

October 15, 2013

MD was excellent. He was quite knowledgable and gave great information. He did speak quickly and gave me a lot of information in a short period of time. I wished I had audio recorded our interaction because I have a hard time recalling the conversation now. WOuld help if he wrote some notes for me or gave me some handout information. It was kind of weird that the nurse was there in the room for our meeting.

October 14, 2013

Dr. Eliason is wonderfully communicative and caring. He followed up with me after the appointment, post lab-work and was available by cel-phone for my return call. Very convenient and appreciated!

September 22, 2013

Pain during prep was bad actual biopsy excelent

September 21, 2013

Dr. Ellison is wonderful! He explains everything very well. He always allows me to be part of my care. I feel like its a conversation between two equals rather then him telling me what to do. He is always respectful of my concerns and questions.

September 20, 2013

Dr. Eliason is great! He speaks to me in terms I understand clearly and makes me feel comfortable with the treatment he is offering. I would highly recommend him to friends and family.

September 20, 2013

Everything went fairly well

September 10, 2013

The doctor struck me as particularly competent and patient oriented. He even called me to let new know my biopsy results we're normal. I wish more doctors were like him.

August 26, 2013

Dr. Eliason was very thorough, professional, and communicative. Would highly recommend.

August 26, 2013

Doctor showed concern and listened to me.

June 07, 2013

Dr.Eliason is a great doc, very supportive, caring and friendly. But, this visit he was running late and i felt rushed. I think that he should have come with more options for my problem. I had to suggest my own options.

June 05, 2013

I was in a physical therapy session for my arm. Prior to that appointment, Dr. Eliason had removed "something" from my hand. My therapist asked what had happened! I explained and then said that I "felt safe and had hope" when in his care. A gentleman overheard my comments, extended his hand, and said, "I'm John Huntsman. I couldn't help but overhear your words. . . . Thank you. . . ."

June 01, 2013

Excellent experience

May 29, 2013

In meeting with a new Care Provider is always stressful, however I will say this is the most positive experience I have ever had. No stress and I felt very at ease with all who listened and met my needs

February 18, 2013

As I stated earlier, Dr. Eliason if very thorough and courteous. He listens before giving advice and he invites questions.

I have recommend him to friends and family

January 18, 2013

January 01, 2013

The medication worked remarably well and problem was cleared up in less than one week. I had been dealing with it for more than three months.

December 31, 2012

Mark is thorough, but concise. Thoughtful and respectful. I recommend him to everyone!

December 29, 2012

Dr. seemed hurried,exam somewhat perfunctory...feel that he could have been more thorough, especially considering he was doing an initial exam.

December 03, 2012

November 25, 2012

I recommend Dr. Eliason and his staff to everyone I know.

November 21, 2012

Working with Dr. Eliason and his staff is always informative and interesting. He answers my questions well, and I learn a lot. He and his staff (Amber(?) as noted earlier) are exceptional. This page of the survey loads incredibly slowly; I can work on my dishes while it loads.

November 05, 2012

The Doctor was so friendly and very good at addressing all my concerns. He asked me multiple times if I understood which shows me he really cares about his patients. The best part is that he was concerned about how much the products cost as well. He understands that people aren't made of money and wants to get them the best and most affordable treatment he offers. Very impressed.

November 01, 2012

Dr. Eliason has the best bedside manner of any physician I've seen. He explained exactly what he was doing throughout the procedure and took the time to make sure he answered all of my questions before he left. Further, my wife, who is a surgeon, stated that he did a fantastic job closing the wound. Three days after the procedure, it's healing very nicely.

May 01, 2012

Again, there are a number of capable Dermatologists in Montana ( our former home) and in Phoenix (our current home). But from the time I went to Huntsman in 2007, then to the Dermatology Clinic and started seeing Dr. Eliason, there is NO question in my mind where I will continue to go for " skin issues". It's worth the trip. He is great.

February 15, 2012

February 13, 2012

The doctors and staff members treat me very well, and answer my questions perfectly. I really enjoy a bit of humor in my day.

Dr. Eliason is always very friendly and personable. He makes eye contact when speaking to me and when I speak to him. He truly listens and hears my concerns and my questions.
