Paula and Kiara. They always do an outstanding job
August 14, 2021
Kiara is an excellent provider. Asante's My Chart still needs it's service streamlined. The office staff have improved since a couple years ago. But could still use some work...nothing glaring, though.

Kiara Elkin is very knowledgeable and informed about the status of my emotional health. A recent change to a different medication has proven to be extremely helpful.
June 21, 2021
Kiara has always shown an ability to understand my issues and shown a great deal of knowledge regarding the appropriate medications that are discussed as options.
June 17, 2021
Paula is awesome getting messages back to me. Victoria is great at taking my novel of what I'm trying to say and getting to the point messages to Kiara. Kiara is instrumental in my care and allowing me to have a voice with my own care. She has yet to disagree, and when she does, she does it with compassion and care. She always follows up with why. She doesn't just say what she's going to do without saying why, and I appreciate that.

The convenience of online appointments when no physical procedures are necessary.

A genuine concern about my health issues.
April 27, 2021
Dr. Elkin was definitely outstanding. She has encouraged me to do the best I can with my mental health, while reminding me that my limitations do not define me. She has also presented multiple options for care when I felt like there weren't any.

I'm not sure if her name, but the assistant who called just prior to my appointment time.

March 22, 2021
The virtual visit wouldn't work so Kiara made the time to see me in person.
March 13, 2021
Kiera is always excellent and the person scheduling is also great. Telephone/video sessions are not very helpful for the most part.

January 26, 2021
Kiara Elkin is the most amazing mental health provider!! She is caring, empathetic, and non judgmental. She always makes me feel comfortable to discuss private and sensitive personal health information. She spends as much time at each appointment as is needed to me feel heard. I think of her as my partner in my mental health care. I highly recommend her to everyone! I cannot say enough good things about Kiara and Asante Behavioral Health.
January 25, 2021
Kiara - I don't know if it's my end or hers, but the audio doesn't work. She calls me, and we talk on the phone while looking at each other in the screen. I love thatTysha - she's beyond sweet, listens to everything I say, and asks questions to make sure she understands what I'm saying to get the message correct. Very punctual and goes above and beyond to get patients the correct care
January 25, 2021
Kiara's, medical assistant, I can't remember her name right now.?? She is always so pleasant and cheerful when I go in to see Kiara. And when talking to her on the phone she does what she says she gets an answer and calls me back right away. I'm very happy with the care I get.
January 21, 2021
Kiara is so nice. She's the fourth person I've seen there and is amazing. She seems to really care about me and truly listens. Office help is always polite, nice and caring.
January 15, 2021
All of the staff, for understanding and responding appropriately to a person with cognitive challenges. Kudos in particular to the scheduling staff. Oh the things I've put them through.
January 08, 2021
Kiara is very patient with me. I'm not the easiest person to deal with, however she never ends our sessions without some really positive feedback on what we've discussed. I don't leave there feeling like a jerk. It's really what keeps me going back.
January 03, 2021
Always listens to EVERYTHING I have to say, and responds. So far pretty close to walking on water! Both my husband and I feel very comfortable with her. Actually she makes me feel very calm, Puts me very much at ease. Looking forward to my next visit.
December 21, 2020
My doctor and her staff are excellent. When I went to the office they made me feel comfortable assured that my confidentiality was important to them. They were all very caring listen to my concerns and treated me with respect. My doctor was very informative and tuned to what I was saying. And when I left her office the very first time I felt assured that my health and well-being was her top priority.
December 11, 2020
Kiara Elkin is a full on professional and had a handle on the aspects of my condition with ease. She knew about drug payments plans and easily ordered prescription refills. There wasa glkitch, at one time earlier, over connecting to the front office over some complicated details but it got straightened out well. I trust Kiara Elkin. [NAME]
December 10, 2020
Kiara and Tysha. I've never had someone so prompt, caring, and respectful.
December 03, 2020
I had an appointment also with Nurse Practitioner Kendra [ ] and this was a very good visit as well. Kiara is also a thorough practitioner.
November 26, 2020
I love the entire staff at the behavioral health clinic. They listen carefully, are positive and caring. Thank you.
November 05, 2020
Kiara was always helpful
November 02, 2020
Kiara Elkin is an excellent provider. She makes you feel heard, understood, never judged- in a calm, supportive environment. She takes as much time with you as you need. She always reviews any medication changes, home instructions, and next appointment scheduling before you go. I have had several tele-health appointments with Kiara and I really appreciate having the ability to do so- I live 45-55 minutes away from the Behavioral Health office and I work 12 hour shifts. My ability to drive to an appointment every month is taxing.
November 01, 2020
Kiara is great. She understands me
October 19, 2020
Kiara really helped me get the right dosage and manage my meds...a compassionate expert.
October 16, 2020
Kiara was excellent helping me over the phone, both in emotional support and helping me plan future health care. I don't know the name of the person I talked with at her office but she was most helpful and was very upbeat, it was refreshing
October 16, 2020
Kiara is great. I have confidence in here knowledge of pharmaceuticals and feel that she makes sure I have the best options to choose from.

Of course, Kiara. But, also, Dr [ ].
September 17, 2020
The entire Asante Rehab team. Everyone was wonderful. The one name I remember is Molly. Wonderful and caring.
September 03, 2020
The support Dr. Kiara is giving me is essential for me during this difficult time I am having. I don't open up always but with her I have been able to do so which is great because I don't have any family member or friend I could talk to. Sad but true.Thank you so very much.
