Doctor Elliot Reid is a former attending physician alongside J.D. and Turk at Sacred Heart in Scrubs and is played by Sarah Chalke. Elliot is very close with J.D. and has an off-and-on again relationship with J.D. throughout the series. She has also dated several other characters including Sacred Heart doctor Keith Dudemesiter, to who she was engaged to and later broke off the engagement.
Elliot later went into private practice where she was able to make much more money, but still work at Sacred Heart but no longer have to respond to Dr. Cox or Dr. Kelso.
Elliot is extremely insecure and very socially awkward. She, though is attractive, and slowly becoming more confident throughout the seasons.
Elliot: I don't think you understand the severity of the situation here! I am dangerously close to giving up men altogether!
Dr. Cox: And on behalf of men everywhere - and I do mean everywhere, including the ones in the little mud huts - let me be the first to say thanks and halleluia!
Turk: Let's think about some of the great girls you let slip through your fingers. Kylie, Jamie, Gift Shop Girl, Mini McSkinny, Mole Butt, Tina Two-Kids, Rumple Fugly...I'm forgetting someone...
Carla's narration: Oh my god Turk, if you forget Elliot she's going to cry.
Carla: Turk, aren't you forgetting the greatest girl of them all? (Discretely gesturing at a dejected Elliot)
Turk: (Snaps) Heidi Horseface!
Elliot: Me! Turk, she is talking about me, ok!?
J.D.: Relax, Elliot, you're Mole Butt.
Elliot: Really? (Becomes happy) Sorry Turk.
