Dr. Simon Reid is the father of Elliot Reid.


Simon Reid is a medical doctor and the Chief of Medicine at St. Augustine's in Greenwich, Connecticut. His influence resulted in all his offspring wanting to become doctors. Elliot recounts him taking her to the hospital at age eleven and having "complicated" sexual emotions. ("My Quarantine") Simon wanted Elliot to be a boy, thus the reason naming her a boy's name. ("My First Day")

On his first visit to Sacred Heart Reid sparks an almost instant antipathy with Dr Kelso, something which is obvious to J.D. but which Elliot remains blissfully unaware off. ("My Old Man")

Simon pressured Elliot into the OB-GYN field with which she disagreed, but he felt entitled to get what he wanted because he paid for all of her schooling and her current living expenses. After her refusal, Simon cut her off financially. ("My Fruit Cups")
