If you are going to do that, make sure you use the versioning support in order not to need to refresh. Get the doc, change it, and index it back with the version received from the get operation. A conflict will be raised if it has been updated in the meantime (or since the last refresh ran).

Thanks for the info Clint.
I don't have a ton of fields for each document, so your advise of
retrieving from ES and then reindexing is what I'm going to try first.

I did some searching and found a couple threads that were similar, but
not exactly what I'm trying to do. I would like to update one field of
an existing document and reindex this new value of the field while
keeping all existing fields the same. Is this possible?
I'm afraid you have to reindex the whole document. That said, you
already have the full source for the document stored in ES, so you could
retrieve that, update the single field, then reindex it.
You might also want to look at parent/child relationships as that was
introduced specifically to get around having to reindex whole documents.
