I had a fall and needed an evaluation for multiple orthopedic impacts including my hip replacements. I was able to get an appointment quickly and a thorough assessment and treatment plan was recommended that might use a newer product to prevent future complications from severe bone bruising. Always the best treatment and bedside manner. Dr is always anticipating and addressing concerns appropriately even when I am not able to articulate them.

Dr. Elbaz was great! He spent the time to go over my X-rays and explain my condition. He answered any questions or concerns that I had. The treatment prescribed for my shoulder pain was very effective. He is a good doctor and a very nice man. I went to see him on recommendation from another friend. I am glad I went. Everyone there was very professional and courteous.

I am a retired ballerina requiring hip joint replacement. Meeting with Dr. Elbaz was the tonic I needed in order to address my specific hip issues. He is fantastic! Personable, great humor, attention to detail, an artist. He treats each patient as a unique case whereas my previous doctor treated all hip cases the same. Elbaz gets excited by each patient's case and applies the latest techniques and components gleaned from annual study in Paris. I trust him, like him, enjoy him completely.

Dr. Elbaz is a conscientious doctor, he is concerned about his patients and their recovery. Dr Elbaz takes the time to answer any concerns and questions I have about my scheduled surgery and afterwards any questions about PT and recovery. He makes you feel at ease and his manner is reassuring and he is just a very nice person.

Dr. Elbaz has given excellent treatment with outstanding results using adipose stem cells for my knees, as well as PRP and related injections. The results have been remarkable, and surpassed all my expectations. His bedside manner is a joy and my visits to him are always a welcomed experience. His staff are both friendly as well as very professional in all aspects. Top notch Medical Group!

Dr. Elbaz has been treating my shoulder for five years. In that time he has worked diligently to find alternatives to surgery to minimize all the downsides of a surgical repair. I appreciate that he takes the time to explore alternatives that minimize recovery even when it means less money for him. I wouldn’t go to anyone else!

I am a 68 year old female, moderately active. My primary care doctor recommended Dr. Elbaz to evaluate my right shoulder pain. Everything about my care - from the first visit was exceptional. I did have surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff. My surgical experience and the subsequent follow up visits were exceptional as well. My shoulder has healed and I have full use of it. There is no question I would recommend him to others and there's no one else I'd consider.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Elbaz. I have been going to him since 2010 (2 hip replacements) and not only is he a great surgeon, he is also very personable and friendly. Good staff, also.

Dr Elbaz cares! He's done my rotator cuff & repaired my broken humerus. His bedside manner is perfect. Does great work, & follows up for as long as it takes. He's like a dad to me not just a Dr. If you follow his advice & therapy I can bet you'll heal better than before. He's the best shoulder Dr I've ever met.

I saw Dr. Elbaz who diagnosed an injury to my left knee as a meniscus tear. Dr. Elbaz advised that he thought the tear could be repaired with physical therapy. After a second opinion from another surgeon who insisted it could not be repaired with physical therapy and I would have to have surgery. I heeded Dr. Elbaz's recommendation to do the physical therapy and it worked. The tear completely healed and the use of my knee was returned to normal.

As a nurse practitioner I am very careful who I choose as my doctor. I always research the doctor's background and awards, but most of all I ask other nurses and doctors. I have been a patient of Dr. Elbaz for 5 years for hip arthritis which recently caused severe pain and hip replacement. Dr. Elbaz has extensive experience and expertise in anterior hip replacement which has a fast recovery. I have recovered and am active without pain! He has a great personality, and is friendly and supportive.

You did my Right Hip Replacement 9 years ago in Cypress Texas. It is still great. No problem. However my Left Hip needs replacement. I live in Henderson Nevada. I am seeing Dr Rick Woodworth. I am planing to have my left hip replaced 28 April. I hope the procedure is as successful as your. Any words of wisdom? John Kent 281 796 1183 Born Montreal: December 05, 1942 Johnadamkentsr@att.net

I was so impressed with Katika Gonzalez, her ease of scheduling, contacting my insurance company and her knowledge made me feel very comfortable with all my questions, and there were a lot. Everything was seamless when all the scheduling was done. I left the office without any questions and above all a piece of mind.
