After being diagnosed with breast cancer 4 years ago, I was sent to Dr Elkwood to discuss reconstruction. The care I received from him and his entire staff (I love you, Katie!) was phenomenal! I couldn't have gotten through it without his sense of humor, and everyone's kindness and concern. He is truly a great surgeon and everything went perfectly. I can't say thank you enough for everything.

I highly recommend Dr. Elkwood to anyone with any condition . He is an amazing person also , personality is also intriguing. He has given me the confidence to know that he has gotten to the bottom of my condition after umpteen Doctors did nothing. I can't thank him enough except to highly recommend him of which I do daily and also to his staff , who were all professionals at their jobs.

I suffered with pain for two years, each doctor said, "it was referred pain from my back". I went to see Dr. Elkwood and within 5 minutes he diagnosed my condition. I had microsurgery in June, and I am recovering well. Dr. Elkwood's nurse , Katie, checked on me weekly; I truly felt she cared about my recovery. All of the staff are kind and caring. Dr. Elkwood is not only an awesome surgeon, he is very kind, patient, and caring. Thank you for helping me. Karol

I had a breast augmentation surgery performed by Dr. Elkwood about two months and I couldn't be happier. He is not only compassionate, but he had so much patience answering all of my questions and concerns (I had A LOT) before and after the surgery. Dr. Elkwood's staff at The Plastic Surgery center is courteous and very helpful. His nurse Katie is just as amazing as Dr. Elkwood, I would seriously call her multiple times a week questions and she was always kind and helpful. Great experience!
in Oceanport, NJ |
After my breast cancer diagnosis, a double mastectomy with Tram flap reconstruction was very intimidating for me and caused me anxiety and fear. Dr. Andrew Elkwood and his staff at immediately calmed my fears and eased me through the decision making process and actual procedures. Dr. Elkwood explained my options in terms I could easily understand and always treated me with confidence, humor and compassion. His expertise and staff are second to none. I am thrilled with the final result.
