After four failed surgeries on my left shoulder I was given the recommendation to see Dr. Elhassan. Let me tell you that was the best recommendation I ever got. He is a first class surgeon. I highly recommend him. His bed side manner is excellent.

Dr Elhassan eased my daughter's fears of her imminent shoulder surgery. He has a kind way about him. He explained the procedure to me and then explained it in language my 12-year-old could understand.

Dr. Elhassan changed the quality of life for me. The time, care, and compassion he has is impeccable. His bed side manner is awesome. If you have any orthopedic surgery where this man is an option you would be wise to pick him. I can heap enough compliments on this man.
