What People Say About Dr. Benjamin Elder, MD
Reply
Dr. Elder did my back surgery August 8th of 2018. At the time I could hardly walk 100', without resting, or go up stairs. At 74 my body is not the same as a young man; however, I am able to do 95% of what I did before the back issues. I am very grateful to Dr. Elder and hope my wife will be able to see him should she need surgery. His prognosis for recovery was right on. Thank you Dr Elder. JBV
