I like that Dr Elia spent time with me rather than an assistant for most of the visit, not my experience at larger groups

Dr. Elia is the absolute BEST orthopedic specialist in the Philadelphia surrounding area. I have gone to him a few times with horrible pain in both knees and when I say that he gave me my life back, believe every word! In addition to being the best in his field, he is also very nice, patient, and really cares about how his patients are treated. I have been going to Dr. Elia for several years now and always recommend him to others.

I saw Dr. Elia just yesterday to have him look at my chronic hip problem. For never having met him before, my experience was awesome! His demeanor with me was wonderful. After my exam he discussed my options in terms that were fully understandable, and I left knowing what the course of action would be and with total confidence in Dr. Elia.

Dr.Elia did a great job. He wrapped me up in a new cast and gave me a workable timeline for my fractured wrist. The staff was very professional and friendly. Gina did a very thorough job getting my Workers Comp papers ready. Very professional practice. Highly recommended.

Had my fourth joint (a knee) replaced by Dr. Elia in August and my recovery has been remarkable. Dr. Elia is very personable, caring, responsive to all concerns, but more importantly he is an outstanding surgeon. I placed my trust in him from the first appointment and felt confident in moving forward with a knee replacement, a decision I had put off for over two years. Joint replacement is a scary commitment, but the changes in the quality of life after the surgery are simply amazing!!

Dr. Elia is by far the best a patient could ask for. The doctor has changed my life for the better with a complete left knee replacement three years ago. You'll never find a better doctor to help you out with your problems, go see him at your first chance.
