He is very articulate, took time talking with me before the exam and during the exam to explain. I am very happy I picked him. Believe the 5 star reviews! I did and am very happy I did.

Wonderful doctor! Have seen him for the last two years due to knee issues and he and the staff was super friendly and helpful, he went over all options benefits and risks of each. Will answer any questions you have and try’s everything possible before surgery. Definitely not a doctor who’s in it just for the money or tries to push you out the door.

Dr. Elkousy is too busy and distracted to care to for patients. His entrance was behind a tall monitor on wheels that he maneuvered like a shield. He made only a cursory evaluation of my MRI with report, and he missed examining the X-ray disc altogether. No matter, he lectured me from a textbook, then he quickly left as if being pulled out of the room by the crazy monitor on wheels. The sloppy staff was so eager to move me along that they gave me another patient's disc as well.

I was not impressed with the doctor or his staff; everything was rushed despite being 15 minutes early for my appt, no bedside manner, no time took to thoroughly answer questions, & few options offered except to quit all vigorous activities. His PA was rude and added no value. I was supposed to be given a PT referral along with PT exercises for my knee but nothing was given, and when asked they had no idea what I was talking about. They forgot to give me back my MRI disc so I had to return.

I went from not being able to walk more than a couple blocks without pain, to running again in no time! Highly recommend his abilities as a surgeon, as well as his advice towards a speedy recovery.
