Dr. Elkousy took the time to explain what my diagnosis was and he relayed the information to Dr Stocks. I received the call from Dr Stocks the next day. I was grateful for the quick response from both doctors to my situation. I was thankful not to wait long. This was such a treat and was grateful.

Dr. Elkousy is an amazing doctor. He is very knowledgable and he is patient and kind. He listens and talks with his patients. I have been seeing Dr. Elkousy for several years for knee and shoulder problems. I never have to wait, his staff are all very attentive and knowledgable. Knowing that his staff have all been with him for many years says a lot about him. I highly recommend him for Knee and shoulder problems.

Not a friendly man on first impression. Never examined me, just went by what he saw on the x-rays. His nurse always seemed in a rush to get me off the phone, although she IS faithful about returning calls. I got another referral.

Dr Elkousy had Excellent Bed side manners / He gave me several options in reference to my knee pain & prevention. He Didn’t recommend surgery right away. Dr Elkousy is very laid back doc / listened to all my concerns & needs / we were able to reach a solution that better fit my needs & lifestyle. I would definitely refer him to my fam & friends

The Very Best! This man was born to be a surgeon. He and his PA, Jui Zumwalt make a great team. Both are excellent communicators. Both are kind, caring and extremely intelligent. Dr. Elkousy does not rush you or push you into a decision. I first saw him in 2015, and it was clear that I needed a shoulder replacement. Seven other orthopedic surgeons had told me the same thing. Yet I never felt 100% comfortable with any of them and kept moving on for a new opinion. In 2015, Dr. Elkousy knew I needed a shoulder replacement, but he honestly shared with me that he thought I was too young at 55. He bought me some time with arthroscopic surgery, debriding my shoulder area. Six years later, at age 61, I knew it was time for the replacement. Now, thanks to Dr. Elkousy, I am able to look forward with a better quality of health without the chronic pain that had once been a constant in my life.

I had no wait time at all. My X-rays were done promptly. Dr. Took his time explaining the X-rays & recommendations for treatment. Though I may not have loved the diagnosis I am thankful I choose the right doctor. I would highly recommend Dr.Elkousy & his team.
