At first I was nervous as I had heard and read about long term outcomes of the surgery, but I'm extremely please with the result and procedure.

Dr Elist came highly recommended, including from the many reviews I had read online. My situation was a result of complications from a previous condition, which I came to find out, was something not all urologists fully understood or had experience in. Dr Elist is simply one of the best urologists in Southern California, do your own research

My experience with Dr. Elist for penile implant surgery was terrific and I can't be happier than I am.
in Long Beach, CA |
Came to Dr. Elist for some prostate issues I believed I was having. It actually turned out to be something totally different, that I'm a little shy to speak about. But I would like to let others know that Dr. Elist is super knowledgeable and goes above n beyond for his patients. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a quality Urologist.

Dr Elist and his team have changed my life, and will forever really know how much they have blessed me.
in Los Angeles, CA |
My experience with Dr. Elist and all of his staff and other doctors? has been exceptionally positive. I have had three other elective surgeries, all of which I have been happy with, but my outcome with this procedure has actually surpassed my expectations. I am extremely thankful for everyone making me feel comfortable here. The only improvement that I can think of to be made perhaps would be in better instruction on finding the surgery center. I did get a little lost there, but other than that,

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
