I went to see Dr. Elman due to a hand injury at work. He was very brief with me suggesting I get an emg test for the nerves. I asked him what I should do for working and he kept on saying “I don’t know.” I went and got a second opinion from another Doctor and I was diagnosed with 6 hand and arm injuries. I learned a lesson to do my research before I see a doctor. I would not suggest Dr. Elman.

Not what I expected. Disappointing. Maybe surgery is his thing. Also got the impression I was not believed and was dismissed to another suggested venue. Is it because I am a older female. Who knows. Glad others has successfully had improvements. The office staff are cold unfriendly, unprofessional

Dr. Elman did a perfect surgery on my knee. Very creative in his approach which addressed several issues in one surgery. I was suffering in pain and he completely relieved my pain immediately following the surgery. I am thrilled and will always return to his practice for any if I have any future need. Thank you Dr. Elman.

Dr. Elman is a fantastic surgeon. He operated on my elderly mother's badly broken wrist and she was almost back to normal a week later. Stitches out, just a small bandage left, no cast. Simply amazing.
