Very caring doctor awesome staff

Dr. Elkersh and the staff at Advanced Pain are wonderful. If you are looking for someone to help with interventional pain relief, he is a great candidate for the job.

Dr. Elkersh is an excellent doctor. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for pain relief.

I would not recommend him to my worst enemy. He installed a spinal cord stimulator after I told him that I did not have complete pain relief during the trial period & that it I hoped that it would get better. Spinal cord stimulators are not to be completely installed unless there is complete pain relief. All he is worried about is making money by doing procedures that are not needed by every patient. His response when he is spoken to in medical terminology is appalling. See him at your own risk!
I have not implanted spinal cord stimulator for quite some time and for that reason I am not quite sure about your concerns. If these comments are false please remove your review if it is not please contact myself or the practice administrator.

I have had chronic migraines for many years. Dr Elkersh listened to my symptoms and recommended treatment options that I was comfortable with. He completed procedures in conjunction with his nurse practitioner Ashley, that we agreed on and he had great bedside manner. I am headache free for the first time in years and able to live a normal life. I am very grateful to him and his staff!
Dr. Elkersh and his entire staff went out their way to provide me with the best care and pain relief. I will recommend him who needs pain relief.
Dr. Elkersh has greatly improved my quality of life. My first visit, I could barely walk and after several epidurals and medication management my pain level has dropped drastically. I would definitely recommend anyone in pain to see Dr. Elkersh. My experience in his office has made pain as pleasant as it can be. Out of 5 stars, I would give Advanced Pain Institute ten stars! Dr. Elkersh is a very knowledgeable, understanding, and a reasonable doctor

Dr. Elkersh is a great doctor. Not only did he help me achieve relief of my pain he spent time to explain everything to me. I would recommend him and his team to anyone.

in Hammond |
Dr. Elkersh thank you so much for being so patient explaining to me my diagnosis. Dealing with pain issues has been very difficult and depressing and you have given me hope. I appreciate all the help you have given me. Thank you.
in Hammond, La |
Worst possible bedside manner. Will not discuss problems with patient or adequately review regimen for pain relief. Select another MD if you can. Will never go back again!
in Hammond, LA |
