Arrowhead Orthopedic Group MAY have a lot of great doctors—assuming the reviews are real—but the office would appear to be HORRIBLY managed. It took 3 months to get through to them, because no one ever returns calls, and then 3 more to get a surgical consult. I left many messages in that time. After seeing the doctor, I waited 3 months for my surgery which is scheduled in a week and last week I called 2 times to ask if I will be allowed to still go forward, because I need to treat another health condition. The asst who gave me her personal number and ASSURED me I could call her directly has not returned any of my increasingly panicked messages. I am now fearful of even having the surgery I waited so long for, knowing I have a complicated medical history, and I may not be able to reach anyone if I have a serious issue. I felt the doctor took an adequate amount of time with me, although I still had many questions. I am on the verge of cancelling now. Do I gamble with my life?

The doctor has a great personality. I absolutely loved that he prayed for me after our visit. He spoke to me in an understanding language, no heavy accent or medical jumbo jumbo,did a great job using the films to explain, and made sure I understood before leaving me. The only reason for not getting 5 stars is I had to wait 1 1/2 hours to be seen. His staff is equally as pleasant. Thank you Doc for your help.

Mom had a total knee replacement in February. Dr. Elsissy is a skilled surgeon, because her new knee works great! The incision is a work of art, almost invisible. Her recovery was smooth. His bedside manner was pleasant and kind, and he explained things, wasn't rushed. His staff was friendly and helpful. Our first appointment was just before Christmas, and at that time there were a few phone calls his office did not return. But after that hiccup, it was smooth sailing.

My first visit, I had been informed that a TKR would not work do to my weight(I weighed 350lbs). Dr.Elsissy gave me a target weight of 227lbs he said I could walk better if I wore knee braces & medication for the pain. Before I left he explained to me how important this surgery was for me. I took his words of advice, encouragement and support home with me & I took it to heart, I showed up 14 months later a few pounds under the target weight(Dr.Elsissy’s smile was amazing & humbling). He has BLESSED HANDS..!!!! Dr.Elsissy is one of the Best Doctors around, o cannot say enough about him. He’s kind and caring, he shows true concern and support for YOU as a PERSON.... Thank You Dr.Elsissy... I’ll see you in a few month for my other TKR... ??

I have had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Elsissy for a couple of years. He did both of my wife's knee replacements and she is doing GREAT. My prior orthopedic has left the practice and now I have the pleasure of having Dr Elsissy as my primary care physician for all of my orthopedic needs. Dr. Elsissy is a very caring doctor along with being through in his exams. I look forward to working with Dr. Elsissy on my orthopedic medical care.
