Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Dr Elguizaoui is an excellent doctor who’s committed to his patients health and well being. The process of recovering from an injury can be challenging and having someone who’s extremely caring and professional makes the entire process that much easier. Highly recommend him as an orthopedic doctor.

Dr. Elguizaoui operated on my broken arm in Mid-2020 and was phenomenal throughout the whole process. He did a great job at calming my anxiety (my first--and hopefully last--time breaking anything) and was very good about detailing out the various treatment options I could pursue and considerations for those treatments. Highly recommend.

During the height of the COVID pandemic in May, I injured my arm. I called NY Orthopedics, and told them I heard a loud popping sound and could barely lift my arm. They set me up with Doctor Elguizaoui the next day. He diagnosed that I had ruptured my biceps tendon; which was confirmed by the MRI. His clear explanation of of why I needed surgery as soon as possible to prevent further damage helped me to understand my choices. He even took the time to explained to my wife over the phone (since she couldn't be in the office due to COVID) what my treatment options were. The process of navigating the healthcare system during COVID was handled by the office staff, and the surgery was set up within a week of the MRI confirming the rupture. The surgery was successful. Four (4) months removed, and after undergoing the required physical therapy sessions; my arm feels normal again. All throughout the process (from initial visit to final post surgery follow-up), Dr. E was clear, concise, and con

I found Dr. Elguizaoui online because I broke my arm and needed to see an orthopedist with availability ASAP. I feel so lucky to have found him just based on good reviews and that he happened to have an opening the following day. He explained everything clearly, listened to me, answered my questions, didn't rush, and provided excellent treatment. Highly recommended!

Dr. Elguizaoui, or "Doc" as I call him, is absolutely amazing. Not only is he an impressive surgeon but he has incredible bedside manner. I broke a bone in my knee earlier this year from a skiing accident and he was absolutely incredible throughout the pre/post surgery experience. He was extremely responsive and accessible for any and all of my pre/post op questions, big or small. This made me feel at ease as I had never experienced such an injury before. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends and family!

Explained optional surgery to me, all the risks and rewards, with which I proceeded with tremendous results. Total success. Thoughtful and careful follow-up. Knows his stuff. Knows and treats his patient, not just the injuries or problems.

Dr. Elguizaoui was extremely empathetic to my goal to stay active (running, hiking etc). His approach combined standard and more advanced pioneering procedures in sports medicine which optimized my outcomes, getting me back to the activities I love as fast as possible. He is a great guy with a fun sense of humor and attentive bedside manner.

I was seen by Dr. Elguizaoui in Lenox Hill emergency department after a bad fall. I dislocated my shoulder and no one was successful in putting it back into place. Dr. Elguizaoui was on call and came in special and was amazing. He was able to do what the others couldn't and was not giving up until it was put back into place. He has an amazing bed side manner and I would recommend him to anyone! I had a great experience during a very painful and difficult time.
