      Honest and truthful. Took time to listen to all the questions and unfortunately he had no answers. He was humble enough to tell us he didn't have a solution or treatment with my medical condition.
      in Brea, California |
      I have been a patient of Dr. Elas for a year and a half due to a work related injury. Dr. Ela always takes time to explain what's going on and how he will provide treatment for my particular injury. He never rushes through the examination and answers any and all questions that I have. He is very personable and sincere. I consider him one of the best doctors that I have ever had. I would highly recommend Dr Ela.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      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.
