Dr. Zelouf was the best doc to treat my bilateral injuries caused by bicycle accident. He made me whole - outstanding surgery to repair shattered elbow & PT for broken fingers. I truly appreciate his compassion and kindness during the entire 3 month process. He was always available for questions. His office staff, Bridget & Jillian, make every patient feel welcome. Paoli hand therapists, Teri & Lauren, worked hard to get me back to 100% - not to mention the fun they added to the rehab visits.

Dr. Zelouf is amazing! I had a rotational break of my left ring finger. Dr. Zelouf provided detail of my injury and the therapy I would be performing. He was able to get me into surgery the next day to add two screws into my finger. I was very happy at my follow up appointment as my finger looks and feels great!! Dr. Zelouf and his staff were very professional and I would highly recommend Dr. Zelouf who brings many years of experience and dedication to his field.

I was in a car accident and suffered a compound fracture of my risk and dislocated my thumb. I was taken to Paoli Hospital. I feel very fortunate that Dr Zelouf was on call. I had surgery to repair my injuries within hours after the accident. Dr Zelouf stepped in and reassured me that he could fix my injuries. My surgery went well and I did not have any complications. T[he hand center PT group helped me through a long and painful recouperation. Thank you Dr Zelouf!

Worst doctor I have ever seen! Rude, mean and worst of all incompetent! If he can't figure out your problem then he dismisses your pain and tells you to live with it. Very judgemental and obtuse. Stay away!

My wrist was shattered in a fall from a ladder onto a concrete floor - Humpty Dumpty was in better shape than my wrist. Dr. Z saw me the same day and did surgery the next morning. In an outpatient surgical setting - a wonderful orderly place with warm and friendly nurses - come in the morning go home in the afternoon with your completely shattered wrist put expertly back together. The only good news when you're injured is finding your way to good care. You'll find the best of care here.

Dr Zelouf was calming, reassuring, and quickly earned my confidence in his professional expertise. I will strongly recommend him to anyone I know who is in need of his care.

Six and a half years ago Dr. Zelouf did surgery on My Husbands wrist and it was a successful surgery. I liked the way he took care of my Husband, so I had full confidence in going to him for carpal tunnel surgery. I had both hand done and Dr. Zelouf was very up front with about the surgery, what to expect and possible out comes. I would like to say that the pain I had in my hands and arms is gone, and I am able to do things that I could before the issues began.

Dr. Zelouf did a tremendous job repairing a very badly broken right thumb on my 14 year old son in June 2016. He was very candid, and to the point, from the first visit/exam, through surgery and final exam. We are very appreciative and thankful for his expertise. My son is back in the lacrosse cage doing what he loves most. Great success! Thank you Dr. Zelouf.
in Pocono Pines, PA |
Dr. Zelouf and his colleague Dr. Grant Seidon were very thorough in their examination and were conservative in their approach to my left hand issues. I was very satisfied with their care during the office visit. I would recommend them both and would return as any hand issues arise in the future. Thank you Dr. Zelouf!!
in Warminster, PA |
I have to give special praise to Dr. Zelouf for his accurate diagnosis excellent surgical approach and fine surgical techniques. Not only I experienced no pain with the surgery but also my wrist heals very nicely. My son, a plastic surgeon is very impressed with how nice the closure looks. His whole office staff members in the Philadelphia Hand Center are wonderful people also. Gina, Jill, Stephanie all treated me very nice with respect. I was always anxiously looking forward to every visit.

Dr. Zelouf is the man to go to for hand surgery. I broke my right hand in a fall. Dr. Zelouf saw me within a week. A true healthcare professional with a great heart. Surgery was fine, uneventful. Most importantly, I have full use of my right hand today. Thank you Dr. Zelouf.
in Freehold, NJ |
No bed side manner. I am only 18 years old and after my surgery he forgot to come check up on me, and forgot to tell my mother that my surgery was over and how it went. His initial guess on which surgery I needed was incorrect, and he did a very poor job explaining to me what exactly happened. He is unclear whilst explaining things, and unless you ask a lot of questions, you aren't going to get much information out of him. He also forgot to tell me to take biotin after my surgery. STAY AWAY!

I had the right hand and then the left hand carpal tunnel surgery done in the fall of 2015. Had the classic symptoms for over one year before the surgeries - numbness in hands & pain at night while sleeping which caused me to sleep with both hands over the side of the bed. Symptoms disappeared immediately after each surgery. Everything in the process went as it should from the initial appointment to the follow up visit a week after each operation. This is as it should be!
in Secane, PA |
I met Dr. Zelouf two years ago to treat carpal tunnel in my right hand. He took the time to diagnose my injury and explore treatment options. His surgery technique had me back to work in thirteen days. Recently, I had my left hand done, and expect the same results. It was worth the trip from my Delco home to his King of Prussia office for treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Zelouf and the PHC staff ! Bravo !

The highest compliment a doctor can get is when the OR staff that works closely with all the hand surgeons chooses one doctor consistently to do their surgery. The OR nurses and doctors choose Dr Zelouf for their surgeon. One of the reasons is that he is very meticulous about his surgeries. He goes above and beyond to make sure the area is cleaned, proper technique is used from start to finish.He's known as one of the best surgeons in the country. Feel comfortable you have the best surgeon!!

Because of a fall, I broke two bones in my right wrist which did not heal properly when under the care of another orthopedist. I was referred to Dr, Zelouf and as soon as he saw my wrist he told me I needed surgery as soon as possible, Under his care I underwent over 3 1/2 hours of surgery to correct my problem. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome, I now have no pain, good range of motion and dexterity and my wrist is straight again. Thank you, Dr. Zelouf.

Dr Zelouf is both kind and professional. He scheduled my appointments and procedure in a timely manner. He answered my questions and explained things clearly. I would definitely recommend Dr Zelouf. .
