after i had to wait around 2 hours in the office to see the doctor. He told me i need to get MRI. His staff told me they will call my insurance to get approval. After that, for 3 weeks ikept calling almost every 4 days to see what happens and they keep telling me we will call you back in a half hour, but they never did. So I called them and told them to delete my files because i will never come back there

Very uncomfortable appointment, Dr. Elias suggested I change my health insurance plan to cater to my thigh injury which he immediately assessed as requiring surgery. I was fine 3 weeks later with a little physical therapy.

What an incredible experience. Dr. Elias saw me on a bit of short notice the first visit. I broke three ribs recently, and it's really hard to figure out what type of specialist you need to see for that type ofinjury. He really went above and beyond the call of duty in fitting me into his schedule, to even seeing me his very first appointment one day when I was in tremendous discomfort. He is incredibly knowledgeable, and even more personable. I would highly recommend him to anyone in and around the Chicagoland area. I wish I met him a few years earlier, as high school and college sports have given me the pleasure of seeing in total about 8 orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists and chiropractors. I will 100% be using Dr.Elias for all of my and my families orthopedic needs in the future!
