Once I started asking around, I learned he is the ‘go-to’ guy for anything to do with feet and ankles. His humbleness and simplicity in explaining things comforted me.

My son is now beginning outpatient physical therapy, and he is doing well. Your wonderful staff helped a traumatic experience be much less difficult because it was obvious that they really cared ... Our deepest appreciation!

Professional, skilled, courteous, and empathetic. All follow-up orthopedics, back home, saw his work and were duly impressed. I am now playing tennis again and getting ready to ski next year. Thank You, Dr. Elton!”
