    How was your appointment with Dr. Elaraj?

    Apr 14, 2022
    My fiance saw Dr Elaraj for what ultimately became a parathyroidectomy. I didnt meet her before the surgery, but my fiance raved about her knowledge, ability to explain in plain English, and her empathy. After meeting her day-of surgery, I couldn't agree more. After feeling total uneasy by the idea of leaving him in the OR, I felt a great sense of comfort knowing he was in good hands after speaking with her. And post-surgery she called me with a fantastic update, educated me on the next steps, and even explained an interesting finding she had during surgery and encouraged us to watch out. Wholeheartedly recommend.
