Patricia Midcap – Jul 04, 2020

Patient

I recently had panniculectomy surgery with Dr. Elkwood to remove excess abdominal skin and fat. The results are amazing. I consider it another medical miracle in my life. Dr. Elkwood and his staff always kind and professional, taking excecptionally good care of you during every visit before and after surgery. My surgery was during Covid and this office took the highest measures to ensure your safety and confidence. I am more than pleased and so thankful.

Linda Lowery – Jul 02, 2020

Patient

I am a Breast Cancer Survivor, with ongoing issues I was recommended to see Dr. Elkwood. I needed to have a double mastectomy with reconstruction. When I first met with him he was kind caring listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions. Even with all the road blocks my body though at him he never gave up, I couldn't be more pleased with the work he did. Behind every Doctor is a great staff supporting him and I have say he has the best office staff. I would recommend Dr. Elkwood and his office staff to anyone looking for a great plastic surgery facility.

Patient

Dr Elkwood successfully corrected complicated nerve and tissue issues in my neck, shoulders, arm and hand. 2 previous surgeries conducted by other plastic surgeries had failed. I am 3 weeks post op, and under superb care from Dr Elkwood my healing is surpassing expectations with a good long term prognosis.

As a registered nurse I have watched Dr Elkwood care for his patients with respect and compassion so when I needed a physician I chose him to care for me. I was very impressed to have received his care first hand and was not disappointed. The entire staff was accommodating and professional, which made this experience a positive one.

I’m glad that I was recommended to see Dr. Elkwood. When I first met with him he was kind caring listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions. I had my breast reduction surgery a month ago and I couldn’t be happier with my decision to have Dr. Elkwood perform the surgery. The office staff and the nurses are very helpful and very nice. I continue to see Dr. Elkwood and he’s always nice and I never been rushed. I highly recommend Dr. Elkwood for all your surgical needs!!!

1 Susan Andreasi – Jul 28, 2019

Patient

I found Dr. Andrew Elkwood of The Plastic Surgery Center, to be extremely knowledgeable and professional. He always has the patient’s best interest in mind. In addition, his staff are all extremely polite, caring and personable. Doctor Elkwood performed reconstructive surgery after my double mastectomy. He took the time to explain the procedure and what to expect down the line, after my radiation treatments. He listened to all my concerns, and he never rushed me. I felt extremely safe and comfortable under his care. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Elkwood, because he is an excellent doctor.

Patient

I was very clear about my preferences for breast reconstruction. I talked about my concerns every visit prior to my surgery..In spite of that the day of my surgery Dr Elkwood make rude and belittling comments to me and gave me no confidence in my decisions. I compromised on after he told me I was chunky and needed bigger implants than I wanted. I would never recommend him to anyone.

I couldn’t be more happier with my results! Not only is Dr Elwood a perfectionist, he really cares about his patients too!

Patient

I would recommend Dr. Elkwood to anyone who is looking for an incredibly knowledgeable, skillful, dedicated surgeon. Dr. Elkwood truly cares about the patients, and I felt respected, cared for, and that I was treated as an individual. He does not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to patient care, which I deeply appreciate. I underwent a large surgery, and I felt very comfortable in Dr. Elkwood’s care. I am completely in awe of his skills- he did an incredible job! Dr. Elkwood’s staff are outstanding, incredibly prompt in returning a phone call or answering immediate questions, friendly, and so knowledgable. Dr. Elkwood and The Plastic Surgery Center staff are top notch!

My body was a mess from breast cancer and a perforated colon in my stomach and Dr. Elkwood put me back together. He put fat into my Lump ectomy breast and gave me a beautiful stomach. I feel whole again. Outstanding Doctor. breast .

1 1 Michelle Keyes – Oct 15, 2018

Patient

Because of his level of integrity and skill, Dr Elkwood informed me that he would not perform reconstructive surgery on me unless I received certain test results from my nephrologist and urologist. He did not want to jeopardize the results of eight prior surgeries I had since childhood, which left me with abdominal scars and tissue growth, and a severely disfigured abdomen. Happily, Dr Elkwood was able to perform reconstructive surgery on me. I am amazed at the results. It changed my life.

2 1 Loraine Adamo in Middletown , NJ – Oct 08, 2018

Patient

I suffer from radiation nerve damage coming out of my brachial plexus effecting my left arm and hand. This caused complete numbness and I loss all function. In comes Doctor Elkwood! You will not find another Doctor as knowledgeable in his field a long with making cutting edge strides in the field of nerve grafting and regeneration. He has an amazing staff within his office and surgical center. He is respected in all the major hospitals in the area and patient's come for all over the globe.

Patient

I went for a consultation for a nerve procedure and wanted to use the Dr. until I was brought back to the finance office and told that there is a new policy is to charge 15,000 if you have out of network benefits. I believe every doctor needs to be compensated but charging this and then taking the out of network money from insurance is unethical. This was for s medical procedure not cosmetic. This Dr. might be good, but this policy should be changed.

Patient

How much is a functioning lung worth? There are no words anywhere near good enough to explain the profound change in my life and the extreme gratitude I have for Dr Kaufman and Dr Elkwood. I had a totally paralyzed right diaphragm and had only about 40% normal breathing capacity overall. I just had the Phrenic Nerve surgery and now my lung functions. Unbelievable.

1 Bridget R. in Toms River, NJ – Dec 01, 2016

Patient

After being diagnosed with breast cancer 4 years ago, I was sent to Dr Elkwood to discuss reconstruction. The care I received from him and his entire staff (I love you, Katie!) was phenomenal! I couldn't have gotten through it without his sense of humor, and everyone's kindness and concern. He is truly a great surgeon and everything went perfectly. I can't say thank you enough for everything.

I highly recommend Dr. Elkwood to anyone with any condition . He is an amazing person also , personality is also intriguing. He has given me the confidence to know that he has gotten to the bottom of my condition after umpteen Doctors did nothing. I can't thank him enough except to highly recommend him of which I do daily and also to his staff , who were all professionals at their jobs.

1 1 karol michaels in oakhurs nj – Aug 04, 2016

Patient

I suffered with pain for two years, each doctor said, "it was referred pain from my back". I went to see Dr. Elkwood and within 5 minutes he diagnosed my condition. I had microsurgery in June, and I am recovering well. Dr. Elkwood's nurse , Katie, checked on me weekly; I truly felt she cared about my recovery. All of the staff are kind and caring. Dr. Elkwood is not only an awesome surgeon, he is very kind, patient, and caring. Thank you for helping me. Karol

1 Fabiana Buontempo in Englishtown, NJ – Apr 01, 2016

Patient

I had a breast augmentation surgery performed by Dr. Elkwood about two months and I couldn't be happier. He is not only compassionate, but he had so much patience answering all of my questions and concerns (I had A LOT) before and after the surgery. Dr. Elkwood's staff at The Plastic Surgery center is courteous and very helpful. His nurse Katie is just as amazing as Dr. Elkwood, I would seriously call her multiple times a week questions and she was always kind and helpful. Great experience!

5 1 Ronelle Maher in Oceanport, NJ – Jan 02, 2016

Patient

After my breast cancer diagnosis, a double mastectomy with Tram flap reconstruction was very intimidating for me and caused me anxiety and fear. Dr. Andrew Elkwood and his staff at immediately calmed my fears and eased me through the decision making process and actual procedures. Dr. Elkwood explained my options in terms I could easily understand and always treated me with confidence, humor and compassion. His expertise and staff are second to none. I am thrilled with the final result.
