Dr Elalem is a kind caring professional surgeon. He saved my Life. I had a G.I.S.T in my stomach that was successfully removed. Not only did he take the time to explain to me the procedure beforehand and followup after in the Hospital, he took as much time as was needed to explain it to my wife and daughter after the surgery. Once home he told me to call his office any time and ask to speak to him and his staff would would put me right through if I had any problems. Four weeks after surgery he made a personal phone call to me just to make sure I was OK. Wonderful man!

Dr, Elalem was the on call surgeon at HDGH he did 2 surgerys on me both for the same thing a absest in my breast that keeps coming back not sure if its because of what he did or what,but i really liked him alot he made me feel at ease at the hospital anyways, when i went to my follow up appointment at his office it took me to have to get the bayshore clinic where i was going for my dreessing change to get ahold of him to get an appointment because they DO NOT answer the phone or call you back i thought the secretary was very rude and so was Dr. elalem much different from the hospital he didnt even look at the incision that he made on me i was upset when i left his office total different experience from at HDGH.

Dr elelam is the very polite, caring, he knows what he is doing. He did both of my surgerys and he did a good job at both. If I ever need another surgery, no questions asked he will be doig that surgery.. hands down best surgeon from both ofmy experiences.

Outstanding experience with Dr.Elalm. I had a mass found in my upper chest and he put me in his schedule priority. I saw him, he took my history, ordered labs and a biopsy, all to be done within the week. He is professional, direct yet compassionate, lists options, answers questions and offers clinical treatment options as well personal treatment options (positive outlook). I found him to be a very very good doctor and a class gentleman. Highly recommended.

My husband was told he had lung cancer by his family Dr on Sept. 26th and referred to Dr. Elalem. We were able to see him within a week and were very impressed with him, however since then we have been unable to find out the results of the lung biopsy and the PET scan. The phone is never answered and the message on the answering machine is a laugh ... promises of "48 hour" call backs.

Was referred to Dr. El-Elam for digestive issues I was having. He performed an endoscopy and sorted out my issues. Sometimes the cure for digestive disorders means dietary changes not "pills", and I was no exception. Would gladly go back to this doctor again if needed.

He is very kind, knowledgable, caring, patient, and every one I met in HDGH said lots of good things about him not only me. He is an amazing, very wellknown and a pro. I recommend him for everyone.

No respect to his patients at all. Intimidating person. Argues with you and no respect for scheduled surgeries, cancels surgeries 10 minutes before your scheduled time. If u don't have months to waist stay away for this unprofessional so called "good" doctor. OHIP will defenetly hear of this.
