  • Dr. Elkin has given me everything I could have asked for. I came in with hip pain for 6 months that I was told was just the way I wore my belt. Someone else told me it was because I was doing too much exercise. I then find out I have a huge labral tear and Dr. Elkin performed an arthroscopic repair and femoroplasty as I had a bone deformity that was tearing away at my labrum. Recovery was so smooth and I had no pain within days after surgery. Thank you Dr. Elkin! - Dmitriy Z. - 4/14/2023

  • Dr. Elkin listens well to me and respects what I tell him. I had a shoulder replacement & I found the care of the Hope staff excellent. They are very professional and also caring. I'm going to have my other shoulder done too & I wouldn't have any other doctor perform surgery on my shoulder. - Debbie A. - 3/19/2023

  • I was so fortunate to select Dr Daniel Elkin as my surgeon to do a reverse R shoulder replacement in Dec 2022. His team at Hope and for the surgery at Salem Hospital were all so helpful and professional. I sensed from the original consultation I had with Dr Elkin that he would be an excellent choice. The outcome from his work has been outstanding. Also the post op visits at Hope were so encouraging for this major surgery. His medical assistant, Yon, is a wonderful part of Dr Elkin’s team. Thank you for giving me the use of my arm back! - Vicki L. - 2/23/2023
