Office is nice along with front desk and PT staff.

Negative Comments

LOL, I never once saw Dr Elrod in 3 visits, even though I was his patient. The staff said Dr. Burton was actively reviewing my case, including my MRI, but when I got a copy of the MRI he had not reviewed it I went over it with another doctor in his office.

Horrible Doctor who doesn't care for the wellbeing of his patience. He cares about money in his pockets

Dr. Elrod and elite sports medicine care more about filling their pockets then the need of the patient. Everything they do is to get the most money out of you.

General Comments

Elite Sports Medicine and Dr. Elrod care about putting money in their pockets instead of what is best for the patient. They use hyaluronic injection that cost the patient more money because they receive more kickbacks for using it. I recently had surgery and the whole surgery to therapy process is tailored to force you to use all your therapy visits in order for you to feel like you are making any progress, and then they try to sell you on a Personal training with a sister company (owned by the same people). The therapist are over booked. You do not get one on one care, more like one therapist for every 4-5 patients. I basically did therapy on my own while paying them to talk to each other. I recently went to get a 2nd opinion on my knee because it feels worse now than it did before surgery and was told they way they handled my knee post surgery was "highly unusual" and "not typical procedure" for the type of surgery I had done on my knee, which is the reason I am having the problems I am having now. So, unless you are a professional athlete don't expect to get the care you need from Dr. Elrod and Elite Sports Medicine.

I have been a patient of Dr. Elrod since 2007. He is a top notch surgeon that is very knowledgeable in his field and has repaired my injuries and I am able to live a normal life without pain or restrictions! Highly recommended!
