I have had several surgeries before having my total hip replacement by Dr. Park. Their pre-op, day of surgery and post-op process and procedures are the best I have ever experienced. I have never experienced a surgeon and their staff who make you feel as if you are their most important patient. When I asked questions, every person stopped what they were doing and had a conversation with me about the topic my question was about. Every day I received a call or text to guide me on specific steps I needed to take before or after surgery. The icing on the cake was the message from Dr. Park on the evening before the surgery that he had this. The timing was uncanny. But it was exactly what I needed to here that night. This is the best and most professional I have ever had. My assessment is based on the eight prior surgeries I had in my life. Surgery was five days ago. I can tell you already it is a sucess.

Dr. Elzik is the real deal. I have had thumb surgery in the past by a different Doctor. That entire process was awful. I went to Dr. Elzik, he provided surgery on my other thumb. The results from Dr. Elzik & team were a completely a positive ending. The procedure was less invasive and I had less recovery time. Lastly from the Doctor to his staff they are so very caring and friendly. I'm a fan for life.

Dr. Park is simply unsurpassed in every way. So skilled, so kind, can't say enough. He has given my 95 year old mom a new pain free chapter in her life. She had a full knee replacement 2 weeks ago and is already walking better than pre-surgery. Thank you, Dr. Park. Our experience with you exceeds 5 stars!!

Dr. Park is amazing! He's conscientious and really well informed. I had so much metal in my body from a 15 year old hip replacement. Dr. Park figured out the least invasive and easiest recovery for me and really saved me. He gave me back at least 5 years of my life...I don't fall any more and I'm not feeling insecure and prematurely senile now. It's such a gift. Smart and gifted surgeon.

My shoulder was in bad shape due to several dislocations and a prior shoulder surgery. After Dr. Fitzpatrick fixed my shoulder I have had no issues. I’m very satisfied and definitely recommend him. It’s been around 5 years now and my shoulder is still going strong.

Dr. Park is excellent, very knowledgeable, explains the problem very well and discusses the cure options. He is also very personable and easy to talk to. My surgery went very well and with a fast recovery.

I had a basketball injury and was referred to Dr. Elzik to look at my little finger on my left hand which had a severe "rip" of meat and skin right down to the tendons. He was very thorough and let me know what I could do to help it heal. It is fine now and I am playing again.

I was very impressed by Dr. Mark Elzik and his knowledge and expertise concerning my condition. He put me at ease and his confidence was reassuring; everything went well and my fingers have straightened out and are feeling back to normal after some initial pain. It has been a long time since I have been able to have my finger lie flat and I am pleased with the outcome. I am wearing the brace each night and find I don’t even notice it during sleep. So thank you to Dr. Elzik and his staff and office personnel who directed us along the way !!

I had a total hip replacement on 11/25/19. A year ago I first consulted with Dr. Park regarding the need for a hip replacement. He did not in any way try to pursuance me to have one. He told me I would know when I needed the surgery. He was right. The surgery went well, I was quite confident in his care. He is a very good listener and he provided me with what I should anticipate.

He was knowledgeable, professional but with understanding and he was respectful on how I felt. Explaining clearly so that I did not feel bad for not knowing.

I was admitted to the emergency room, late at night, was a fractured hip. It was extremely painful. Dr.Park came into the hospital, early, the next morning,and performed the hip surgery. It relieved some of the pain, soon, and appears to have been successful. I am continuing with Physical Therapy, will see Dr. Park for a follow-up visit, next month. When I saw, ast, he was very reassuring, and answered all of our questions.

ASTOUNDING, AWESOME, AMAZING all fit! Left hip replaced on Monday and got kicked out on Tuesday, could have walked if they would have let me. Full mobility, no pain, and had to leave a room with an ocean view. It's Fri as I write this and the only pain I've had has been superficial from the stitches and dressing. The whole experience has been hard to believe and very stress relieving.

I have seen Drs. Park, Wang, Edit for various problems, but primarily, Dr. Mark Elzik for problems with my hands. He has done several surgical procedures on my hands successfully relieving Trigger Finger Conditions not responding to Cortisone shots. He is very professional and relates really well to patients, answering questions and concern for patients welfare. Since I have seen the other MDs and experienced excellent treatment and care as well, I highly recommend COOrtho.com for all Orthopedic needs and care . Barb F.

Dr. Park replaced both my hips four years ago and recently did knee replacement surgery on my right knee. He is the best! Highly recommend Dr. Park to all my family and friends.
