Dr. Elaraj did my parathyroid surgery six years ago and I was very satisfied with her care. I have confidence in her and any decisions she will make in regard to any follow up on my condition.

Dr. Elaraj, PA and nurse were all terrific. I felt they were all very caring and concerned about my condition and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Elaraj is everything I would want in a surgeon - confident, caring, intelligent, and professional yet approachable. I felt comfortable asking questions, and she answered them all in a way I could easily understand. She did a terrific job of describing a hemithyroidectomy and possible complications. If surgery is necessary, I feel very well-informed and very much at ease.
