"I recently had my first appointment with Dr. Eli Kamara and it was a great experience. Dr. Kamara has a warm and kind manner that immediately put me at ease, which is not always the case when meeting with a new doctor. Even though I try to prepare myself for medical appointments by becoming as informed as possible, I often still feel nervous or rushed knowing that I only have a certain amount of a doctor’s time. But during this appointment Dr. Kamara took the time to thoroughly explain my x-ray results and what that meant as far as realistic treatment options in my specific circumstances. He also took time to address all of my questions and concerns and I so appreciated feeling heard and understood as a patient, as an individual, and also as a competent collaborator in my own treatment.I am genuinely grateful to have found a surgeon with Dr. Kamara's impressive background and experience combined with such an attentive and caring manner.

"I went to see this Dr for a second opinion for hip surgery. He confirmed “bone in bone” on the R side but recommended treatment first before the surgery as he said I would be out of commission for about 2 months with the surgery (at this hospital). Fast forward I decided to get the surgery at NYU Langone and was walking without a cane (and no pain) after 2 weeks! I think this Drs methodology is outdated. "

"Dr. Eli Kamara, was very informative and clear about diagnosis and steps that needed to be taken to help with knee pain I had been experiencing. Provided more than one option to rectify symptoms. "

"Dr. Kamara is the best Orthopedic surgeon. He has done both of my TKRs. I had my right knee done on 8/22 and my left on 4/23. We spoke about my weight, and he was not rude and made me aware that I had to make a change. Because of his excellent approach, I changed my life in many ways. Thank you, Dr. Kamara, for returning my life with no pain in my legs. You are a gift from the Lord above."

"Dr. Eli Kamara is the absolute best. He is personable and I had both hips done by him and was walking on my own within a month's time. I love him and have referred others to him and they are raving about his work and mannerism and how quickly they were up and running in no time at all. Knee and Hip replacement he did for friends of mine"
