Reviews for Pasadena, CA Surgeon Dr. Husam Elias

5.0 Review from N.Z. Source: Yelp Mar 17 2023

"I have always had problems with my teeth and finding an understanding dentist and orthodontist has always been a struggle. I needed a wisdom teeth surgery ( one broke in half and other 2 were growing super close to my nerves) the amazing staff at this location made everything so smooth. Starting from setting up appointments to very welcoming checking in and out, to the doctor and assistants that were very knowledgeable, explained in a language that anyone can understand easily and yet make informed choices. After the surgery they assisted my family member with my smooth pick up from their office. Overall, their customer service, professionalism and knowledge is what I call a 5star experience."

"My 82-year-old father with multiple high risk medical issues was confidently referred to Dr Elias by my long time family friend and dentist for extensive dental infections. At the very first visit to the office, Dr Elias used the latest high-tech CT scan to diagnose the problem. With great ethical and clinical analysis of the entire situation and all the relevant medical ramifications involved in this complex case, Dr Elias realized the severity of the problem and expedited my father's 14 teeth extractions immediately. Despite his busy schedule that day, Dr Elias perform the surgery stat within that same hour - in the Surgi-Center. After 1 hour under IV sedation all 14 teeth were extracted without any complications and my father recovered well... as a physician myself.. I am truly grateful for the high-standard and compassionate medical care my father received that day by Dr Elias and his staff. I would highly recommend anybody with serious dental or oral issues to get care from Dr Elias as a surgeon....Gratefully Dr KP"

"I was recommend by a friend who got her breast and BBL done by Dr. Elias and I’m so glad I found him! Dr. Elias did such an amazing job with my lip fillers giving me natural results I wanted. I was debating getting them done for over a year because it was hard to find a trusting doctor and a great price. From the moment I walked through the door the staff was very kind and did not feel pressure at all to make any decisions. They took their time explaining to me my different options and made sure all my questions were answered. But not only is he the best cosmetic surgeon, he’s an oral surgeon as well which is perfect because my wisdom teeth need to be removed! We all want the natural results and if your looking for a Doctor who can do that for you, look no further Dr. Elias is the one!"

"Dr. Husam Elias is magic! Not only is he exceptional at his craft, but his gracious character is unmatched. It is a big act of vulnerability for one to go under the knife, and I think it’s absolutely vital to find a doctor that cares about YOU and what YOU want.From his superb team to the soft details of which words he chooses to speak to you with, Dr. Husam Elias created the safest environment for me to feel listened to, supported, and best of all- EXCITED! His artistry speaks for itself, and he did a beautiful job on me.It is almost 4 months, and even with his booming business, I have never once felt dismissed when reaching out to him, or his lovely team, about anything big or small. I will forever remain grateful for my results."

"My first procedure was Facetite with Dr. Elias. I was able to do the procedure awake on a Friday & was back to work on Monday! I was still swollen but not in pain at all. It’s a minimum invasive procedure to tighten the skin & gets rid of the fat. The staff was really friendly and was able to answer all my questions. I’ve been back many more times for Botox & fillers. Dr. Elias is such a perfectionist and that is exactly what I’m looking for in a Cosmetic Surgeon!"

Dr. Pouya is very nice and explained the whole process to us from beginning to end. They were nice enough to schedule her surgery the following week since I wanted her to recover before she went back to school. I am very pleased with the whole office and how well the surgery went.

Didn’t need any of the pain meds and was back at work two days later looking like a snack.

"This is by far the best medical practice I have ever encountered. From the front office staff to the assistants to the doctor, everyone was very friendly and very professional. I had Dr. Elias as my oral surgeon. He thoroughly reviewed my scans with me and walked me through the recommended procedures. I had to have a tooth extraction followed a few months later with an implant. I was more than a bit nervous prior to the implant procedure.  The entire back office staff recognized that and did their best to help calm my stress.  Going into the procedure I had all the confidence in the world in Dr. Elias. He did not disappoint.   His entire staff is amazing!  If I ever require oral surgery again, I will definitely turn to Dr. Elias and his amazing staff. They are the best!"

5.0 Review from C.F. Source: Yelp Dec 04 2020

"WOW! Dr. Elias surpassed all of my typically very skeptic expectations. As a VERY nervous patient (the kind who can cry with low pain tolerance and fear of needles), it is very hard to find a dentist/oral surgeon who is patient enough to take their time with me. Dr Elias was not only patient, but gave me the dignity to speak freely over any concerns, answered my questions thoroughly, and put me at complete ease earning his trust very quickly. This is NOT the kind of doctor who overbooks patients and rushes, or patronizes you telling you what they think you want to hear to get your business.     Going in for my first wisdom tooth extraction and reading up ahead, I prepared myself for pain both during and after.  Dr. Elias suggested that we could probably just use nitrous gas along with the local numbing. He was sure to listen to my request to numb me well (which didn’t hurt since I was comfortable).  He came back a few minutes later to check the numbing and before I had realized he had even started he was DONE! I was amazed!     Now, I can’t speak for others who may have extremely impacted teeth since mine had already broken the surface. But, the simple fact is, this was still a wisdom tooth and I didn’t feel a thing! No pain at all! And, with it seeming to be so effortless for him, it is a true testament to this man’s skills! But the most surprising part is that while I’m writing this the day after the surgery I am still pain free (no meds needed).  Even after the numbing wore off, I didn’t feel any pain... only a pressure feeling as the clot was forming (much like the pressure you’d feel if you get a large piece of food stuck between your teeth).  I didn’t have to use any of the pain meds that were given to me, and today I’m just being very careful/gentle so the clot stays in and everything can heal well.  This was nothing like the nightmare I had prepared myself for, and while it may have only been one erupted wisdom tooth, I feel the overall outcome would have been very different with another doctor.     After seeing about 10-15 dentists or oral surgeons in the last 5 years (due to how much I had let my mouth go and mainly because of switching from bad doctor experiences), I can honestly say I trust this man with my mouth. Dr. Elias’ bedside manner, skills, and professionalism are a triple threat that is very hard to find in a world of dental sales pitches. I should also mention that the entire staff was all very kind, but I had to ask the names of about 5 of the 8 I met lol All very sweet and patient nonetheless. I appreciated Alex’s upbeat and, more importantly, genuine energy the most as he helped me multiple times.     Bottom line, if you’re looking for a patient, honest, and skilled doctor, then Dr. Elias is the guy, ESPECIALLY if you have the sensitive phobias paired with the high standards that I do. I very much appreciate him for what he does and how he does it."

"I visited Dr Elias at Pacific Coast Center in Pasadena for a broken molar. I was able to get in quickly for evaluation and within a week I was on the table for extraction. Dr Elias removed my tooth virtually pain-free and I was very impressed with the outcome. I found Dr Elias to be the consumate professional including a phone call the same evening to make sure I was doing well. I highly recommend his services for any dental surgery issue. Not to mention, his out-of-pocket rates are very reasonable and his facilities are impeccable. 5-stars all the way!"

"I had a terrible toothache and was recommended to Dr Elias for an emergency wisdom tooth extraction.  Naturally, I was quite nervous about the whole procedure...but Dr Elias and and team couldn’t have been nicer.   The office was real nice and comfortable as well.  And they all worked to explain everything to me, and to ease my fears. And once my face was all numbed up, the extraction took about 30 seconds! And it didn’t hurt at all.  I was so happily surprised.  I followed the doctor’s detailed instructions on how to heal after the surgery. Then went back 10 days later for a quick and easy follow up.  All good!  And I’m now back to eating normally, without any pain.Thank you, Dr Elias and your whole, wonderful team for making a scary situation so easy and painless for me."

I’m not going to lie, recovery is uncomfortable, but I was only bleeding for about 2-3 days and my stitches came out within a week. I’m really grateful for Dr. Elias & his staff for taking care of me the minute I made my appointment to the day I fully healed. Getting your wisdom teeth out can be scary but Dr. Elias & his team did a great job! Thank you!"

"Simply the best surgical experience I have ever had. It was the nightmare scenario: incredible tooth pain during a holiday weekend. My dentist was great in contacting his first choice, Dr. Elias. Dr. Elias then coordinated a whole team to meet me on that Sunday morning for multiple extractions. He was comforting and calm and truly helpful in every way. The team that handled my surgery: Dianne, Alex and Dr. Veratti, were simply amazing. Equal parts comforting, reassuring, nice, professional, I could go on and on. Remember, this was a Sunday morning of a holiday weekend and they made me feel like it was a midweek planned appointment. Regardless, they were simply the best. I can not recommend this office highly enough. From the front desk (for follow ups and calls), to Dr. Elias, to especially my team, this review will never give their efforts and skill and attitudes enough credit. But I wanted to try."

I called the office and Katrina got me in the next day for consultation and X-rays. They made my son watch a video and do a test, to make sure he understood the surgery. I love this! Kids tend to not pay attention so this was a nice touch. They were accommodating with his schedule and we got in over the summer. I was also impressed with his beautiful and clean facilities. Everyone made us feel special including the MA, I think his name was Alex. Laurie was also a dream to work with on my insurance. I would highly recommend this office."

"The staff and doctor are excellent. I went in with my daughter to remove four wisdom teeth and the two receptionists were kind and professional. I missed the first surgery appointment because I am terrible with time. Of course, they were not super happy but they were polite and rescheduled the appointment and didn’t charge me. When I came in with my daughter on time for the rescheduled appointment, everything went smoothly until after the surgery, my daughter woke up crying and disoriented from the medication. I could hear her crying and became distraught. At first the assistant was defensive when I demanded to see my daughter, but quickly understood I was just a concerned parent. She let me know my daughter was not in pain and was doing okay. After my daughter calmed down, they brought her to another room where I could be with her. I think, given the circumstances, the staff handled the situation well. I would go to them again for my kids’ or my own wisdom teeth removal."

"My dad is in his late 70’s and has to take blood thinners for a cardiac condition. We had visited a few dentists-all of whom were uneasy with pulling a tooth because of his medications and quite frankly, I don’t think these dentists were up to date on recent studies. Dr. Elias was clearly very knowledgeable and skilled. He spent time to explain and answer questions and performed the procedure as we had hoped-with courtesy, minimal pain and out the door. His staff is friendly and professional and was able to quickly get the estimate for the procedure and insurance coverage. I work in healthcare myself and know a well run team when I see one. Highly recommended!"

"I had a stubborn molar removed yesterday by Dr. Elias and it was as smooth as clockwork.The entire staff made me feel welcomed and they were kind and professional.Dr. Elias was a master at getting that molar removed quickly and it was totally pain free. I was given a prescription for pain medication but didn’t bother to get it filled as there was NO pain.Here I am the day after and I have ZERO problems. My hat’s off to these fine people and Dr. Elias is a true craftsman and wonderful oral surgeon. THANK YOU ALL!"

"I was terrified of getting my wisdom teeth out, heard so many horrible stories about the pain and recovery that I kept putting it off. Dr. Elias removed all 4 of my wisdom teeth only using gas and a local anesthetic. I recovered with very minimal pain and didn’t have to use anything stronger than Advil for just a few days!"

As someone who is extremely anxious about getting surgery, I felt super comfortable and cared for throughout the entire process.

"I was told by my dentist I needed to have all four wisdom teeth removed and found Dr. Elias on Yelp and decided to go in for a consultation to see if I’d like to have him do the work.  He informed me one of them was on a nerve and would require additional work, which honestly freaked me out, but him and his staff reassured me it’d be okay.  It has now been over a week and I’m fully back to normal (really only took a few days before I could eat real food again).  Furthermore, his staff continuously kept in touch to make sure I was doing okay the following week.  I highly recommend Dr. Elias for any oral surgery you need."

"Dr Elias, Katrina, Gaby , Hilda and Dianne changed my life !!!! This office is like no other. They treat you like family from the moment you walk in.  I genuinely love this office. I can honestly say dr Elias restored my faith In medicine. His approach is up to date and he is detailed in all he does. I am a tummy tuck patient and I am more than happy with my results. I will ONLY trust dr Elias when it comes to cosmetic surgery. He has your best interest at heart not your wallet. Thank you dr Elias for helping me feel beautiful again and rock a two piece bathing suit again!! I love my tummy! I can’t believe I’m saying that after 2 kids !"

"Had all four of my wisdom teeth extracted by Dr. Elias. I was very anxious about having them removed, I’ve never had any kind of surgery before, I did my research and found a great dentist in Porter Ranch (Dr. Kargodorian) who referred me to Dr. Elias’s office. The staff there was very nice and answered all my questions and made sure I was informed of the risks and complications of the procedure. The surgery went great, I felt nothing and had plenty of instruction for after care and medication for pain. It’s been about 3 weeks since my surgery and the extraction site is almost completely healed!So glad I got it done with Dr. Elias."

"Dr. Elias and his incredible staff were absolutely wonderful from start to finish.  I had a somewhat complicated wisdom tooth extraction that needed to be done (I’m on the older side for wisdom tooth surgery, and the tooth was sitting on a nerve which can lead to permanent numbness in the chin if the nerve is damaged during the surgery.)  I had a few consultations with oral surgeons in the area and immediately felt that Dr. Elias and his staff were the best.  Dr. Elias was thorough, calm, kind, and informative and his office staff made me feel at home and at ease throughout the consultation, follow up visit, and procedure. Katrina from the front office went above and beyond to help track down information from my dentist and confirm all of my insurance information.The extraction (done under full IV sedation) went very smoothly and I was able to go back to work the next day and feel better than I have in a long time.  There were no issues with the nerve, and I will absolutely return to Dr. Elias’ office if I ever need anything else done."

"Wonderful experience from start to finish!  My 18 year oldson needed 4 impacted wisdom teeth extracted.  Dr. Husan made the experience a breeze.  From the office staff who took care of the pre-authorization with our insurance company, to Dr. Elias’ skilled expertise with oral surgery.  The in-office procedure took less than one hour and my son had very little pain or swelling afterward.  During recovery, my son didn’t even need to take the narcotics that were prescribed.  I highly recommend Dr. Elias and his staff."

"Dr. Elias and his staff, especially Katrina, helped me with a TMJ issue.  Dr. Elias is extremely professional and provided relief after seeing multiple dentists and specialists for jaw pain/migraines.  His calm manner and expertise will help put you at ease when discussing the problem you are there to fix.  Katrina went above and beyond to discuss issues with my health insurance regarding imaging and surgery.  I am still in the process of being treated for TMJ, but so far, this first day experience was top notch and needed to be recognized!"

"I obtained a mucocele on my right side of my lower lip in January 2017. I waited a couple of months to see if it would go away and after reading other people’s experiences with them online, I realized it was not going to disappear on its own. After 3 long months of having a pea sized cyst on my lip, I decided it was time to seek a doctor to get it removed. Anyone who has had a mucocele knows that it is extremely annoying and can effect your self esteem. I could see people staring at it during conversations(it was large enough to be noticed even with good distance.) I emailed and Katrina the office receptionist responded SO quickly and we arranged an appointment in NO time. She was very understanding of all of the annoying questions that I had due to my nerves about surgery and the outcome. Unfortunately I do not have insurance so I was worried about the expenses, however, they really worked with me on the price and I am very grateful for that. The surgery was quick and easy(thanks to laughing gas) and I am very pleased today with the aftermath. You would never be able to tell I had surgery on my lip(thanks to Dr. Elias which is not only a dentist but a cosmetic surgeon as well.) It has now been a month post surgery and my lip has no stitches, no scars, and the swelling has gone away completely. If anyone ever has an issue where their lip or mouth goes through trauma and a mucocele pops up I HIGHLY recommend taking the steps I did and seeing Dr. Elias!"

"I seriously cannot say enough good things about Dr Elias and his whole team. I was referred to Dr Elias from my dentist to remove an impacted tooth and do a bone graft for a future implant, it was somewhat complex (too many details to explain) but from the minute I met Dr Elias I felt I was in good hands. He took his time explaining the procedure, what it would entail and answering questions. On the day of the surgery I was so nervous but his staff put me at ease reminding me he was a pro. The surgery was done in no time and when I awoke I just felt numb. I was prescribed a couple of pain medicines but didn’t have to use any of them because I NEVER felt any pain. Dr Elias and his team called to check in on me later that night and I did two follow-up appointments and Dr Elias spent the same amount of time answering questions in my follow-ups as he did on my initial consultation. I was really impressed with his skills as an oral surgeon but he is also a very nice person and truly goes out of his way to have a good relationship with his patients.  He employs a great team as well!"

"I was lucky enough to be recommended to Dr. Elias for an emergency tooth extraction when my original oral surgeon wasn’t available. I won’t need to go back to the other one!. The staff, especially the nurse who assisted that day, saved me by putting me at ease. The nurse even allowed me to hold her hand during two moments that were very intense for me (I wasn’t in pain, but was intimidated by certain parts of the procedure). It was over before I knew it---Dr. Elias was quick and efficient. He did everything to make me comfortable with what needed to happen. I also had a great follow-up visit. I won’t go so far as to say I’m looking forward to any more oral surgery, but if it has to happen, it will be Dr. Elias, hands down."

"Dr. Elias is a great doctor. From my first consultation to my last follow up appointment he showed respect, time, and every single question was answered. He is very honest with you and does not rush your appointments  like other doctors. All my questions were answered at my first consult. He made me feel comfortable day of surgery, and also made my husband feel confortable while he was in the waiting room. After surgery he went straight to him to let him know he was done. Staff was also very helpful with everything, specially surgery day. I am beyond happy with my breast lift/augmentation. I would definitely recommend him! Thank you for changing my life!!"

"Dr. Elias was highly recommended by my dentist for my daughter’s oral surgery. She had some impacted wisdom teeth that needed to be removed. We came to Dr. Elias for a consultation and were greeted by the very friendly and professional staff. Upon meeting Dr. Elias and discussing the case, my daughter and I felt very comfortable with his knowledge and bedside manner. He takes insurance and all the costs were explained to us up front. We scheduled the surgery and received the pre- op instructions. On the day of surgery, we arrived at the office and they brought my daughter in for the surgery. 1 hour later, she was released with post-op instructions and her meds.The surgery was a great success.  It was done 3 days before Thanksgiving  and we were concerned that she wasn’t going to be able to enjoy the feast. This was not the case. She had turkey and all the other dishes. No problems at all. Her post-op went very well and she is now wisdom tooth free.Thanks Dr Elias and staff for making the surgery such a great experience."

"I literally couldn’t speak more highly of the staff and Dr.Elias himself, from booking my first appointment to the follow up appointment after my dental surgery everything was flawless. I was referred to Dr. Elias by Alpha Dental to have all four of my wisdom teeth removed due to having a nerve running closing to the root of one which often got infected. I was assured by Dr. Elias that it would be a simple procedure with extremely small risk, I was given plenty of information on the procedure and was respectfully and clearly talked through what they expected of me on the day.Due to my wife’s work schedule I had very little availability to book the extraction, but the lovely receptionist made it possible, and helped me with my dental insurance paper work, that process couldn’t have been easier, it literally took moments.As for the dental surgery itself, naturally I was a little nervous when the day finally came, the attentive and kind staff couldn’t have taken better care of me and Dr. Elias did such a phenomenal job, I had very minor swelling, no real pain, only a little discomfort and I went back to work 48 hours later with minimal signs of having had anything done, He is truly a master of his craft.Having teeth removed has never been so pleasant."

"All of a sudden my wife had an unbearable tooth ache. Seriously. And, on a Sunday, no less. Nothing seemed to make her comfortable or diminish the pain. She was miserable, and I felt helpless. At 4:30 am, the following Monday morning she let me know I had to find a dental surgeon. It had become an emergency. My wife was freakin’! Our insurance plan offered little assistance so I decided to go outside our network. I began seeing Dr. Elias and the Southern California Center for the Surgical Arts come up online repeatedly. I checked out the comments on Yelp and other places, and it seemed that he was the Dr. my wife needed to see. What to do at 4:30 am? I stumbled upon a site that Dr. Elias was registered on called Zocdoc. His available appointment schedule was listed online! This was something I didn’t expect. There was an opening that Monday at 10am and we booked it. We received confirmation shortly thereafter and I was able to fill out the bulk of the required paperwork online. Once completed, Zocdoc forwarded the paperwork to his office. We were ready to go. I gotta tell you, the staff at the doctor’s office couldn’t do enough to make my wife feel as comfortable as possible. They were sensitive to my wife’s pain and were willing to do whatever it took to deal with the insurance company to work things out for us. Katrina was in charge of our situation, and we couldn’t have been more pleased. She was comforting, sympathetic, knowledgeable and amazingly efficient. She put up with all our questions. Everyone in the office had a smile on their face and it made the office welcoming and much less traumatic given what my wife was going through. My wife went in for her appointment and sure enough, she needed a wisdom tooth extraction. My wife was in such pain there wasn’t a moment to waste. Dr. Elias had an opening for her right away, and that was that. Now, here’s the amazing part. The actual procedure took less than seven minutes. Yup. Seven minutes. Done. Over. Sure, he took out a tooth from her jaw, but he did it with such professionalism and was so incredibly knowledgeable, it seemed like a walk in the park, though for my wife, the pain prior to the procedure was anything but.  Worrying is my business, but let me tell you, I am vice president of Dr. Elias’ fan club. I couldn’t have asked for a more thorough, professional, knowledgeable surgeon. A terrific bedside manner, if you will.  No question in our minds, Dr. Elias and his staff really made an entirely unbearable situation almost palatable. Yes, the insurance company made it as difficult as possible to obtain coverage (what else is new?) and the pain, post procedure is pretty much gone now. All that remains is the amazing experience that we had with Dr. Elias and his team. If the situation arises, we wouldn’t hesitate for an instant. We’re going back to the Southern California Center for Surgical Arts."

"The reviews are what led me to Dr. Elias and I’m so happy I went! Just got 3 wisdom teeth removed - I was in and out of that office in 1 hour (WITH A CONSULT)! I was dehydrated [my bad] so he had a little bit of a tough time getting my IV in but after that I was fine. That plus the nitrox really helped me relax since I was kind of freaking out. I wasn’t supplied with a syringe until my follow-up visit; I used a waterpik in between to keep the holes clean because he didn’t stitch me up. If I didn’t have anything to clean out the holes, it would’ve been a miserable/gross situation. I highly recommend Dr. Elias!"

Dr. Elias was very thorough with the procedure and answered all questions I had. I put this procedure off for many years as I was terrified since I’ve never had to have surgery. After the consultation with him, I was comfortable and ready to get it over with. I trusted him and I am by far grateful to have had such a great surgeon. The surgery was so quick. Everything is healing perfectly and I feel so much better now that they are out. His staff is awesome and they are very sweet and helpful.

"I don’t know where to start with describing my experience with Dr Elias:) here is my story...After I had both of my children, my breasts transformed and became saggy and I became very self conscience and hated looking at them. For several years I felt depressed about it and never did anything about it. My good friend had done her breast aug with Dr Elias a few months prior and they looked fantastic and suggested I go see Elias for a consultation, I figured what do I have to lose so I did. I was so nervous bc I have seen botched cosmetic surgeries and that was my biggest fear. After meeting Dr Elias, he was very professional and made me feel comfortable, informed, and excited! I booked my surgery for a breast lift and augmentation a month later. My results are incredible!!!! I love love love my breasts!!! Dr Elias is an artist! His incisions are so fine and thin that I will have no scarring!!! He is a perfectionist. I cried when I saw my breast for the first time:) what I love the most besides the beauty of his craft is that he cares about the well being of his patients. A few days after my surgery he sent me a text asking how I was feeling. Words cannot describe how Dr Elias has changed my life. It’s been three weeks after my surgery and I am sooooo happy with my results! Thank you to Dr Elias and his wonderful team for taking such good care of me and changing my life!! I feel so confident and beautiful!!!"

Dr. Elias is the best surgeon ever, very detailed and careful with his work making him a true cosmetic artist.

"Just had all 6 (yes 6) of my wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Elias. I knew from many years and many dentists that it would be a complicated process. Two of my teeth were lodged up and behind my two other wisdom teeth in my upper jaw and were very close to my sinus cavity. I held off for way to long to get this done because of this and the risks that come along with digging around up there. Dr. Elias was very understanding, caring, and professional, and made me feel at ease right away. Long story short, it’s been two weeks now and I’ve had no bruising, no swelling, and after the first day no pain. I credit Dr. Elias’ skilled hand at accomplishing this. He AND his staff are fantastic!"
