Patient Comments

I was under the impression when the appointment was made that it was going to be a small surgery. When we arrived, we found out it was only a consultation. My grandson missed his first day of school for a consultation. The scheduler told me it was for the surgery. Now, we have to come back yet a third time. The instructions the first time were also not clear.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 9, 2019

He is very attentive! I'm thankful I got him, I trust him and he's great!

OU Physicians Patient Aug 6, 2019

I asked for a specific person as my surgical tech, and he made it happen, I'm am so grateful, they treated me so good ??

OU Physicians Patient Jul 30, 2019

Very pragmatic and calm. He listened very well to my concerns and the result I am anticipating. I'll m very comfortable with having him perform the surgery successfully.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 30, 2019

The doctor was Great! The problem is the parking, dead ends in the parking garage, having to back up when the car behind you has no where to go. No dead end sings, then trying to turn around. I've never been more upset about parking in my life and it was not good for my child either before he see's a doctor he's never seen before. I don't know who's bright idea it is to set up a parking garage like this, but I can almost bet they don't park in the parking garage and I'm not about to have someone park my car for me after seeing how they drive other people's car's. I had to take my son to the ER a week before he had to see the doctor and drove around for half hour trying to find the ER(no sign pointing to the ER drive)and ending up taking him to another ER. Thank goodness it was not serious. I know there is a lot going on around the OU, but not looking forward to the next appointment.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 25, 2019

I was well pleased with dr. El Amm and his knowledge and with his taking his time with me to listen to my concerns and answering all of my questions.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 23, 2019

He is very knowledgeable

OU Physicians Patient Jul 18, 2019

Seemed extremely distracted, interrupted me when I was explaining my issues. He didn't look at me when I spoke to him, only spoke directly to my husband, not to me. Didn't fully answer my questions about the procedure.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 16, 2019

The visit goes too quickly and they don't give you time to understand the procedure and treatment to follow.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 12, 2019

Awesome plastic surgeon and health care personnel!

OU Physicians Patient Jul 9, 2019

Excellent experience!

OU Physicians Patient Jul 9, 2019

Just a little more information on treatment options for my problem.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 9, 2019

He made me feel very comfortable, listened to everything I had to ask. Made me smile and laugh! I felt in very good hands!

OU Physicians Patient Jul 2, 2019

Friendly

OU Physicians Patient Jun 25, 2019

I love him! He is VERY GOOD at what he does! The only complaint I may have is that he is too serious, not very personable. Every patient is different. Overall I would highly recommend him!

OU Physicians Patient Jun 25, 2019

I waited 90 minutes to be seen and then was rushed in and out of my appointment. My concerns were dismissed, and I felt insignificant. This was my 2nd post-OP appointment. My results are disappointing and when I expressed this to Dr. El Amm he didn't seem to care what I thought.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 25, 2019

He has always listened to any of my concerns and explained all of his procedures he was going to do to ensure my safety and well-being as well as answering all of my questions. I have felt very comfortable and confident with my surgeon and his staff.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 25, 2019

Dr Amm was part of the team that originally did my daughters surgery shortly after she was born. They did an awesome job and have always been extremely helpful.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 20, 2019

He was very friendly and informative. He seemed genuinely concerned for our son's health as well.

OU Physicians Patient May 30, 2019

We love Dr Amm and the wonderful care that he provides!

OU Physicians Patient May 23, 2019

He was most helpful and was able to set my mind at ease about my problem.

OU Physicians Patient May 21, 2019

I really appreciated that they moved our appointment to a day when we needed to be in oklahoma city already! Much thanks. very good at explaining and providing feedback

OU Physicians Patient May 16, 2019

I am very pleased with Dr. El Amm. He talked with me and my husband made is feel at ease.

OU Physicians Patient May 14, 2019

I understand that he had an emergency to attend, but during my wait it would have been great to get the cat scan done so I didn't have to make another trip. Or if a cat scan was needed I should have been told before hand so it could have been taken care of.

OU Physicians Patient May 14, 2019

Dr. El Amm is wonderful!

OU Physicians Patient May 10, 2019

We were treated very well and the dr was great!

OU Physicians Patient May 10, 2019

The doctor and staff were all very kind. It was our first time and a bit overwhelmed with the information so I would prefer a way to have a follow up consultation before scheduling a surgery/procedure. Allow me time to process the doctor's recommendation and feel more confident in proceeding.

OU Physicians Patient May 10, 2019

Nothing. Dr.ElAmm is great

OU Physicians Patient May 9, 2019

Dr. El Amm is an amazing doctor. He listened and answered all my questions.

OU Physicians Patient May 9, 2019

He answered every question and I did not feel rushed.

OU Physicians Patient May 7, 2019

Made me feel very comfortable!

OU Physicians Patient Apr 30, 2019

Thankful for their medical opinion.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 26, 2019

Very rude and unprofessional...

OU Physicians Patient Apr 25, 2019

Excellent care and excellent surgeon

OU Physicians Patient Apr 25, 2019

Dr. Christian it's very professional and he always take care of me. Love my doctor.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 23, 2019

Dr. El-Amm rocks! Very reassuring, takes time with a bit of humor with my husband and I. Answers all questions completely. Definitely not in a hurry to move you through your appointment, most definitely one of the most caring doctor I have encountered!

OU Physicians Patient Apr 23, 2019

He is very professional and yet personable , felt very comfortable with the Dr.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 23, 2019

He was running an hour behind which made me mad

OU Physicians Patient Apr 18, 2019

We appreciated the time Dr Amm spent with us and the information he provided.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 16, 2019

I didn't like that no one called to tell me the doctor got called into emergency surgery, and that he would not be in until after 2, I just wish someone would have been nice enough to send out a Courtesy call, so that I wouldn't have rushed just to have to wait for hours.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 16, 2019

I have nothing to add we were very satisfied with everything.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 21, 2019

Awesome and great people

OU Physicians Patient Mar 14, 2019

We love Dr Amm and feel extremely confident in the medical care he provides our son!

OU Physicians Patient Mar 7, 2019

We had to wait 3 months for this visit. Our appointment was at 10:30 am and we arrived at 10:15 as instructed. The receptionist was very nice and efficient. We sat down and the board notified us the doctor had a 15 minute delay. 45 minutes later the board was adjusted to reflect a 30 minute delay. We were not taken back until 12 pm. The doctor saw my son for literally 7 minutes. The doctor and all staff were very nice, but the wait was ridiculous. I always expect a 30 minute wait on average, but an hour and a half was ridiculous. Plus, having to wait 3 months for an appointment only because the doctor is only scheduled in the pediatric office 1 time per week. OU should add more doctors to the staff.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 28, 2019

He's the greatest!

OU Physicians Patient Feb 26, 2019

Dr. EL AMM treats a patient like a friend. He knows my history. He gives me enough information up front that he has answered my questions before I can ask them. His knowledge and skills are top end. I wouldn't want to go to anyone else.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 26, 2019

We are so grateful for our time with Dr. El Amm. He was so gracious, kind, and helpful. We recognize the office even double-booked him so we could get in when we did, which still took 3 weeks, but it was worth the short wait!

OU Physicians Patient Feb 21, 2019

Dr. Amm is amazing. He has been such a comfort to us over the last 11 years.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 7, 2019

Dr. El Amm has been absolutely amazing and really cared about my child. He is great.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 7, 2019

He's my favorite doctor.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 5, 2019

Dr. El Amm generously provided his email address, encouraging contacting him at any time if I have questions or concerns throughout the healing process. I have contacted him and he has been extremely prompt in responding every time. I truly appreciate being able to communicate this way rather than setting up an office visit and taking time off work that might not need to be done in person.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 5, 2019

Everyone is super nice an very through.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 31, 2019

Good Dr

OU Physicians Patient Jan 15, 2019

Dr ElAmm didnt do things like I wanted. He explained why the procedure I wanted wouldn't be for my best health. I am very happy with the outcome.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 15, 2019

Dr. El Amm is always very attentive, friendly, and professional.

OU Physicians Patient Dec 13, 2018

doctor rushed during consult. doctor never came to speak with us after surgery. very disappointed.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 12, 2018

He was comprehensive and informative, and he spoke to me in a way I followed without being condescending.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 25, 2018

the doctor didn't even speak when he walked into the room, only picked up camera and started taking pictures. no follow up after surgery on surgery day. I feel he is very unprofessional but a good surgeon. His bedside manners need a little work!

OU Physicians Patient Aug 30, 2018

I have seen Dr El Lam several times and have had several surgical procedures done with him. I highly recommend him as a surgeon to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive surgery. He has always listened to my concerns and shown respect to me during all of my reconstructive surgeries. His work and how he treats his patients shows how much he genuinely cares about what he does. In my opinion it isn't just a job for Dr El Lam.

OU Physicians Patient May 15, 2018

Dr El Amm is the absolute best

OU Physicians Patient May 8, 2018

Time spent with patients is too low. It's this way with all drs not just this one or OU. I know they have to keep seeing more and more patients in a day but I'd really like it if the mandates or whatever changed back. again I understand this isn't the fault of the drs or staff.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 24, 2018

good

OU Physicians Patient Apr 17, 2018

The only negative I have is not having access to my 14-year-old's patient portal. Overall, we love OU Children's Hospital and the care providers and staff have always done a great job.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 12, 2018

I was pressed for time by the time I saw Dr. El Amm. I was more rushed than he was, but I had waited a very long time.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 3, 2018

Doctor was very attentive, knowledgeable, courteous, professional and prompt.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 27, 2018

I loved the direct way Dr E has of speaking to me. and looking me in the eyes .

OU Physicians Patient Feb 13, 2018

everything is excellent,

OU Physicians Patient Feb 8, 2018

Dr. El Amm and his staff are the absolute best! They always take such great care of me. In my opinion they are the best staff team at OU!

OU Physicians Patient Oct 17, 2017

excellent

OU Physicians Patient Oct 13, 2017

This was only my second time seeing Dr El Amm. both times he's been excellent about calming my fears, compromising on what I want and his preference t(trying it my way first and if that doesn't work we will do his preferred way).he is a fun guy who is very knowledgeable and makes me feel at ease. I've already told my family and friends about him ;).

OU Physicians Patient Sep 26, 2017

did not see or speak to the surgeon before surgery.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 19, 2017

Dr. Amm is one of the best. He explained my diagnosis, did an excellent job with the surgery, and the follow-up was all I could hope for. It's obvious he cares very much for his patients and it shows.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 5, 2017

Always will recommend Dr. El-Amm, he is well experienced and knows what he is doing. Not there just for the money. He is there for his patients and that truely means a lot.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 22, 2017

Dr. El Amm is excellent.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 17, 2017

He had a plan all figured out and a back up. Some may not like this but I have problems making big decisions so this was a blessing for me. He went through some alternatives with me and a back up plan in case the first plan didn't pan out. I need drs who give me straightforward 'this is what we need to do, do you agree' sort of thing and he did just that!

OU Physicians Patient Aug 8, 2017

I cried and he was very compassionate and didn't rush through anything. I can tell he not only genuinely cares, but is brilliant enough to make better.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 25, 2017

Dr El Am has been seeing ___ for 11 years. I am a non working RN. I understand what is going on.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 13, 2017

excellent rapore

OU Physicians Patient Jul 11, 2017

I believed this Provider truly cared for my son. He looked me in the eye and spend ample time with us, not just a quick in and out like I expected.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 29, 2017

dr. El Amm was very good. It was 2 hours after our appointment time before we were taken to exam room then another 20 minute wait. I'm not sure if there is anything that can be done about being behind schedule though. Good overall.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 1, 2017

Dr. Elamm is supposed to only see me for my breast reconstruction after cancer. He has done so much more. He has spotted infections, and other illness just from small changes in my skin that other providers have missed. He is an outstanding provider I literally trust and owe him my life.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 18, 2017

Dr El Amm was very knowledgeable, thorough and gave us confidence in his ability to provide the care and surgery our child will require. He was not rushed and he took time to answer all of our questions.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 14, 2017

Excellent care provider

OU Physicians Patient Feb 28, 2017

Dr ElAmm is excellent at his job.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 7, 2017

OU Health Sciences is fortunate to have Dr. El Amm among its physicians

OU Physicians Patient Dec 13, 2016

Dr. El Amm was very professional and cares about his patients. Once it was determined that ____ would need this surgery, Dr. El Amm assured me that ____ was in good hands. He explained that he had done the surgery numerous times. ____'s scar has healed well and looks very neat.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 10, 2016

The Dr explained the surgery and because of my high risk factors what I could expect after surgery. Also went over the complications that could possibly occur in great detail. I never felt like I was being rushed out the door. He addressed my questions and concerns very thoroughly.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 8, 2016

it was excellent

OU Physicians Patient Nov 3, 2016

I think this physician is great and he is very skilled and has gone above and beyond to help me with this process. Cancer is scary and he has been so kind and calmed a lot of my fears.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 4, 2016

I tried to ask questions about my concerns due to my son's birthmark, but once he found out I did not want to immediately schedule laser surgery on my 2 yr old he didn't want to be bothered, ended the appointment & left the room.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 29, 2016

I just don't know the Dr well enough, ill be able to recommend once the surgery is done with. but he seemed nice enough

OU Physicians Patient Sep 23, 2016

He was honest and

OU Physicians Patient Sep 20, 2016

Dr El Amm is a fantastic surgeon but is a man of few word. not words word. lol I almost didn't go to him cause he barely speaks and doesn't really have a great bedside manner in making you feel confident. but I did my research and knew he was fantastic just extremely quiet.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 30, 2016

Alyssa, the Child Life Specialist, was extremely helpful. She was very helpful in preparing our child for surgery.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 25, 2016

just seemed like we didn't see see Elamm very long. I understand it was just a follow up, but we got checked in, in a room and seen, checked out and leaving the parking garage at our actual appointment time. seemed rushed.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 21, 2016

I have always recommended this facility to family and friends. Dr. El Amm is a great surgeon who always takes time to explain things thoroughly.

OU Physicians Patient May 24, 2016

the doctor was so sweet and engaging toward my child. He took his time and explained the pros and cons very thoroughly. It was totally worth the wait to get in to see him. We had been to two dermatologists prior to this appointment. Dr. El Amm was so kind, knowledgeable, and thorough!

OU Physicians Patient Apr 21, 2016

Dr ElAmm is amazing, and we are so very lucky we have had him to care for our son for the past 5 years.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 14, 2016

it says a lot when a surgeon works you in to be seen on his lunch hour and doesn't rush through the visit! such a blessing! I'm confident he will be the best dr for my newborn.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 8, 2016

My husband and I felt so comforted by Dr. El Amm's knowledge and attention to our daughters issue. We are grateful for the time he spent with us; never hurried or appearing to have more important things to do or people to see. When it comes to our daughter's care, we are appreciate of his kindness.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 18, 2016

Dr ElAmm is the kind of MD that even if he did make a horrible error and you had ill effects from it, you'd never sue him or be angry at him. He has such an incredible passion for his work & always gives his best. You all have a jewel with him.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 16, 2016

I would refer Dr. El-Amm to anyone. He has been great and has taken well care of me and I and my husband are very thankful for him. Couldn't ask for anyone better.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 26, 2016

my surgical results are not complete, therefore I cannot make an educated conclusionary assessment as to whether I would refer friends to him.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 12, 2016

Dr. El-Amm is great. If I have any problem he will take care of it. Thanks to him.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 17, 2015

Sometimes i feel I did not get clear answers,last visit very good and thorough

OU Physicians Patient Nov 17, 2015

I have been seeing Dr. Christian El Amm for over 6 years now, he is the plastic surgeon who performed my breast reconstruction after bilateral total mastectomy. I am very happy with the care he always offered me.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 27, 2015

We were referred to Dr El Amm for a surgery consult. He was familiar with our daughters issue and clearly explained what it is and what needed to be done. He also had additional test done to ensure she did not have more internal issues. We felt very relieved after our visit with him and look forward to surgery in the spring of 2016.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 1, 2015

I did recommend him to my sister for her daughter. I was very pleased with the Doctor, nurse and staff.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 10, 2015

Dr. El Amman is wonderful! ! He is in my opinion one of the best in his field. My child is Soooo happy with the results after his surgery!!

OU Physicians Patient Sep 3, 2015

we have seen several specialist on my sons disease and by far this one is the best I hope he stays for a long time

OU Physicians Patient Aug 27, 2015

We think Dr. El Amm is a great doctor. _____ feels very comfortable with him which is very important to us.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 20, 2015

He is the only surgeon I trust with my child. He is always very friendly and works well with my son. I would recommend him to everyone I talk to.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 13, 2015

Very good.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 10, 2015

dr Amm came highly recommended, I trust that recommendation

OU Physicians Patient Jun 16, 2015

No medications given

OU Physicians Patient Jun 2, 2015

I can't recommend this doctor to others unless other children have the same condition as my daughter. Therefore, it is hard to recommend him. If they do, then yes, I would recommend him right away other then the wait time to get an appointment.

OU Physicians Patient May 28, 2015

the first place I have ever had care where staff names were memorable!

OU Physicians Patient Apr 28, 2015

Dr el amm has always asked me questions about my son and listened to my answers. he explains every question we have very well and always talks about what to expect with our next visit .

OU Physicians Patient Apr 16, 2015

staff and physician we all great. The waiting area is small. It would be nice to have more seating.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 14, 2015

Would recommend that the doctor sit down in the room, as opposed to loitering by the door the whole time, even if they have to kick someone off of the stool to do so. It makes patients feel that the provider has spent more time with them than usual.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 26, 2015
