Dr. Elias and a Commitment to Outstanding Service

Dr. Raouf Elias assumed leadership of Roseville Medical Society in the 1970s, setting an excellent standard of care by handling all patient concerns with the utmost tenderness. His dedication to the community garnered him a reputation throughout Newark, NJ, and the surrounding areas.

Dr. Elias had an impressive medical background in Essex County. He served at Saint Michael’s Medical Center in Newark, Clara Maass Medical Center in Belleville, and the former Columbus Hospital and United Hospitals in Newark. He was medical director at Alaris Health at Cedar Grove, president of the medical staff at Columbus Hospital, and held a position on the executive board of Saint Michael’s Medical Center. This noteworthy career landed him a nomination for Doctor of the Year in Essex County.

Dr. Salerno Continues the Promise of Providing Care

In 2015, Dr. Alexander G. Salerno, Dr. Elias’ son-in-law, came to Roseville Medical Society to assist him in serving families. With Dr. Elias’ passing in February 2016, Dr. Salerno carried on his father-in-law’s legacy of building relationships with patients and the community at large. He and other physicians continue to run Roseville Medical Society under Nirvana Healthcare Management Services, keeping the memory of Dr. Elias alive by following his approach when caring for families.

Patient Quote:

“Dr. Elias was my mother’s physician for many years. He was a true humanitarian. My mom use to talk about how great a doctor he was. He really cared for and loved his patients. We miss the authenticity of heart-felt doctors today. We offer condolences to Dr. Elias’ family. It is 2021 and Dr. Elias came into my heart this morning. RIP.” – Sandy Rucker

Expanding the Mission of Patient-Centered Care

With Dr. Alexander Salerno continuing the legacy of his father-in-law in 2015, Roseville Medical Society became part of a long history of the Salerno family serving patients in Essex County, NJ. It enabled Dr. Salerno to bring the compassionate, family-centered care to Newark that his parents, Drs. Alphonse and Svetlana Salerno, first brought to East Orange in the 1950s.

Dr. Alexander Salerno’s father believed in a phrase originally coined by Benjamin Franklin in 1736 — “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. Dr. Elias also agreed with the sentiment and the perspective enables Roseville Medical Society to prioritize prevention over reactive treatment. With this approach, patients receive proactive treatment as opposed to reactive medicine after a disease or disorder develops. Ultimately, this mentality helps patients receive better overall health and wellness.
