    How was your appointment with Dr. Elkin?

    Apr 07, 2019
    I have been a patient of Dr. Elkin for over 20 years. The bad part is I met him in the ER after a heart attack. The good news he and his staff have done nothing but take great care of me over the years since that night. Through surgeries he has completed, testing he has done, referrals he gave me, the time he spends with me to consider my life and goals and he is always up to date on the latest health, meds, and testing. Thanks.
