What People Say About Dr. Cinthia Elkins, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Elkins is the worst physician I have ever been to. She doesn't respond to her MyChart messages, and if you ask her about it, she blames it on her staff or claims it was a technical glitch. I could see that happening once, but not every single time. The last time I was in her office, I had to sit in an exam room for over an hour, and received no apology and 5 minutes of her time. She pushes a lot of office visits on her patients, which feels like a money grab. She's no longer my Physician

Dr. Elkins is very unhelpful. She has patients waiting for long periods of time and rushes through the appointment. Does not seem to to value the patients time and concerns. She references to other treatment plans used with other patients when meeting with you. Does not treat her patients like and individual .She dis values their opinions and is quick to prescribe medications. She always has me waiting for at least 30 mins. She claimed I was late. That was due to checkin at the front

Dr. Elkins was a major disappointment. From the beginning my appointments were rushed and I felt she was not very thorough or concerned. I was scheduled for an 18 week ultrasound and when I returned for a follow up visit she never discussed it with me. 10 weeks later I learned there were concerns on the u/s that needed to be addressed. She is negligent and unprofessional. I asked to be referred to another OB after she left an appointment early and called in sick to another.

For one's first visit and annual physical all Dr. Elkins performs is listening to lungs & heart; does she order blood work (comprehensive panel or otherwise), unless requests i, and only after one's visit. She is very slow to answer messages to her on My Chart; her staff does not answer at all. She does not send permissions for tests she has authorized, so when one arrives for a test, it hasn't been authorized and thus cannot take place. Staff do not act in a professional manner.
