    in Mandeville, LA |
    Dr. Elkayam was on call when our 83 yr old mother was admitted to the hospital in Covington, LA for what appears to have been a stroke. Dr. Elkayam diagnosed her with Wernicki Korsencoff due to her bariatric surgery a few years ago. She's deficient in Vit B1 - Thymine! If his diagnosis is correct, then he saved her life! We are all thankful for that! However, this guy is so full of himself it's unreal! He was more interested in flirting with our aunt, than anything.

    Dr. Elkayam was a God's sent! I had been trying (unsuccessfully) to see a neurologist, for a while now the ones I called were too busy for new patients or would give me an appointment months from when I called, so I went down the list of neurologist in my area and I found him. His receptionist (Debbie) was extremely helpful and assisted me with all the forms, insurance and everything else, his nurse ( I forgot her name) was also very nice, and then the doctor, he was also very helpful and nice
