Patient Comments (6)

Gave her the benefit of the doubt and went back for a follow up appointment only to be even more frustrated with her behavior than the first visit. Have since left and will not...more

She is rude, sloppy and doesn't listen to people. She has her own agenda on what she wants done. I asked about my heart and she set me for every test except a heart exam. She is just padding the insurance companies pockets. I sent a message though my chart. She again responded rudely.

First impression of Dr. Elkins was that she is very sloppy and has her own agenda for her patients, doesn't care about input from patient's family.

Dr. Elkins is a wonderful Doctor and person. She is very caring and tells you like it is. She explains everything to you in a way you can understand. I would highly recommend her as a doctor and I have and that person speaks very highly of her too!??
