    DR. ELKAYAM IS A TRUE HEART DOCTOR! He's got heart to heal hearts- Physical heart, as well as the holistic being. He orchestrated his appointments to fit us in, in less than a week. Dr. Elkayam and his whole staff were great: thorough, asking specific detailed questions, gathering the information needed for analyzing of status prior to offering treatment plan; kind, offering water; sweet smiles... GREAT MIXTURE OF KNOWLEDGE, WISDOM, COMPASSION & HUMOR

    Dr. Elkayam is terrific. He is compassionate, caring, thorough, careful in his assessments, expert in his specialty, and he asks many questions to make sure he has accurate information about my current status to recommend the best steps back to full health. And he really listens. He as always made me feel like an active partner in my treatment. Although I know he is very busy, I have never felt like he was rushing me to move on to the next patient. I drive 3 hours to see him. He's worth it!

    Dr. Elkayam works with the technician, for example, when you have an Echocardiogram, so you know nothing is ever missed. He properly diagnosed me with a faulty valve and a blocked artery. He saw that I got the best treatment possible and monitored me, which gave me great confidence during my recovery. I am very grateful that I made the decision to put my heart medical issues in the hands of Dr. Elkayam! In addition to his technical knowledge he is an incredibly caring doctor!

    Dr. Elkayam is everything you want a Doctor to be. While he appears young, the way he cares for his patients is more old fashioned - he really cares about them. Everyone in his waiting room says the same thing! And everyone you meet all say "what a terrific doctor he is!" We all wish he was a specialist in every type of medicine - from feet to brain. He always answers your questions - regardless of the time of day or night. He was meant to be a Dr. of the Heart - he is so caring!

    Dr. Elkayam's Care Philosophy

    LE Heart Center's philosophy is to treat each patient as we would treat a member of our own family, personally and clinically.

    Prevention is important. Our medical team stresses disease prevention through lifestyle modification and when appropriate with medication.

    Dr. Elkayam says...

    At the "heart" of matters is of course our cardiovascular system. Depending on your age, risk factors, and symptoms, we will order appropriate cardiovascular diagnostic testing which may include a stress test, echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart), and other non-invasive testing in order to make sure that your heart is in good health.Having performed and interpreted hundreds of stress tests, being board certified in echocardiography and cardiovascular medicine, and, perhaps most importantly, possessing a consistent track record of providing real attention and medical partnership to his patients, you can be assured that your heart is in good hands with Dr. Elkayam.
