Patient Comments (4)
Dr Elkins is a very caring, skilled, brilliant physician who I would recommend highly! He is a life saver!!
in Calico Rock, AR |
He has done a triple bypass and repaired my AAA stent and trust him completely.
in Bull Shoals, AR |
caring,and appears to know his stuff
in Mountain Home, AR |
I would not recommend him as I went in and needed a 6 way bypass during which he bruised my heart and it stopped beating. The installed a pump in my goin which cut off circulation to my leg. My family told the nurses and doctors that I had lost circulation in my leg but they let me lay there until my leg died then tried to ship me off to another hospital to fix their mistakes and amputate the leg.. I would rather take an ambulance ride to another hospital than let him operate on me again.
