Patient Comments (1)

Dr. Elkind was very thorough and attentive, in both his examination and his explanations. He spent more time with me than any other doctor I have seen in my 78 years. The wait was very short, the relevant tests were scheduled immediately and also seemed more thorough than what I had experienced...more
