I work at a fellow sleep apnea treatment facility and have had patients referred by Dr. Elkus. Although we have never met, every patient that I get the chance to speak with cannot say enough about her. The patient always mentions that Dr. Elkus is from a time where you knew your patients by name and asked them about their life, and that is not something that is very prevalent in medicine today. It means a lot to the patients so it means a lot to us as well. Very knowledgeable about all things sleep and easy to work with.
