Dr. Elkin’s command of the art and science of psychiatry make him an excellent physician. Beyond that he has a gift for genuinely hearing what his patients are saying and taking the true meaning from their words. He notices things beyond psychiatry about his patients. He treats the whole person and addresses the physical illness that may be affecting psychological issues. He refers to other specialists to participate in his patients’ care.
Over the last year Dr. Elkin has shepherded our family through the acute illness of a family member. He has remained steadfastly at our side and has done all in his power to be sure that the course of treatment was optimal and that our family member was showing improvement over time. He has made a very distressing time feel safer by giving us the information we need to respond to the needs of our family member. We feel very blessed to have had Dr. Elkin treating our family member and to have had his expertise and kindness to guide them toward recovery.
