Cardiology Testimonials

"Dr. Elkin sees his patient as a complete body, and supports the idea that you partner with him in deciding the best ways of preventing and treating disease. He has given me the option of preventing disease today, rather than just treating it later."  
- S. Martinez

"I always thought if I were ever to need a cardiologist I would want it to be Dr. Howard Elkin, becaus of what I knew of his professional and personal ethics.
After my husband's death 12 years ago, I developed chest pains and was referred to Dr. Elkin. My Dcision to becom a permanent patient was based on Dr. Elkin's focus on preventing problems before they occur. Dr. Elkin has created the HeartWise program that provides his patients with service, information and training. This covers a range of topics including stress management, nutrition, exercise and heart monitoring.
My life has been enriched by his philosophy of medicine, professional guidance and caring."
- M. Lacey

- B. Martin

"Dr. Howard Elkin’s specialty is cardiology, but he treats more than the heart of the patient."
