Dr. Elkin interviewed by Larry Goodman on his podcast, Success after 55!

Dr. Elkin enjoys a more preventive approach in which patients are intimately involved with their health. Dr. Elkin may act as the “quarterback”, but the patient is the ultimate player in his or her own healthcare.

What Dr. Elkin talks about: 

  • Known as the preventative care doctor. His focus is on wellness.

  • Stresses the importance of being your own health advocate.

  • Talks about how diets have changed over the years and why so many Americans are overweight.

  • Tip: Allow yourself a cheat meal (not a cheat day)!

  • Advice: Eat healthy 80% of the time.
