    If you are looking for a doctor who not only is clinically excellent but is a leader in her field, then I would recommend my colleague Dr Sarah Elkin. She works both in the hospital but also in the community so she understands what things are like for patients on every level. She is down to earth and takes time to explain things to her patients, who are always happy to be under her care. Most importantly she is kind. I would highly recommend her.
