Dr Elkins is a wonderful, courteous, honest, and professional doctor. However, I had a lot of problems with his billing staff who were very aggressive with insurance billing and collecting from me the last $ that insurance did not pay the office. After making an appointment for a follow I got a phone call from his billing staff telling me that before I can see Dr Elkins on the day of appointment I have to pay my remaining balance of $24 plus my insurance deductible for the year 2016. This is the first time any doctor office has asked me to pay my insurance deductible before I can see the doctor.

I have been seeing Dr. Elkins for about 3 years for my annual eye exams. I finally made the decision to have the LASIK done. It was a wonderful experience. From the beginning to the end was great. He explained what to expect and every step of the procedure as it was happening. I was up and reading the clock across the room in twenty minutes. I am very happy with my decision to have the LASIK and having Dr. Elkins perform it.

I'm extremely nearsighted and I've been in contacts and glasses for over 40 years. Dr. Elkins just did LASIK on my eyes, and it really is a miracle. There are other places that I could have got the surgery cheaper, but who are you going to trust your eyes with? My entire family and I have been with Dr. Elkins for the longest time. I'm so grateful Dr. Elkins has given me the gift of site, I will be forever grateful. Thank you!!!

I've been seeing Dr. Elkins for many years now, and he's always been very helpful. When it came to my cataracts problem, he recommended something I never heard of, the torrec lens. He said it would go beyond my expectations and it really did. My whole experience with Dr. Elkins has been a real love affair. He's wonderful, personal, warm, and passionate.
