My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My approach to patient wellness is to truly focus on the whole person. I wish to explore with each patient what they see individually and what we can identify together as health goals. In my medical practice I already strive to clearly communicate findings and put a plan in place that can enhance wellness and reflect “best” practices.

I have been directly caring for patients since I was 17 years old. To say I have seen a lot in health care is an understatement. What I find especially timely now with MDVIP, is a health approach that gives the patient and doctor the needed time and resources to “personalize” a medical plan. I truly believe we all reflect multiple influences in our life choices. The constraints of regulations, non-medical office demands and even the EMR have contributed to significant limits in the physician-patient relationship. I feel with more direct time with the patient I can help guide patients to better, desired choices.

I found Dr. Nora Meaney-Elman a little over a year ago through MDVIP and finding her was the beginning of a new life for me. Dr. Meaney-Elman listened and heard what my ongoing issues were and how I struggled with my previous Doctor (or should I say nurse practitioner) to find relief. Dr. Meaney-Elman recognized the pain I was in and knew exactly what we were dealing with. She sent me for a… See more

from Kathryn in FL March 13, 2020 for Nora E. Meaney-Elman, MD

I cannot recall a single time, even before she joined MDVIP, that Dr. Elman was not available when I needed to be seen. She is not only extremely competent, she is also gracious, helpful, and always willing to go the extra mile. Thanks to her persistence and demand that a blood test not be considered "frivolous" or unwarranted, an insurance claim that had been denied was reversed… See more

Dr Elman was my doctor long before mdvip and when she changed over her practice to the mdvip, I thought about changing doctors for about 60 seconds and am so glad I didn’t switch and that shes still my doctor!! I come to her with some strange questions and symptoms and she always will tell me what she thinks prior to testing and after testing she is always spot on!! We have so much time… See more

from Karen in NY March 12, 2020 for Nora E. Meaney-Elman, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Elman for 33+? Years! She is an OUTSTANDING physician. When she informed me that she was moving her practice to MDVIP, I knew without question - that I would follow her anywhere! She is extremely attentive and provides care to her patients as if they were her own family. Her detailed and thoughtful approach has taken care of myself, my late mother and my kids for… See more

I have been a patient of Dr Nora Meaney-Elman for the past 25 years .

Never rushed, always friendly, always concerned and very knowledgeable is how I describe Dr Meaney-Elman. I send my "thank you" to her for… See more

from Joanie in NY March 11, 2020 for Nora E. Meaney-Elman, MD

Dr Elman is incomparable in her care of patients. She takes the time to listen and know her patients. She thinks beyond the apparent. I recently was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. When I visited the cardiologist the visit went quickly because Dr Elman had already sent me for all necessary tests so the cardiologist could move forward with treatment immediately since they had all… See more

from Eva in NY March 10, 2020 for Nora E. Meaney-Elman, MD

Dr Meaney Ellman helped my family through a tough time both physically and mentally. She always took her time to listen to the whole story which ultimately resulted in the right care for all of us. I looked forward to coming to my appointments as we would focus on my health in a way that made me feel cared for and safe. She is phenomenal in her approach with patients and even didn’t freak out… See more

from Ann Marie in NY March 19, 2018 for Nora E. Meaney-Elman, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Meaney-Elman for over 20 years and I could not ask for a more competent and caring doctor to oversee my health care, She leaves no stone unturned when listening to and discussing any health concern that I may have. She wants her patients to understand the who, what, where, and why of their health and their needs. With the advent of her practice being MDVIP I have… See more
