Sheldon Elman, MD
Dr. Elman opened his first clinic in 1987 with the goal of treating health issues before they become medical problems, not once they are diagnosed. Over the years, Dr. Elman made it his mission to provide his patients with the highest quality care and oversaw Medisys’ growth from a single-office provider of executive health services to Canada’s leading national corporate healthcare service provider with clinics nationwide.
Despite being the Executive Chairman of Medisys Health Group and actively serving on several boards, Dr. Elman is still a practicing physician who always puts his patients first. “I want to make sure we are offering our patients the latest, cutting edge technology and equipment and leading evidence-based medical treatments, advice and care in a way that is as comfortable, personalized, and as comprehensive as it can be.”
