As a family physician, Dr. Elian is trained to provide optimal medical care by looking at the whole person, rather than focusing on just one organ system. In addition to diagnosing and treating acute and chronic illnesses, Dr. Elian provides routine health screenings and counseling on lifestyle changes in an effort to prevent illnesses before they develop.

“Although Dr. Elian is new to the Tri-State community, her husband Omar Wattad, who is the top assistant coach for the men’s basketball team at Lincoln Memorial University, has been living in the community and is starting his fifth season with the LMU team,” said Michael Slusher, Middlesboro ARH Community CEO. “We are excited to have her here in Middlesboro and seeing patients at the new ARH Cumberland Valley Medical and Surgical Associates clinic.”

Dr. Elian is accepting new patients. Her office is located at 3504 West Cumberland Avenue, Middlesboro. Dr. Elian offers daytime and evening appointments. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 606-248-0737.
