Kori Elkins, MD

Retina Specialist

We are pleased to welcome Dr. Kori Elkins to Las Vegas!! Dr. Elkins joins us after serving thirteen years as the senior vitreoretinal surgeon at Tidewater Eye Centers in Portsmouth, Virginia.

Dr. Elkins grew up in Idaho and obtained her undergraduate degree from the University of Idaho in Moscow, Idaho. She obtained her Medical Degree (M.D.) from Tulane University in New Orleans, LA. She stayed on at Tulane to serve as chief intern after medical school. Dr. Elkins elected to pursue a career in ophthalmology, and completed her ophthalmology residency training at the prestigious Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. She was then accepted to the Retina Surgery Fellowship Program at the University of Iowa, in Iowa City, which consistently ranks among the top 10 ophthalmology training programs in the country.

After her fellowship training, she joined Tidewater Eye Centers in Portsmouth, Virginia. During this time, she served as Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at the Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, VA, where she taught ophthalmology residents and was awarded the “Ophthalmology Professor of the Year” award in 2018. During her time at Tidewater, she gained extensive experience in all aspects of retinal disease and retinal surgery, and was voted “Top Doc” multiple times due to her excellent patient care.

Dr. Elkins recently decided to relocate to Las Vegas to be closer to family, and to enjoy the beautiful Mojave Desert. When she is not working she enjoys skiing, biking, running, reading and cooking.

Dr. Elkins will be seeing patients out of our North Las Vegas and Summerlin area offices starting February 1, 2024.
