Elena Mann, MD is an OB/GYN with Life Coast Community Health Center. She supports her patients on an individual level with compassion and empathy during this sacred time in their lives.

Why did you choose to go into the medical field?

“When I was contemplating my career choice, I wanted to help people on an individual basis and also to help the community as a whole. A career in medicine was the best way in which I could help to educate, inspire, motivate, and change lives.

What is your favorite part of practicing medicine?

My favorite part of practicing medicine is experiencing the joy of childbirth with families. It is an honor to be a part of such an amazing experience. The journey leading up to and ushering in a new life into the world is a sacred and intimate bonding experience.

What is your least favorite part of what you do?

My least favorite part of practicing medicine is having to deliver bad news. For example, revealing a diagnosis of a fetal death or a cancer diagnosis is such an emotionally heart-wrenching experience for the patient, their families, and myself.

What do your clients say about you?

I would like to believe that my ideal clients would say that I am compassionate and empathetic. They would say that I listen and treat them as I would my own family and how I would want to be treated in the same situation.
