My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

At Main Line Internal Medicine, my team and I are devoted to providing compassionate, personalized healthcare in a warm and supportive setting, a true medical home. We are a concierge style practice that focuses on wellness and health maintenance, and aggressively treats acute illness as well as chronic conditions. My staff and I coordinate tests and procedures and expedite specialist appointments. I am available to each patient during and after hours. I visit my patients if they are admitted to Paoli Hospital and facilitate follow up after discharge.

I am a university trained Internal Medicine specialist with over 20 years of clinical experience in primary care. I have practiced medicine at large urban academic centers and community hospitals. I established my current practice in 2000, and have developed strong relationships with a select group of medical and surgical specialists both within and outside the Main Line Health system. Now, with my MDVIP affiliation, we will have a national specialist network available to us as well.

I bring experience, expertise, compassion, humor and a certain amount of tenacity to bear when I approach patient care. I have found that meaningful conversation with my patients is as important as a blood test or x-ray. I want to know about diet, sleep and exercise habits, relationships, concerns and joys. I base a patient’s health plan or prescription on a synthesis of the personal and the technological data. In short, I treat my patients as members of my family. I believe this approach is the key to effective healthcare.

from Paula May 13, 2017 for Elana Nudel Kripke, MD

medicine is an art as well as a science.
for many physicians it is a science only and they treat illness and disease but few, due to lack of time, knowledge or desire, actively promote wellness.
Dr. Kripke works with her patients to promote wellness in mind and body.
She deeply cares for her patients and cares for them very well.
She listens to problems and helps to… See more

from Bruce and Norma March 30, 2017 for Elana Nudel Kripke, MD

From our first appointment with Dr. Kripke,16 years ago, we have found her kindness, compassion, caring and support (not to mention her expertise) truly remarkable. She has seen us through some difficult times with all the professionalism and understanding for which one could hope.
We think she walks on water!

from Ernest March 30, 2017 for Elana Nudel Kripke, MD

Elana Kripke is one of the top three reasons why I haven't moved to Florida permanently! I cannot imagine finding another doctor who is as patient-oriented, approachable and non-judgmental as Elana is! The doctor-patient relationship was great before she became an MDVIP doc and it's even better today because she's able to spend more time with me and other patients in a non-… See more
