She treats patients of all ages with homeopathic treatments that are aimed at enhancing the body's ability to heal itself. To date, Dr. Elmaleh has had over 20,000 patient visits strictly for homeopathic treatment of chronic medical illnesses. For many of these, Western medicine is not successful and/or likely to be associated with disturbing side effects.
Dr. Elmaleh received her medical doctorate (M.D.) from the University of Maryland Medical School in Baltimore. Trained and board-certified in Family Practice, she then went on to complete additional training in Homeopathic Medicine.

At BHU, she was the Medical Director for six years, supervising a staff of about 15 practitioners and nurses, as well as overseeing an expansion of the center from 5,000 patient visits a year when she took over to 15,000 when she left. While there, she also saw patients and practiced as a family physician, combining allopathic (conventional) and homeopathic therapeutic approaches.
In 1989, Dr. Elmaleh started her current practice. At the same time, she participated in a three-year course in Homeopathic Medicine and also did several internships in France in homeopathic hospitals, homeopathic health centers and homeopathic physicians' private offices, some of whom are leading homeopaths in France and in the world.
She has lectured on homeopathic medicine in many different settings, including medical schools, residency programs, and conventional medical conferences. She has also taught a two-year course to physicians through Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City.
