Can I write these using a Lambda expression?:

            var query = from xElem in doc.Descendants("Patient")
                        select new Patient(xElem);


            XElement xml = new XElement("Patients",
                from p in this
                select p.XElement);

No, lambda expressions themselves are not a replacement for LINQ. I think that you mean extension methods, which use lambda expressions as part of the syntax:

var query = doc.Descendants("Patient").Select(xElem => new Patient(xElem);

XElement xml = new XElement("Patient", this.Select(p => p.XElement));
