I feel so blessed that I was able to have Dr. Ellenbogen as my surgeon for the surgeries I needed to remove my pituitay brain tumors. I was touched by how caring and genuine he was. My surgeries went better then I could have imaged with an amazingly fast recovery. I dont think there is another surgeon that could hold a candle to him. There is no doubt in my mind he is the best you will find!

Dr. Richard Ellenbogen is amazing. My son had arnold chiari surgery at Children's Hospital and is doing great. Dr. Ellenbogen took so much time with us and assured us that all would be ok. He has been a huge blessing in our lives. I will never forget him and how he has helped our family. He is truly one of a kind.. Thank you!!!!!

I love this man! He is very patient, understanding.. and so very good at explaining and answering all your questions. Everything about him excedes my expectations.. He is a very busy, wanted surgeon & teacher and if you need help and want the best... have patience to become his patient! He rocked my surgery! Dec 06
