Surprised to read negative reviews of Dr. Eilhu. He was wonderful and did his best to put me at ease during my surgery. He asked about my job and family, which I felt was more to make me feel relaxed and to take my mind off of what was going on. He answered all my questions and did not make me feel rushed at all.

I went to kaiser for a procedure and was very nervous about my situation. Not only did Dr Elihu ease my mind and very considerately cared about my feelings, he did a rather complicated surgery leaving barely a scar. For that, and his happy personality throughout the entire process, I am thankful to be alive and give praise to this man who quite easily could have treated me like a number rather that the compassion he shows to all. Thank you so much doctor!

Went in for a cosmetic surgery to remove a cyst. Dr elihunleft me with a HUGE scar, mich bigger and uglier than the original scar. Went to another surheon a few months later to inquire about scar treatment, and he asked "who did this to you?!"

Dr. Elihu has the bedside manner of a rock. He is an egotistical person that thinks he is better than anyone. He is rude and self centered. I wouldn't want him to get anywhere near me with anything sharp.

I had a very traumatic experience with Dr. Elihu which left me in tears and feeling violated. He failed as a doctor to educate me and prepare me for after visit care prior to doing a procedure in which I remained awake and could feel the pain due to the local anesthesia not working. Although I was crying and screaming, he remained unmoved and insensitive, continuing to cut into me without giving me more numbing meds, made numerous inappropriate comments throughout the precedes and did not ease my discomfort physically and emotionally. He was very unprofessional, lacked beside manners, and did not ease me but rather added anxiety and fear into me as he was cutting open my back. On a professional & basic human level, my physician and his/her staff were not sensitive to my surgical experience and post-surgical needs. I needed to speak with the department manager who had a different nurse explain how to tend to an open would located in the middle of my back.
