Extremely disappointed. I have a feeling he didn't put his records on computer and therefore wasn't allowed to practice. He was well aware of this and never told his patients the truth. Just hung us out to dry.

Wonderful care! Always returned calls. This recent time without care was confusing, but I’m relieved Dr. El Borno is planning on returning in New Year! Grateful for the treatment received already and pray things are ok for the doctor. Good Bless!

He abdonned me. Literally. Went to appointment, he was a no show. No call or explanation. Just left with stupid answering system saying that if I needed refills on meds to go to family doctor. I did, and she was annoyed that he didn't at least refer me out to another doctor. Don't get me wrong, I think that Dr. ElBorno is a good person, but when you ghost your patients, it's time to move on.

Dr. El-Borno is highly inappropriate with his patients and pushes pills without first taking the time to understand his their issues and history.

I haven’t be able to see Dr. El-Borno for a few years due to the office no longer accepting my insurance. I still recommend him to everyone I know searching for a psychiatrist. He listened and worked with me to find the best medicines for me. I’ve been diagnosed with Bipolar and social anxiety for about 10 years now. Thank you, Dr. B, for always making me laugh and most importantly never making me feel like any less of a person or a burden because of my diagnosis’s.

Not impressed. Saw him a couple of times and the level of care went south after a couple of visits. Saw in Lancaster office.

Dr. El Borno is the best!!! I have been seeing him since I was a child along with my family. He is family!! He has been there for us for 26 years! The only Dr. I have ever trusted. The support he gives is amazing! He just knows how to treat his patients. His knowledge is top notch! Really helped me and continues to help. I love the confidence he has given me! Anytime I ever had an issue with my meds he always listens and really cares and works with you to find what works. #1 in my book!!!

Dr El-Borno is a god send. He is down to earth, open, honest and upfront with you. He speaks to you, not at you; and he treats you like a friend, not just a patient. I lost my daughter in 2012 and he has helped me deal with the grief, anxiety and depression since her death. I will forever be grateful for him and his help. A gentle soul, with vast knowledge and a genuine doctor who wants to help, not just prescribe medication. I can’t say enough about this amazing man!!

Borno is an absolutely amazing person no doubt about it. I’ve been seeing him for years, other doctors couldn’t find the solution to all my problems. I went for years to others, And didn’t find peace until I stumbled across this wonderful man. Truly caring, he’s respectful, friendly, and such a goofball. His office is always a good environment. He has truly changed my life. He knows it’s almost like he can take the words off the tip of your tounge, and almost like he feels what you’re feeling.

After struggling for over a year with Post Concussion Depression my daughter stayed on the phone for over an hour looking for a psychiatric doctor. Dr. El-Borno was #12 on her list, He accepted her as a patient. That was 6 weeks ago. Today thanks to his help I have my daughter back. She is up every morning ready for the day, able to once again go to her retail job and deal with the public. He has her on a perfect 'cocktail' for her. She is not drowsy nor hyper, She is just HER bless you

Yesterday was our first appointment with Dr. El-Borno and we couldn't be happier. I was going to get a second opinion as we were unhappy with my daughter's current psychiatrist who never gave us a diagnosis for her treatment and seemed to be "trying" out different medications over the past six months; some with very negative effects on my teenage daughter. After one visit with Dr. El-Borno, we not only have a diagnosis, but positive steps towards getting her healthy again. Highly recommended!

Got an appointment super quickly after calling. Dr. El-Borno himself is super friendly and very knowledgeable. He actually diagnosed me and explained the reasons for taking the medication he prescribed. Trust me when I say I have had other doctors who just write you a prescription and say here take this, with no explanation. Easily the best doctor I have ever had.

I remember being told "He's the very best" when I was referred by my family doctor to see this psychiatrist. It didn't take long for me to appreciate why......he's just outstanding in every way. Top notch care from a diamond in the rough. I understand that he's now helping a new premier practice grow in Blue Bell, PA. They're very lucky, as are their clients.

I love this man's brain, but he is very hard to get a hold of and does not return calls- sometimes even when you go to the office. Regardless, the only man I'll let mess with my head.
