Patient Comments (2)
New York |
i went to see Dr Elfenbein at the request of my insurance co. after my preferred doctor, a highly respected New York surgeon, advised that i needed surgery. I initially thought Dr Elfenbein was a patient as he could barely walk. He is an extremely weak mand and could not lift my leg to examine it. After 2 questions and 2 minutes exam he refused my doctors advise to get surgery. Dr Elfenbein is grossly incompetent. DO NOT SEE THIS DOCTOR

Unacceptable performance of medical examination. Claimed I had no injuries from a massive car accident.
