Patient Comments (1)
in Santa Monica, CA |
Dr. Ellenhorn is simply the best. I trusted my life with him and I am so glad I did. I cannot thank him enough for the remarkable care he gave me. How could I adequately thank this man who spent much of his young adult life studying and learning the most advanced ideas and techniques in his field, in order to save lives? One's youth can never be recovered, and I honor him for his choices. I wish him all blessings in his life and career, for the dedication and skill he brings to his patients.
