Seattle, WA |
Excellent bedside manner. Just gives you a warm feeling when discussing your options. Suggested I graduate from college before having my cranitomomy to remove a tumor from the posterior fossa of my brain. He removed it 100 percent with no further complications I am in recovery as we speak and well on my way to being back to normal.

Dr. Ellenbogen is wonderful. He removed my meningioma tumor soon after I was diagnosed with a genetic condition, and his bedside manner helped me tremendously in my recovery. When I came back to Harborview in a few months to have another tumor removed by a different doctor, I mentioned to a nurse that I wish I could see him before I went into surgery, and he was there in a few minutes. I miss this surgeon!
