Not worth even a poor rating, but the system won't allow you to submit unless you mark something.

Positive Comments

I tolerated his rude comments, lack of care and better than thou attitude because I believed I was at one of the best neurological places in Michigan. Maybe I was just given the absolute worst doctor in the clinic.

Negative Comments

This doctor is a complete waste of your time. Someone like Dr. Ellenbogen should be put in a room without a window to do medical research, not dealing with patients when his social skills are so primitive.

General Comments

I turned to this place because I truly felt that everyday I was getting closer to the point where there would be no way to reverse or stabilize the decline. After 4 months of providing him with every record I could have transferred to him from three different hospitals and various radiology reports, including hand delivering discs to his office, he failed to respond to three phone calls to set a third appointment to discuss the results, he gave me the message through his staff that he couldn't see anything in the files and couldn't do anything. He wouldn't even speak on the phone. He left me just stunned that he basically didn't have the time to provided me with any guidance or suggestions on what to do. I should have known he was completely unethical when his first question in the first visit was, "I NEED TO KNOW IF YOU ARE JUST HERE FOR A SECOND OPINION, AS I'M NOT GOING TO RUN ALL KINDS OF TESTS AND SPEND LOTS OF TIME IF IT IS"!!!!!!!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME. Doctor, you need to go back and read your apparently long-forgotten HIPPOCRATIC OATH, ass you have violated virtually every word of it. The ratings of this doctor vary from one end of the spectrum to the other with nothing in between. That usually indicates that the real patients are very dissatisfied and the doctors staff is forced to write an excellent rating to out-balance the overall rating in favor of this doctor. All the negative ratings have substantiated their disappointment with actual comments.

A kind, caring professional who is conservative, yet will work with you to provide the best care. Keenly observant, knowledgable, kind physician. A teaching doctor.

Horrible, I left several messages over a 6 day period and none of which were returned. The Call Center told me "Not to sound funny but 6 days is pretty good with Dr. Really?! The administrator does not return calls even after several messages

"only good thing about this office!"
Friendly Staff
"his assistant gave me the wrong information. i had specifically asked him a question and he directed me the wrong way. the office admitted he was wrong. i should've known then, this office was a joke!"
Fair and Accurate Diagnosis
"his only concern was to rule out MS. he ran 2 tests on me, both had abnormalities and he said everything was normal and cancelled my appt with me, despite the fact i have numerous questions for him. yes, i have all my test results and reports, i can read what they say. he didn't bother to test for other neurological problems. "
Spends Time with Patients
"despite my lengthy list of questions, he refused to see me. he doesn't want to spend time with patients. he wants to shuffle as many $ through his door as possible. patient choice award? that's laughable!"
Appropriate Follow-up
"he sent me for mri and lumbar puncture and i never saw him again to discuss the results! he scheduled the appt, then cancelled it on me. he's not who you want to see. don't believe the patient's choice awards hype. i'm looking for a doctor who will help me and when i find them, this guy is getting a lawsuit!"

Positive Comments

NONE!! how bout that? i can say nothing positive about him, other than he didn't smell like B.O.

Negative Comments

too many to list! he wouldn't even follow up with an appt to discuss my results, even though i told his staff i have a list of questions. he didnt care!
