October 2023
There are not adequate words to explain the respect I have for Dr. Ellenbogen. From the first visit over 2 years ago he was kind, compassionate, understanding and let me ask all kinds of questions. Follow up visits last year and this year were the same. Dr. Ellenbogen gave me my life back and I will be forever grateful for him. From the first visit when I was somewhat frightened and overwhelmed by everything, he looked me in the eyes as he stood in front of me and assured me, "we ARE going to fix you". And, with God's help, he did. Thank you so much!
August 2023
I have known Dr. E for over a decade. Over that time he has not only provided me with superb care and an ablation that worked perfectly until the stress of a diverticular explosion set my heart off and running, but he has provided insights that have enabled me to lessen risks associated with aFib going forward. He is also a highly empathetic human being. He's one of my heroes. My visit yesterday was no exception - good advice, helpful scheduling, careful listening. I'm lucky to have him as my heart doc.

Dr. Ellenbogen is phenomenal. He has assisted me in immeasurable ways in addressing a serious heart issue. He has searched doggedly for answers to "what is causing" my weakened heart. Dr. E. Has called me several times in and outside of regular office hours to address key questions I had about test results. He fast-tracked the most important test in my series-a cardiac MRI. He is smart, accessible, caring and probably the most dedicated physician I have ever known. He also is a world-class pathbreaker in his field, searching for new approaches to treating patients. His staff is excellent. I feel fortunate to have him as my cardiologist. [...]

Dr. Ellenbogen is my cardiologist who was highly recommended by my primary care physician Dr. Sonia Shah-Pandya. Due to some heart related issues, Dr. Ellenbogen ordered a lab work after my appointment with him. The next morning he personally called me to say that one of the important tests came back with very good results. Neither my wife nor I can thank Dr. Ellenbogen enough for creating a sense of calm and comfort with us as a result of his phone call.
