Are you a patient of Richard Ellenbogen, MD?
1 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Show More Very dismissive. Denies any wrongdoing. Keeps patients waiting. Does not take responsibility for when he messes up. Did not finish my surgery. He walked out before he was done. The nurse in the OR took me by wheelchair to my car and kept apologizing to me for him not finishing. He pretended he "didn't know what happened". Refused to send me my records, which is a violation of state law.

Show More I met with Dr. Ellenbogen and his coordinator, Jenna, yesterday afternoon. The office is a few hours from where I live, and I was running about 30 minutes late for my appointment. Jenna had coorosponded with me previously to confirm my apointment via text, so I texted her that I was running late (very convenient method of communication) She was so kind and flexible, as she did not make me feel bad at all. When I arrived, I was brought in immediately with zero was time. Jenna took some photos of me and then Dr. Ellenbogen came in to make an assessment. Dr. First looked at my face directly and tested the elasticity of my skin in different areas. Due to the unusual amount of laxity in my skin for someone my age, Dr. Recommended a mini-vertical facelift focusing mostly on neck, and basically all-over fat grafting. My facial images were then uploaded into a large computer screen where Dr. Was able to show me what areas he felt could be improved, and how I would (hypothetically) look after my recommended procedure. He explained that he did not want to take too much skin as I would look stretched...he said that what he does is little nips and tucks where it's needed, combined with added volume, for a most natural look. He showed me also how my scars would be virtually invisible ir undetectable. I have actually had fat grafting done by Dr. Ellenbogen in the past (8 years ago) and it looked amazing and lasted several years! I trust this surgeon a lot, I know first-hand that he is an artist and a caring person. He made me at ease, he was not pushy or rude in any way at all. I'm really optimistic about this procedure!! I will post pictures soon...

Show More Dr. Ellenbogen is a genius and a true artist. When I flew to LA for my consultation, he spent a good bit of time with me reviewing my case and his recommendations. The coolest thing he did was to take a photo of me, then he pulled out paint and a paintbrush and he painted onto the photo what my new nose would look like. I was so thrilled with his vision (and the fact that I had something to take home to show my family and friends.) I drove to Beverly Hills with my Mom and camped out for a week for the surgery and recovery. Dr. Ellenbogen was so warm, comforting (and he brought just the right amount of humor to put me at ease.) The results of the surgery are amazing; they look exactly like the photo that he'd painted for me. People look at me now and tell me they would never have known I had my nose done because it looks so natural. (And, I can tell you, prior to my surgery, my nose was a hot mess - depending on the angle you looked at me from, I looked like three different people and there wasn't a lot of material left for him to work with.) I really don't know how he did it, but kudos to Dr. Ellenbogen - I highly recommend him.

Show More It was difficult for me to trust since I have been so unhappy with my other rhinoplastys. Dr. Ellenbogen was kind and very empathetic to my psychological state. He listened to every concern and earned my trust after me going back 6 times to talk with him.

Show More Dr. Ellenbogen was exceedingly helpful. He answered all my questions and made the process very enjoyable. He is also great to work with and is very personable. I would highly recommend Dr. Ellenbogen because of how much experience he has and how well the procedure went.
