For the past 22 years I have had the exceptionally good fortune to know you and have you as a trusted psychiatrist. You are an outstandiing human being and physician. You have supported and guided me in a wide variety of life's challenges and made yourself available to help me in any way you could. Seeing you has made some of life's challenges more bearable. You are extremely knowledgeable in a myriad of areas and willing to share that with others.. You are a loving and kind person and one of the most benevolent people I have known. I hope you are well and that what ever the situation is that you will prevail.

While standing at your office door on Monday, trying to find an answer to your unexpected absence, I had the good fortune of speaking with another patient of yours. She said she had known you for 25 years and raved about your qualities as a doctor and human being. While we stood there, four other patients came along. Everyone's first concern was that you were ok.

Like everyone else, I will need to find a temporary fill in for you, although it will not be the same. I hope that your absence is short-lived and that our journey can continue. Here's wishing you excellent health, strength, stamina and wisdom to bring whatever it is to swift resolution.

If I can help or support you any way, I will be honored to do so. Thanks for being there for me With much fondness and appreciation.

I don't know what has happened to Dr. El-Borno, but I wanted to thank him for all of the excellent medical care over the past 25 yrs. I wish him the best of luck. Now me and my at least 6 referred patients I sent him can quick scramble to find another Dr. I am sure it won't be easy, and we won't find such a caring, competent Dr.
