Ellen Vora, M.D.

Ellen Vora, MD graduated from Columbia University medical school, received her B.A. in English from Yale University, and is a board-certified psychiatrist, acupuncturist, and yoga teacher. Dr. Vora takes a functional medicine approach to mental health–considering the whole person and addressing the problem at the root, rather than reflexively prescribing medication to suppress symptoms. In addition to seeing patients, Dr. Vora also writes, blogs, contributes to two healthcare startups, and does corporate wellness presentations.

Testimonials
"“Dr. Vora is truly an incredible doctor! She understands the value and importance of treating her patients from a holistic approach, and it has absolutely changed my life! Her intellect, compassion, and patience are just a few of many traits she practices with each and every one of her patients. She is the best of the best, and I can’t imagine having any other doctor besides Dr. Vora!”"
— Ashley
"Her mind-body-spirit approach along with patience and persistence proved miraculous again and I gradually became symptom free. Without medication. My skin has cleared up, my lifelong horrible PMS has dissipated, I now wake up refreshed, enjoy better interpersonal relationships, and found new passions and directions. Most importantly, I’m a happier, healthier, more balanced mother to my daughter. For all this, I feel truly blessed to have had the privilege of being Dr. Vora’s patient and will forever be grateful to her."
— Julie
