Specialties

Dr. Fredrick Ellyin has the following 2 specialties

  • Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism

    An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
    Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

you may regret it.

His staff is very unprofessional and he stopped caring about his patients. The man needs to retire and not treat illnesses we may not even have or vice versa.

Five Stars

At first, I thought he would be too old for a doctor... But, after talking to him-- he makes sure that you will feel better with his jokes and what not... And good thing about him is, he would suggest using natural cure than prescribing medication right away. He will explain the things that a regular person like me will understand.Getting an appointment is about 2-3 weeks wait. But, I would say it is worth it.With the staff, they are really nice and pleasant to talk to. I didn't have any trouble with them.

Old school, very knowledgeable

Dr. Ellyin is a very smart, experienced doctor. I would suggest being your own advocate, as I never receive a call about test results even when they come back abnormal. If you want test results, it usually takes 3-4 calls to the office to get adequate answers. He does spend a lot of time with each patient, and answers all questions. Because of this, he's always behind schedule. Be prepared to wait.
