An absolute waste of time to go to him.

Very poor listener, arrogant and opinionated, his comments were insensitive and insulting. He can't put himself in your shoes. He was very unprofessional. All he does is to try to promote his absurd pet peeves (weight, diet, diabetes and exercise}. He was clueless to my physical limitations.

Great guy

Dr. Ellis is excellent. I had an EMG/NCV and as unpleasant as these can be he was very good at making me comfortable during the procedure. He is very good at explaining the results to you. I would recommend him to anyone.
