Dr. Ellis is a fantastic doctor. He operated on both knees and my shoulder (not at the same time) and the follow up, staff and rehab staff are superb! I would highly recommend Dr. Ellis for future surgeries. THANK YOU GUYS!

Dr. Ellis is a really good dr. He is compassionate and spends the time needed to hear you out and give you his best opinion on what he believes are your best options. However, his staff is very unprofessional and have a hard time returning phone calls. I had called them 5 times in 3 days trying to get some info from Dr. Ellis and could not get a call back.

Dr Ellis is awesome. He accepts a lot of insurance that other specialists won't and has a lot of resources available to his patients that can't pay. Because of this, yes, the waits at his office are on the long side, but he doesn't make you feel rushed when he's talking to you, and he's one of the few doctors I've come across that seems like he actually cares about what he does. I would recommend this doctor to anyone and I hope he keeps up the good work.
