This doctor was based on a referral to me for a second opinion. He declined and no reasons were given. In response to my questions, before having surgery, the nurses and schedulers stated getting a second opinion would not be a bad idea info had concerns. His team did not even contact me to give me the news. When physicians can help calm the fears of a patient, answers all questions m, and not feel the need to neglect, only then will doctors receive the proper respect and less negative feedback. Do not use this doctor! Always research and have wind and third opinionsb before surgery. I'm researching another practice. Ortho Carolina does not make me feel comfortable.

Dr. Ellington is friendly, personable, and really smart. He took over my care after a surgery out of state and I could not be happier with my experience. Although he did not perform my surgery I would not hesitate to refer him to anyone for orthopedic care of any kind.
