Dr. Leighton E Ellis has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

I highly recommend Dr. Ellis and the nurse practioner in her office (Erin) They are thorough, caring, and very good with children. Dr. Sharp in the same office is less impressive and the cedar park location is not as good as the main location on Renfert. Sometimes, the wait times for Dr. Ellis herself are terrible because she is one of the doctors that checks on all of the babies at North Austin Medical Center (your own pediatrician can't go there)Well checks with her have to be scheduled two or more months in advance. The front office is a little less than friendly but the back office and nurses are great.
