I highly recommend Dr. Marco F. Ellis to anyone who needs his services. His staff warmly welcomed me into the office, making me feel at ease. I was then escorted to a comfortable room where I met with Dr. Ellis. Upon meeting him, I immediately knew I was in great hands. With Dr. Ellis, I discovered a skillful, competent physician who took the time to explain all facets of my procedure. By the time I left his office, I knew exactly what to expect regarding my surgery. I am so happy with the results of Dr. Ellis's surgical expertise, and I thank him, Karin, Erin and the rest of his staff for checking on me even during my recovery at home. I would give him 10 stars if I could.
Both my self and a friend had chin augmentations with Dr. Ellis. Mine was to correct a former procedure as the chin had shifted. Dr. Ellis's first surgery concluded with the chin being more off center than before the surgery. The second surgery had the same result. I was in seriously bad shape after the second surgery. My friend had his and weeks later had a serious infection that Dr. Ellis ignored for weeks and ultimately he had a hole cut in his neck to drain the infection and had the chin removed. Mine is six months post op and is infected. He misrepresented his experience with this procedure and had very poor follow up. Would not see him if surgery was free.
I am very glad I chose Dr Ellis as my plastic surgeon. I had breathing problems due to my deviated septum. The entire experience was very pleasant starting with friendly clinic staff and finishing with the surgery itself. Dr Ellis is very professional, knowledgeable, caring and honest. He really takes his time to explain in detail everything in regards to your particular condition. I felt very well taken care off and at ease when going into surgery. My breathing improved tremendously and the cosmetic part of the surgery exceeded my expectations. I am so happy I had Northwestern hospital and Dr Ellis take care of my condition. Thank you!:)
I wish I could give Dr. Ellis and his office a million stars and hugs for helping me with my condition. I have Neurofibromatosis. Not a lot of people know about this condition - including doctors. I started seeing Dr. Ellis about 3 years ago for my NF. He has helped me immensely. This condition causes skin growths and can be very painful. Not only that, because the growths are on the skin, it is psychologically difficult to deal with. Dr. Ellis has been able to remove my growths with no down time and with almost no scarring. In fact, the scars that I do have, I really have to point them out because the are almost invisible. Dr. Ellis and his office has helped me out so much. I am so glad that I found someone to remove these growths but also be so compassionate about my condition. He is honest about what he can and cannot do. And he has helped me immensely. On top of that - his office staff is unbelievably awesome! His Physician's Assistant Alex (I think that's his title) is a wiz with needle and thread. He makes sure I'm healing ok and he seems to really care about how I'm feeling afterwards. The women that run the front desk are so kind and friendly. They too seem to REALLY care if I'm ok and how I'm healing. Due to the fact that they have taken such good care of me, I probably won't be going back much more. They have done such a great job at getting me where I want to be with this condition. There is no cure but It almost looks like I don't even have it. I have spent years crying over having NF. Now I cry because I've been taken care of so well. Thank you so much to Dr. Ellis and his staff for taking care of me. There is no words that can adequately express how much thanks I have in my heart for what you have done for me.
