Dr. S. Ellis

Dr. S. Ellis was the doctor for my daughter who was 5 at the time with a broken arm. She loved him and he even made her cast in her favorite color. I now have a very severe knee injury and not only respect his experience and knowledge but admire his patience and flexibility.. he is by far one of thee best Dr's I've ver met and had the chance to deal with. I would recommend him to any orthopedic patient Big or Small.... I trust his judgement, enough to allow him to perform my knee surgery this week. His front staffgirl is amazing and patient enough to deal with my OCD husband. I could talk for hours about how great he is and don't agree with any bad review on here at all. He is so knowledgeable he doesn't need to do a painful knee exam each time you see him pre-op if he has seen your MRI. He is diligent, empathetic and very down to earth. Wonderful man, and I've even seen him with his kids at the office - I not only think that is commendable but shows how caring he is inside his practice as well as outside. I love his staff and him, and thank goodness fate sent me to him . I am also in the medical profession and will always give him rave reviews & send patients his way. Outstanding Orthopedic. One of thee best in AZ. See the amount of good reviews 'vs' bad - it's commendable.

Terrible Experience

Made an appointment with terrible pain in left knee. 1st appointment was cancelled and rescheduled for 2 days later. Then I waited over in a hour in the exam room and finally when he did see me, didnt even exam my knee, just sent me to get an mri. I took my MRI in the same day and had to set an appoint for 2 days later. All this time in lots of pain. finally 2 hours before my appoint to go over my mri, I get another cancellation call needing to reschedule for 5 days later. Enough was enough and was able to pick up my mri and be seen by another specialist the same day.
