Very good doctor he did my surgery twice did the outcome was very good
I had a 1pm appointment. After waiting 30 minutes, I checked with the receptionist. She eventually told me Ellis was 1 hour and 45 minutes behind schedule. I had other obligations and could not wait. They could have called or informed me when I checked in. I found another orthopedic specialist due to his lack of respect for patients.
having had 10 previous orthopedic surgery's from S.C.O.I., ( the premeir doctors), I have to give dr. Ellis a 10 of 10 rating. My previous experiences give me much insight into the ability of a skilled surgeon. Dr. Ellis is among the best of the best. he saved my shoulder twice. Thank You dr. Ellis for your dedication to see people get back to 100% using your skills.
Dr. Ellis replaced both of my knees and I couldn't be happier. My surgeries went extremely well and the pain management following surgery was great - I didn't have any! I have my quality of life back...taking walks, shopping, etc, things I hadn't been able to do for years! No regrets from this patient...I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Ellis for your total knee replacement surgery.
