a surgeon you can trust

Dr. Ellis is a straight shooter. He does not sugar coat the truth, but he is kind and trustworthy. He did a fantastic job with my husband's brain cancer surgery and I am grateful to him.

CONFUSING

Very hard to get an appointment or to get anyone to answer the phone or return phone calls within a decent amount of time (24-48 hours). Conflicting information received, especially between the surgery scheduler and the hospital itself. Cattle call type situation on day of surgery- everyone is "herded" into the hospital at the same time whether you are scheduled for 6 AM or 3PM. There is no cohesiveness between the office staff, the hospital and Dr. Ellis. There are no clear cut instructions that weren't contradicted at some point during the process, which could lead you to believe you are senile (had I not had my better half with me I might have thought I was having a senior moment or in the twilight zone). DR Ellis is great but the office is one big confused mess, which made me feel very uneasy about having the surgery, regardless of Dr. Ellis credentials.
