    Dr Ellis did my knee replacement about 9 years ago. I bought a recumbent bike and used it every day as he recommended. I have not had any further problems. I found him very professional and would recommend him to anyone. Beverly - Temecula

    Dr Ellis was very rude and impatient with me. I came in with a 2 month old MRI of my lumbar spine ordered by a pain specialist and previously a radiologist read it as mild arthritis in my back. Dr Ellis looked at the MRI and told me I had severe spinal stenosis. I was genuinely surprised and said so. At that point he glared at me, told me not to speak while he was talking or I wouldn't hear what he was saying. I was so startled that I shut up and I do not remember what he said. Bad doctor.

    This Dr. was nasty and unkind to me. He told me my bursitis was all in my head. Perhaps because I am a woman. I was a nurse so I know a good doctor from a bad one, and in my opinion, he is bad. I had to ask for physical therapy orders. He took no x-rays even though I had fallen the week before and he complained about the quality of the x-rays I had brought from urgent care that were taken a month prior. I have heard of other complaints about him. This man should not be in practice.
