I love doc Ellowitz. I had just did acl reconstruction surgery and I had s great experience and no complications. He has great bed side manners and he checks up on his patients to make sure that their okay and feeling good.

My name is Gerard Kamperveen and I felt compelled to write this review. It is seldom that I would take time and write about the job performance of a professional but the compassion ,knowledge and attention that I received from dr Ellowitz is NOTHING I had ever experienced before. Not only did he do a tremendous job,but he walked me through every facet of expectation of the procedure and aftermath. I would recommend this doctor to anyone who needs a hip replacement very highly. Thank you.

Dr. Ellowitz is the best not only is her surgery top notch but he has great bedside manner, which is hard to find nowadays. He did a knee replacement surgery on my right knee September of 2015 and at Broward Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale. His staff made all of the arrangements and everything went over A+. His amazing staff does great follow-up especially his surgery coordinatir, Jennifer. All in all it was a great experience and I would do it again without hesitation.

I am very grateful to have found Dr.Ellowitz. With many problems and having seen many Dr's in 2 years and gotten nowhere. Within one week of my initial visit Dr Ellowitz wrote 2 referrals 4 x-rays and nerve conduction studies. it's one week since my initial visit and the extra x-rays have already been taken. I have faith again that something might get done. I am very excited about the future

His office is a disaster! Went to see him two times and never actually got past the front desk! I wasted 3 hours of my life traveling to this office and never saw the doctor. They had an incorrect phone number for me and said I missed my first appt then when I rescheduled, I waited in the waiting room for an hour and wasn't any closer to getting on the door than the lady sitting next to me who had been there 45 mins before me!!!!! I took my records and will see a dr who respects my time!
