I had the balloon and a cyst removed along with Latera implants. It was done in the office in about an hour. Dr. Ellis and his team did a fantastic job and I recommend them to anyone with sinus problems!

Hands down, Dr Ellis is the best provider I've had a visit with in a long time. I work in healthcare myself and can see a vast difference in the time and care this particular doctor puts into his practice. He sat down with me, personally performed my CT scan, then explained every detail patiently. We then made a plan and I am happy to say my problem may very well be solved within a month. Very happy to have met this ENT MD. His nurse Patty is also very helpful and knowledgeable.

Dr. Ellis is by far the best. I have seen many specialists over the years with my issues even had surgery and received very little help, until I begin to see him over a year ago. He has helped me a great deal, and is so kind has wonderful bedside manners, which makes all the difference. I would very much highly recommend him to anyone having trouble. The office staff is also very good!

"I've got multiple health problems and lung and heart failure. Dr. Ellis did a tracheotomy on me and it has saved my life. Dr. Ellis has been there for me in thick and thin. He even came in to meet me in the office a few Sunday's ago from his Sunday School class to check the tube. I can HIGHLY recommend Dr. Ellis and his MAENTA team as the best anywhere. They are not only EXCELLENT in ENT care but truly super caring."

Dr. Ellis did my nasal surgery and removed my tonsils last week. I'm doing so much better than I expected. Throat is sore but that's normal. I'm breathing better through my nose. I've only taken Tylenol for pain. I'm very pleased with the care Dr. Ellis has provided to me. lv

I had nasal surgery 1 month ago with Dr. Ellis. I have not been able to breathe through my nose for years. I didn't know how good it felt to breathe through my nose until I had the nasal surgery. Thanks so much Dr. Ellis. Would highly recommend Dr. Ellis.

Never heard of having to supply your own meds for a procedure.... Then not allowed to have family members back with you.... Very odd.

Have problem breathing through nose, and told him that the Latera procedure may be beneficial to me. He agreed and scheduled the surgery. After the surgery, the procedure seems to be effective and beneficial, but will take several more months to be certain. This procedure is fairly new and the Dr. did not have much historical data to offer. Dr. was very competent and thorough Office wait time should be better
