Every time I got to see Dr. Ellis. Everyone is so sweet. Plus they know who I am. I was in a domestic violence relationship for 10 years. Dr. Ellis noticed as soon as he looked at that my nose was crushed. First he rebuilt my nose. Then worked on my vocal cords. I had a mass. He removed it and sent it off to be analyzed. To make sure I was ok. Then I had a procedure done to my nose again for a tube reduction apparently my nose was producing to my mucas. He fixed that. Now that is been a year since my first surgery. He noticed that 1 of my twins tried to give me a kiss and bumped my nose while it was healing. He also found out I have sinusitis. Where my sinuses are full of infection. So now hopefully I'm going to have 1 more surgery to straighten up my nose and get the infection took care of. I am so pleased with the care they have been giving me. Plus they actually listen to you. If you have a problem. Dr. Ellis. Will fix it. He is an earth angel. Thank you so much.

Dr. Ellis checked me for things other doctors didn’t care to check for. He was very encouraging and didn’t shrug me to the side like other doctors I have seen. He is very observant and cares for his people

I was experiencing difficulty swallowing which is very disturbing and uncomfortable. New to Mt. Airy I asked a neighbor for a referral and she suggested Dr. Ellis. The staff was professional, compassionate and accommodating when I called to schedule an appointment. When Dr. Ellis examined my throat he gave me a diagnosis and corse of treatment. Now I am nearly symptom free. With a bit more time I should be 100% better. My experience with Dr. Ellis and his staff has been healing and comforting. I will certainly recommend Dr. Ellis and continue to trust his practice with my health concerns.
