I trust Dr. Ellis completely. I have been going to him for a few years now. He is always thorough and takes his time. He always explains exactly what is going on and needed. I definitely would refer him to friends and family.

The only complaint I have is the length of time waiting. My last visit was 2 hour wait. No explanation either. I think he is an excellent doctor but wait time is excessive. Will see after my next visit.

Dr. Ellis is a great doctor. He can and will work until he has a satisfactory outcome, including treatment, working with insurance companies and other physicians. He is on the cutting edge of treatment options. Cares about his patients. Only problem is that he is a BUSY man. Sometimes hard to schedule appointments, but his office and staff makes sure he gets messages and he or his nurse returns calls promptly.

debbyg in Portland, TN – May 04, 2016
Have never felt that I was in such extremely competent and caring hands. Dr. Ellis is not your general stuffed shirt, arrogant physcian. His office and beside manners are real, relaxed and focused on the patient. He listened to all of my many questions and concerns ... and addressed them all without any hint of impatience or sense of urgency to move on. His grasp of his field of expertise in ablation and Watchman procedures is both recognized by his peers and obvious by his results.
