As the former director of a hospital department in a major hospital, I know great medical care when I receive it. Dr. Ellison is superlative! He and his staff are knowledgeable, compassionate, and have a sense of urgency that is unequalled. I started with another practice in Charleston before I found out about Dr. Ellison. My diagnosis would have come 4 weeks earlier if I had come here first. He has given me a sense of hope about recovering from cancer that I didn't have before.

Dr David Ellison is an exceptional physician. In fact, he not only treats my husband, but I have referred many others to him, as well! When you are the spouse of a stage-four cancer patient, all you want is for your spouse to have the best care! Dr Ellison and his team exude calm, kindness and professionalism. If you or your loved one is facing cancer, please demand the best care!! Call Dr. Ellison!

Poor communication skills and bedside manner. Not what you'd expect with a cancer diagnosis.

Dr Ellison treats my mother and diagnosed her with multiple myeloma. Twice now he has missed clear signs and symptoms, Blood counts, full body scans, etc of lesions or 'soft spots' on her bones. Both times have resulted in major surgery and rehab, which could have been prevented if he had taken the time to treat her. Please beware of the Doctor and always get a second opinion.
