Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Worst doctor I’ve ever experienced!
This man is angry, hostile and nasty. I am honestly shocked that he is still in practice after my experience with him years ago. My daughter’s pediatrician wanted a second opinion of which this so-called doctor didn’t like . He literally called me on my personal phone and reemed me a new one. He was so offended that I would do what was suggested by my pediatrician. This man should NEVER be practicing anything. He is CRAZY!

Dr Ellenburg is rude and nasty, changes medications because he and his staff are too lazy to fill out prior authorization forms and makes negative comments about dealing with TNCare. He also tells people how “old school” he is...then rants about dealing with insurance companies instead of focusing on patient care. Horrible experience.

He is my second choice when consulting regarding my Asthma allergy. He has been treating me since past few years, and all his prescribed medicine works for me. Although, I had switched my doctor for a change to see if I can get better results from a different doctor.
