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.
