We had a great experience with Dr. Ellis and his staff. Everyone was friendly from scheduling an appointment to our visit. I was impressed that our two year old cooperated through the full exam. They are very experienced with children and put them at ease.

Dr. Ellis is very kind and puts my daughter at ease. He is very thorough. I would recommend him without hesitation. The office staff is friendly and the Falls Church office has a separate waiting area for kids that is very comfortable.

My daughter had a surgery with him. He left a horrible scar on her.
