I would not recommend my worst enemy to this doctor. Leanne was the best thing that ever happened to his practice and when she left everything fell apart. I'm a firm believer in karma and what you do will come back on you. I don't care how many people you pay to write bad reviews about her she is the best! And there is nothing that you can do that will ever change who she is she's the best! you know who you are dr. Ellison and you know the things that you've done they're no longer a secret.

He in no way should be treating people with addiction issues considering the fact that he is an active addict and writes prescriptions to his friends so they can go fill them and turn them over to him

I have been a patient for about 28 years as was both my parents. Responsiveness & customer service have gone down hill a lot. Current insurance is not accepted by this Dr. but even so, I continued there. About a month ago had blood work. Got call week after to come in to see dr. I explained it was $130 for visit and if nothing serious I could not afford it. was promised call back-two days later I called & was promised a call again. I certainly hope its nothing serious since never got call back.

I Have seen Dr Ellison the last few times couple of and i've been in to the office Since Leanne almost got me fired from my job!! TG i didnt. The staff is all friendly and courteous there. I'm being treated for multiple issues and once again Doctor Ellison listened we talked about things , how there working how i'm feeling and how i'm doing overall. Ive been achieving bigger goals while maintaining balance from work and home life with my wife and son . Thanks Dr E

Dr Ellison actually took the time to listen to my situation after Leanne just went completely off too right field with my situation. He listened to all my concerns and addressed my situation the way it really needed to be, He is trustworthy caring and very smart. Its the doctors that take the time to listen to your actual situation and what your specific needs are. Everyone is diff and Dr Ellison recognizes that. Thank you Doc

Wonderful staff and vet caring. Competent and no long waits. I have been going here since 2009 and wouldn't go anywhere else!

very concerned always asks questions to find out what is happening
Dr. is knowledgeable but treats you like you are wasting his time. Dr's medical assistant is rude, condescending and she does not complete prior auth's and referrals. I have had many experiences with physicians offices and this was the worst experience I have ever had. I don't recommend this office even in desperation. Dying would be less painful.

I was at the worst end of the spectum with fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome, almost completely bedridden. I had been on opioid pain killers over a decade for pain, but the results were lackluster, and they did nothing for the overwhelming fatigue. Not only did Dr. Ellison get me off those drugs, in a painless way without suffering the effects of withdrawal, he started me on a new type of treatment that not only got rid of my pain, but returned my energy! I am 98% back to normal!!
