Hello my name is Mrs. Escovedo. My experience with Dr Ellis was wonderful. He's a very caring and understanding doctor. Staff is very nice and welcoming. They make you feel comfortable from the time you go in and when you leave their office. I would highly recommend Dr Ellis to anyone who is in pain or even chronic pain. Thank you Dr Ellis and wonderful staff.
We appreciate the kind words and work to earn them each and every day

Dr. Ellis is straight forward with information while being caring and compassionate. I feel he explores all options and is extremely knowledgeable in his expertise. I would strongly recommend him for any one who is having pain.

My first and only experience with Dr. Ellis was less than pleasant. Working in the specialty of pain management, I would expect more compassion and understanding than what I received. He was terse, impatient and just shy of rude. I would not recomment this doctor to anyone I care about as his bedside manner leaves much to be desired.
We are always disappointed when someone is unhappy with our care. It strengthens our resolve to do better

After having gone to two other doctors for severe pain in my back, I went to Dr. Ellis who suspected my pain was something else and order a scan. He discovered that I had stage IV pancreatic cancer and that this was the source of my pain. After taking oral pain medication and suffering all the unpleasant side effects Dr. Ellis suggested that he install a pain pump in my abdomen. It took away almost all of my pain and side effects and immensely improved my quality of life. I am very grateful.

Pain is the most difficult chronic health issue that Human beings face each day as we age. Many of us start giving up on being able to live normally and enjoy life and I was there when I first found Dr Ellis. If you have pain you need a doctor that truly knows what they are doing in this complex area, is compassionate for those with pain and believes in the power of medicine to help. Dr Ellis is the best doctor I have ever had but my best description is to share that I thank God for him.

Dr Ellis went out of his way to work me into his busy schedule when the nerve block procedure scheduled with another doctor couldn't be performed.He was contacted Wed afternoon & saw me at 9 the next day.He very thoroughly explained the procedure & scheduled it for 3:30 the next day! Dr Ellis had to work late on a Friday evening but knowing we were from out of town, he made sure it was done that day so additional travel wasn't needed.He was patient & answered all questions.I highly recommend him

I am writing this review at my son Andrew's request. We have been very, very pleased with the care Dr. Ellis has provided. He suggested a pain pump for Andrew in 2014. This has been a huge help in controlling his cancer pain. Dr. Ellis listens, is compassionate and understanding. He gives excellent medical care. He even visited Andrew in the hospital on a Sunday recently.
