Saw this doctor because my iron levels were high and I have hemochromatosis so I wanted to get a therapeutic phlebotomy before my Ferritin levels were also high (meaning iron is stored in the organs- very bad). He rolled his eyes at me and argued with me the entire appointment saying it wasn't necessary. I explained that I am looking for a doctor who tries to help me PREVENT issues before the become medical PROBLEMS but he didn't really seem to care. Very rude- no empathy and the personification with what is wrong with the healthcare system. His nurse (Kira I think) was super sweet and understood what I was trying to accomplish and, more importantly, why. I do not recommend this doctor if you're looking for a true partner in the care of your well being.

Dr. Ellerton made silly jokes... He's really old and was shaky... I was afraid for myself to have him treat me... I won't be coming back... Luckily someone else took blood work and not the shaky weird doctor .

This doctor was okay while I was getting treatment with chemo. As soon as that was over his followup office visits were a waste of my time. He never examined me or took blood work. He would just sit there and talk silly and he even put his head on the wall and almost dozed off once. He moved his office 4 times while I went to him. I decided to get a new oncology doctor and the one I have now is very professional and answers all my questions. I get blood work done and an examination every appt.

Dr Ellerton was assigned to us by UMC Oncology department. He refused to come see us in the hospital. When we finally met with him he told us the chemo that he was starting my husband on was RCHOP. No options or major side effects were given. we went for 6 month check up after chemo he told us we did not need blood work done because my husband "looked" healthy. I was mad took him for second optinion and he was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia, a side effect from the chemo.

I was surprised to see some low grades but no remarks, (maybe it was the office staff? I've always found them nice). In Ref to Dr. Ellerton, I have always found him to be funny and compassionate, but also explains in detail why he is making certain recommendations, always leaving the choice to me. Whenever I ask, he readily tells and shows me what trends he is seeing in research and treatment, what has been found in the past. He didn't just point to one study, but many in a wide spectrum.

I was referred to Dr. Ellerton because I was extremely sick. His nurse Pat was great, he is very funny and due to my condition was very concerned and even spoke to other specialist about my illness. Front desk person not very friendly and I spoke to Dr. Ellerton about it and she was much nicer after that.
