We just met with Dr. Ellington regarding my son's left foot. He has to have a second surgery to remove plates from a Lis Franc injury. He was very friendly and had a great bedside manner! He answered all our questions. Our surgery is planned for December 19th.

Dr Ellington has a great bedside manner. He explains things in an easily understood way and listens well. He is kind and reassuring. I had a complicated fracture and he did a great repair. His nurse Lindsay was excellent too!

As a first time patient, I didn't know what to expect. Dr. Ellington was professional and personable. He carefully explained why I was experiencing pain and what can be done as a remedy. Overall, it was a pleasant experience.
in Crouse, NC |
My feet have been bothering me for several years. Dr. Ellington explained my situation, suggested PT, and gave me shots which have helped greatly. I am so glad that I went to him. My feet are not as painful, and I can walk for longer periods of time. His manner is very professional, yet reassuring and friendly.

I was referred to Dr Ellington and thankful he took me as a new patient (having multiple issues) He has an excellent bedside manner, talked to me (not computer screen), initiated a plan of care for me before I left his office. He's very knowledgeable and knows what he is doing! Thank you Dr Ellington

I have had 2 surgeries by Dr Ellington. One of the surgeries was scheduled. I was given instructions about what kind of surgery I would have done. He was able to combine 3 surgical procedures at one time. I was given detailed instructions for my post operative care at home. I was also given an emergency phone number and one for questions I might need answers for any post op questions. The second was an emergency surgery that was taken care of the same day. I was also given post op instructions.
in Galax, VA |
Very efficient, professional and committed to taking "excellent care" of his patients. My patient experience exceeded my expectations from the initial consult, surgery ( kudos to the staff at Mallard Creek Surgery Center) and follow up appointments.
