Dr Ellis did my knee replacement about 9 years ago. I bought a recumbent bike and used it every day as he recommended. I have not had any further problems. I found him very professional and would recommend him to anyone. Beverly - Temecula
in Lake Elsinore, CA |
Dr Ellis was very rude and impatient with me. I came in with a 2 month old MRI of my lumbar spine ordered by a pain specialist and previously a radiologist read it as mild arthritis in my back. Dr Ellis looked at the MRI and told me I had severe spinal stenosis. I was genuinely surprised and said so. At that point he glared at me, told me not to speak while he was talking or I wouldn't hear what he was saying. I was so startled that I shut up and I do not remember what he said. Bad doctor.

Dr. Ellis performed a full hip replacement in January 2016 on my left hip and I am doing great. No pain and healing very fast.

Nothing bad to say on December 7/2015 I got total hip replacement in the Riverside, medical, center, moreno valley Dr ellis do exelente work, today am pain free and going with excellent recovery, thanks Dr ellis
in Hemet, CA |
This Dr. was nasty and unkind to me. He told me my bursitis was all in my head. Perhaps because I am a woman. I was a nurse so I know a good doctor from a bad one, and in my opinion, he is bad. I had to ask for physical therapy orders. He took no x-rays even though I had fallen the week before and he complained about the quality of the x-rays I had brought from urgent care that were taken a month prior. I have heard of other complaints about him. This man should not be in practice.
