Dr. Ellis did a hip replacement for me. He is very competent and is one of the best surgeons. However his bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired. Once I got used to him it was OK.

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
