Dr. Ellis , is very straightforward with his diagnosis which i like , and after He found I had a Tumor on my right vocal cord . He suggested I talk to a Oncologists for a Radiation treatment first before the second choice to have it removed with laser Surgery . After hearing both ways I went with Laser to remove it . Dr. Ellis performed it for me and it went Great , I can still talk well and His follow up procedures have been good news for me the since my operation a year ago .

I like dr. Ellis's easy going manner. Appt. did not seem rushed. The proof is in the pudding and will not have that after a few days of post op recovery. Good experience otherwise.

He was rude and didn't spend much time with me. He didn't try to figure out what was wrong. He made assumptions about me that were incorrect.

We visited Dr. Ellis' office today, March 30, 2016. Both my husband and I had appointments. We were into our appointment before appointment times and little time between the nurse and doctor. . One could not have asked for better treatment and attitude from both the staff and the doctor. My husband is not a good patient because he is hard to satisfy He even commented on the way home ...he thought the doctor and staff was very NICE! This was very unusual for him.

AWFUL experience! My 3 year old was referred to Dr. Ellis because of chronic ear infections. Every appointment (surgery included) had about an hour wait time. I was told that's because he takes his time with his patients. Yet, I've never seen him longer than 5 minutes. He was over an hour late to my son's surgery. He never acknowledged the fact that we had waited for him each time. His bedside manner was arrogant and rude. We will never visit this office again.
