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.
