I have had two experiences with Dr. Ellner (biopsy and surgery), which were both excellent. He has a transparent, straightforward approach and is open to hearing from patients. His extensive experience is certainly a welcome asset.

She called later and said that she felt rushed (due to her schedule, not me) and we offered to reexamine her at no charge in the future. Her next visit was at 8:40 in the morning. She made a scene in the waiting room at 8:43 that she hadn't been taken back yet. My receptionist explained that there was an urgent over book and she was seen 10 minutes later. She was rude at both visits.

I just met Dr. Ellner today and was extremely impressed. He had a jovial, disarming demeanor allowing for relaxed conversation. He readily shared information, offered to "zap" a few spots at no extra cost, and enthusiastically answered all my questions. I appreciated that he spent quite a bit of...more
