Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

When Dr. Ellison entered the room I instantly felt comfortable upon seeing her “smile” that reached her caring, friendly eyes. (We both were wearing masks.) She listened with patience and respect to my questions, and gave knowledgeable, clear answers, and suggestions to improve my health. I am so relieved to meet her as my new doctor. She was very thorough with the exam. I never felt rushed at any time. I would highly recommend Dr. Ellison to my family, friends, and readers.

Have been seeing DR Ellison for 5 years. Highly recommend her. She takes time, listens and orders test when appropriate. As an 80 year old with a history of diabetes, arthritis, and past breast cancer I feel comfortable and in good hands.

I like Dr.Ellison. She listens and she’s through she is also very good at getting you to get tests that you may be reluctant to get! I have looked for a doctor for a long time Dr Ellison was recommended by a coworker I’m very pleased I took the recommendation. ( and she wears great shoes)

Dr Ellison is a knowledgeable, warm and welcoming doctor. She always greets with a smile and makes you feel comfortable. I hope I never have to change my PCP, because I doubt I would find another one as good as her.

I Love Dr. Ellison! I used to cringe thinking about going to the doctor & would only go if "I'm dying." She always listens to every question & concern I have. Very friendly & kind even if I say I'm not exercising or eating exactly how she recommended. She & her staff (Amanda & Amir) always make me feel at ease.

Dr. Ellison has always focused on my healthcare needs. She does not rush the appointment and patiently discusses all my concerns no matter how minute they may be. At my first appointment, we had a very long conversation about my health history, how I felt mentally and physically, and what I do for a living. She made me feel very comfortable and important. She is personable, thorough and knowledgeable; explaining things in layman's terms when necessary.
