Dr. Ellison really cares about her patients. She spends time talking with them instead of checking her clock or watch. She asks questions, etc. I think in all honesty that she is the best doctor I have ever seen.

I love Dr. Ellison, she is there for her patients and if I was in pain or had something going she was worried and tried to figure out if I was ok! I wouldn’t change any doctor if I had to. She always enters the room with her friendliest smile and asks, how my family is doing? and about my job! She is an excellent doctor and I’m so happy I chose her to be my doctor!

If I could leave zero stars I would. This Dr. Ellison should not be a dr. She is driven by the system rather than by a will to try to help a patient in pain and infection. If you are a patient of hers switch or if you are thinking of becoming her pt don’t. She will not help you in an emergency if it’s after hours. She was covering emergencies for my dr and left me in pain with an infection and told me to call the offfice in the morning. Didn’t she swear an oath to help people and do no harm???

She helped me with a bad case of pneumonia that was misdiagnosed by another doctor. She has since become my primary doctor and also treats my husband, brother and took care of my mother for years.

Dr. Ellison is extremely compassionate and caring. She excels in personal attention and takes the time to completely explain her procedures. She asks questions and carefully listens to the patient. My entire family has had her as our Primary Care Physician for many years.

Very caring & compassionate. Takes the time to listen. The only issue I've come across is actually getting a timely appointment. This one is booked solid, for good reason.
