Dr Ellis has been my doc through 4 pregnancies and I have had a great experience under her care each time. She has always tried to make me as comfortable as possible, never rushes through an appointment, and thourghly answers my questions. She has excellent bedside manner and is very kind. I am so thankful she was my doc through my pregnancies.

I love this practice. I switched to them while pregnant b/c I wanted an in-network midwife. I met Dr. Ellis during one of my prenatal appts while my midwife was out, and she was very warm and I felt really comfortable in her care. I ended up having to be induced and ultimately had to get an emergency C-section, which devastated me b/c this was not at all what I wanted for my first birth experience, but Dr. Ellis was the performing physician and did great. I knew that I was I great hands.

VERY RUDE STAFF! I am no longer a patient as my husband and I have moved but I called to talk about my bill and left several messages in the last two weeks in May 18. NO CALLBACK YET. I spoke with Tonya Z once and she was rude and studdered i could not understand her. She didnt help me at all as i paid my bill and have a credit and have not been refunded. DONT LET THEM KEEP YOUR MONEY!!!! If i were in Texas i would go up there. THIS IS VERY UNORGANIZED PRACTICE WITH RUDE DOCTORS AND STA

Dr.Ellis is amazing! Her bedside manners are everything I look for in a gynecologist. She doesn’t treat her patients like they are beneath her. She’s very knowledgeable and passionate. Especially when it comes to PCOS. Instead of her giving ,e what I thought I needed she told me the risks of why she wouldn’t and I love and respect her for that. The day I’m able to carry a child full term it would be an honor for her presence in the room.

I've been a patient of Dr Ellis for 2 yrs. I carried a baby to term which was delivered @ Las Colinas. Dr Ellis was personable, spent time answering questions, & gave practical advice about L&D. Baby was born on a Friday, 2 days prior to a holiday, so the Dr on-call attended, but L&D team was still great. But, I had a very bad experience after delivery @ Las Colinas w/ NICU & lactation. Also, Dr Ellis canceled my last two appts as I arrived at her office, so I'm switching to a Dr @ another hosp

While the doctor is excellent, a couple of her staff members , notably the nurse practitioners are quite rude at times. The older nurse practitioner was really good but doesn't handle day to day anymore and I have found the younger ones not responding back to queries or sending prescriptions on time . The doctor herself is excellent diagnostician with good bedtime manners and spends ample time with her patients. So no issues there but would be good if her staff picks up their pace !
