Dr. Ellis worked on my husband's big toe which was really in bad shape. My husband was so satisfied with dictor Ellis's work he would recommend him to friends and family. We moved away from New York to Florida so he's not able to see doctor Ellis. Wish we could have taken him to Florida he's that good.

There’s something about Dr Ellis that makes a patient comfortable and in good hands. He is not only one of the kindest men around, but also informative and knowledgeable. Went there several times but most recently during Covid restrictions. The office is run properly and staff is pleasant. Don’t hesitate at all to visit Dr Ellis....you won’t be disappointed

This visit: short wait time, went for treatment of ingrown toenail. Excellent doctor--whether it's bunion surgery X2, foreign body, hammer toes, ingrown toes...no problem. Steps right in and resolves. And wait: Dr. Ellis actually listens to the patient and isn't that unique these days.

Outstanding customer service from Dr. Ellis. He is very professional. I hesitated for so long to address my issue because I thought there would be a lot of red tape with insurance issues and long recovery time. I had my surgical procedure on Friday June 21st and I am up and about, pain free already on June 28th. Did not need any narcotics. I highly recommend Dr. Ellis. Great Doctor!!!
