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
