Golden office appointment 3/22/22
Dr. Ellman was great! He listened and explained my problem very well. It was a little difficult to schedule an appointment, but he does go between 3 other locations. I would highly recommend him.

Had a great visit with Dr. Ellman. He was seeing my daughter Chloe for a torn labrum. His bedside manner is amazing. Her Explained my daughters orthopedic problem in great detail, reviewed her imaging in detail and answered all our questions. Discussed several different ways to manage her problem including but not limited to Surgery. We felt very comfortable with his assessment and plan moving forward. Would recommend him highly. If and when my daughter needs surgery he is definitely our guy.

My mother snapped her Femur in 2 due to a cancer weakened area while visiting Colorado. Dr. Ellman performed the emergency surgical repair. This repair will make her leg stronger than before but it is the way he treats his patients and families that is truly exceptional. In a world of distance and digital interaction, Dr. Ellman is personal, throrough, present, and above all kind. He listens to hear the concerns of his patients and answers their questions. He makes himself available to their concerns. He is very talented surgically but his professionalism and interaction sets him apart.

The consult with Dr Ellman was exactly what I was looking for. His staff were efficient and after an on-site X-ray he gave me a clear diagnosis and prognosis. He didn’t pressure me to take the treatment options if I didn’t want to, and instead gave me helpful suggestions on what I can do to slow the progression of my issue. I can highly recommend Dr Ellman.

He’s personable, thorough, and takes pride in seeing his patience succeed or recover as quickly and effectively as possible (while being safe and cautious). 5/5 would recommend. I had hip surgery with Dr Ellman in November 2020 - he and his team gave me, and continue to give me, first rate treatment.

Dr Ellman has a wonderful bedside manner. He spends time with you and I never felt rushed. He makes sure you get all your questions answered and explains everything well. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends and family. As a nurse myself, I decided to go to Panorama because of my rehab patients excellent outcomes over the years. My hip surgery was successful and I’m so glad I had Dr Ellman’s expertise. I’m getting back to being my old self after years of pain!

I was referred to Dr. Ellman from a friend regarding a shoulder issue, turned out to be a torn bicep. The consultations, procedure and post op was very smooth. He was present from the initial visit through surgery and my injury has since been corrected. I would recommend Dr. Ellman in the future.
