Dr. Ellman listened to my concerns and was very attentive to my needs.
Denver, CO |
I would recommend anyone to Dr Ellman that has hip problems. He answered all of my questions throughly and made me feel at ease the entire appointment.
in Golden, CO |
Felt like Dr. Ellman truly cares about my situation and is doing absolutely everything he can to relieve my pain. He looks at all Avenues and is not willing to give up. He is my relief right now until we can figure out how to take care of my pain situation.
Minneapolis, MN |
Two thumbs up!
in Castle Rock, CO |
Dr. Ellman is very personable and easy to talk to about your problem. He goes over what the options are to fix the problem. If surgery is the only option then he will explain what to expect the day of and post op. His team is friendly and they take good care of you. Highly recommend Dr. Ellman.

Dr. Ellman surpassed my expectations and made my surgery experience the best it could be. I highly recommend his work and his team.

Dr. Ellman did a bursectomy, IT band release and a tendon repair for me. So far it's been 14 weeks and I'm doing better. He has a great bedside manner, is patient, explains things and always answers questions. He's usually pretty punctual too! I would recommend him what though hesitatation and already have.

I had hip surgery performed by Dr. Ellman, and while my hip was in far worse condition than thought, Dr. Ellman did a great job with what little there was to repair. The most refreshing thing about Dr Ellman is that he is a straight forward. He never sugar coated anything. He treats me with respect, and is incredibly conscious of my desire to resume my active lifestyle. The rest of the people at Panorama have been more than helpful and accommodating. I would recommend Dr. Ellman in a heartbeat.

Very disappointing!! I had an MRI per his request because, "I'm worried you have a tear" he said. The results confirmed this and when we talked about this his response was, "I'm not worried about that because if I gave 60 people an MRI, 50 of them would have a tear." Also, my MRI results showed a glute tear. His response to that was, "That makes me mad, they put that in everybody's MRI report." Are you for real? You keep telling me that you don't know where my pain is coming from. Answer HIP

I couldn't ask for better than Dr. Ellman. Besides having an excellent reputation in his field, he is friendly and reassuring. I'm glad we tried conservative options before going ahead with surgery and having surgery with him was one of the best medical decisions I've ever made. The difference in my hip is significant and I'm only about midway through my recovery. I'm also happy to say that my entire surgical (pre and post op) experience has gone according to the expectations that he set for me.
in Littleton, CO |
Dr. Ellman is an amazing doctor! His bedside manner is excellent and he is patient and he genuinely cares about his patients. He really listens and doesn't rush you during appointments. He is very knowledgeable and he made sure I was completely informed about my surgery. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Ellman!
in Vail, CO |
Dr. Ellman is a top notch doctor and surgeon. I came in with a labral tear mixed FAI and he did my initial surgery last year. He did a great job and I recovered very well. His bedside manner is perfect and he personally came to each of my appointments to talk and make sure I was doing okay physically and mentally after surgery. I'm headed back into surgery with him this month and would recommend him to anyone with hip problems. Thanks Dr. Ellman!
He was great. Explained everything very clearly, was fully engaged-not rushed. Excellent.
