I have lived a long life of avoiding doctors. I had a total cancerous blockage of my colon and Dr. Ellsworth did an emergency late night surgery to relieve it and then did a colon resection surgery to remove the tumor. I have been in her care for over a year. Simply put, she is the BEST. She is an empathetic, real person who just happens to be a great skilled doctor. She is young but experienced in the latest and best treatments available today. I cannot recommend her enough.

My husband and I found her to be very knowledgeable and patient in discussing treatment options for my husband. She answered all of our questions and we never felt rushed. She took her time to explain what was going on, the treatment she was going to perform and was extremely thorough. Highly recommend Dr. Ellsworth!
