What People Say About Dr. Rodney Ellis, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
I recommend him all the time! I've honestly never had a doctor with a cohesive, efficient front office staff. I wouldn't let the issues there keep you from good health care. He doesn't forget and still surprises me when asking about my past health concerns. He gives me honest assessments on my state of being and stern medical advice that feels like it's coming from my dad! Being able to do that shows that he cares.

Dr. Ellis has always treated me with care and compassion. He makes you feel like family. The entire staff is awesome. I am a 3 yrs. cancer survivor and Dr. Ellis was there every step of the way and because of him and his weight loss program, I have lost 40lbs total; 28 lb. loss in 3 month. Obeying his advise has benefited me with proof to be an encouragement to others.

Doctor is arrogant and gets insulted when asking questions about your care. On several occasions I asked should I see a specialist for a health condition and he visibly became annoyed with me. He prescribes medicine but does not explain things to you and does not like when you ask questions. Test results are always delayed due to administrative issues. I read up on my health concerns and had questions - last appointment, he walked out, slammed the door, and called me a complex lady.

Physician is arrogant and gets offended when you question him about your care. Missed several diagnosis, he did not review labs. With him you have to manage your own healthcare. His excuse is forgive me I see xxx amount of patients per day. Went to this doctor for a year after experiencing rapid weight loss. Saw him on an emergency visit and he stated that I had a urinary tract infection which turned out to be a condition that could have caused me to lose kidneys. Would not recommend.
