My partner was a patient of dr Ellis. He was rude, demeaning and demonstrated unprofessional conduct throughout the appt. said that he had “actual patients” that needed to be seen. His level of negligence and substandard care became more evident in follow up conversations. He eventually abandoned my partner as his patient and refused to respond to the very primary care doctors that sought his opinion in a diagnosis. This doctor is not a expert- he is a hack with a formal CA board complaint.

Was under his care for 8 years for Idiopathic progressive polyneuropathy, Radicular syndrome/lower limbs & Epilepsy/Seizures. He was OK at first, only spent 5-6 min on EVERY appointment. After years of mediocre appointments, I had issues I needed his help with. One medical & another was for help with a program that HE needed to fill paperwork out for. First time I reached out to him in years. He never once responded & refused to see me. Would not recommend to my enemies!!
