Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Please go to another doctor! It was a joke of a visit and an easy $85 co pay visit for them! She was very dismissive and didn’t even listen to me. I cannot strive enough to please see another doctor! Worst doctor I have ever been to in my life!

If she is not your regular doctor, don't make the appointment. It will be a waste of time she will only recommend you see your assigned doctor and that is it.

I have been her patient for over 1 year. Dr Ellis is courteous, attentive, caring, thorough, asks questions and listens to my concerns. One is never rushed through an appointment. She makes certains that all areas of care are covered, even the ones I do not mention. She ensures that all lab work and tests are up to date. Her staff is also great, very caring, very personable. I trust Dr Ellis implicitly. The nurse always reminds me -- very courteously, of course -- that if I have a question out of office, I can use the online patient portal to relay questions to the office. Sometimes there is a bit of a wait to see Dr Ellis, but I don't mind because I know she is giving a patient the time, effort, and consideration that she gives me, as well.

Terrible experience, very unprofessional. I came in, after not having had a primary care provider in Tampa. I waited in the patient room, and after waiting received a phone call from the doctor. She asked of my symptoms and I listed one, to which she said she’d refer me to someone else. She postponed my bloodwork that I’d previously been told would be done that day, and told me “if I could wait three years, I could wait three more weeks.” She gave me a list of bloodwork tests, without explaining anything. She continued to speak to me rather rudely, and I was not able to even tell her what else was going on. I genuinely thought after a few years of not having a caring provider, she would be the one. She rushes you, and will speak in the most condescending way. I do not recommend whatsoever, time to find a new provider.
