    I ruptured my Achilles tendon playing basketball. After seeing Dr. Ellis shortly after calling for an appointment I knew I was in great hands and had selected the right doctor. Dr. Ellis is extremely knowledgeable but is also easy to talk with and listens to your questions and concerns. His staff is also very competent and cares about you. I had surgery five weeks ago and I have been very happy with my recovery. I would highly recommend Dr. Ellis if you experience an Achilles rupture

    Can't sing enough praises for Dr. Ellis. 4 short weeks ago, Dr. Ellis performed a total replacement of my right ankle. I'm already weight-bearing and walking with the assistance of a walker. Dr. Ellis was spot-on when he told me what to expect. My experience with him has been fantastic. I would recommend Dr Ellis to anyone having ankle issues.

    Dr. Ellis is the best. He just performed ankle surgery on me in November 2015. 6 months later I am back in the game! I highly recommend Dr. Ellis to anyone who wants to stay mobile and active!
