Dr. Ellis is a wonderful doctor
I had a colonoscopy with Dr. Ellis in 2016 and again last month, in June, 2022. Dr. Ellis made me feel very comfortable and everything went smoothly. Dr. Ellis is competent and dedicated. She is also very kind, attentive, easy to talk to, and caring. I feel lucky to have such a wonderful doctor as Dr. Ellis and I recommend her highly!

I would NEVER RECOMMEND Dr. Ellis
I had a terrible experience with her, she is irresponsible, can be nasty and gave me the wrong advice which I have been suffering with for years due to treatment.

Knows her stuff
Uneventful which was great! Went to sleep, woke up and didn't feel hung over, Dr Ellis came to talk and provide the highlights. She was quick but she had other patients waiting and I had a teleconference in a week for any biopsy results. During that appointment, I was given the opportunity to ask any and all questions. The reason why I didn't do 5 stars, was because the woman who books the appointments was very condescending and spoke to you like you were an idiot. I never was able to get the prep Dr Ellis ordered because of this. The pharmacy and Insurance company and my benefit manual all stated I needed pre-auth for the prep powder pacs but assistant insisted they were all wrong so it never got filled, ran out of time going back and forth with her. I have white coat syndrome and she was very sensitive to this. I've already recommended a friend who is going in a few days. Hope it works out.

Never Been Treated by Medical Staff so poorly.
I have been seeing Dr Ellis for at least 2 years and she has genuinely helped me with swallowing issues and hemorrhoids. She is brief and to the point and knows her stuff. For which I have always been appreciative of. However, the staff, at least one staff member is the rudest person I have ever dealt with in a position in which you are supposed to be caring and considerate as I was today. I go there because I am experiencing pain and seeking help. Today I was told I have a level of attitude ever single time I come in. That’s a first for me because I always thank people for their help and kindness. Today though, I was all but shown the door by this behind the desk staff member.

Unfortunately, you are treated more like a bill to submit than a person. Very quick to move on to the next patient. I did not have good results & instead of a discussion I was quickly referred to someone else. They already have the paper ready at the desk which makes me wonder how often they do it. Was in pain & promised a call back from the office & it never came. I watched the front desk girl tell a patient that she would go speak to the physician & she waited a few minutes, never left her seat & then she got back on the phone & told the patient that she spoke with the doctor. I chose to find another physician who was much more caring.

I love Dr. Ellis and her entire staff. They have been nothing short of kind, professional and communicative. i just completed my first colonoscopy and upper GI procedure and could not have felt more safe and in great care. Three cheers to this Doctor and her team.

I recently had a colonscopy performed by Dr. Ellis, who came to me highly recommended. I am new to the area and was worried about finding a good doctor. Dr. Ellis, and her staff and the facility, exceeded my expectations. I found Dr. Ellis to be patient, through and competent. Her staff helped me a great deal. Both the Doctor and her staff, more than sufficiently followed up. It was just as my friend had said. I have confidence in Dr. Ellis and would highly recommend her.

The waiting here is ridiculous- the attitude of the receptionists is also borderline rude . Dr Ellis herself is great - but is it worth the rudeness and waiting? Not sure

Worst experience from hemorrhoid banding. I almost went to the ER. The pain began the moment I walked out of the office. Thank goodness I had someone with me to drive. Walking to my car I broke out into a sweat, I almost fainted and the pain was the intensity of child birth without an epidural. For the next two hours it was excruciating. I was moaning and rolling back and forth in bed. To add insult to injury, she didn't get the hemorrhoid I complained about even though I told her during the exam where it was. It took me three days to recover from the pain. When I called her office an hour after I left about why I felt so much pain (level 10) her nurse assistant told me that women sometimes experience a lot of pain. Dr. Ellis did not reach out to me after I made the call and I only spoke to the nurse assistant. I was never told this reaction was a possibility and it was never mentioned in the video of the procedure on her website.

Dr. Ellis is an excellent physician. Her bedside manners are superb, and her knowledge base is unrivaled. My previous gastroenterologist was a very nervous man with a rude staff. I fired him and took a chance with Dr. Ellis. After my initial visit I knew that I hit a home run. For those of you who read some complaints about her typing while she listens to you explain your medical issue; know that by law she has to enter the information into a national data base. The days of writing patient notes in a chart by hand went out with your grandmother's high button shoes.

Dr Ellis did not introduce herself when she entered the room. She sat at her computer and interviewed me about my complaints snd history with no eye contact. She used different words in describing my concern. Ex: If I said cramps she wrote spasm. She told me to look at her during the exam to see if I was in pain. Bottom line. Rude, abrasive, apathetic, and judgmental.
