Dr. Ellendula and the entire staff at Frisco Behavioral Health Group have helped myself and my wife so much. Dr. Ellendula is very compassionate and listens to what you have to say. She understands that everyone's body is different so she asks how you feel when taking certain medications because some people might feel differently on a certain medication than others. I would highly recommend seeing anyone in her office if you are in need of consoling or treatment for any reason. They do an amazing job!

Dr Ellendula is amazing. She really listens to how I am feeling and is open to exploring options when treatment deems it necessary. She takes the time to get to know her patients, is non judgmental and compassionate. I have a fairly complex range of needs due to a pituitary tumor and she has taken the time to ensure she knows what is safe and will be the most effective for me. I never feel rushed and I feel comfortable with all aspects of my visits. I have recommended her to several friends and they are all as equally as impressed as I am. I am grateful I found her.

I have been seeing Dr. Ellendula for 18 years and she is the best! I had gone to numerous other doctors trying to find one who would listen and help get my medications straightened out. She took the time to listen and we worked together to find a dose that was perfect for me. She is compassionate, considerate and always on time.

Best of Best forget the Rest! Dr. Ellendula saved my life. I've been a patient for six years. She takes the time to listen and treat my illness with compassion, care and discrete. She is not a pill pusher. She works with me to find a solution to my mental illness that works for me. We were able to find the right medication routine and a healthy organic mental balance with Dr. Ellendula's wealth of knowledge and experience. I have peace in my life again. Thank you, Dr. Ellendula!!

Seen her for multiple years, she has helped me with the correct meds adjusted as needed awesome advice. She talks to you like a person not a textbook and gives counseling and meds that work for you. And when talking she is able to take what you’re saying and recognize what you mean, what you need and what is relevant. She is the most in tune doc I’ve personally ever seen. And I’m an ER nurse so I have experience with doctors. Thank you Dr. Ellendula

Dr. Ellendula is not what I expected...although, to be honest...I didn't know what to expect. I've been a patient of hers for just over two months, and I feel so much better, as it relates to ALL my "issues." She's wonderful!

Dr. Ellendula is amazing. She is loving, compassionate, kind, and really helps her patients find the right plan of action. She has been a godsend to me. She listens carefully and genuinely cares about you as not only her patient, but as a human being. I’ve been through some very low lows, and she has helped me every step of the way. I highly recommend her. Her staff is also wonderful. They are so cheerful and kind. I walk in feeling loved and walk out the same way. Keep up the good work, guys!

Dr. Ellendulla takes a genuine interest in her patients , and works constantly to find the most appropriate and meaningful treatment on an individual basis. She truly listens to you in order to help determine an appropriate plan of action. I would highly recommend Dr. Ellendulla. Especially if you have seen physicians in the past who stick to the same treatment and are not willing to try an array of options to help you feel your best!

Dr. Ellendula is a phenomenal psychiatrist t that I would recommend to anyone. After seeing over 5 other primary and specialty care doctors; Dr. Ellendula was the only one who listened and prescribed the medication that I truly needed. I am the happiest I have ever been, and I thank Dr. Ellendula for that.
