I simply adore Dr Ellis. Was his patient in BR and am going to make app at the new office. All the stars are from BR. visits. He is the kindest man I've ever met. A wonderful Dr who actually listens and treats your pain, but your mind too. Wouldn't trust anyone else with my spine . I tried to get by with over the counter, but when I had to stop running in 5 K's, decided a trip of 1 1/2 hours is worth seeing him again. He will get me back in those races, I haven't a doubt. He truly is the best.

Very Much NOT a People's person. Will NOT say anything to you unless you say something first. Will NOT go the extra mile to help with prior authorization with your insurance company if your on medicaid to help his patients get the best medication for pain but wants his cash upfront per visit.

Dr. Ellis is a doctor who listens first to your medical complaints. He's very calm and explain to you some history of your medical conditions. He takes times to ask you several questions about your family history. Recommend what treatment actions to use to ease your condition.
