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.
