Patient Comments (2)

Although he appeared rushed, it was a new patient visit and he did ask multiple times if we had any questions. He and his staff were very polite and helpful.

I was a patient of Dr. Ellerbe at Affinity, Monroe, LA for about two years before he left. It was a welcome relief to have found him. Mr. Ellerbe was a kind and sympathetic doctor who I will be hard pressed to find a replacement.
