Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Horrible! I think 1 star is too high. Total waste of time. He did not even evaluate my mom yet he charged Medicare for the visit. She was referred for surgery clearance and now due to his negligence surgery is postponed. I am furious and filing a complaint with Medicare

I have been a patient of Dr. Ellison since July 1987. He has guided me through 3 heart by-pass surgeries and continues to provide excellent medical care for me. He is always gracious and patiently listens to my concerns and before providing me medical advice. My good health today is a testament of his excellent care.

I was scheduled for a treadmill with Dr. Ellison. An assistant did it. I did not have any contact with the doctor. That was on a Friday. On the next Wednesday I called to get the test results. An assistant called me back several hours later to say the doctor would contact me the next day. Then the assistant called, not the doctor, who told me he said the test result was "OK." At no time was I even able to have telephone contact with the doctor. How can I recommend a doctor based upon that?
