Dr Ellis and his staff are wonderful. I called while I was in the area on vacation. My back was hurting so bad I knew I would not be able to enjoy my vacation so I called Dr Ellis's office and they got me in that day. The adjustment was amazing and I was treated like I would be a long term patient. The staff were so nice and helpful. I was seen 2 more times that week and felt better with each visit. I was able to drive back to FL without being in pain. I would highly recommend Dr Ellis.

I needed help with a pain in my ribs and thought they were broken. Dr. Ellis took me in for x-rays within an hour. His explanation of my problem was very easy to understand and he sounded concerned about me. NOT just another account!

Dr. Ellis and his staff are very compassionate and effective in treating me. When I am hurting, they make sure that he sees me as soon as possible, usually the same day. Dr. Ellis is able to examine me and immediately perform the treatment necessary.

Dr. Ellis and his staff were caring and compassionate. I got worked right in and when I left I felt so much better, not just physically though. They make you feel like family and not just a number. I would definitely recommend Dr. Ellis to all my friends and family.

When I left Memphis 21 years ago, my chiropractor there recommended only one chiropractor in Crossville--Dr. Michael Ellis. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Ellis, and I have been his patient ever since. I have recommended his services to family and friends countless times over the years. Dr. Ellis has helped me when I could barely walk into his office with severe back pain. He has helped relieve my migraines so many times that I cannot count. He is an amazing doctor and a wonderful friend.

I have been a patient of Dr Ellis since I relocated to TN. His staff, Beth and Heather, are very warm welcoming individuals who treat you as though you are their only patient. They show real concern of how you are doing and take the time with you as though you are a family member. Dr Ellis has an amazing bedside manor and listens to what you have to say. He is very gentle and knows what works best for the symptoms you are having. He knows what he is doing! I HIGHLY recommend this office!!
in Crossville, TN |
Dr. Ellis and staff are caring, efficient, and very knowledgeable! I'm very pleased with the care I receive and the office atmosphere is very welcoming!!!

Dr. Ellis is the best. I have been going to him for 14 years. He keeps me healthy by seeing him once a month for an adjustment. I do a lot of computer work and it is very hard on my lower back. He has even recommended a neurologist for a problem he wasn't able to fix. You would never hear a medical doctor recommending a chiropractor.
in Crossville, TN |
I was treated like a valued patient and Dr. Ellis really listened to me. I felt like he took me seriously.
Dr. Ellis is very professional. Astute in his knowledge and treatment. I was in acute pain because if injury. At my first appointment the exam was very thorough, the adjustment and therapy were an incredible relief. I trust Dr. Ellis to give me the highest level of care.
