I've seen Dr Ellis quite a few times. He actually cares about fixing the problem. He enquired in to what else was going on with my health, got my medical charts from my family physician and assessed blood results, MRI's, and X-rays. I have reccomended him to all my friends and family. His staff is great as well. Always friendly and helpful.

From the first time I met Doc Ellis and his staff I truly felt like I had a extended family. My husband and I have been helped so much by Doc Ellis. I had several problem areas and he knew exactly what was needed to help me and I have stayed with him and his recommendation for treatments. I have received much healing and can now do the things I enjoy!! I am so very grateful and feel blessed by God to have been led to his office. I would definitely recommend Gateway Chiropractic to All!!!

Gail Passmore in Clarkrange, TN – Oct 03, 2018
I recently moved to Tennessee and asked my previous Chiropractic for a referral. He highly recommended Dr Ellis, primarily due to similar techniques. I am very pleased with Dr Ellis. He is a great listener, caring and has helped me with pain relief. He spends the time I needed to ensure my visit was well worth the investment.

Very professional. Additionally, he is one of the few medical professionals that will stop and take some time to talk with you and to fully explain what is going on with your condition. The BEST chiropractor that I have ever been to by far.

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.
