Dr. Ellis is that exceptionally rare physician whose compassion and concern for the patient and their family is equal to his unsurpassed skill level.
Patient | March 31, 2018

I have already recommended him to my oldest brother who has the same health issues as I do.
Patient | March 26, 2018

Dr. Ellis is the best doctor that I have had at Vanderbilt. He takes time to answer questions and is not quick to dismiss any concerns or questions that I have had. I drive over 2 hours to see him because I trust him more than the doctors in the town that I live in.
Patient | March 3, 2018

Dr. Ellis was in a hurry, but did patiently answer questions.
Patient | March 1, 2018

Great experience!
Patient | January 31, 2018

When I commented that we were waiting an hour to complete my visit I was told there was a rush of patients to deal with, causing some of the reason for delay. I have high respect for how Dr. Ellis' Staff speaks to and handles people. One issue I brought to Dr. Ellis was the frustration of lab results from the hospital back home to VUMC Coumadin Lab. I seem to always have to follow up because results are not received at VUMC. Who is at fault I don't know, Cumberland Medical Center or VUMC.
