Dr Ellis is definitely one of the BEST cardiologists that I have seen. His concern for his patients is obvious from the moment he walks in the door until he leaves. Very smart, extremely personable. I feel very fortunate to have him at the helm of my cardiology care.

Always the best of service. Never have experienced a problem.

Very knowledgable, seemed concerned about my well being - I'm very satisfied with his care.
Patient | July 18, 2016

As the time passes since the operation last year, I do not expect long visits with the Doctor; Dr. Ellis did not waste our time but did cover everything that was needed and listened to, responded, (and made arrangements for a follow-up test), all my concerns about the heart pain post operation.
Patient | June 20, 2016

Everything was perfect.
Patient | June 17, 2016

Dr. Ellis is a wonderful doctor whom I trust completely to provide me with the best available care I can find!

I have full confidence in Dr. Ellis' medical knowledge and experience based on the work he did straightening out problems with installation of my pacemaker by Dr. Wathen.

I have been having test run for 2 weeks.
