I started seeing Dr. Ellison in 2017 when I moved to .... I have never had a bad experience with either her or the office she works out of. I really appreciate that almost everything I need is in the one building on Book.

Dr. Ellison spent a great deal of time with me, answering all of my questions without ever seeming rushed. Her physical assessment of me was professional and respectful. I look forward to maintaining our client-provider relationship through the years.

I have had numerous doctors since becoming an adult. I always quit them because they were not listening or paying attention. I suffered and had bad reactions to medicines because my doctors were too busy or not interested. Dr. Ellison is completely different. She hears me, and she always works to make me healthier than I was when I came in. She never makes me feel like I can't get better or that my shoes don't matter. She is the best doctor I have ever met.
