Dr. Ellis is professional yet approachable. He was very flexible with me as I was held up in traffic and late for my appointment and he still took the time to meet with me without making me feel rushed. Always a nice experience.
He is very respectful, patient, and understanding. I would highly recommend him to those looking for a psychiatrist.
Very kind and concerned. Empathetic, seems to want to help.
This was my first visit. I felt very comfortable sharing with Dr. Ellis. My first impression was that he was a caring individual who was engaged in my issues.

Excellent. Very knowledgeable and helpful
I was higly impressed with Dr. Ellis. He was very genuine and accommodating to my needs. He was also very attentive and spent time to get to know me.
Dr Ellis came out of his office at about 1145, my scheduled time, looked at me, said nothing and then left. He does not answer phone calls. I waited 2 hours past my appointment time.
It was a nice visit. Nice guy. However he double booked at my pre-confirmed time with another patient which made for an awkward start but fine nonetheless.
Great first impression!
Dr. Ellis was wonderful! He was very easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable sharing my concerns. I was very nervous prior to the visit, but he had a very calming demeanor and listened intently. He was very informative with his suggestions for my care. I would absolutely recommend him!
I though Dr. Ellis was a wonderful listener and really helpful for my first visit. As a woman I typically am very uneasy about being men, but he was really great and very patient. If your looking for someone who is bubbly he is not your doctor. But if your like me, looking for someone to just listen and to help pinpoint your mental health needs and goals and make them tangible then he is your man!
Great professional - easy to talk to, quick to see, very attentive.
