Dr. Mike Ellman is an integral part of the Denver sports medicine team at Panorama Orthopedic and Spine Center. Dr. Ellman, most recently with the Steadman Clinic in Vail, is a fellowship trained, board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in hip, knee and shoulder injuries. He brings a unique experience in treating athletes of all ages. He has a special interest in hip arthroscopy and the treatment of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and hip labral tears. Young and middle-aged athletes, including those involved in running, hockey, soccer, volleyball, golf, and dancing, are at higher risk for developing pain associated with FAI and labral tears. In the past, many of these injuries went undiagnosed and untreated, but thanks to new techniques used by a select group of surgeons-including Dr. Ellman – physicians are able to successfully treat this injury. “My goal is to deliver the highest-quality care to each and every patient that walks through my door, from weekend warriors to professional athletes,” he said. “I do my best to help patients achieve their goals, whatever they may be.” Dr. Ellman completed his orthopaedic residency training at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. As a resident, he published over 50 peer-reviewed manuscripts and book chapters focused on cartilage biology, biochemical pathways involved in osteoarthritis, and was awarded the American Academy of Orthopaedics Baxter Healthcare Scholarship for his research in hip arthroscopy. He also participated in sports team coverage for the Chicago Bulls, Chicago White Sox, DePaul University’s men’s and women’s soccer teams, and several local high school football teams.
Verified Patient Reviews
Getting any surgical procedure can be a disconcerting experience. In fact, Dr. Ellman was my "second opinion" doctor. While my first doctor wanted to push some more involved surgeries on, Dr. Ellman was confident a regular labrum repair would do. During surgery, the tear was larger than expected, and extra work on my hip had to be done, and they handled it super well. Dr. Ellman and his team must have done an amazing job because I have had no complications in the midst of healing. Two weeks out and I am on minimal amount of over-the-counter painkillers. I would recommend Dr. Ellman to any of my friends!
Very nice, positive and explained my situation clearly on what my options were.
A very kind and understanding professional. Good at making a patient feel comfortable, also good at explaining what is going on with the operation and recovery.
Easygoing, direct and very professional. I chose his recommendation for the less invasive option which I appreciate. I previously had five orthopedic surgeries in addition to several others and do whatever I can to avoid additional ones. My neck and lower back have severe degeneration from multiple injuries so any preventive and minimal treatments are appreciated. My background includes over forty years practicing general dentistry so I really appreciate the consideration given to me by Dr. Ellman before he even knew of my prior professional experience.
Dr. Elman is always very friendly and will spend time with you to discuss any questions you may have. He is always very welcoming!
Dr. Ellman is very personable and doesn't make you feel like he's in a hurry and ready to run off to the next patient. He's also very thorough and has caught things another Doctor and Radiologist missed in my MRI and X-Ray.
They need to get more help at the front desk. They're so rushed that they're not friendly; they can't help w/anything beyond getting us to CHECK OURSELVES IN; and I don't know if it was intentional or if they forgot to tell him, but my appointment was at 1:30 & he didn't come into the room until 2:00. I heard him outside talking with co-workers & making phone calls so he wasn't running behind with other patients. They're very emphatic that we get there 15 minutes before our appointment in order to be 'courteous to other patients' but all I got from it was extra time to wait.
Always polite, professional, caring and very knowledgeable.
Courteous, efficient professional. Spent necessary time to completely answer all questions.
I have 6 kids who are all athletes and have had to see multiple for doctors. Dr. Ellman is by far our favorite doctor. He is an expert in his field without being arrogant. He has a great sense of humor and my kids actually enjoy it when they have to see him.
Having surgery is not fun. Having your surgeon be Dr. Ellman makes it better. From the surgery to the treatment plan, Dr. Ellman was thorough. As far as surgeries go, I can't recommend anyone more highly than Dr. Ellman and his team.
I really liked my first meeting with Dr. Ellman. He was straightforward, gave me a few options and asked how I felt about them and what I wanted to do. I told him what I thought, and he agreed with my responses, and we developed a calendar, moving forward. I am *almost* looking forward to my surgery!
Gear guy. Glade he was able to assist to me. Dr. Ellman thank you
Nice office. High tech. Comfy waiting area. Office staff was nice and informative - making sure to let patients know about wait times. Staff doesn't scream your name when they are looking for you. Dr. Ellman is obviously smart and good at what he does. He explains everything very well.
Though I've had only a few visits with Dr. Ellman, he has been thorough and pleasant and taken the time to outline possible treatment plans. Also, he has been willing to listen to my concerns.
I found Dr Ellman to be knowledgeable, thorough, providing clear explanations to questions, willing to take the time to discuss concerns and genuinely concerned about his patients. I would not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends.
He is the most sincere and kind doctor. I always request that he give me the cortisone shots in my hips rather than his assistant. He always get the shots in the correct spot the first time!
Dr. Ellman took the time to both listen to me and explain what he believed to be my issue. He was knowledgeable, compassionate and conservative in his approach which was exactly what I had hoped. Highly recommend him!
Dr. Ellman is caring, compassionate and considerate to his patients. He can't retire until I'm dead.
Excellent explanations and future treatment plans
Dr. Ellman was very friendly and informative. Took time to answer my questions and was very thorough in explaining my problem.
After dislocating my knee (repeatedly) and spending 5 months with a doctor telling me I just needed a little PT, I decided to get a second opinion and was so lucky to find Dr. Ellman. I'm an avid road cyclist and was in so much pain I couldn't even walk up stairs. Dr. Ellman was thorough in his evaluation and diagnosis, and we worked together on the plan of action. He did arthroscopy to remove a bone fragment stuck in my IT Band (that only he discovered from images), repair a torn miniscus, and did an LCL release to get my patella tracking right. I'm now 6 weeks post-op and doing fantastic! Back on my bike thanks to Dr E!
Dr. Ellman was great, quick and easy diagnosis with good options. Wait time was almost 1:50 minutes, unfortunately when you make appointments when working, it's hard to allocate almost 21/2 hours for what took about 25 minutes with x-ray and consultation.
He was incredibly informative and made me feel much better about my hip injury. Great bedside manner, very knowledgeable, I am soooo glad I went to see him! The office staff was friendly too. Excellent experience.
Dr. Ellman's care and consideration for me from the get go has been top notch. One of the best surgical experiences I have ever had, and I've had many! Not only was my issue was resolved, the therapy afterwards and since then has also been extremely professional and pro-active. I would recommend the Panorama Team, and Dr. Ellman especially to anyone who suffers from hip pain and issues because he is leading the practice in the innovative and uninvasive orthoscopic procedure that was conducted on my hip. He's conservative yet decisive and very well mannered and friendly. He truly cares about his patients and it shows.
Thought he gave me good advice. Will be seeing him again for further treatment . He was very professional.
Dr. Ellman is an amazing practicing surgeon. Moreover, he is incredibly kind and cares deeply for all of his patients. He ensures everyone is comfortable and takes the time to answers all questions completely. I am so grateful for having the team at Panorama treat me. Everyone has always been wonderful!
Both my wife and I have had the opportunity to be treated by Dr. Ellman and I can't say enough good things about him. He's extremely knowledgeable, doesn't sugar coat things but also has a warm bedside manner. I would highly recommend Dr. Ellman to anyone with hip issues!
May have discovered a completely new problem that may be causing my pain.
Very attentive and obviously still loves what he does. He has an excitement about his work that drives him, even when he is suffering from a URI.
Dr Ellman has been an awesome doctor. Super helpful & explains everything very well. I would rather wait in the waiting room than in the patient room if there is a wait though.
Dr. Ellman is very knowledgable and seemed to understand the symptoms but i don't think we got to the cause of the problem. Although the results was good news: No surgery necessary. I was left a bit unsatisfied that the problem will not reoccur. I wasn't in pain until 20-30 min after the appointment. Just a dull ache but left me wondering if PT was a good solution since the stretching seems to aggravate the condition.
I would highly recommend Dr. Ellman. I was in severe hip pain for a year with several things going on. Dr. Ellman took a conservative approach and surgically repaired one of my issues, allowing the other one time to possibly heal on its own. While in surgery Dr. Ellman found that my hip needed a replacement labrum rather than a repair. His work was beautiful, and six weeks out everything is healing and looking great. First time in a year with no pain. Dr.Ellman surrounds himself with a wonderful team . They are there for you through the whole process. Ortho Hospital where he does his surgeries is an awesome place as well.
Would recommend Dr. Ellman in a heartbeat to my own family and anybody in pain.
Very attentive today ??
Great visit - spent just the right amount of time explaining the potential problem with my hip and some alternatives. He answered all the questions I had, and I left with a plan.
Dr Ellman was delightful! He was friendly, engaging, and very knowledgeable. He had to give me bad news about my hip but gave it in a hopeful and encouraging way. I was allowed to express all my concerns and ask all my questions without once feeling rushed. He restored my faith in the medical community after a couple of dismissive and unhelpful consultations with 2 other doctors. I'm only sad that he doesn't do the surgery I need.
I was very impressed and pleased with his sense of urgency to see that I could avoid having to return within a few days to complete the next step in my treatment plan.
Very impressed and explained everything so I could understand.
He tailored his feedback to my unique situation and was able to hear my 'extreme/unfortunate' reaction to meds post op. Very supportive and encouraging re moving forward. Thank you!
Great bedside manner --explained everything fully and answered all of my questions!
Dr. Ellman is great in dealing with my 15 year old daughter who will need hip surgery. He is very kind and caring and his bedside manner is impressive. We are very happy that our physical therapist referred us to Dr. Ellman!
Very personable, felt like I could talk to him easily and openly. After seeing many Doctors over 6 months, he was able to diagnose my hip and offer solutions. It does take a long time to get to see him, but defiantly with the wait. His staff is also very professional and nice.
I think Dr. Ellman is the best hip doctor in Denver. He had treated my wife and she had great results so when I had issues with my hip there was no doubt which doctor I wanted to treat me. After the first visit I feel really good about the plan and the way he's approaching my case.
Dr. Ellman is a great doctor and has been helping me become pain free!
Dr. Ellman is absolutely wonderful!
Dr. Ellman was kind, interested in what I had to say, thoughtful in his interaction and explanation of my condition and happy to answer all questions I had. I would highly recommend him!
This doctor is not only obviously well versed but genuinely engaged. I appreciate being heard and wisely advised of my options. He is in my mind no doubt a very kind man as well as wildly talented. Very grateful for him being on my team.
One of the best doctors I have ever seen. I can't say enough positive things about Dr. Ellman. I recommend him to everyone I meet.
I really look forward to my visits with Dr. Ellman. He is very professional but very friendly and appears to be very concerned about my general-being. Thanks Dr, Ellman, your're a "Cool" dude!
Dr. Ellman takes the entire situation and makes his determinations by putting what is best for his patients first. He motivates and encourages you to keep going. He's honest and up front about what you will be facing. I highly recommend him.
Dr Ellman is very knowledgeable and a complete professional. He has an easy-going manner and is very straight forward. I feel very confident in the fact he is providing my daughter with the best possible care and am confident in his ability to diagnosis and treat her. We are very thankful for the referral we received for him. We highly recommend him.
Dr. Ellman is always very friendly and professional. I definitely feel like I am in good hands when I see him.
I think the Panorama team is doing an excellent job during the construction. Their efficiency was impressive and positive attitude was appreciated. Thanks to you all!
Always pleasant and helpful. Gives me hope that some time in my life I will be pain free.
Great doctor. Listened, got right to the point, allowed me to make the best choice with him and gave me a positive feeling towards its outcome. Thanks!
Dr. was very caring, kind, and knowledgeable. Staff was pleasant and patient. Everyone there showed a lot of interest in patients well being. Dr. took the time to listen and diagnosis my problem. I left there feeling very good about my visit and treatment plan.
Very informative and helpful!
great dr, waited long
He is a very friendly person. Good sense of humor and an engaging personality.
I had to wait 50 minutes (plus the 15 min early check in waiting time that is requested by Panorama) for a 5 minute appointment with Dr. Ellman. He did not apologize for the waiting time, not did any nurses tell me that he was running so severely late. The appointment itself was a bit rushed, but fine. As a side note, a 3-star rating for a 60 minute wait is an incredibly poor rating system. Three stars indicates "average," and having patients wait 30-60 minutes is disrespectful of their time and far from average.
He is great. I wanted off my crutches he told me I had to be patient and then patted my hand. He is the best.
Dr. Ellman's PA, Barbara Wright, saw me today and I couldn't have asked for more professional and caring treatment. Barbara was very through with her explanations and even though I had not met her before, it didn't take long for me to develop a gut feeling that this person was very skilled and really cared that I understood all the options I had. In short, I felt that she really cared about my well being. Dr. Ellman was also kind enough to come in to the examination room to check up on me and to see if I had any questions of him. Would I return to these folks for any future medical needs in their field? Without a moment's hesitation, I would indeed.
Dr. Ellman is fantastic! I scheduled a morning appointment hoping to avoid a wait, but spent 30 minutes in the room waiting. I guess when your surgeon is great - they are busy. Just be aware if you are in a time crunch... you will likely need more time.
He is very informative, he tells you what needs to take place gives you the ways to get done what needs to be done. He is very smart and very intelligent.
It was fine, but it's difficult to schedule appointments when he is only in that office on a limited schedule, and I work full-time.
He was extremely knowledgeable of my unique circumstances and explained everything very clearly
Once again Dr. Ellman took the time needed to thoroughly review my case and answer all my questions, which were many at this particular appointment. I am guessing my long wait time of nearly an hour was due to today Monday being his first day back in the practice after having been gone for a week.
Dr. Ellman has a great bedside manner. He clearly explains the procedures and does a great job of addressing concerns in a way that made me feel comfortable. He did a fantastic job on my hip.
Was very good.
Dr. Ellman is bright, personable, and best of all, he is a great doctor - he diagnosed my problem immediately, recommended a course of action, performed a surgical procedure on my hip, and resolved a long-standing pain issue. I recommend him HIGHLY to anyone suffering from hip pain. He is the best hip doctor in the city, the state, and maybe the country!
He is very polite and genuine, provides adequate information and answers questions. Most of all his work is detailed and thorough.
Dr. Ellman is extremely confident in his skills, therefore when you leave his office there is no doubt in your mind what the problem is and how that problem can be remedied. That is a great feeling!
I had no pain after three weeks. After a decade of pain in my hip joint. Other docs dismissed me but Dr Ellman found the problem and fixed it. FIXED IT!
he is an awesome surgeon. My daughter is a Tier 1 hockey player and he has done a fantastic job on her care and recovery from hip surgery!
Dr. Ellman asks great questions, listens, understands, pays attention to your symptoms and any changes in them, and offers you the best possible treatment options. He's punctual, ethical, and very competent. I trust him a 100%, and am confident that any patient would feel the same way after seeing him once.
Great doctor, great staff.
Great doctor, very understanding and listened to my problems. Checked everything out, explained in detail what the problem was, and happily reported that I have nothing seriously wrong. I'm just a 66 year old guy trying to act like I'm in my 20's, my comment not his.
I was happy that consultation, X-rays, and treatment were all provided in one appointment.
Dr Ellman took the needed time to spend with me even though the front office made me over an hour late for my appointment. Al in xrays was great also. Corey, who helped Dr Ellman, was efficient. Very satisfied once I made it past the front desk. Marti, front desk manager, met with me after my appointment to talk about my experience with checking in. She listened and appreciated my feedback. And I appreciated her caring to make the practice better.
The entire visit, from the front office staff, to Monica, Al, Sam and Dr. Ellman was smooth and exceptional! I would highly recommend Panorama!! Thank you for your excellent care!
Good listener, personable, confident and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
He is usually booked for about a month for an appointment, but totally worth the wait. If you want an amazing orthopedic that knows what he's doing and will give you proper treatment for your injury, this guy is the guy you want!
Quite honestly, Dr. Ellman is the best doctor I have seen. After struggling with 2 other surgeries that did not fix my problems, Dr. Ellman was able to diagnose my condition in a matter of miniutes and then perform my surgery within two months. He is very intelligent with good insight and judgment, and is also understanding, compassionate and has excellent bedside manner. He has enabled me to get my life back, and I will forever be grateful to him. He is the best!! Linda M.
As always, Dr. Ellman was pleasant, yet to-the-point, and he took all the time I needed to have my questions answered fully. One of the very best doctors I have ever dealt with.
Everyone was very friendly! There were computer problems in some of the rooms which caused some delay.
I highly recommend Dr. Ellman. As a mother of four boys, two-time Ironman finisher, business-owner, etc., it was important to me to have full-use of my hip and be pain free. Dr. Ellman reviewed all my options and gave me best/worse case scenario outcomes. A year post-surgery and I am back to living my life! I can't thank him enough nor recommend him enough!
Too soon to say. If he can assist me with a plan to alleviate my pain and help me regain my quality of life and desired activity level then I'll be sold. Until then I'm skeptical as always. Otherwise he was very easy to interact with and didn't make me feel rushed through the appointment. So for that I am grateful. Thank you
Best Orthopedic I've seen - and I've seen quite a few. He's very descriptive with his diagnosis, yet uses very down to earth language.
Dr. Ellman is amazing. He is extremely knowledgeable and skilled in his profession. I would recommend my loved ones to Dr. Ellman and know that they were in good hands. My surgery was easy and recovery was a breeze.
Dr. Ellman is wonderful, he's been taking care of my hip problems for almost a year now and I couldn't have found a better doctor. He listens to my concerns and addresses them immediately. He is down to earth, makes medical jargon understandable, and makes surgery/recovery bearable. He has helped me through a year of hip problems and I would most definitely recommend him.
Easy to talk to. Clearly explains processes and procedures. Does not seem rushed when he's with you.
Dr. Ellman was very caring and understanding. Very knowledgeable. He explains everything so you can understand them.
Friendly, was able to joke around with him so he has a good since of humor. I like him. He seems to know his stuff!!!
Very detailed and concise. Spoke in terms I could understand. His attitude was both positive and friendly.
Pre Surgery: Dr. Ellman and staff took much time and care to educate and guide me through the upcoming surgical process and address concerns. During Surgery: I'm amazed at the skill involved in assessing and treating my condition, as well as the areas of concern that had been discovered during the procedure (as documented in the post operative note). Supporting staff were all very attentive and informative. Post Surgery: Still as awesome as previously stated, I expect this to continue...
Dr. Ellman was pleasant, professional, and very reassuring. I felt comfortable with him, and also confident that he wasn't going to "invent" a problem to solve for me. I was very happy with my visit.
This was my first post-op visit with Dr Ellman. He listens to my questions and provides heaps of information. If I don't understand, he's able to explain in simple, non-medical terms which makes unpleasant topics a little less scary. I'd like to say its always a pleasure, but hey, he's my surgeon. Fortunately for me, he's probably one of the best physicians I've worked with - ever - for any reason.
The office staff and medical assistants and techs were all very nice and explained everything well. Dr Ellman was very thorough and thoughtful, very good bedside manner.
He carefully listened to my complains. I had a x-ray of my hip. He read the x-ray. Made a prognosis and explained various treatments and the selected the treatment best for me. I received a cortisone shot in my hip and it was relatively painless using the freezing method.
I thought he was great, I went to him for a 2nd opinion about the pain in my hip. It was great to have a doctor explain everything to me in detail and explain my options for treatment. I would highly recommend to anyone to visit Dr. Ellman.
Very professional. Short and to the point. Easy to understand.
I liked the fact that he showed interest in finding a solution to the problem instead of going into surgery immediately. Plus he was very handsome.
Not the extremely high quality I was expecting. I went in for my first visit. We reviewed my MRI and concluded that I have a tear and deterioration in my hip. I have a follow up in 6 weeks. I was prescribed physical therapy twice a week and a cortisone shot for an unknown date. I have been having pain for years, I went in with pain, and I left in pain unsure if I will ever feel relief.
In and out quickly. Prompt and efficient. Asked all the right questions and answered all of the questions I had. All of his staff are professional.
I was pleased that he thought that my progress was on track. He is very good at listening and providing answers to any questions you may have.
Seen him for both a shoulder and hip issue both of which are on their way to recovery. Excellent doctor and to the point which is what I like.
Truly felt like he was committed to helping us find a diagnosis for our son's difficult problem. Would highly recommend him.
Dr. Ellman is a great physician, thorough and caring. Just allow enough time with your appts, he always seems to be running late.
Dr. Ellman is very knowledgeable and professional. My surgery was very successful and couldn't be happier with the results. I would highly recommend him for any hip related injuries.
Dr. Ellman was great - very thorough. He has a great bedside manner, and what I appreciated most was that he did not recommend surgery as the first option! I will definately go back to see him for any further orthopedic consultations I require.
Very personable, professional and knowledgable
The facility was easy to find with plenty of parking. The office is right inside the front door of the building. The waiting area was clean and comfortable. Everyone I interacted with was friendly, competent and smiled. Dr. Ellman was friendly and professional.
Very thorough and patient doctor - he listened to my concerns and provided a course of action which is exactly what I was hoping for in the appointment. The full staff (nurses and PA) were all very knowledgeable, professional, and helpful in the process.
So very personal while being very professional.
Dr. Ellman, and his staff, are excellent! Always seen in a prompt manner. Always treated with respect. All questions answered and very thorough information and instructions are giving. He listens to patients concerns and addresses every question without making you feel rushed. Highly recommend!
Confident, but considerate. Made me feel comfortable that the potentially scary thing I was going through would be ok.
It was worth the wait! He is an awesome doctor with a great bedside manner and answered all of my questions. I know he spends a good deal of time with each patient, so again, I think it's worth the wait in the lobby.
He was caring, very helpful with my knee issue and fun to chat with - great patient repore.
He was very pleasant and seemed well informed looking forward to visiting with him again if I don't have to have my knee replaced I will have Dr friend do my knee replacement
He is a really great doctor. I love that he is willing to try other avenues before opting for more invasive procedures. He is very thorough and explains things on a level that is understandable. We are rather impressed with him. As far a wait time, it was due to unseen actions that needed to take place for a correct diagnosis so there isn't any complaint about having to wait.
Very Professional; Great appointment!
Dr Ellman has a great bedside manner. He has always taken the time to explain my options and answer my questions from my injury ... my surgery ... And through my recovery. Can't say enough positive things about my experience recovering from a severe shoulder injury.
It would have been better if he had come equipped with a magic wand. Since no wand was forthcoming ( I hope he was not holding out on me) he did a good job. I appreciated being shown the x-rays and explanation. I appreciated that I could get the x-rays right there and then. It worked for me.
Dr. Ellman is a very competent and knowledgeable physician. He gave me a great list of options for treating my condition. I feel very comfortable choosing him as my surgeon.
Dr. Ellman did a great job explaining my individual situation and my treatment options. He also went the extra mile by consulting with a colleague after my appointment and calling me later in the day with additional information and additional treatment options. Thank you!
Went well, No complaints
Had to call for a same day appointment due to the development of a rash. Was able to make an immediate appointment and got in to see the doctor during clinic hours.
Dr. Ellman and his staff at Panorama have been very helpful with identifying and treating my hip problems. Very informative and supportive. My experience with surgery and after care has been excellent and exceeded my expectations.
He was very nice and informative, helpful and considerate about my pain levels and following up to create a plan for treatment.
The professionalism and friendliness of the entire staff that I have seen has been amazing. Incredibly impressed with Dr Ellman. He is very direct, very knowledgable and very personable and my surgery went very well. I really appreciate everything Dr Ellman and Pano has done for me.
First visit with Dr. Ellman, but I was very impressed. Wait time was a little long, but that was due to a scheduling error.
Great Doc. Knowledgable and more than receptive to help his patients understand the nuances. He did my hip labral repair and I am now pain free and well on my way to recovery.
he is calm, serious, direct. waits for your question and slowly gives an answer in a way you would understand. I did not feel rushed, yet its all business with him, so have your questions prepared ( IE., write them down).
Great doctor, he has a good personality and treats me like a human. Kaiser act the opposite and I will continue to see him when I get United Healthcare. My mother will see him when she switches two.
He was running behind and made the appointment feel very rushed. Didn't get all of my questions answered and don't have a clear understanding of the treatment plan.
I appreciated the fact that he wanted to avoid surgery if at all pissible
Great, friendly visit with Dr. Ellman at 6 weeks post op. He has kept me informed the whole way.
I would highly recommend Dr. Ellman. He is very polite and is very knowledgeable about hip injuries. He gives you all the information, so there are no surprises throughout the process. He performed surgery on my right hip and did an excellent job repairing all the damage. I am a little over a week after surgery and my hip feels amazing. I really appreciate all that Panorama Orthopedics has done for me. All the staff has been wonderful! Thank you so much for fixing my hip and getting rid of my pain!
He understood my problem and I didn't have to ask any additional questions.
As always it was a pleasure. He has truly changed my life. Hands down I feel that he is the best out there. If I ever have another injury I will always go to him. He isdown to earth, easy to talk to, explains things so that I can understand what is going on, and caring. He makes you feel like you are important and not just another patient.
dr ellman.he performed roto cuff surgery and reconnected my biceps after a bad accident. he was a real professional, very confident but not arrogant. Gave me all options. with all information supplied; my decision was surgery.it has been one week and I can already feel the difference. We picked dr ellman for a few reasons. His pro sports experience and his recommendations' I highly recommend him to everyone else. thanks again to the doc. Richard
Dr. Ellman was very pleasant and personable. He listened well and answered my questions. I didn't feel rushed or hurried.
I received the professional service and care I was expecting
Dr. Ellman was thorough and answered any questions I had. He explained my options and when I decided to have surgery I felt that I was in great hands. I am still recovering but feel very optimistic I will be back to swimming, biking and running in the near future!
I liked the fact that he addressed my concerns and together we came up with a treatment plan to get me back on my feet with the least invasive possible option.
Dr. Ellman is great with my daughter, concerned and warm and approachable.
Great visit, conducted testing required during the visit and got immediate results and treatment plan.
Dr Ellman is very focused on diagnosis and making sure to eliminate all possibilities before progressing into more evasive measures.
Dr. Ellman listened carefully to my complaint. After imaging my hip, he clearly explained what was causing my pain, using my x-ray and a hip movement simulation on his tablet. He laid out a step-by-step treatment plan, explaining his surgical approach and the reasons for each step. I really appreciated Dr. Ellman's friendly and professional manner.
He is a very knowledgeable Doctor and he seems to want the very best for his patients. He explained everything satisfactorily and I am very happy with my decision to possibly have another surgery with the Panorama Doctors!
Great guy and very informative and knowledgeable.
From the first visit, Dr. Ellman has been professional yet very personable. This is my first experience going through surgery and I have felt at ease and with very minimal pain. The entire staff made me feel important and comfortable. I am in the customer service industry and tend to criticize but these people go above and beyond. Thank You to the entire staff.
Dr. was excellent. Gave a thorough exam and was super helpful and patient with all of our questions. Gave excellent guidance on treatment options and recovery.
This was my first post-op office visit. Dr. Ellman took time to explain the outcome of the surgery and answer any questions I had.
fantastic dr...i feel so relieved that he is fixing my injury.
He was polite, knowladgeable and to the point. He listened to what I said understood showed me what was happening and wasted no time helping me or blowing smoke
Dr. Ellman was wonderful, he was very patient, asked a lot of questions, and gave me excellent information and explanations. I am very happy to have him as my doctor!
Kind and helpful man.
The Patient was Walker Connell
Great, professional, and thorough. Highly recommend.
first visit but very efficient. very good!
He seems very experienced and seems to have great knowledge despite his youthful appearance.
Dr Ellman was awesome as we're all the others I encountered. From check in to check out, it was all pleasant! I'm looking forward to receiving my treatment and have full faith in this office!
Dr. Ellman was very concerned about my condition and took time to explain my options. Yes I had to wait but I had xrays done in while waiting. The time that Dr. Ellman took with me explains why I had to wait, he spends that sort of time with every one of his patients.
Awesome, fixed me right up!
Dr. Ellman was very professional
Dr. Ellman is far and above the best doctor. He is friendly, courteous, and professional. Dr Ellman makes you feel like your opinion matters. He listens and includes the patient in any treatment decisions. He also has an understanding of the medical situation at hand that gives the patient confidence in what is being done for treatment.
He's fabulous! I feel so privileged and blessed to have him for my surgeon. Panorama "hit it outta the park" when they hired Dr. Ellman! He has super credentials and I'm especially pleased to know of his fellowship year with the Steadman Clinic in Vail.
I was so encouraged after my appointment with Dr. Ellman. He was professional and caring. He took the time to explain my issues and fully answer my questions. I felt like I had his full attention and never felt like he was rushed. I have complete confidence that he will get me back to doing the activities that I love and living pain free. His assistant, Sam, was also very helpful and knowledgeable.
The thing is I don't feel pain so it's hard for doctors to come to the right conclusion and like most I don't get taken seriously and they don't do anything. Then I have big problems and at that point it;s to late. So, two times I know of they all-most killed me. Then they say you presented that way to get out from under. I don't know how my shoulder is going to be in a couple years cause I have one doctor telling me bad and the other saying don't worry.
Dr Ellman was very informative and helpful. He let my PT see my x-rays and sit in during my visit. This will help with my healing.
As usual Dr. Ellman answered all my questions - made me feel like I was making great progress and agreed to moving up the timeline for skiing!
Great Doctor who was receptive to my input for my treatment. I am from out of state and he was understanding and agreeable to conservative treatment until I return home, unless my symptoms worsen. Most Doctors want procedures, he wants what is best for his patients and takes the time to listen and make you a part of your treatment. I have been in the healthcare field for 23 years and I am glad to see he is about great patient care, not the bottom line some practices look for at this time. THANKS !!!
I liked him.A down to earth person that makes you feel welcome. I am sure that someday I will see him again.
The only reason for my long wait I got there early . I really was very very satisfied .With the time he spend with patience and answers questions.
Dr. Ellman was perfect. Listened well, took the time to answer all my questions, gave me a clear diagnosis and plan of action, left me feeling that I was in highly capable hands. I could not have been happier with this visit. All doctor appointments should go as smoothly as this one!
Dr. Ellman was very professional, to the point yet compassionate and understanding our our son's needs. He took the time with our special needs son to make him feel part of the treatment program and not just address us as his parents.
The Dr. seemed to know his craft, and explained my condition well. But, it seemed rushed and brief. It was as if he couldn't get out of the room fast enough. I did not get enough time to ask questions. When I did ask questions, his answers were short, leaving me wanting more information.
I'd highly recommend Dr. Ellman. He took the time to listen and diagnose.
Liked him. Knowledgable and pleasant.
Great doctor. Made me feel comfortable and explained my injury in a way I could really understand. Listened to my concerns and came up with a treatment plan that would work for me and my lifestyle.
I was thrilled to get in to see him so quickly. He was kind and knowledgable. I trust that he will take good care of me.
Dr. elman was the best. He spent almost an hour with me and really listened. Which was a big difference from my other appointments. I felt as if he really heard what I was saying and was collaborating with me about the treatment plan. I was ready to get a second opinion until I met Dr. Elman.
Great visit and very helpful in addressing my issue.
He was very thorough and knowledgeable. I feel like he is someone I can trust to treat my issue.
