I have so much confidence in Dr Ellis. I have multiple sites that need monitoring. He never rushes my visits. Could not recommend more.

He looked me over for basal cells and pointed our the few that needed treatment. He also mentioned that he is trying to test a few other medications to make treatment faster and easier.

I'm very pleased with the level of care provided by Dr. Ellis. I could see a dermatologist about 5 minutes from my house, but choose to drive an hour to see Dr. Ellis because I know he is thorough, professional, and competent.
