Dr R. Ellis came to my rescue, having serious back pain, with consistent electrical shock spasms pain,& my surgery being delayed weeks, I called Dr Ellis to admit me to the hospital. This action got the attention of the surgeon & emergency surgery was scheduled the next day. Dr Ellis is always available

from Laura in KY March 10, 2024 for Robert E. Ellis, MD

Dr. Ellis goes above and beyond EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. He is not only brilliant in being able to diagnose, he listens and HEARS me. He cares. He is compassionate. He knows that healing goes far beyond numbers and a stethoscope. He IS the reason I am able to continue to work and be a contributing member of society. If it weren’t for him, I would likely either have passed away or be on disability.… See more

from Judith in IN February 25, 2024 for Robert E. Ellis, MD

I have been with Dr. Ellis for nearly 20 years now. I believe it's vital to have absolute trust in a primary care doctor. I have that with Dr. Ellis. He listens to me, is never condescending and has always given me plenty of time to explain any complaints, medical or otherwise. In the very rare cases when we have disagreed, he has always listened to my reasoning. I know he'll… See more

I had a suspicious area show up on my lung on an x-ray for something else, so Dr. Ellis sent me to a pulmonologist who discovered a fungal infection. He put me on three different antibiotics for a year. It was a very long year because the medications had side effects but they worked and cured my problem. Without Dr. Ellis’ intervention I would have gone without treatment.

My experience with Dr. Robert E. Ellis goes back many years when he first opened his practice. I had a heart condition at the time. Dr. Ellis sent me to a Cardioligist who determined that I had blockage in my right coronary artery, he put me on medication to open the artery and this worked for quite some time. Dr. Ellis put me on cholesterol medication and he followed up with blood tests… See more

from Gordon in KY March 17, 2020 for Robert E. Ellis, MD

Even though Dr Ellis provides his patients with his personal cellphone number , I have always been reluctant to use it so as not to impose on his private life. However, I recently woke up on a Saturday morning,and was completely deaf in my right ear ! I was really quiet scared,and after much deliberation,decided to call Dr Ellis for advice. He lives about 20 miles or so from his surgery,but… See more

I have been a patient of Bob Ellis since Spring of 1988, which says what an excellent Dr I feel he is !! My mother was in a Nursing Home for 4 years back in the late 1990's if it were not for his phone expertise and knowledge in speaking with the Nursing Home, she would not have lived thru several health crisis, This I continue to be so grateful and appreciate of. He is the most caring,… See more

Dr. Robert Ellis has been a vital factor/physician related to my health care for many years. When I need an appointment, it's always very timely.

from Jan in KY March 12, 2020 for Robert E. Ellis, MD

I recently had a fall on a Saturday afternoon and hurt my right side. I was scheduled to go out of town on Monday and contacted Dr. Ellis Sunday afternoon to explain my situation and hesitancy about going out of town while unsure of my status. We discussed the possible problems and treatment indicated. He gave me the option of reporting to the ER or contacting him the next day with an update… See more

from Jim in KY March 11, 2020 for Robert E. Ellis, MD

Dr. ELLIS has used all three in treating me for the past 25 years. If I needed to see a specialist, he set the appointment and off I went. That’s the reason I’m “still above ground “. Dr. ELLIS never left a stone unturned. Long live Dr. ELLIS; I need you!
