      My husband and I brought our 3 year old in for surgery with Dr. Ellison yesterday. He took the time to speak with us during initial consultation and prior to surgery. He respectfully and articulatly answered all our questions. The surgery went well and is healing nicely. I was pleasantly surprised at how the wounds look, not even a full 24 hours later. We appreciated the post surgical visit and his meticulous attention to our son. The entire staff was amazing. Surgery is never something to hope for, but it is certainly a relief to know such quality staff are available should the need arise.
