Ratings for Dr. Jeffrey G. Ellington
Staff great. Office clean. Dr. E was a great pediatrician in my opinion, but completely clueless in hormone imbalances/ thyroid disfunction causing weight gain, mood swings, insomnia, etc. He told me to get off the internet, that people like me were putting Dr's like him out of business. Called the bio identical saliva testing "snake oil and smoke and mirrors".. when I suggested I could have a hormone imbalance, he leaned across the exam table and laughed in my face. I was completely distraught. Found a doc who did test my saliva and what do you know? Progesterone deficiency and my new internist saw my thyroid as almost dead. 3 months later, down 30 lbs and almost all symptoms are gone, all from a little progesterone cream each month. Synthroid is managing my thyroid fine, docs are working together and ive never felt better. Sad because he was a great doc to our kids. Funny and witty. But insensitive and clueless to hormone imbalances and all the havoc they wreak.
Dr E and his staff are very friendly and prompt. No problems getting a return call (even if in the middle of the night) or getting in the same or next day. Love Rosie. He is very grounded and down to earth. He is very anti meds though which is cool sometimes and other times can rub you the wrong way FAST. Office is clean and we are in and out quickly. My kids love him, we've used him for years. As for woman issues, we are too comfortable with him in that aspect and I have my annual stuff done on base, haha. Seriously though, we trust him and his staff 100%.
My kids and I love Dr. E!!! The girls look forward to seeing Rosie the dog and everyone in the office is wonderful. The staff is all very friendly and knows my by my first name, even when I have come in randomly to drop off paperwork. When we leave the area, I will miss everyone and can only hope to find someone half as good when we get to our next base...hopefully I can stay out of the military clinic again.
Dr. Ellingotn and his staff are extremely helpful. I love his dog in the office and that they are so family friendly. Dr. Ellington is a doctor who will tell you the truth about what's going on medically and will not sugar coat if you need to change habits. I would highly recommend him and his staff.
Dr. E is excellent. I would and have recommended this Dr. to several people. Where Fam Practice Docs are becoming few & far between and/or not accepting insurances, it is really hard to find a good caring doctor. I've been seeing Dr. E for several years & the most I have ever waited was 15 minutes MAX, very punctual. He is caring, so are his staff. My son loves seeing his staff and the dog is such a treat for kids (and Moms) when you aren't feeling 100%. His is very helpful and has good knowledge, also explains things in detail.
I love going to this office, if I have a problem they see me same day and I've never had a bad experience. The staff is super friendly and I like the fact that he brings his dog with him, she's the sweetest thing and my little girl loves to see her. Dr. Ellington is also available at anytime, and will definately be the first to give you an after hours phone# to call if something happens. I like that he doesn't try to cover your symtoms with medication and he is very personal. Great doctor.
Alot of miscommunication in this office. Also, the doctor is extreme in his few of medicine. Including fields that are not his speciallty. Told to stop asthma medicines and not to take any of them and caused major complications. He also tried to take my older child off medication without weaning her. When I asked him if that was safe he said probably not and said I was right she should be weaned off.
