"Twice now I feel that I was treated with respect and that Dr. Ellsworth conducted a through review, and exam. When he explains what is going on, he does so in a manner that one can understand. He will make recommendation and let you decide just how far you want to go with it. Hopefully my issue resolves, but if a different one arises, I'll definitely see Dr. Ellsworth"

"I suffered a rare injury, complete pectoralis major tear (from bone), this last May and Dr. Ellsworth performed the surgery which placed an anchor on my humerus and reattached the tendon to the anchor. Not only did he do a fantastic job with the procedure, which left me with a clean minimal scar, he also understood the urgency of doing the operation as those suffering this injury should have reattachment within two weeks of the initial injury."
