[...] Dr. Ellen and his assistants listened and gave me information. Other than Dr. [...] who is my primary care physician, I think that Dr. Ellen is the first physician who actually went over my answers on the medical history form and really asked how i was doing. He was kind and I appreciated that.

Came to this clinic because my mother did & was in the same week for the same thing. My issues are the same, which I missed work for & wasn't able to be seen for over a month. Only to be referred to another doctor in the same clinic. Almost another month out -

excellent facility, administrative staff, overall care/advice given, and knowledge of the medical staff; i like how they are all connected - including the records, and timeliness/ease of prescription refills (with web site & messaging)

I always had very good care and he is a very caring Dr. My last visit was for an issue that was really out of his area but no one else would help me find the proper care but he did. I truly appreciate the I had him as my DR.

Dr. Ellen listens to what medical problem to which I am experiencing. He then determines a course of action which I could take to solve my medical problem

my primary care physician. sent a referral to Providence health services. because I was urinating blood and I was given an appointment for 3 months later. my condition got worse so my primary care physician sent an urgent request to Dr. Ellen's office I got no reply even after several phone messages I left. I believe Dr. Ellen is a good doctor but staff does not follow up with referrals sent to there office

Dr Ellen is not a talker. You have to dig to get him to answer questions. He is ALWAYS typing on his computer, no face contact and very little conversation.

I am new to the Providence Team. I am pleased with the network and concern the Team has provided to date. Perhaps I am "spoiled" because prior to his discontinuing practice I had been with my last Doctor more than 25 years.

This was my first visit with Dr. Ellen for a problem/condition I have. He was thorough, professional, very nice and will be running tests to determine the best way to proceed which I sincerely appreciate. I was very comfortable with Dr. Ellen, who was a referral from my gynecologist.

it was difficult to find a urology provider in oly for a 12 year old. i had to do lots of homework and waited a long time for a visit. pediatrician was not even aware of you. found on my own. Waited 45 minutes in the waiting room. MA was not familiar with the practice or basic answers to questions

Spends majority of visit time entering date into the computer. The resulting "take home" documents were routine and of limited value.

My provider was studying what method/medications to prescribe when current practices diminished in effectiveness.

Dr. Ellen is very quiet. it is hard to get information out of him. He seams to know what he is doing but does not give me much feed back.

He asked all of my questions and the office did their best to meet my needs since they had to wait for test results, but I was leaving town the next morning, and the test results needed to be returned for a prescription,

I have had a very difficult time when I call in. The telephone is always busy or there is no answer and no answering machine. It took 3 days to get through to make an appointment.

It is difficult to convey in the written form how well taken care of I felt through out my whole process. The receptionist was professional and yet personable .. making eye contact.. answer any and all questions.. clear and concise. This theme of personable yet professional behavior was carried out with each and every person I had come in contact with.. doctors, nurses staff... It was nice to just be ill and not have to play any games and know the people caring for you would do their best for you. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

The provider is very conscientious in pursuing anything that might be of concern - even if it's just a concern of his.

Have only seen Dr. Ellen twice since he joined Providence, but he's been my urologist for several years. I am very aware that during those last two Providence visits, our mutual exchanges are brief and I am less willing to ask questions, because he is apparently obliged to type info into a computer during 90% of our appointment. I know he is a compassion physician, but I doubt that people I might refer would ever know that. would be able to sense his compassion.

Dr. was told that our pharmacy of choice was in Yelm. He prescribed medication and sent the order to Chehalis causing a two to three day in delay of my being able to take the new stuff.

Moved was not noticed. Changed Phone number. Not called for an appointment that was due in June. Had to find new number and address on the internet to get appointment. Told Doctor was told someone dropped the ball but at least I found the new number to call.

The Nurse should be more specific regarding preparations before a biopsy, they give you a bunch of papers but, some are not easy to understand and when you call the office, they never call back.
