"I have seen Dr. Ellis for more than ten years now, and he has always had my health and longevity as the primary focus of his care for me. He recently provided me with books to read to help me with my recovery from an injury and my desire to lose weight I have gained from inactivity due to the injury. This is exactly what a physician who is looking out for your well being should go. I highly recommend Dr. Ellis to anyone who wants a physician who is committed to their patients health and long term life goals."

"Staff are outstanding. I was taken into my appointment on time, and the person taking my vitals was extremely personable and professional. After completing her work, it was only a few minutes until Dr. Ellis came in for his portion of the office visit. He is an excellent doc, and makes you feel comfortable about the procedure. He is super knowledgeable, and I would recommend him in a heartbeat!!!"

"The staff were friendly and helpful when I arrived. They took me back about on time and the doctor met with me shortly after that, so I give them an A for punctuality (a rarity these days with doctors). I was there to schedule a colonoscopy, but when he reviewed my medical history he saw that I have reflux and also recommended an upper endoscopy. I've wondered for a long time if my reflux might be causing problems in my esophagus, so I was relieved and appreciative when he recommended that be checked. He answered all of my questions with a pleasant demeanor. I didn't feel rushed to let him go, but he also didn't waste much time on idle chit chat, something I'm sure his subsequent patients appreciated. This will be my third colonoscopy with Dr. Ellis, the first two went well, fingers crossed this one does as well. All things considered, I highly recommend Dr. Ellis and his staff."

"I have been a patient of Dr. Ellis since 2009. He is by and far one of the best doctors I’ve dealt with. He is thorough, proactive, kind, compassionate but won’t sugarcoat any diagnosis. My case is extremely complicated and he has stood by me through every hurdle. He has been instrumental in keeping me motivated, positive and healthy. There are no words to express how grateful I am for everything he and the staff at Austin Gastro have done for me. I am not exaggerating when I say that I would be here were it not for his care and dedication. Thank you Dr. Ellis!"

"Even though it would appear Dr Ellis has way too many patients to oversee and that he is too busy, and I have even told him that. He takes his time with you when you're in front of him and he is very thorough and professional. He will take as much time as necessary with each patient and be very proactive as far as getting things checked out and straightened out. I like Dr Ellis ...... He's tops"

"I have been seeing Dr Kenneth Ellis since 2009. I moved to San Antonio for 1 year and still drove to Austin to see him. He is one of my favorite Doctors. I believe he is the best GI Dr on the planet. He and his staff always go beyond the call of duty. I believe he treats all his patients the same way. If there is anyone out there needing a good GI Dr look no further. He and his staff are great."

"Absolutely love Dr. Ellis! I've been his patient for a long time, though it's been a few years between visits. I recently had a telehealth appointment and he was as warm, thorough, and sharp as ever! At one point, I switched to see another GI when he was busy and I wanted to get in fast, and wow the difference was big! Ran straight back to Dr. Ellis and don't plan on leaving."

"Dr. Ellis is an incredible doctor. My Mother passed away from colon cancer 16 years ago and I have been terrified of colonoscopies and doctors ever since. I also have had a series of alarming symptoms, at least to me for the past five years but never worked up the courage to get an endoscopy. I had the blessing of being paired up with Dr. Ellis as my doctor two years ago when I was trying to get some digestive issues addressed; and went to Austin Gastroenterology. He is witty, has a great sense of humor, and will immediately put you at ease. Most importantly, he cares about his patients. I felt comfortable with him as my Dr. right off the bat and the most amazing thing is despite the fact I repeatedly canceled my colonoscopy tons of times due to fear; it was ultimately his confidence in his diagnosis of me from our first meeting, and how comfortable he made me about a procedure I was terrified about to finally get me to go for my colonoscopy two days ago. After two years of delaying, everything he told me in our first meeting about what his impression of what was causing my symptoms was true. I didn't have polyps, and he was so knowledgeable he was able to diagnose me just by our first conversation two years ago. Anyone who needs a colonoscopy or endoscopy please see Dr. Ellis. He is one of the best doctors I have encountered and am grateful to God that he was able to treat me plus empower me to finally get a colonoscopy. Thank you Austin Gastroenterology for helping me take my life back. You guys are amazing... and thank you once again Dr. Ellis for being such an amazing doctor."

"I adore Dr. Ellis and his assistant Stephanie! They were SO nice and went out of their way to get my meds ordered and even delivered! He also did my colonoscopy. I know that no one wants that test, but you're going to have to get it, so choose Dr. Ken Ellis! They have an awesome patient portal where your messages are answered the very same day! (Kudos Stephanie). Thank you both for a refreshing experience; not a lot of doctors do that these days! Mary "Jean" Scheid!"
