With a PhD in Immunology, a graduate of the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, and a 24 year career in the Army, Dr. Ellis’ specialty is Hematology and Oncology. His grandmother, a DO, fueled his interest in caring for cancer patients. He approaches the care of his patients with malignant disorders in an integrative way, focusing on the least toxic method of controlling or reversing the condition.

He believes that attention to lifestyle factors such as nutrition, stress, and toxic occupational, personal and environmental exposures are foundational to healing.  He lives the tenants that attention to the three levels of human existence; body, mind, and spirit increase well being. A plant based diet combined with daily exercise and mindfulness practice have enabled him to function in his busy life as a physician, father, and husband.
