My Patients


Personal Stories


Sandy After Weight Loss SurgeryI live in Fairbanks, Alaska. Dr Ellner did my surgery 2 years ago. My choice in doctors was definitely the best choice I ever made. I heard so much about Dr. Ellner's bedside manner and her small town approach to patient care. That approach is what locked me in as her patient. I have never had a doctor take so much time and develop such an interest in my health. Today I am half the size I was. I have other family member that I have sent to her and none of us regrets having her as our surgeon. Much success in you journey to a healthier life!

Dr. Ellner is the most one of a kind, personable doctors I have ever come across. She is more patient-centered than any other doctor I have ever worked with or met. Doctor Ellner is "old school" when it comes to bedside manor and genuine concern for those whose care she has been entrusted with. Her passion for her skill is evident to not only those who have had her as a care provider, but also to other doctors, nurses, and medical professionals. I know quite a few of Dr. Ellner's patients and they not only feel they have a doctor for life but also a friend whose interested in their health and well being. To me she is bringing the country doctor feel to a large top notched medical clinic. I am Robert, former Bariatric patient, now skinny!
