A Stress Free Experience


In A Beautifully Customized Office

Once you've weathered the processes of doing the research and you've made the decision to undergo gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, VBloc or banding surgery, or perhaps the non-surgical Orbera Balloon, you deserve a break. We will handle all of the insurance and guide you through the testing. Your arrival in Dr. Ellner's office should allow you to take a deep breath and put the stress behind you. The waiting room embraces you with warm earth tones and the coziness of a living room. All seating is comfortable and roomy and you will find a warm smile greeting you at the reception desk. While you have a minute in the waiting room, please page through the hand-crafted scrapbook of before and after pictures that my patients have created.

 The exam rooms are designed for your comfort and privacy. You are greeted by rich vanilla cream coupled with dusty hues of greens and blues, framed by warm honey toned cabinetry and a personal locker for your clothing. The motorized recliner style exam table is draped with a fresh sheet and a comfy pillow. All exam gowns are constructed with soft cotton and are especially roomy. Many of my patients have commented that until they came to Dr. Ellner's office, they had never put on a gown that was too big! The spacious bathroom is appointed with warm tuscan style flooring and is designed with my patients' unique needs in mind.

Your Job is... To Relax

Our ultimate goal is for you to be escorted through your pre-operative experience, leaving the planning and stress to Dr. Ellner and the clinic staff. You will be directed through the pre-operative day, with the majority of your time spent right in the office. The only other stops are at the hospital and the Pharmacy. 


For Out of Town Visitors

Many patients fly in from great distances to see Dr. Ellner, landing at Lindberg Field and staying at one of our many nearby hotels for the duration of their stay in San Diego. These patients find the drive easy and convenient, as the office is a 10 minute drive from the airport and hotels, some of which provide complimentary shuttle service to the hospital. Dr. Ellner's office is located right next to Alvarado Hospital. Sharp Memorial Hospital and Scripps Memorial Hospital are an easy drive from the office. So, no matter where your surgery is performed, you will find that travel is straightforward.
