Dr. Ellis is one of the most recognized and respected non-surgical esthetic physicians in the Bay Area. It was by pure chance when he met a successful fellow medspa anesthesiologist from Arizona who pointed out that anesthesiologists were uniquely qualified and skilled at site specific injections. As many of today’s physicians are broadening the scope of their practices, Dr. Ellis’ successful evolution into esthetics was uniformly encouraged by his growing patient population who quickly recognized his skill and more importantly his artistry.
In addition to being a well-respected esthetic physician in San Francisco, Dr. Ellis is a board-certified anesthesiologist in the state of California who practices at the San Francisco Surgery Center. Previous to this, he was the Director of Anesthesia at Webster Surgery Center in Oakland, a leading outpatient surgical facility in the Bay Area specializing in cosmetic and orthopedic surgery. Dr. Ellis was also the Director of Cardiac Anesthesia at Alta Bates Medical Center in Berkeley. As a resident at Stanford University Medical Center, he was voted Outstanding Resident of the 1997 graduating class and received the Outstanding Teacher Award as voted by Stanford medical students. He received his medical degree from the University of Michigan.
