Dr Ellis and his staff are great. They are very professional and courteous. My wife and I both had sinuplasty procedures and are doing well. Follow up is great as well

I trust Dr. Ellis completely. He is honest and does not try to scare you or coddle you either. His bedside manner is comforting because you know he will only tell you truth. He has never forgotten anything about me and my families procedures and care. He is always open and available for questions, seeing them as a good indicator of your involvement and understanding of your condition and the care you will recieve. Dr. Ellis actually, literally, saved my life AND the lives of my HUSBAND, one of my DAUGHTERS and one of my SONS too. He took on 4 very different and very complicated patients and procedures. 1. About the largest and decaying tonsils and adnoids he'd every seen(nearly septic) 2. The largest tonsils/adnoids cutting off air in a child that were healthy but still growing. 3.The discovery of deadly high BP during radical sinus/ rhinoplasty(now safely controlled) 4.A 90% thyroidectomy for an enormous substernal thyroid that pushed against the heart and lungs slowly suffocating me.(Now on no meds, all good, because Dr. Ellis preserved some of my normal thyroid )

Dr. Ellis is by far the BEST ENT!! I had sinus surgery two years ago which was the best decision I’ve ever made. I no longer have headaches, sinus issues and I can finally sleep and breathe! It has really changed my life! Dr. Ellis and his staff are so kind and caring. Every time I go in for an appointment I feel very welcomed and taken great care of. I could easily visit an ENT where I live, but I’d rather travel 50 minutes to see the BEST! Thank you all for taking great care of me! Your hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed.

I love Dr. Ellis. He treats you like a human being not just somebody he has to deal with. Very down to earth. Easy to talk to. Gladly answers questions and makes sure you are comfortable with his treatment decisions. Whole staff is just the same way. Have told many people they need to go see them and will continue to praise this office!


Had sinus surgery in March! Best decision I ever made. Dr. Ellis and his staff were great and very helpful!

I highly recommend Dr. Ellis and the MAENTA team. I went to numerous ENT'S over many years with no help, even had surgery with no help. Until I finally found Dr. Ellis. He did surgery and I have great relief finally. He is compassionate like Doctors used to be. We definitely need more like him.

I have been going to Mt Airy ENT & ALLERGY and Dr. Ellis for over a year now and just recently had surgery for my sinus and septum, before this over the past 10 years I've been to numerous ENT Doctors with little to no help and even one other surgery in the past, also not much empathy and beside manners from the others. Dr. Ellis is so good about all this. I highly recommend him! You will not be sorry!

Dr. Ellis is by far the best. I have seen many specialists over the years with my issues even had surgery and received very little help, until I begin to see him over a year ago. He has helped me a great deal, and is so kind has wonderful bedside manners, which makes all the difference. I would very much highly recommend him to anyone having trouble. The office staff is also very good!

After years of hearing loss and several doctors not able to help me, I saw Dr. Ellis and he did surgery to help improve my hearing. I saw him today for my postop. My hearing is improving and I'm very happy. Thank you so much Dr. Ellis for helping me

"Dr. Ellis, I want to thank you so much. She’s been doing so much better since you’ve taken over her ENT care than she was doing when she was going to Hickory.”

My experience with Brian Moffitt was absolutely fantastic.  When I first came to Brian’s office, I had a preconceived notion about hearing aids…that they weren’t natural sounding, were uncomfortable, and that I wouldn’t be able to use them while playing live music.  I was dead set against them, and had been struggling for years in my workplace, and with my friends to try to hear in normal conversations.  Brian tested me and found I had 40% hearing loss.  We discussed at length the best options he felt for me in regarding comfort, styling and pricing, and made every effort to assist me in picking out what was best for me.  He listened intently to all my concerns and addressed them one at a time.  He always followed up on the next visit to see how the adjustments were working for me, making sure we were utilizing everything at his disposal to make me comfortable with my new aids.

Now, I am the poster child for hearing aids, as they have changed my life.  My life has gone from black and white to color now, and I could not live without them.  I have Brian to thank for it.  I highly recommend him to everyone.
Thank You, D.B


“Dear Dr. Ellis, just a note to say thank you so much for going out of your way last weekend. You met me at your office about 1:00am. I appreciate your obvious concern for my well being.”
Sincerely, K.A.


“I first went to him [Dr. Moffitt] for a test. When the test was completed it was found I needed hearing aids. He recommended a set and fitted me for them. After discovering additional needs he continued to work with me till we found a system that works well with my needs. He has worked diligently to continue to make sure my needs are met. I am proud to recommend him.”


“Dr. Ellis, thank you for your care that is wonderful. Thank you for helping me in the worst physical time of my life, but most of all thank you for praying for me. It was so great to see a doctor who prays. It impacted my life.”
Thank you so much! T.G.


Good Experience. Main thing: I can hear much better.


“I have the pleasure over the last year to be a patient of Dr. Ellis. I want to let you all know that his staff and he are jewels! Dr. Ellis completed two surgeries for me this year on my ears. I am glad to say that as a result of those surgeries, I am no longer a candidate for a hearing aid! Dr. Ellis has really been helpful to me! He has a great bedside manner. Moreover, he explained my condition and treatment in terms that made sense to me. I also cannot say enough nice things about the staff at the office. Everyone is so kind and will assist you anyway they can.”
Sincerely, K.C.


“I believe Brian’s primary concern is making sure your hearing is the ‘best it can be’.  He goes the extra mile in working with you to reach that goal.  If you encounter problems, Brian schedules an appointment quickly so that the problem can be dealt with.  He also does an excellent job of following up and monitoring changes to make sure your hearing stays at the ‘best it can be’ level.  I have recommended Brian to others and will continue to do so.”


“Dear Dr. Ellis and Staff, I would like to tell you how much I appreciate you all. You have all been so wonderful, my prayer was answered. I truly believe God sent you my way and I am thankful. I am doing well, no sinus infections so far. You have all been great. May God bless each and every one of you. You all make the patient seem like they are special and the top priority.”
Thank you so much. B.P.


Dr. Ellis and Dr. Moffitt are two of the finest Dr’s in Wilkes County. Every patient is treated with respect and care while in the office and at home. Dr Ellis gives his cell phone # to every pt so if they have questions and concerns at home they can get in touch with him directly. His staff are also very nice. Dr. Ellis has a lot of experience in the ENT business and sometimes things happen that are out of his control just like with any other Dr. He is very compassionate about what he does and really cares about the patient. Dr. Moffitt the Audiologist is Fantastic he loves his patients and takes really good care of them. I would take my whole family here without any hesitation. I think we are lucky in Wilkes to have these providers.


Dr. Ellis did a great job for my little girl when she got ear problems. Dr. Moffitt helped my grandfather with hearing aides. So I can confidently tell you that Dr. Ellis is a good doctor.

As an operating room nurse who’s worked on a day to day basis with Dr. Ellis and other surgeons for many years I can offer a first-hand perspective on his patient care and surgery. Also, have worked in other operating rooms at major medical centers in North Carolina and assisted other ENT surgeons many, many times. Dr. Ellis is hands-down, by far, the best, kindest, and technically most proficient and experienced ENT surgeon I’ve ever worked with. Many of the hospital nurses, nurses here in the OR, administrators, board members, and community physicians use Dr. Ellis for their care and the care for their children and families. I’ve seen anesthesiologists from Boone, and physicians and PAs from Winston, Elkin, Raleigh, here, even New York bring their families to have surgery by Dr. Ellis at Wilkes Regional Medical Center. Those are professionals who know a lot about what they do and know how to choose.

“Spoke with patient’s sister today following patient’s thyroplasty. I could hear him talking in the background and his voice is much improved. Barbara states she’s amazed how his voice sounds after the procedure Dr. Ellis did today.  First time he’s been able to talk like that since losing his voice many months ago. Barbara also stated she is very grateful for the hospitality shown to her and her brother today. She also states Dr. Ellis was very personable and a very nice fellow“.
