Madeline Ellis, MD, FAAP
Madeline Ellis, MD, FAAP

Dr. Madeline Ellis is a Board Certified Pediatrician with years of primary care experience in private practice. She received her MD degree from LSU School of Medicine in New Orleans, and completed her internship and residency at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital through St. Louis University.  She is now the physician owner and operator of Focus-MD Hendersonville, her own specialty clinic to address the unmet needs for ADHD care in her community. 

Over time, she has developed a love and a passion for helping with learning and attention issues; this comes from experience as a clinician but also from knowing what it is like to be in a parent’s shoes. Dr. Ellis was a mother while in college and medical school, married to husband Barry and raising two children together through it all!  She has experienced the process of navigating school systems for resources to assist her children, and she has learned what resources are available in the community.  These opportunities in her own life have provided a strong foundation for the care and support of her patients and their families when they encounter these situations, so she can take them from Frustration to Focus! Dr. Ellis strives to treat the whole child when they are diagnosed with ADHD, not only certain symptoms.  To accomplish this, she works to create an atmosphere of adequate time spent with patients in the clinic and to help facilitate coordination of obtaining therapies and resources close to home.  She will work with your child’s primary care doctor to ensure all healthcare needs are met.
