I've been a consistent patient of the S.Jordan U of U Clinic for about 8 years, since they were housed in a few white trailers a few years before the new clinic was built. Dr. Ely, who I had never met before, was a very pleasant and knowledgeable physician.

January 12, 2017

Dr. Ely is fantastic. I came in as an urgent patient visit but will definitely be establishing care with him. He is personable and caring.

January 11, 2017

Ely is wonderful!

January 07, 2017

They need to clone Dr. Ely one hundred times. He is one of the nicest and friendliest doctors I have ever met. He has the greatest personality and is very easy to get to know. He spends whatever time you need and makes you feel very comfortable in his presence. HE IS THE BEST!!!!

January 04, 2017

I have had more than my share of Doctors and Dr. Ely is by far the best Doctor I have had. I will not go to another provider with out going to him first.

December 09, 2016

Dr. Ely was fantastic, he was friendly, personable, professional, and showed that he cares about his patients.

December 02, 2016

Dr. Ely was great!! He was able to answer all of my questions in a way that I would understand. He went above and beyond. When I had waited quite a while for a nurse to come back in to take blood he took responsibility for the mistake of not letting them know I was ready. Outstanding care provided.

November 03, 2016

Dr. Ely is super kind. Seems like an all around great guy. I would definitely refer others to him.

November 02, 2016

I've always had a great experience with Dr Ely. Friendly, compassionate and takes time with me to address all my concerns

October 23, 2016

I would highly recommend Dr. Brian Ely. He is upbeat; knowledgeable in some specialty care, even though he is currently a family doctor, and overall leaves a very good impression.

September 26, 2016

Dr. Ely is superb.

September 25, 2016

Dr. Ely is very friendly and helpful. He knew and understood what I was feeling and what I needed to get relief quickly as my pain was quite miserable. He was quick and thorough but didnt make me feel as if he was in a rush even though he fit me into his schedule.

September 23, 2016

I love Dr. Ely, he never makes me feel rushed and he rules out everything before jumping to one diagnosis. He actually listens and considers what I have to say.

September 20, 2016


September 07, 2016

Dr. Ely is great. REally I've never had a physician because they seem to bounce around and I've had no loyalty, but I'm really hoping he sticks around for many years, because I'd like to keep going back to see him.

August 30, 2016

Dr. Ely is great!

August 28, 2016

Dr. Ely really listens he took my issue seriously. In the past other providers for years had disregarded it as "normal aging" but it isn't. I'm one of the few patients that NEED salt in my diet. Thanks so much for having such a caring provider on your staff.

August 19, 2016

For a first visit, I was not very impressed. Perhaps he was running late?

August 14, 2016

he was excellent

August 07, 2016

too many questions

July 04, 2016

Always have a positive experience

June 28, 2016

#9. I don't like being touched by people I don't know, especially when in confined spaces. This is a personal issue and not the doctor's. Since this was my first visit to Dr. Ely since my insurance changed, it's going to be a major readjustment for me. It's not his fault.

June 20, 2016

Dr Ely is great, he is the reason I keep returning to this hospital.

May 21, 2016

Seriously considering my issues i was having medically everyone that was amazing.

May 02, 2016

This was my first visit with Dr. Ely and he was great. I decided to have him as my Primary Care Physician

May 01, 2016

Had a really good experience. Definite relief of symptoms.

April 24, 2016

Dr. Ely is amazing! even though he was very busy and running behind that day, he still took the time to listen to my concerns and answer my questions. He even took the time and showed concern in asking about a previous concern we had. He is very professional but is also willing to listen.

April 22, 2016

care provider was great. I selected to have him as my primary Doctor

April 18, 2016

Great physician, plan on making him our primary.

April 16, 2016

Dr. Ely is AMAZING! He never makes me feel rushed, he takes as much time as is necessary to answer all of my questions. He is incredible with my children and always takes the time to engage with them and make them feel comfortable. I feel as though Dr. Ely is truly concerned about our well being.

April 14, 2016

Dr . Ely is nice and my family loves going through him. This was my first time visiting him and it seemed he was rushed throughout the time I spent with him. He spent 5 minutes with me and put me on a medicine I had taken in the past that helped with my depression which isn't a big issue for me at this time. I called him back after discussing the prescription and they said he'd call me within 3 days and I got a call 8 days later from a lady that wasn't anybody I had spoken to in the clinic.

March 29, 2016

I was planning on attempting to reconnect with my old DR, however I am happy with Dr Ely and will most likely visit him again

March 25, 2016

I really appreciated Dr Ely taking my concerns serious, trying to rule out things and get to the root of the problem. THANK YOU

March 25, 2016

Dr Ely is great.

March 21, 2016

I really like Dr. Ely and his nurse but I really do not like the call in service. They are very nice but if I have a medical question I want to talk to a nurse not a call center person!

March 16, 2016

First time impressions of Dr Ely were wonderful, he seemed nice and genuinely concerned.

March 06, 2016

I have never been happier with a health care provider. Dr. Ely's bedside manner is professional and caring.

February 29, 2016

Came away with no explanation as to what my problem was or anything I might try to address issue.

January 31, 2016

Great doctor who cares

January 24, 2016

Very Impressed with Dr Ely

January 16, 2016

Very good experience. Good interaction with Dr. I have confidence in his ability.

January 12, 2016

Dr. Ely has been awesome! He is one of those doctors you don't want to leave because he provides such good care. He is a 1 in a million kind of doctor and I am very glad to have him be the care provider for our entire family.

January 07, 2016

Dr. Ely has always given our family great service.

November 29, 2015

I was referred for physical therapy and I think the patient should be asked if they have a specialist in mind rather than just assuming they want to go to the in-house facility. Same goes for pharmacy. Don't just assume I want to use your pharmacy. Ask me if I have a pharmacy that I already use. Other than that... my experience was fabulous and I will continue to see dr. Ely. He was great.

November 17, 2015

I came in with sciatica and was asking for a referral to physical therapy. I did not once ask for any narcotics, nor did I want any. He made it very clear to me that he would not give me narcotics, and he completely ignored my request for Physical Therapy. He told me that I would have this pain for the rest of my life and there was nothing I could do about it and sent me packing with a prescription for an NSAID, which I had told him I was already taking. He didn't listen to anything I said, nor did he do anything to treat my condition.

October 21, 2015

Dr. Ely is a wonderful provider.

October 20, 2015

Been looking for a Dr like dr Ely for several years. He is very genuine and seems like he's honest and generally concerned. I've already recommended him to several close friends.

October 18, 2015

Dr Ely was very friendly and professional.

October 14, 2015

Overall, "the experience" of the visit in all regards, people/place/process were excellent. I got a bit lost due to the paperless environment and not being familiar with the facility, but all staff that I encountered were really exceptional.

October 03, 2015

Dr. Ely has funny comments that help break the ice. He is a friendly, caring Doctor!

October 03, 2015

Dr Ely and his staff are great. "Thumbs Up !!"

September 21, 2015

He did a great job & I really liked him. Sorry I'm bad with names and forgot his.

September 07, 2015

Good experience, but Dr. Ely seemed to be rushed as I was trying to explain some of my medical problems to him. I asked if I could establish care from him to be my Primary Care Doctor, but he said that I had a lot of complicated medical problems, and didn't know whether he could help me with them, and was in a hurry and left. He did help me with one of my issues, and examined me, and gave me a referral but after that, seemed to be in a hurry, so I couldn't really address the other issues I had.

August 25, 2015

Dr. Ely is friendly and interactive.

August 24, 2015


August 22, 2015

Dr. Ely took the time to listen and to explain. He was also personable and friendly. We did not sense an attitude of superiority from him that many doctors seem to possess.

August 18, 2015

I've already recommended Dr. Ely to my parents whose primary care physician passed away.

August 16, 2015

Great Services

August 14, 2015

Dr. Ely is very friendly, personable and his bedside manner is GREAT! I feel very comfortable with him. He is one of the best doctors I have ever been to. Thank you, Dr. Ely. I appreciate you very much!

July 31, 2015

Excellent Dr. Very caring and knowledgeable.

July 20, 2015

I have already recommended Doctor Ely to my friends and family and to people I know that is looking for a new Doctor.

July 18, 2015

Dr. Ely was great, I will be using him as my family Dr.

July 09, 2015

Dr. Ely was great. He took time with me to explain what options I have for treatment, pros, cons of each, and I never felt like he was rushed or needed to get to his next appointment before he had taken care of me. He showed concern for the issues I presented him with and helped me to understand what treatments he recommended and why. He listened to what I had to say and I felt that he considered my opinions in his recommendations. I really liked Dr. Ely and think I've found my new doctor!

June 24, 2015

First time visit so referrals would be down the road

June 15, 2015

very informative

June 10, 2015

Dr. Ely is always so considerate and I had extra questions and he came back in to answer them as my mom had more questions too.

May 04, 2015

Dr Ely is great, I would (and will) recommend him to anyone seeking medical care.

May 02, 2015

Was very lmpressed with Dr. Ely

May 02, 2015

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Ely.

May 01, 2015

very early yet but so far impressed!

April 30, 2015

Dr. Ely seemed concerned for my issues. This was to establish a Family Practice provider to monitor/manage me. He was knowledgeable and was very communicative with me.

April 28, 2015

Both doctors I saw in the past few days ( Dr. Ely and Dr. McGee y were very friendly, very knowledgable and put me at ease. I felt like I was empowered and educated regarding my health. I would highly recommend both doctors.

April 14, 2015

I will not go back to doctor Ely. He was very rude to my wife and I. And didn't listen to anything we had to say and told me he didn't care about my pain in my back And wasn't concerned about,it. He was not helpful and I will,not be going back to him. He seemed like he had something else better to do and wanted to push us out. We came out of that appointment with nothing. Ended up going to the hospital later that night where I was told I needed an mri and needed to make an appointment with a neurologist because of my mri result where doctor Ely didn't care.

April 06, 2015

it was my first time meeting thisprovider and I was impressed with the level of care and respect he provided me

April 06, 2015

Dr Ely did a great job, this was my first visit with him and he was very professional and friendly.

March 28, 2015

Dr. Ely was great. He listened to me, and took my opinions and preferences into account when WE came up with a care plan. He gave me advice that maybe wasn't what I wanted to hear, but we important for me to hear.

March 21, 2015

I've already recommending Dr Ely. He is rare. I greatly appreciate him and his thoughtfulness. He will spend all the time needed to make sure my questions are answered, and that any avenue we need to take is explored. Great Doctor and an excellent representative for your hospital.

March 11, 2015

Dr. Ely was extremely nice and seemed to care about helping me. He is running a number of lab tests to help me get to the cause of my problems. He spent considerably longer with me than the allotted time, to make sure we could discuss my concerns. It was a great experience!

March 05, 2015

I like my doctor. He listens to me, and I feel like he actually cares. No problem here.

March 02, 2015

Dr. Ely was very friendly and professional. He took the time to get to know me and why I was in today. I felt he spent a good amount of time with me and spoke in words I could easily understand.

February 23, 2015

Dr Ely is an excellent physician! He listens, addresses my concerns with respect and discusses treatment options with me. I feel very confident that I am receiving good care!

February 16, 2015

Dr Ely is a wonderful doctor. He is so knowledgable and friendly. I would recommend him to everyone!

January 28, 2015

I thought it was so awesome that Dr Ely asked if I would like to see what my sons ear infection looked like! 2 thumbs up

January 12, 2015

Dr. Ely was great. I haven't seen a doctor who cares and is concerned as much as Dr. Ely in such a long time. I have already recommended Dr. Ely to others. He's not just a good doctor but he is a very good listener as well as a good communicator.

January 06, 2015

have already suggested Dr. Ely to my son.

December 23, 2014

The doctor I saw at this visit was probably the best that I have seen. He was patient, friendly, and made me feel that he genuinely cared about helping me.

December 19, 2014

The provider only validated what I already knew and didn't address the symptoms I went in to have addressed. I feel that I gained nothing but a bill from this visit.

December 16, 2014

I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Ely to my friends and family.

November 14, 2014

I went in for suspected ring worm and the skin was never tested. I told him my family has very long history of eczema, but he didn't seem to take that in. He treated me for ring worm and said if it doesn't work, go buy the stuff over the counter and treat for eczema. seemed like a big waste of a co-pay.

October 20, 2014

thanks for taking the time, and not rushing me through.

October 16, 2014

I would recommend Dr. Ely to anyone.

September 19, 2014

He was awesome and funny.

September 16, 2014

Dr. Ely goes out of his way to make sure all my concerns are taken care of at my visit. He uses his time wisely to make sure he can cover everything we can in the visit. I appreciate the effort he puts in to make sure my needs are being met.

September 16, 2014

I had a brace from when I injured this ankle several years ago. Doctor and his staff looked at it and showed me how to use it correctly. Saving my a bunch of time and headache in getting a new device.

September 12, 2014

Dr. Eli is a smart, kind and trustworthy provider!

August 20, 2014

Dr. Ely took the time to get to know me. You could tell he really cared about providing me with good care.

August 13, 2014

Dr. Ealy was wonderful, he gave me advice that worked and the hand is getting better.

August 05, 2014

I really liked that he explained that the particular medication he prescribed was sometimes very expensive, so if my insurance didn't cover it, he could change it. Other doctors have not done this, which results in LONG wait times at the pharmacy. I was able to pre-empt any problems.

July 18, 2014

Outstanding!!! Best doctor visit I have ever had!!!

July 13, 2014

He was very kind and patient. He listened to my concern and addressed it quickly and efficiently.

July 11, 2014

I was a little worried about switching PCP's and I did not know him very well before this appt, but he was very nice and understanding.

July 07, 2014

My Dr was not available so I saw Dr Eli and was very pleased.

July 05, 2014

I was very comfortable with Dr. Ely. He didn't seem rushed, listened intently, and elicited questions. I also felt that he has a good medical background, giving me confidence in returning as needed. I really appreciated having x-ray results on My Chart withing 4 hours of the visit.

July 01, 2014

He was very friendly, put me at ease, and answered all my questions.

June 25, 2014

Dr Brain Ely is great at communicating with me on my care and is concerned about the care he provides. He is by far the best Doctor I have worked with and I highly recommend as a care provider.

June 19, 2014

Dr. Ely is excellent. Very knowledgable and caring

June 13, 2014

Good experience overall.

May 28, 2014

First time seeing DR. Ely, he was fantastic. He responded with concern and assisted me in identifying my problem and did not order unnecessary tests but ordered the correct one to identify I needed to have my gall bladder out. He also was very responsive to one chart messages when I sent them and got me in quickly with the surgical team and even expedidited the process due to my comfort changing. He is excellent!

May 27, 2014

Great service.

May 16, 2014

Dr. Ely was very good. I couldn't have asked for better care. he took the time to listen to me, asked many probing questions, gave great advice and really took overall excellent care of me. very happy and fortunate to have found him.

May 08, 2014

It was great meeting Dr. Ely, he was very personable and helpful with my concerns.

April 18, 2014

I would recommend Dr. Ely to everyone I know. He was very friendly, confident and professional, a package deal.

April 07, 2014

Dr. Ely is my hero! He got me in right when I needed to be seen. The visit was both efficient and effective. My strep throat started to go away just because it feared him when he entered the room. I actually think he might have super powers!!

March 13, 2014

I have my master's degree with extensive study in anatomy and kinesiology, and the doctor spoke to me like a child. Otherwise, he was excellent. He left final decisions about my care up to me.

January 17, 2014

Love Dr. Ely he is awesome

January 12, 2014

This was my first visit to this care provider, so I wouldn't recommend him yet, but maybe after subsequent visits.

January 09, 2014

I recommended Dr. Ely to my wife to be our family doc.

December 30, 2013

he was very friendly, but did not seem concerned about my input about my (repetitive since I was small) illness. he was very set on his unconfirmed diagnosis, and not interested in my knowledge of my own body. my pcp was on vacation at this time so I told the scheduler I would see anyone available.

December 14, 2013

Very impressed.

November 25, 2013

Dr Ely was very friendly & honest.

November 22, 2013

the actual dr i saw was very good, he didnt know much about my problem but really listened to see if he could do anything for me and really wanted to help which i appreciated greatly. he actually was the fresh pair of eyes that was needed and explained to me something i probably had been missing and gave me the choice of how i wanted to proceed which i very much appreciated. it was because of him and him only that i would rate this visit as any kind of success at first it seemed like a gigantic waste of money but after id had time to calm down about the experience as a whole i realized there was certainly some merit to what he had said and actually tried what he had sugested and its helped so aside from the know it all seeing him was definitely worth it now i have a better idea how to proceed with this and hopefully get a handle on what is going on.

November 05, 2013

I got a very prompt response when I used My Chart with this provider. I appreciated his concern for me and my issues.

October 17, 2013

Dr Ely is awesome! He is a great physician
