Dr. Lars Ellison, urologist at Pen Bay Medical Center for the past five years, is going to be holding office hours at Waldo County General Hospital two to three days a month beginning July 12.

Dr. Ellison said he already sees a number of patients from this area and having office hours at Waldo County will make it easier for them. He said it will also create a closer relationship between Pen Bay and Waldo, which are now both members of MaineHealth.

Dr. Ellison received his medical degree in 1995 from Boston University School of Medicine. He completed both his surgery and urology residencies at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H. and did a fellowship at John Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland.

Dr. Ellison will be in Belfast on Thursdays and he will be seeing patients in Suite 216 on the main floor of 116 Northport Ave., the left section of the hospital.
