Care Philosophy

While medical education and research are very rewarding, my primary focus is to provide thoughtful and compassionate individualized care. I pride myself on being approachable and caring, and do my best to provide understandable explanations to my patients. The patient and physician are a team - working together towards a common goal. I believe in sub-specialized medical care, and for that reason, confine my practice to the eyelids, orbit and lacrimal system.

Where our data comes from - The data you see on providers' Healthgrades profiles comes from both the provider and public sources. The Top Care Areas section uses public data from billing claims that providers submit to insurance companies. That data is filed nationwide on behalf of the provider to either the government or a private health insurance company.

How we evaluate our data - Patient volume is analyzed by provider and compared nationally with all providers who perform the same procedure, or treat the same condition. We organize the volume data in percentile ranking from 'may perform' for the lowest claims volume to 'Very High' for the highest claims volume data. For a given condition or procedure, performance categories are defined based on 80%, 90%, and 95% confidence intervals from the average patient volume for all providers in our database. Providers identified as ‘may perform’ do not have sufficient volume for Healthgrades to create a statistical evaluation.

I saw Dr. Lelli when I was diagnosed with cancer in the inner corner of my eye. He not only has the beautiful bedside manner but has hands of an angel. There is not enough praise I can give this doctor. I have no scar which is a miracle. His sincere kindness and operating brilliance made my surgery a pleasure.
in New York City |
Had surgery performed by this highly qualified doctor to correct an eye issue that was operated on by 3 other surgeons. Dr, Lelli is an excellent and experienced doctor with a great disposition. I highly recommend him.
