Very disappointed that after Dr. Lelli was extremely confident that he could cure my problem with medication he did not "go to bat" for me when the insurance company turned the RX down. This has happened to me with other Doctors and other medications. My other Doctor's have always succeeded in getting the RX pushed though. He DID NOT. So the build up by him was so positive that it made the let down really rough. The office did not help. Was told that they would get back to me but NEVER did.

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.

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.
