Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lelli Jr "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."

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...more
