Waited two hours to see the doctor for a simple eye exam. Got home only to realize they misspelled my name on my prescriptions. Dr. Ellant is thorough but this practice needs to be better managed!

I visited this ophthalmologist for an eye exam and new prescription for eyeglasses and contact lenses. I made the mistake of making an appointment toward the end of the day. Fast forward over 2 hours later, the end result was a half completed appointment, and only the exam for eye glasses was completed. I was told that I'd have to go to another physician for the contact lens prescription. Um, what? I thought YOU were a doctor? Are you, perhaps, in a hurry to get home for dinner? Do the job right, or don't do it at all.

Dr. Ellant's care and treatment of each patient is exceptional. He shows you the x-rays taken and explains the difference in laymen terms so you have a better understanding of your eye problems and what can be done to make your eyes better with treatment.

I’ve been seeing Dr Ellant for about 5 years, and it has always been a top grade patient experience. He listens, and explains, in a give and take process. He is thorough, and a great surgeon as well. I can rest, knowing I have Dr Ellant on my health care team.

Yes I would recommend Dr Ellant to my family and friends. I can’t believe how well I can see. After left eye surgery I had my follow up appointment. I was looking at the eye chart and saw everything clear and blue white. I closed my left eye and looked through my right eye. There was a yellowish brownish haze. I couldn’t believe that I had been looking through this haze that had continued to get worse. I have had my right eye surgery, thanks to Dr Ellant i now see the world through new clear eyes. I would tell anyone with cataracts. The surgery is a breeze. Don’t put it off. It’s like a miracle. You can see like a younger you. And definitely make an appointment with Dr Ellant at sight MD.

Love the warm embrace of the office staff and technicians. However, and although Dr. Ellant is considered favorable and straight foreward in his communication with new patients, he needs to work on his Interpersonal skills and not come across as storic and unapproachable.

Dr. Ellant was phenomenal. My visit required a procedure that made me squeamish and he took the time to help me feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible before he started the procedure, which he completed very quickly. One of the best doctors I’ve seen and I would recommend him wholeheartedly.

Dr Ellant himself was fine however his office was extremely unorganized and greatly lacking communication. I was told I would get my contact RX the day after my appt. almost two weeks later, and still no RX! I have called several times and was either sent to voicemail or was told that someone would call me back, which they never did. I would not go back to this office again.
