Dr. Ellyn has been my ophthalmologist for 30+ years. When I experienced an eye emergency last year, he was kind, thorough, walked me through what was going to happen with the specialist and made sure I knew he was in this with me. A very scary experience was tempered by his unwavering calmness & support even as I transferred to the specialist. When the specialist released me & I returned to Dr. Ellyn, he took the time to go over all my records and explain everything that had happened.

Dr. Ellyn is thorough, amiable and really answers my questions to my satisfaction. My family of three sees him for our eye care and we are all comfortable. We find him professional. He makes you feel at ease as well. Overall, he's a great doctor.
