Patient Comments (1)
in Oakley, CA |
The worst experience with any doctor I've ever had. After referrals to a retina specialist and Stanford's eye care, all he did when we last met was to repeat what I said: "My eye is a little better, but I still have problems" He said: " Your eye is a little better, but you still have problems". Stanford suggested my heart was to blame, but it wasn't. He neglected to read that part of the report. Turns out my optometrist diagnosed it!!! No recommendation for Ellison for me!
