I had a detached retina, I had had symptoms for a couple weeks and really didn't know what it was.Dr Elshatory's level of compassion, professionalism, and expertise was exceptional. He performed surgery and followed me all the way through the next several weeks. My vision is now better than it has ever been! Thanks to Eye Surgeons Assoc and Dr Elshatory. I would highly recommend them!!! Thanks from the bottom of my heart!! I feel very fortunate to have my eyesight back.

Dr. Elshatory is a very compassionate doctor. He spends time with patients to make sure he has answered any questions and explained each procedure. I have complete confidence in him. I would recommend him to all my family and friends. Injections are completely painless and gentle.

I am 62 and started going to Dr. Elshatory with a problem with my vision. He soon diagnosed macular degeneration with neo vascularization. I started getting injections and my vision has cleared up. The injections aren't bad at all. He is the best. So nice and caring. Always has a smile on his face and speaks perfect English. I would recommend him to anyone.

This Doctor is WONDERFUL. I never felt like he was in a hurry and felt like I never had his full attention .

Dr. Elshatory did a vitrectomy on my right eye. I had no idea how or why this was had happened to me. Dr. Elshatory explained the "how and the why" and answered all my questions and addressed my concerns. He is very professional and caring. His staff members were also very professional and caring.

This is the first time I was totally satisfied with a physician. The office is totally staffed with great people. I had a thorough eye examination by DR's staff prior to seeing him. Dr Elshatory is very thorough and explained everything to me so I understood. He is so knowledgeable in his profession and I felt very good when I left. He even did a scan of my eye so he could compare changes I had been to a Retinal specialist but never was so thoroughly checked. Thank you Dr. Elshatory.
in Blue Grass, IA |
My experience with Dr. Elshatory has been wonderful. He makes you feel at ease and very comfortable. He is very professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone that needed a Vitreoretinal Surgeon.
in Rock Island, IL |
dr elshatory saved my life. after looking at my retina he scheduled me for a carotid Doppler sonogram which showed an 80 plus percent blockage in my left carotid artery. after a head and neck cat scat it showed a 99 percent blockage. well I had surgery and today my retina symptoms were resolved (6 months after the carotid clean out)
in Muscatine, IA |
Dr. Elshatory takes time to explain what he is doing and gives time for the numbing drops to numb the eye. Appointments are made well in advance, and I receive an e-mail and a phone call about a week in advance of the appointment.
in Bettendorf, IA |
Dr. Elshatory is the third Dr. I have seen at Eye Surgeons. Each one was better then their predecessor Dr. Elshatory is by far the best of the three. His eye injections for AMD are TOTALLY painless.There is very little discomfort. He takes the time to answer my questions and explain my condition.
in East Moline, IL |
I highly recommend Dr. Elshatory. I've had to have multiple lucentis injections for wet macular degeneration. As you can imagine having to have an injection diretly into my eye was very stressful to even think about. In the past I have had a different doctor who administered these shots who paled in comparison to Dr. Elshatory, both in technique and demeanor. Dr. Elshatory skill level is so advanced I don't even feel the shots. He is always pleasant and friendly to interact with.
in East Moline, IL |
He is friendly and performs his tasks with ease and a minimum of discomfort.
