Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Petrilla "Dr. Ellen Petrilla graduated from Ohio University with undergraduate degrees in psychology and biology. She then went onto pursue her optometry degree at the University of Houston. During optometry school, Dr. Petrilla worked for a neuro-ophthalmology practice, where she assisted in the diagnosis and treatment of many neuropathies, such as optic neuritis and temporal arteritis. Her patient care experiences at this neuro-ophthalmology clinic led to an article published in the Review of Optometry about Horner s syndrome. In addition, Dr. Petrilla did an internship at Queen Victoria Hospital in England. During her rotation, she assisted in the pre and postoperative care of corneal transplant patients, and had the opportunity to treat other corneal anomalies. Her training in England allowed her a chance to travel to different countries, such as France, Holland, Spain, and Ireland. Besides traveling, some of Dr. Petrilla s other hobbies and interests include hiking, skiing, painting, and art collecting. "
