Not a retina specialist as described. I had to pay my copay for basically a referral to another doctor. It was a waste of both his and my time.

He and his staff were both incredibly welcoming and professional. They listened to my issues/concerns with what was going on with my eye, were not judgmental that my first visit was for an issue vs. a healthy visit (something many offices are) and recommended new solutions and medicines for me to try. So far I've used the drops they recommend once and am feeling better already! Hopefully my issue goes away quickly and all will be well for my follow up in a few weeks. Would definitely recommend him!

Visited Dr. Ellant after I had seen a Optometrist regarding irritation of my eye that never got better. Dr. Ellant and his staff were very thorough in examining me. He was able to immediately identify the issue (the previous Dr I saw couldn't identify an issue) and provide a solution for me as well as planning a day/time for me to come back for a follow up. I normally hate going to an eye doctor - like most people I hate things going near my eye - but Dr. Ellant made me feel so comfortable all through the exam. The wait time was a bit long for an early appointment (about 30 minutes) but the staff was extremely friendly and did their best to speed up the process and make sure I wasn't forgotten.

I am so glad i found Dr. Ellant. He was knowledgable, professional, patient, kind and has a wonderful way with patients. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for an experienced and caring doctor. He helped diagnose my eye problem and provided a very holistic solution so i could avoid taking anti-biotics (as I'm pregnant). And his stafff was friendly and lovely too.

I thought he as a doctor was great but it may help if his appointment times were more realistic. I left early from work to come see him and waited an hour. His time isn't the only one which is valuable. F

Appointment time means nothing. Waited about 2 hours, gave the same information twice, and the doctor hardly spent anytime or showed any interest. I wouldn't go again.

Dr Ellant is terrific. The wait time was terrible, though, and although I allotted two hours for the visit, because of the wait-- I was late picking up my son and he almost missed his annual doctor appointment. I am giving the practice another shot because (1) Dr Ellant himself was really great, attentive, took time to explain things to me etc and (2) they are merging with another company and so things were, apparently, more hectic and disorganized than usual.

My overall appointment left me confused. Granted I went on a day where they were updating their systems so it was a bit chaotic. I ended up spending 2 hours of my workday for this appointment (not ideal). I was shuffled between rooms and with different technicians who kept asking me the same health questions even though I filled out the health questionnaire on zoc doc and at the office again. I made this appointment with the intention of getting my eyes re-checked and to order new contact lens since I just threw out my last pair. I'm not even sure if my eyes were checked for a prescription change and I have no idea how to re-purchase new contacts/how much they cost. Overall, I would not go back.

Dr Ellant was great - amazing bedside manner and very attentive. It is a shame his front office staff does not reflect his same professionalism. They spoke about a patient out in the open and where very disorganized and unprofessional - waited over an hour for my appointment.
