Personalized Care by Dr. Ellis
All surgery is performed by Dr. William Ellis personally. We do not employ other surgeons. Some corporate centers fly contracted surgeons in from other locations. This never happens at Ellis Eye. All operative procedures are by Dr. Ellis himself. You get the benefit of years of experience. Dr. Ellis is a surgeon’s surgeon. He has performed over 68,000 procedures, and his patients have included athletes other physicians, nurses, and famous personalities.
All Post-Operative Care is Provided by Dr. Ellis and His Staff
Some centers participate in various schemes whereby the referring doctor is paid large sums to provide postoperative care. This arrangement is termed co-management and in some cases may border on fee-splitting, which is illegal in California. Sometimes the referring optometrist may receive as much as $500 per eye or more. These fees are often passed on to the patient and the center will charge them more for a procedure in which they pay for co-management. At Ellis Eye, we do not engage in fee-splitting or co-management. By providing all of your postoperative care directly we use our years of experience to benefit you directly. This ensures that you receive the finest post-operative attention. And the good part is that you save substantially on the cost of your procedure.
Proven Quality Assurance to Provide the Finest Technology and Equipment
At Ellis Eye, you get the benefits of Dr. Ellis’ premedical training in electrical engineering. Dr. Ellis received a degree in EE from U.C. Berkeley prior to attending medical school and receiving his ophthalmology training. He majored in field and wave transmission, the subspecialty involved in laser design and development. At Ellis Eye, we employ our own factory-trained physicist on staff to perform laser maintenance and quality control. At some centers, it may be six months or more between visits by the service technician. Not at Ellis Eye! And because we perform our own service we can pass along large cost savings to you in the form of lower procedure fees. In contrast to some doctors who rent lasers, or have lasers brought in on a truck the day of surgery, at Ellis Eye we own all our equipment and lasers to assure the highest quality.
