Procedure: LASIK Wavefront<br> Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â COST Reasonable and affordable<br> Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Results Excellent at 9 hours POST OP (will update if this changes)<br><br>I rarely leave Yelp reviews but after reading the negative reviews for Dr. Ellis I was compelled to accurately and fairly describe my surgical experience that I had TODAY! <br> <br>Initially, I was seen in the Walnut Creek office for the first exam and consultation. Â The process was smooth at that location despite a few hang-ups that are to insignificant to even mention. Â This was on THURSDAY and I scheduled the surgery for TODAY (04/08/13). Â <br><br>I was impressed by how qualified Dr. Ellis was in refractive surgery which comforted me in making my final decision to proceed. Â Given his impressive list of qualifications, there were several other perks along the way and I will try to list them.<br><br>During my pre op time, I had the pleasure to meet with Bobbie, RN and she gave me very detailed instructions on what to expect intra-op and post op. Â She was concerned with my comfort and provided me with amazing reassurance and VALIUM, thank goodness! Â I was a bundle of nervous energy! Â After speaking with her and listening to what she had to say, I was at ease and felt ready. Â She is a definite true gem in this practice, a real asset! Â An amazing lady and a pioneer in her field as well! Â One RN knows another!<br><br>Dr. Ellis was very warm and comforting during my initial encounter with him prior to the surgical procedure. Â All negative comments written here that were in my mind suddenly vanished. Â He answered all the questions that I had and he was very patient. Â In no way did I feel rushed or like he was minimizing the way I was feeling as I was very apprehensive. Â Granted, he is preforming LASIK everyday but I never felt Â insignificant. Â He even allowed my friend/ride to sit in during the procedure. Â Dr. Ellis was approachable and personable with a good bedside manner. Â <br><br>Intra-operatively, Joel made things seem to function smoothly. Â He was explaining everything that Â I was experiencing and feel as Dr. Ellis was working. Â He let me know how much time was remaining and what I would experience during that time. Â This may have been the most reassuring part of the entire day aside from the fact that surgery was at 1:45pm and I can see clearly now without contacts or glasses at 10:00pm. <br><br>Thank you Ellis Eye and Laser!!<br><br>PS. Â Thank you Bobbie for the Prada, Gucci and Coach products! Â I have grown to really like them as you said that I would!
