Dr. Augustine J Kellis has the following 1 specialty
An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

I feel that Dr. Kellis did not thoroughly explain my options to me. He only gave me one option for having basil cell ca removed from my face. The option was to go to a dermatologist in Chagrin to have it removed and a Mohs procedure to determine that the edges were clean. Then with a bandaged open wound--to return to his surgery center in Chardon, to have him close it. When I asked the dermatologist why she couldn't close the wound, I was told that she could have done it if I had come to her first, but I now had to return to his office. So besides her bill, which was resonable, I was then charged 29,000.00 for Dr. Kellis's services, plus a bill from the Surgery center for use of the facilities. In comparing these charges to the charges of a friend who went to the Cleveland Clinic for areas much larger than mine on the face, these were 6X more.
