Specialties

Dr. Elliot L Korn has the following 1 specialty

  • Ophthalmology

    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.

Save yourself a couple of visits

by going to someone else. This guy will do a meet and greet and schedule you again for the actual refraction which is the quickest I've ever experienced. Assembly line of older, out-of-state patients, I hope are being well served but wouldn't count on it.

Love my doctor

Dr. Korn has been my doctor since I was 16. I am now 45 and not once has he ever been anything but a caring physician. Even after I got Lasik which he told me he wouldn't do I still continue to see him annually for my visits. I have the utmost respect for this doctor

I won't go back

Being appalled that Dr. Korn was peddling nutritional supplements costing over $300 per month and available only thru him (because he could allegedly vouch for them), I wouldn't go back. How might it affect his care of a patient who said no to this? I was also seen much later than the scheduled appointment time, with no explanation. Given his specialty, I found that odd. His exam was also very superficial for an initial visit, & he wanted me to schedule a 2nd 1 at which he would have refracted my eyes and (as I understood it) & done some measurements to get a baseline for potential eye problems (e.g., mac degen?).
