Ocala Eye Welcomes Dr. ElMallah

In August 2008 Ocala Eye officially added another superb ophthalmologist with fellowship training in glaucoma. Mohammed K. ElMallah, M.D. is the latest ophthalmologist to join the medical staff of the most comprehensive eye care practice in the Heart of Florida. Dr. ElMallah’s practice will comprise glaucoma treatment and surgery as well as cataract surgery and comprehensive ophthalmic care.

After completing his undergraduate studies at Harvard University, Dr. ElMallah received his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas and then went on to complete his glaucoma fellowship at Duke University. In addition to his academic and surgical accomplishments, Dr. ElMallah has been a featured speaker at numerous ophthalmology conferences and has published several articles in peer-reviewed medical journals. Upon the completion of his medical training, Dr. ElMallah was referred to Ocala Eye by a colleague who put him in touch with glaucoma specialist Michael Morris, M.D. “When I first visited Ocala, I spent some time with Dr. Morris and his fellow physicians at the Ocala Eye Surgery Center. I came away from that first experience extremely impressed,” says Dr. ElMallah. “Each doctor provides excellent care, and is surrounded by highly skilled clinical staff keeping things moving efficiently. This is the basis for providing quality patient care and I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I’m very pleased to be associated with Ocala Eye.”

Relocating from North Carolina with his wife and two young children, Dr. ElMallah is looking forward to calling Ocala their new home. “Growing up, I’ve lived all over the country... It feels good to have my family in a nice town where we can make new friendships and be a part of the community.”

Dr. ElMallah will be providing care for the patients of Hina Ahmed, M.D. who is relocating to be closer to her family. Dr. Ahmed will be missed and wishes all of her patients continued good health. “I have met with Dr. ElMallah and he is a wonderful addition to Ocala Eye. Of course I will miss my patients but they will continue to receive excellent care with Dr. ElMallah. I wish him and Ocala Eye all my best.”

New Ocala Eye Hearing Program
A benefit exclusively for our patients

Much like age-related changes in your eyesight, the ability to hear a full range of sound can diminish so gradually over the years that it's hard to notice. Ocala Eye patients have repeatedly asked their Ocala Eye doctor where to go for an honest assessment of their hearing, with many indicating they would be more comfortable if Ocala Eye offered a hearing program. Now your choice for complete eye care can also meet your hearing health needs with the latest automated screening equipment and the highest quality digital hearing aids.
Ocala Eye has welcomed Kate Maen, a Board-Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist, to implement the hearing testing and custom fitting of hearing aids. Kate wears a hearing aid herself and has been assisting others with their hearing problems for over 13 years. Kate works closely with your Ocala Eye doctor to assess your hearing abilities and offer solutions that are unique to each patient.

Our goal is to provide you with professional help in customizing an affordable hearing solution that fits your lifestyle and expectations.
