SAN DIEGO, Mar. 01 2006 — Dr. Farzad Yaghouti of the San Diego LASIK Center is proud to annouce that Global Laser Vision Medical Centers has been Voted America’s Top Ophthalmologists by Consumers’ Research Council of America.
How Ophthalmologists Were Selected
Consumers’ Research Council of America has compiled a list of top Ophthalmologists throughout the United States by utilizing a point value system. This method uses a point value for criteria that we deemed valuable in determining top Ophthalmologists.
The criteria that was used is as follows:
Experience: Each year the Ophthalmologist has been in practice
Training: Education and Continuing Education
Professional Associations: Member of Ophthalmologic Associations
Simply put, Ophthalmologists that have accumulated a certain amount of points qualified for the list. This does not mean that Ophthalmologists that did not accumulate enough points are not good healthcare professionals, they merely did not qualify for this list because of the points needed for qualification.
Similar studies have been done with other professions using a survey system. This type of study would ask fellow professionals who they would recommend. We found this method to be more of a popularity contest. For instance, professionals who work in a large office have much more of a chance of being mentioned as opposed to a professional who has a small private practice. In addition, many professionals have a financial arrangement for back-and-forth referrals. For these reasons, we developed the point value system.
No fees, donations, sponsorships or advertising are accepted from any individuals, professionals, corporations or associations. This policy is strictly adhered to insure an unbiased selection.
Dr. Farzad Yaghouti, Chief Refractive Surgeon, said, “We are honored to be recognized by the prestigious Consumers’ Research Council of America. At Global Laser Vision, our goal is for patients to feel comfortable, educated and informed.”
