How to Find Reliable Information
When you read ratings and reviews online, you will most likely find that the majority of the discussions are about topics such as appointment waiting times, friendliness of office staff and parking convenience. Although these factors are important, they provide you with little or no information about a doctor’s skills, training or expertise.
There is also no way to evaluate whether a review is real or fake. Doctors and other professionals, from tax accountants to restaurants to auto mechanics, can often pay to have glowing, but false, reviews written on their behalf.
The following resources are more valuable and reliable than reviews and ratings you will find on the Internet:
American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO): The ABO is the primary resource for verifying that an Ophthalmologist is board certified and has the knowledge, experience and skills to provide comprehensive eye care services, from prescribing glasses and contact lenses to complex and delicate eye surgery.
American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS): Board certified doctors are committed to taking excellent care of you and your family. Another way to verify board certification for more than 800,000 physicians in 24 different medical specialties is by visiting the Certification Matters website managed by the ABMS. The Board can also be reached by phone at (866) 275-2267.
Referrals and Recommendations – Your primary care physician or family doctor is often a good resource. He or she may be able to refer you to an ophthalmologist with a solid reputation for excellent eye care. Family, friends and colleagues may also have recommendations for qualified cataract surgeons with whom they’ve had good experiences.
Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania is the leading ophthalmology practice in the region, with four convenient locations in Wyomissing, Pottsville, Pottstown and Blandon. Services are provided by a team of board certified, fellowship-trained ophthalmologists and a patient-friendly staff of over 100.
