Eye Doctor Ratings Cape Coral

If you are looking for an eye doctor in Cape Coral, you may be checking online ratings. To choose the best optometrist or ophthalmologist for your family’s eye and vision care, we encourage you to rely on other measures of quality and avoid being misled by online reviews.

Although people have different tastes and preferences, most are capable of rating the friendliness of a waiter or waitress in a restaurant, the cleanliness and amenities of a hotel room, and whether or not the windows in their home were professionally installed.  This is not the case for online doctor reviews.

Eye Doctor Ratings Cape CoralWith little to no medical expertise, however, the majority of patients are not able to judge the quality of the services they receive or to evaluate a doctor’s expertise in his field. This means that ratings and reviews are limited to evaluations of how long they had to wait to get an appointment, the doctor’s bedside manner, the staff’s demeanor, and whether parking was convenient.

Of course these things are important, but most people are looking for a doctor who will provide the best possible care.  Unfortunately, this cannot be measured by patients at online rating websites. A poor rating or review from a patient who was unhappy with the décor in the doctor’s office cannot help you make a decision.

The skilled team offers everything from routine eye exams for glasses to bladeless laser-assisted cataract surgery for everyone in the family, from children to seniors.

Choosing Elmquist Eye Group means that you will be choosing the best possible eye care. Dr. Elmquist has been selected as one of America’s Top Doctors in ophthalmology by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., which recognizes him as one of the best ophthalmologists in Cape Coral and Fort Myers and among the top 1% of ophthalmologists in the nation. The respected Top Doctors guide identifies the best doctors in every part of the country and in every medical specialty.

After being nominated by other physicians, the nominees are screened by a physician-led research team that evaluates each doctor’s education, training, board certification, fellowships; professional reputation, achievements, disciplinary histories and more. Only the most exceptional doctors are selected and they cannot pay to be listed in the guide.

Another great way to identify an exceptional eye doctor is to verify his or her board certification with the American Board of Ophthalmology or, for optometrists, with the Florida Board of Optometry.  Board certification means that your eye doctor has the knowledge, experience and skills to provide comprehensive eye care services.

Unless your only requirement is for the receptionist to have a friendly personality, relying on online ratings to find health care professionals is about as helpful as choosing your Cape Coral eye doctor from the phone book.
