Eye Doctor Ratings Fort Myers
Unless your only criteria for evaluating good eye doctors in Fort Myers are short waiting times, nice office décor and smiling office staff, don’t rely solely on the ratings and reviews you find on the Internet. Most patients who write reviews are not able to evaluate a doctor’s expertise in his field or know if they received the best treatment available.
At online rating and review sites, patients mainly share experiences. While convenient parking, well-trained office staff, and good bedside manner are important, you may also want to know if the optometrist or ophthalmologist you are considering is well-trained, knowledgeable about your specific eye condition, and qualified to provide your family with the highest quality of eye care.
The Elmquist Eye Group team has over 40 years of experience in the field of eye and vision care. We are proud to offer a unique combination of state-of-the-art treatment options and a passion for providing the highest level of service to our patients, from children to seniors.
Trevor Elmquist, DO, is an outstanding ophthalmologist who is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and a Fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. He was an ophthalmology resident at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and as Chief of the Homestead Air Force Base eye clinic before founding Elmquist Eye Group in 1992.
Kate M. Wagner, OD, Dr. Elmquist’s partner, and Nina G. Burt, OD, his associate, are board certified by the State of Florida and the National Board of Optometry. Both completed their optometry degrees at Fort Lauderdale’s Nova Southeastern University, graduating with honors, and can skillfully diagnose and treat a wide range of eye conditions.
Alternatives to Misleading Doctor Ratings
One highly respected and trustworthy review site is Angie’s List. Ratings cannot be submitted anonymously, and members are held accountable for the accuracy of their reviews. Elmquist Eye Group has been listed at Angie’s List since 2008, has maintained an “A” rating, and earned their coveted Super Service Award in 2014. We are one of only 5% of Southwest Florida ophthalmology and optometry practices to perform well enough to earn this Award.
If you are looking for an exceptional ophthalmologist, a good alternative to online ratings is the America’s Top Doctors guide, which is published and maintained by Castle Connelly Medical Ltd and identifies the best doctors in the country.
Doctors in every specialty are selected based on nominations from their peers and rigorous evaluations are conducted by a physician-led team of researchers. Dr. Trevor Elmquist has been designated as one of Castle Connolly’s America’s Top Doctors in Ophthalmology which ranks him among the top 1% of doctors in the U.S.
Lastly, pay a visit to the websites of the American Board of Ophthalmology and/ or the Florida Board of Optometry to verify that your eye doctor is, indeed, board certified and has the knowledge, experience and skills to provide comprehensive eye care services and a commitment to lifelong learning.
