About Online Reviews
You will probably notice that most of the reviews and ratings you read online at sites like Yelp or Vitals are just relating experiences patients have had with doctors running behind schedule or unfriendly office staff. You won’t get much information about the doctor’s skills, training or expertise.
Here are a few alternatives that can provide you with reliable information:
- Verify board certification – Any physician can claim to be board certified, but you should verify it by visiting the Certification Matters The site provides up-to-date information on physicians who have met the certification requirements of one of the 24 individual specialty boards managed by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). You can also reach the ABMS by phone at (866) 275-2267.
- America’s Top Doctors – Check the list of America’s Top Doctors by Castle Connolly Medical for an ophthalmologist.

Dr. Trevor Elmquist has been one of America’s Top Doctors for the last three years.
- Angie’s List – Angie’s List members are held accountable for writing accurate reviews, so the ratings are less prone to manipulation. Elmquist Eye Group has been listed here since 2008, has maintained an “A” rating, and earned the coveted Angie’s List 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.
- Recommendations – Always ask your family, friends, neighbors and colleagues to recommend qualified eye doctors with whom they’ve had good experiences. And don’t forget about your family doctor or primary care physician who can probably refer you to an eye doctor they know and like. Recommendations from people you know and trust are more valuable than reviews and ratings you find on the Internet.
