Cataract Surgeons Reviews in SW Florida
Internet reviews of cataract surgeons can be helpful but may not be the best way to find an ophthalmologist in SW Florida when you are having problems with your vision and need expert eye care.
Most online reviews of optometrists, ophthalmologists and other specialists evaluate appointment waiting times, parking convenience, and friendliness of office staff. None of those factors will help you evaluate a doctor’s skills, training or expertise and, while these may be interesting things to know, they definitely don’t tell the whole story.

Reliable Sources of Information
There are reliable sources on the Internet that will help you decide if a cataract surgeon may be a good fit for you, such as:
- America’s Top Doctors: Each year, Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. identifies the nation’s best doctors in every medical specialty. Doctors are nominated by their peers and researched by a team of physicians who evaluate their training, experience, and history of disciplinary actions. The directory lists the top 1% of doctors in the nation, and doctors cannot pay to be listed.
- Angie’s List: A respected online review site, Angie’s List does not allow anonymous reviews, and accuracy is mandatory. Elmquist Eye Group has maintained an “A” rating with Angie’s List since 2008 and earned their coveted Super Service Award in 2014. We are one of few Southwest Florida ophthalmology and optometry practices to perform well enough to earn this Award.
- American Board of Ophthalmology: Board certified ophthalmologists have the skills and expertise to provide comprehensive eye care services, including complex and delicate eye surgery. This organization certifies that a doctor is board certified in his or her field. You can also verify that an eye surgeon you are considering is board certified by visiting the Certification Matters website of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS).
Another reliable source of information is to ask for recommendations from people you trust. Your primary physician, internist, optometrist, and colleagues and friends who have had cataract surgery can be excellent sources of information. These recommendations are often more valuable than reviews and ratings you find on the Internet.
