Where our data comes from - The data you see on providers' Healthgrades profiles comes from both the provider and public sources. The Top Care Areas section uses public data from billing claims that providers submit to insurance companies. That data is filed nationwide on behalf of the provider to either the government or a private health insurance company.

How we evaluate our data - Patient volume is analyzed by provider and compared nationally with all providers who perform the same procedure, or treat the same condition. We organize the volume data in percentile ranking from 'may perform' for the lowest claims volume to 'Very High' for the highest claims volume data. For a given condition or procedure, performance categories are defined based on 80%, 90%, and 95% confidence intervals from the average patient volume for all providers in our database. Providers identified as ‘may perform’ do not have sufficient volume for Healthgrades to create a statistical evaluation.

I saw Dr. Batchelet one time for a dilated exam. He also noted drooping eyelids. I found him to be very efficient, cheerful and explained everything out to me. Answered any questions I had. And, yes, I would recommend him to family and friends.

I recently had cataract surgery performed by Dr Andy Batchelet and I could not have asked for a more positive experience. His staff took care of all my needs before and after surgery. Dr Andy took the time to thoroughly explain the procedure to me. Both surgeries outcomes were perfect. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone considering cataract surgery.
in Bethel Park, PA |
I have recommended Dr. Batchelet to family members and friends. I had very bad cataracts in both eyes and was very nervous about the surgery. Dr. Batchelet was so kind and compassionate and reassured me that all would go well. I was had severe myopia before the surgery and wore very thick lenses. I can see distance clearly now and don't need glasses, with the exception of occasional reading glasses for close work. This surgery literally changed my life. This doctor is an excellent surgeon.
