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.

Patient Comments (2)
in Ossining, NY |
On July 13 I had a catherterization done at Lawerence hospital. From the moment I walked in everyone treated me with an smile and courtesy. I had never met Dr. Monsen prior to July 13 and I was very nervous. I did not know what to expect. Before the procedure he came to my bed and explained the entire procedure to me and my wife. We asked several questions and he answered them all in detail. The procedure was totally painless and Dr. Monsen keep asking me how I felt during the procedure.
in Glenham NY |
Dr Monsen was amazing. At just 40 years old I was very very nervous when I found out that I needed a cardio cath. I arrived at Columbia in NYC at 9am and I was called back within minutes of my arrival. Dr Monsen took time to meet with me and clearly explain the plan. He put me at ease and I am forever grateful for the level of care and the fact that Dr Monsen did a great job calmimg me down. Dr Monsen was kind and caring and I felt as if I was speaking to a friend in the prep room. Thank You
