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 (1)
in Conroe, TX |
Dr. Kuglen restored my vision after two retina procedures and two years of being legally blind (20/400). I recommend him very highly in every aspect of his practice. He takes the time to talk to you, he explains everything completely (without talking down to you), and is very professional. On one of my follow-up visits my wife had what appeared to be the beginning of conjunctivitis. He took the time to examine her eye and told her the appropriate treatment free of charge.
