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.

Removed a cataract. Everything went well.
in Loveland, CO |
Dr. Kirk has been my eye doctor for years. He always takes the time to answer all my questions, he explains issues to me, and has an outstanding set of staffers. I particularly liked the internal organization during a recent cataract surgery. Everyone was clear in their explanations and answers to my questions, the actual procedure was great with competent and helpful staff. Kirk Eye Center is the greatest.
in Drake, CO |
Dr. Kirk takes time with his patients. He explains your particular situation and allows you to express your concerns in detail and then answers with clarity. I never feel rushed when I'm with Dr. Kirk and he always explains what he's going to do during the eye examination. I'll be getting my cataract surgery next week and I know I'm in good hands. The personnel at Kirk Eye Center are professional and treat their patients with respect. You can tell everyone enjoys working there.
