Accepting new patients

Dr. Kay Park is a Board-certified ophthalmologist who has been treating patients in Glendale for over 14 years. Originally from the Philadelphia area, she moved to Los Angeles for fellowship training at USC. She sees both adults and children, prescribing eyeglasses and contact lenses, screening for glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, and performing surgery for eye conditions such as cataracts, using multifocal and toric lens implants that help decrease dependence on eyeglasses. Dr. Park considers the chance to meet new people and see long-time patients on a regular basis "one of the best things about my job". In her spare time, she enjoys volunteering as a Girl Scout troop leader for her daughter, with the Los Angeles Childrens Chorus for her son, and recently served as president of her alumni organization, the Harvard Club of Southern California.

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 left a message for Dr. Park's office to call me back regarding to my eye drop prescription three days ago. No one has called me back. Then I tried calling this morning (5/1/2017) at 9 am and the phone answering machine told me that I had called the office at off hours. Even through according to their website the office is opening today from 8:30 am to 5 pm. I guess they are not interested in keeping me as Dr. Park's patient.
