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.

in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA |
Dr. Aghai performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes. One in May 2016, and the other in June 2016, at Memorial Hospital of Gardena. I had ReStor lens implanted in each eye and my vision is now wonderful! He is a very competent surgeon and has a very relaxing manner. Waiting room times are usually VERY long.

Respectful, knowledgable and caring. He came to his office on the weekend to see my grandson 's eye when he got hit by a basketball while visiting during his winter vacation. He did NOT send us to the ER to wait for hours and having to pay ER fees. Instead he treated my grandson in his office without charge because my grandson didn't have insurance. A rare doctor in this day and age who really cares about his patients. Thank you Dr. Aghai!
