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.

Longmont, CO |
Knowledgeable, practical, listens to you as an individual.
in Berthoud, CO |
He is extremely competent and professional but also very caring with a good sense of humor. He performed cataract surgery on both my eyes; the procedures were quick, virtually painless, and did a fantastic job of correcting my vision problems. Dr. Karbassi patiently and kindly answered all of the questions I had before and after the surgeries. His staff is wonderful and friendly. Appointments are promptly kept (respecting patients' time) and communication is excellent. I highly recommend him!
