We're trying something new with Top Care Areas.Was it helpful for you?YesNo

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 ELYRIA, OHIO |
I AM ALWAYS SATISFIED WITH THE CARE GIVEN BY DR. BAFNA AND STAFF. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. BAFNA.
Columbus, OH |
I had a wonderful LASIK experience with Dr. Bafna. He was very caring and talked me through the procedure the entire time. I felt very much relaxed and confident in my procedure with Dr. Bafna and would recommend him for anyone interested in their eye surgery. Everyone at Clear Choice was excellent as well. The only thing I regret is not gettin LASIK sooner!
Oberlin, OH |
I would recommend both Dr. Bafna and Dr. Bornhorst. The only item below that I didn't rate highly was due to my preference for a quiet waiting room. I don't care for the TV, although I suppose that helps some people in the dilation waiting area because it's hard to read when you've been dilated.
in North Ridgevilie, Ohio |
Dr. Bafna put me at ease the first time he met me. He has explained in detail what is involved with the cataract surgery and has listened and answered all our questions. I feel that I am in the very best surgical hands that are available in the Cleveland area.
in Eloy, Arizona |
Very pleased with the staff and Dr Bafna. Visiting family from out of state and needed medical care/advise before I could return to Arizona. They got me in quickly and everything worked out Great. I will recommend them to all our family and friends.

in Grafton, OH |
I was very pleased with the consultation, the procedure, and the after-care. Dr. Bafna took the time to talk about the procedure and all the options. He was easy to talk to and very sympathetic to my concerns about the procedure and any restrictions that may remain afterwards. I would highly recommend Dr. Bafna..

in Macedonia, OH |
DR. BAFNA DID MY CATARACT SURGERY AND I MUST TELL YOU BOTH HE AND HIS STAFF HELPED TO PUT ME AT EASE. FROM THE TIME i WALKED IN THE DOOR HIS GIRLS AT THE DESK LAURIE,KAREN, AND SYLVIA WERE VERY HELPFUL. THE REST OF THE STAFF THAT GOT ME READY FOR THE SURGERY WERE VERY PLEASANT AND INFORMATIVE. ALL I CAN SAY IS I WISH MY OTHER DOCTORS HAD THE TYPE EMPLOYEES YOUR OFFICE DOES. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. BAFNA AND HIS STAFF. D
in Maple Heights, OH |
I went in for a year long study for eye surgery with Dr Bafna at Cleveland Eye Clinic in Brecksville, Ohio. Dr Bafna performed my surgery and l have had excellent results, my vision in my left eye is now 20/20 plus 2. I can't say enough about the Dr, he was very professional and took his time with me and explained everything at each stage.
in Youngstown, Ohio |
For the first eye he was very calming and explained everything as he was doing it. For the second eye, he quickly moved without explanation which caused me to panic. Overall the experience was good and I have recommended numerous people to this facility -- It's life changing. If you're thinking about doing it, just go for it!
