Care Philosophy

One of the great things about ophthalmology is - we can see almost all of the parts of the eye that we need in order to make a diagnosis. So most of the time, when I see a patient, I can tell them immediately what's going on, what treatment options there may be, or - very commonly - that there isn't anything that they need to worry about. We're benefitted working at Rush because in an academic setting we're spurred on by the presence of students and cutting-edge research to look for innovative ways to take care of our patients every day, instead of waiting for others to tell us what might be coming along. Cataract surgery is much easier than it was even 10 years ago on the patient. Although technologically it's much more difficult and much more complicated for the surgeon. And as a result, patients can come in, have cataract surgery and leave 15 or 20 minutes later, have no pain that night, and the next day have excellent vision. Most patients drive back to see us the next day for their postoperative examination.

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.
