Salt Lake City, UT (Vocus) September 17, 2010
Several of the doctors at the Eye Institute of Utah have been selected as the Best Doctors in America® for 2009-2010. Compiled by Boston-based Best Doctors, Inc., the Best Doctors database is the result of an exhaustive survey of more than 45,000 physicians in the United States. Only those doctors recognized to be in the top 3-5% of their specialty, including the best LASIK surgeons in Salt Lake City, UT earn the honor of being named one of the Best Doctors in America®.
Known as cataract specialists and top LASIK surgeons in Salt Lake City, four doctors in particular have earned this prestigious award at the Eye Institute of Utah. Named one of the best cataracts surgeons in Salt Lake City, Robert J. Cionni, MD is the medical director of the Eye Institute of Utah and specializes in cataract and refractive surgery. Also selected as a top cataract surgeon in Utah, Alan S. Crandall, MD is a world-renowned cataract and glaucoma expert with the Eye Institute of Utah.
In addition to naming the best cataract surgeons in Utah, the Best Doctors in America® survey also bestowed this prestigious award on two other highly experienced doctors at the Eye Institute of Utah. Michael P. Teske, MD is a nationally and internationally acclaimed specialist in the treatment of retinal and vitreous diseases including retinal detachment and macular degeneration; and Bhupendra Patel, MD carries a diverse medical background as an oculoplastic surgeon, in addition to his specialization in ophthalmology.
Over the past 15 years, Best Doctors has been recognized for its tremendous and staggering database of physicians, and has earned worldwide acclaim for their effort in creating a validated, peer-reviewed database of excellence in medicine. To ensure continued success, the Best Doctors methodology is rigorously impartial and strictly independent. Doctors cannot pay to be included in the database, and are not paid to complete the survey. The only way to be included in the list of Best Doctors in America® is for a doctor to earn high marks for clinical ability from his or her peers.
