Who are the Top Ophthalmologists in America?

December 14, 2011

Came across an interesting article published at the end of the summer purporting to identify the top 135 ophthalmologists in America. The introduction states that the ophthalmologists listed were “selected for this list based on the awards they received from major organizations in the field, leadership in those organizations, work on professional publications and their positions of service.”

The article assures readers that “[a]ll physicians placed on this list have undergone substantial review from our editorial staff. Physicians do not pay and cannot pay to be selected as a leader to know. The list is not an endorsement of any individual’s or organization’s clinical abilities.”

Here is a link to the article.

I am interested to hear readers’ comments. Are these sort of rankings helpful for our profession? For patients?
