[Charleston, SC, August 23, 2022] – Carolina Eyecare Physician’s Medical Director and ophthalmologist Dr. Kerry Solomon has been awarded on Newsweek’s list of America’s Best Ophthalmologists 2022. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list was announced on July 20th, 2022 and can currently be viewed on Newsweek’s website.
America’s Best Ophthalmologists 2022 recognizes the best Ophthalmologists in the U.S. Statista invited over 10,000 medical experts to participate in an online survey where they recommend ophthalmologists in their own state, as well as for all the U.S. The rankings feature the top 175 ophthalmologists. The evaluation process was comprised of two steps:
- Recommendations from peers: an independent national survey which resulted in more than 5,500 recommendations from doctors, ophthalmologists, optometrists, managers, and health care professionals with knowledge of ophthalmology. Participants were asked to recommend the best ophthalmologists in their state, as well as for all of the U.S. Participants could also recommend doctors from the other specialty (ophthalmologists for optometrists and vice versa). These recommendations were weighted lower than recommendations from the same specialization.
- Quality Score: Additionally, participants were asked to rank the quality dimensions which influence the quality of Eye Doctors. Participants were asked to differentiate between these variables:
- Quality of technical equipment (e.g. use of the most recent equipment)
- Continuity of care (e.g. degree to which consistent and constant care is provided including preventive care and follow-up care)
- Quality of care (e.g. treatments, consultation with a doctor)
Dr. Solomon is ecstatic to be recognized on Newsweek’s list of America’s Best Ophthalmologists 2022.
“I am delighted to learn that Dr. Solomon has been recognized on Newsweek’s ‘America’s Best Ophthalmologists’ list. His commitment to advancing the field of ophthalmology through research studies, utilizing state-of-the-art equipment and providing exceptional patient care has led him to become an industry leader. We are very proud to work alongside him,” said Crissy Justice, Director of Operations at Carolina Eyecare Physicians.
