"Best of 2011"
Michael A. Behforouz, MD, in practice since 2001 as a comprehensive ophthalmologist, was recently presented with an American Registry Patients’ Choice Award. The award reflects the exceptionally high praise that Dr. Behforouz received through online feedback from his patients. This marks the fifth consecutive year this Indianapolis area physician has been so honored.
Every month, more than 40,000 patients across the United States rate various components of their healthcare experiences, including bedside manner, degree of follow-up and their opinions on overall satisfaction with their physicians. These patient reviews total in the hundreds of thousands on an annual basis. Of those who receive positive reviews, only physicians with near perfect scores receive the Patients’ Choice Award.
“We take immense pride in providing our patients with eye care based upon good communication and compassion,” Dr. Behforouz commented. “We establish strong rapport with our patients…that is critical in ensuring that our patients receive eye care that is tailored to their unique situation”, the doctor added. “We do not operate our practice with these ratings as a goal….they are a welcome by-product of strong patient-focused care”, he summarized.
Operating under the name Center for Sight, Dr. Behforouz has two offices in the greater Indianapolis area including locations in Carmel and Greenwood. He received his undergraduate degree at Indiana University and is an honors graduate of the Indiana University School of Medicine. With additional medical training at St. Vincent Hospital, Indianapolis and an international rotation in ophthalmology in Ho Chi Mihn City, Vietnam, he is certified through the American Board of Ophthalmology and completed his ophthalmology residency at the prestigious Emory Eye Center in Atlanta, Georgia.
The local offices specialize in LASIK and Custom Cataract Surgeries, diseases of the eye, specialty contact lenses and low vision rehabilitation. More information on the practice and on Dr. Michael Behforouz can be obtained at www.caringforeyes.com.
