The Consumers’ Research Council of America (CRCA), a Washington D.C. based research organization has awarded Dr. Jennifer Hui, a board certified oculoplastic surgeon in Palm Springs, CA, as one of “America’s Top Ophthalmologists” for 2013. This is the second consecutive year when Dr. Hui has been awarded this honor.
The CRCA’s mission is to educate and assist consumers across the United States in obtaining the best professional services for their needs. The CRCA does not accept any fee, donation, sponsorship, or advertising from any individual, professional, corporation, or association. This policy ensures that the organization is free from any biases or influences when making a selection for America’s Best in a particular field.
Unbiased Selection Methodology
The CRCI compiles its annual list of top Ophthalmologists throughout the United States by applying a point value system. This method uses a point value for criteria that the organization deems valuable in determining the topmost Ophthalmologists. The key criteria used for this system include the following:
- Experience: How many years the Ophthalmologist has been in practice
- Training: Education and continuing education
- Professional Associations: Membership of Ophthalmologic Associations
Ophthalmologists that accumulate a certain amount of points qualify for the list of “Top Ophthalmologists in America” for a particular year. The CRCA believes this system is more objective and accurate compared to other systems that may involve subjective opinions and recommendations of fellow professionals. The CRCA’s system effectively takes out the personal and emotional factors and focuses exclusively on facts.
