Georgia’s biggest ophthalmology practice receives high performance rating for ophthalmology procedures

Eye Consultants of Atlanta, the largest ophthalmology practice in Georgia, was recently honored by U.S. News & World Report, which ranked its Piedmont Eye location among the best, high-performing ambulatory surgery centers in the country. 

“It’s an honor to be recognized alongside the nation’s other great ambulatory surgery centers,” says Dr. Evan S. Loft, President of Eye Consultants of Atlanta. “Our team continuously strives to provide innovative, compassionate care using a patient-centered approach. We take great pride in our commitment to serving our community and maintaining the highest standards.” 

U.S. News & World Report, in collaboration with CareJourney, rated nearly 5,000 ambulatory surgery centers in four different specialties: colonoscopy/endoscopy, ophthalmology, orthopedics/spine, and urology. Among the total rated surgery centers, only 14% received the highest performing ratings across key factors assessing patient outcomes. 

“We’re extremely grateful for the recognition,” says Lisa Brooks, RN, Administrator of Eye Consultants of Atlanta’s Piedmont Eye ambulatory surgery center. “The acknowledgement reflects our team’s effort to provide the utmost level of care that we would want for our own families. Ambulatory surgery centers play a vital role in U.S. healthcare by offering the highest levels of care, accessibility for patients, and an affordable alternative to hospital-based surgery. 

The Piedmont Eye location of Eye Consultants of Atlanta is dedicated to delivering specialized eye care and surgical expertise. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology and a team of skilled experts, Piedmont Eye provides a comprehensive range of surgical procedures, including advanced cataract surgery, LASIK, glaucoma treatments, retinal procedures, corneal transplants, and many treatments for various eye conditions. 

The U.S. News & World Report recognition is the second time Piedmont Eye ambulatory surgery center has received such an honor. In 2022, Piedmont Eye was ranked in Georgia’s top 10 ambulatory surgery centers by Newsweek magazine’s America’s Best Ambulatory Surgery Centers. 

Eye Consultants of Atlanta is excited to have recently opened the Fayetteville Surgery Center, offering the same high level of care in Atlanta’s southern region.
