The Eye Clinic of Texas
Dr. Bernard Milstein named Texas Monthly Super Doc®
League City, Texas – For the second consecutive year, Dr. Bernard Milstein of The Eye Clinic of Texas has been named by his peers as a Texas Monthly Magazine Super Doctor®.Founded in 1972, The Eye Clinic of Texas offers the latest in cataract and refractive surgery, as well as a full-range of other eye care services at three locations throughout Galveston County: League City, Galveston and Texas City. For more information, call (800) 423-3937 or visit www.ecot.com.
The Super Doctors® list was compiled by Key Professional Media, which asked more than 50,000 Texas physicians one question: “To whom would you refer a loved one or one of your patients for medical diagnosis and/or treatment?” After tallying the replies, the research team identified those Texas doctors who earned special recognition from their peers or demonstrated other indications of expertise in their specialties. Since all doctors practicing in Texas are required to comply with stringent licensing requirements, the researchers also confirmed that each physician is properly licensed and without a history of disciplinary action. In the end, KPM established a list of Texas Super Doctors® in 20 specialty areas.
“It is truly an honor to be selected as a Texas Monthly Super Doc” says Milstein, “The Eye Clinic of Texas has always strived to provide the highest level of patient care. I do feel I share this honor with my fellow doctors at The Eye Clinic, as well as my superb staff. At The Eye Clinic, we focus on being a team – when the team performs well, everyone wins.”
Milstein specializes in LASIK, cataract surgery and refractive lens surgery. As an investigator in the original Food and Drug Administration laser vision correction studies, he helped prove the safety of the excimer laser for the treatment of myopia, astigmatism and hyperopia.
