Well, it looks like Dr. Mark Johnson, author of the "clamoring scum" article (http://www.eyeworld.org/article.php?sid=196) has an opinion about fake patient advocate/LASIK referral organizations.

CRSQA-certified surgeon Barrie D. Soloway, MD, director of vision correction, New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, said, ?In one sense, any layperson can go out and set up an organization similar to what Hagele has done. There is no way to prevent an organization from simply being a rubber stamp, ?Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval?? for payment.?

Many are skeptical of the value of any of the certification programs in existence today. The essential problem with the surgical credentialing boards is that they have no standards for surgical skill, said Mark Johnson, MD, Venice, Fla.

No standards is right.


"What concerns me is that if the person informing the patient is themselves poorly or inaccurately informed then how on earth can consent ever be truly informed?" Dr. Sarah Smith
