Dr. Robert Cionni Named One of 34 Best Ophthalmologists in America

Becker’s ASC Review recently released the “34 of the Best Ophthalmologists in America” list. Salt Lake City LASIK and cataract surgeon Dr. Robert Cionni, at The Eye Institute of Utah, was included among the top physicians in the ophthalmology field.

Dr. Robert Cionni, a specialist in cataract surgery and LASIK eye surgery in Salt Lake City, UT, was selected to Becker’s ASC Review list of the “34 Best Ophthalmologists in America” for his leadership and involvement in nationally recognized ophthalmologic organizations. Additionally, Dr. Cionni was selected for his use of technologically advanced procedures in the field of ophthalmology, including cutting-edge refractive and cataract surgery techniques.

The list was created through extensive research and recommendations from around the country. All surgeons included on the list were trained at top medical schools and often completed fellowships and residencies in ophthalmology at highly regarded institutions. Many of these surgeons are also recipients of nationally recognized awards and prizes and are involved with reputable universities and organizations, serving as researchers, professors, and contributors to scientific journals.

Dr. Cionni’s selection to the list was based strictly on this research method, as physicians do not pay and cannot pay to be selected to Becker’s ASC Review list. With nearly 30 years of experience as a vision correction specialist, Dr. Cionni says he is proud of his selection to the list of “34 of the Best Ophthalmologists in America.” However, Dr. Cionni adds that while the recent accolades are important to his success as a LASIK surgeon, his dedication to patient satisfaction and safety has been, and always will be his top priority.
