SightMD is excited to announce that its doctors have earned a few spots on Newsweek’s prestigious list of America’s Best Ophthalmologists 2023. Dr. Jeffrey Martin, Dr. James Gordon and Dr. John Mauro have all been included on this year’s list. With the publication of Newsweek’s America’s Best Ophthalmologists 2023, our doctors were honored to rank among the 175 best professionals in their field, nationwide. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking doctor. The awards list was announced on June 14th, 2023 and can currently be viewed on the Newsweek website.

Data collected in the Newsweek rankings came from other eye care professionals who were surveyed directly. Respondents included ophthalmologists, optometrists, clinic managers, and other eye care professionals, all of whom were asked to weigh in on the most respected and accomplished optometrists and ophthalmologists in their area. After surveying more than 10,000 professionals from the nation’s eye care field, the results are in for this year’s top 175 ophthalmologists. 

James R. Gordon, MD, is a board-certified ophthalmologist and oculofacial surgeon with over 20 years of experience. He has particular expertise in the handling of challenging and complex cases. Dr. Gordon has published numerous papers and given extensive lectures on ocular disease and eyelids as well as facial cosmetic procedures which include innovative techniques for fillers and injectables. Dr. James Gordon was ranked 3rd in New York and 22nd in the nation.

“I am humbled and honored to be recognized by my peers as one of America’s Top Ophthalmologists. It is such a privilege to serve patients every day along with the support of my dedicated team. I’m so fortunate to love my job and look forward to providing the best care to all my patients.” said Dr. James Gordon.

Jeffrey Martin, MD, is the co-founder and president of SightMD. His father founded the practice in 1962, and Dr. Martin is proud to have helped it become the leading eye care organization that it is today with more top doctors than any other practice in New York. Dr. Martin is a board-certified ophthalmologist who specializes in cataract and laser vision correction (LASIK)  eye surgery in Smithtown. Dr. Jeffrey Martin was ranked 4th in New York and 23rd in the nation.

“Working with so many great ophthalmologists and staff members, an honor like this is appreciated but certainly belongs to the team at SightMD. I am thrilled to be included on a list with so many excellent eye doctors.” said Dr. Jeffrey Martin.

John Mauro, DO, is a board certified ophthalmologist specializing in cataract and laser vision correction surgery. He is driven to provide exceptional eyesight to his patients and make them feel as comfortable as possible throughout their eyecare journey. Although Dr. Mauro specializes in the latest techniques of Laser Cataract Surgery and LASIK surgery, he also sees and treats patients with common eye conditions providing comprehensive exams. Dr. Mauro was ranked 19th in New York while also ranking nationally.

“It is a great honor to be listed among America’s best eye doctors by newsweek. Thank you to all of my patients, colleagues and to the staff at SightMD. Without you, this achievement would not be possible!” said Dr. John Mauro.

More than 5,500 health care professionals participated in the national survey—implemented by Statista—which asked them to recommend the best ophthalmologist in their state and in the US. Additionally, participants were asked to rank certain specifics that influence the quality of eye doctors, which include the sophistication of technical equipment and continuity of care as well as overall quality of care. The recommendations and quality score were analyzed to determine the 2022 list of “America’s Best Ophthalmologists.”
