Summary: Outstanding Surgeon and Clinician
August 12th, 2013
As a more senior ophthalmologist, and having run many clinical studies and worked with many new technologies, I have had the opportunity to observe many eye surgeons over the years. With that perspective in mind, I would like to offer some comments about John Berdahl, MD, based on up-close observation of his clinical and surgical skills at the Vance Thompson Vision center in Sioux Falls, SD.

I have observed Dr. Berdahl in the operating room and interacting with patients, and have spent time having in-depth discussions about his approach to his practice. Consistent with the overall approach of the VTV center, Dr. Berdahl's focus is on offering patients the best technology, the best practices and the best staff available. The state-of-the-art center is visible evidence of their commitment to excellence.

Beyond that, I watched Dr. Berdahl operate. His technical skills are superb, and his relaxed, composed manner in the operating room is remarkable--and rare. I would put my (or my family's) eyes in Dr. Berdahl's hands any day.

Each generation of ophthalmologists has its thought-leaders and its best-examples. They guide the way for innovation and improvements in patient care. Dr. Berdahl is one of those leaders. Our field will benefit from his commitment to driving excellence, and his patients will benefit from his skills and concern.
