KENNESAW, Ga., Nov. 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Chris Hobson and Dr. Heather Zutaut of Hobson Eye Associates have recently become board certified by the American Board of Optometry. Board certification is a rigorous process by which candidates demonstrate their ability to deliver excellent standards of care. Doctors certified by the Board have demonstrated that their skills and knowledge exceed that of entry level professionals. They demonstrate that they can use and apply what they learned in school and that they have kept up on the most recent developments in eye care using this knowledge to provide excellent standards of patient care. Optometrists with board certification have a demonstrably higher standard of patient care, increased clinical knowledge, and better use of cutting edge technology.
Dr. Chris Hobson of Hobson Eye Associates is honored by the recent certification. "Doctors who are board certified not only have demonstrated their competence on the initial exam but must continue to do so regularly to maintain their certification. It is not about passing a single test, rather proving that our standard of care is among the best nationally." Dr. Zutaut agrees, "For me, board certification is a way for new patients to know we have done everything necessary to provide them with excellent care before they even get to know me. Once they get to know us, they often become life-long patients."
Recently, Dr. Jessica Hall joined the staff at Hobson Eye Associates. Dr. Hall remembers visiting Dr. Hobson's office as a young girl and is honored to be working alongside him today. "After finishing my education in New York, we decided to return to the Atlanta area," says Dr. Hall. "Though I completed my internship elsewhere, I was thrilled to join Dr. Hobson's practice. I received excellent care here as a child and am happy to carry on the long-standing tradition of excellent patient care."
