Montreal, QC – March 10, 2015 – LASIK MD, Canada’s leading provider of laser vision correction, is proud to announce that for the eighth consecutive year, it has been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies. The award recognizes sustained efforts in growth, financial performance, and management practices of the entire organization.
For the second straight year, LASIK MD is also part of the prestigious Platinum Club. This designation salutes companies who have won the award for seven consecutive years and is the highest level awarded by Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.
“We are honoured to be recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies once again,” said Dr. Mark Cohen, President and Co-Founder. “Being a part of the Platinum Club is a testament to our great service, state-of-the-art technology, and affordable pricing that makes laser vision correction available to all.”
Established in 2001 by Dr. Mark Cohen and Dr. Avi Wallerstein with a clinic in Montreal, QC, LASIK MD has since become Canada’s only national provider of laser vision correction. Today, LASIK MD has 30 clinics across Canada, including the major markets of Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary and Vancouver. More than half of all laser vision correction surgeries performed annually in Canada are performed at a LASIK MD clinic.
LASIK MD’s National Medical Director and Co-Founder, Dr. Avi Wallerstein, says they have over 700 employees, making them the largest privately owned medical services firm in Canada.
“This award is a tribute to the entire LASIK MD team,” he says. “All of our employees play an important role in delivering a great experience to each and every patient. We are also very grateful to our patients for entrusting us with their vision and spreading such positive word of mouth.”
This award, which is led by professional services firm Deloitte, recognizes Canadian owned and managed companies grossing over $10 million in revenues.
“I want to congratulate LASIK MD on being a Platinum Club member. This designation exemplifies consistency, commitment and the ability to be flexible in a changing marketplace. These qualities are what make LASIK MD such a great business success story and one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies,” said Peter Brown, National Co-Leader of Canada’s Best Managed Companies Program and Senior Practice Partner, Deloitte.
