For years, people in Utah have trusted Bill Gephardt’s word. As host of the popular and long-running local KSL TV News segment “Get Gephardt,” he investigated dishonest businesses and service providers, holding them accountable for their actions. Since retiring from active television duty in 2010, he has launched the next phase in his consumer advocacy career: Gephardt Approved. Now, rather than rooting out unscrupulous businesses, he seeks out the best of the best, investigating their business practices and professional reputations thoroughly before declaring them “Gephardt Approved” and backing their services with his own guarantee.
We are proud to announce that Hoopes Vision is the first and only eye surgery center in Utah to be Gephardt Approved, for our achievements in LASIK, cataract surgery, implantable lenses (ICL), and other vision correction procedures. The honor wasn’t bestowed lightly: Bill spent considerable time researching clinical and surgical success rates, interviewing doctors, and visiting our clinic and surgery center on multiple occasions to witness first-hand the level of patient care Hoopes Vision delivers. Only after his thorough investigative process did he declare Hoopes Vision to be Gephardt Approved, profiling our clinic on his website (GephardtApproved.com) and backing us with his well-known guarantee.
Trust is everything when choosing any kind of service provider, but rarely is it as vitally important as in the realm of eye surgery, where you may truly have only one chance to “get it right.” We know that Utah trusts Bill Gephardt, and we’re honored that Bill trusts Hoopes Vision.
