January 26, 2015

Dr Mifflin is excellent in every way which leads to my confidence in moving forward with procedures he recommends

January 26, 2015

Dr. Mifflin is my champion

January 20, 2015

Dr. Mifflin showed very little concern about the seriousness of the problem I had been experiencing for weeks, without much relief. I was at a point where I couldn't even work anymore due to my eye problems, but his only suggestion was to come in again in a week or so. I happened to have an appointment with my doctor the next day and she was much more helpful lthan Dr. Mifflin.

January 19, 2015

Yes - the wait times are little high. But Dr Mifflin is so worth the wait. I would recommend him to anyone seeking eye care or needing surgery. He's an exceptional physician. Great skill, very kind. I sincerely appreciate the care he provided.

January 19, 2015

This was my first time to see Dr Mifflin (4th doctor on my case). I liked him and he explained my conditions in a manner that made it easier for me to understand.

January 19, 2015

I have told everyone how amazing the service was. The clinic I would have gone to in Layton was booked out several weeks, and where I work in SLC, I looked at your website and was very pleased to find a same day service program.

January 19, 2015

dr. mcfillin is a great dr. he is honest

January 03, 2015

Excellent care. I was pleased with my whole experience.

December 30, 2014

dr mifflin was great!

December 26, 2014

I met with the Fellow Dr. Fuerman and Dr. Mifflin. They had a wealth of knowledge and brought additional information to my attention that is very important as I go forward to have PRK preformed.

December 21, 2014

Care provider is outstanding

December 18, 2014

Dr Mifflin and staff have saved my sight continually.

December 15, 2014

Dr. Mifflin is the best! He is always so find, professional, and answers all my questions thoroughly and so I can understand. He is gentle and takes really good care of me. I highly recommend him!

December 09, 2014

Dr. Mifflin seems very competent and has always inspired me with his confidence. I can't say the same for others I've seen working with him in prior visits at the Moran Center. I saw 2 different residents (? )and neither impressed me.

December 05, 2014

The doctor, techs, nurses all spent time answering my questions and actually seemed to show genuine concern. Thank you.

December 05, 2014

Dr. Millfin could laugh more...

December 03, 2014

thank you for a good experience at the Clinic.

November 30, 2014

If i hadnt come to the moran eye center. I would be blind in my left eye. Thanks to Dr. Mifflin and his staff i have sight in my eye. I cant thank all of you enough.THANK YOU ALL

November 28, 2014

I had a less than favorable experience with another provider. I very much like Dr Mifflin.he tells me his opinion, but I have input in final decision ...other(s) assume, because it's routine for them it is to patient as well. that's simply not the case

November 25, 2014

Dr. Miflin and his team are superb, and I had a wonderful and pain-free result from my cataract extraction.

November 24, 2014

Superb Care!

November 21, 2014

All the staff, doctors and others were great.

November 20, 2014

All my appointments have been positive. I want to thank all of you for making my visits a very good experience.

November 20, 2014

I was provided with knowledge and understanding. I appreciate the way your office is set up

November 17, 2014

Have recommended Dr. Mifflin and will

November 17, 2014

I was seen by a post-doc fellow before the doctor came in. He did not announce his name, who he was, what he was doing. He was not informative (typed a lot though), in a hurry and inattentive. I am a fellowship coordinator at University Hospital - my fellows would never treat a patient in this manner. After he left, his name was on the computer (Epic) - Jason.... This was disturbing to me.

November 14, 2014

great experience. questions answered.

November 14, 2014

Dr Mifflin is probably one of the best surgeons I have had. He explained everything very well, and really helped my eye sight. I was very satisfied.

November 14, 2014

Everyone that I was with explained what they were doing and why. They did not hurry me and answered any questions I had, I would and have recommended Moran Eye Center to friends.

November 10, 2014

He was very caring and responsive!

November 07, 2014

I have recommended you to a peron in Idaho Falls Idaho that is having eye problems. I feel that this is the best place in our area. Hands down.

November 07, 2014

I am very confident in Dr Mifflin's ability as a doctor in treating my condition.

November 06, 2014

I have been treated by Dr Mifflin for over 20 years and I have complete confidence in him and his staff.

November 05, 2014


October 30, 2014


October 28, 2014

We have already recommended Drs. Mifflin and Teske to other people we know with somewhat complicated eye problems. We think the doctors we've met at the Moran Eye Clinic provide excellent and considerate cutting edge care.

October 27, 2014

I have complete confidence in Dr. Mifflin. He's the BEST!

October 26, 2014

Too many interns didn't explain clearly why he wanted me to go to other doctors,

October 26, 2014

No meds required. No follow-up care -- just annual exam w/dilation for now. Care providers spent ample time -- not really a lot needed.

October 17, 2014


October 17, 2014

Very satisfied

October 16, 2014

Obviously this is a very busy and complex practice. After being seen there I can understand why because the confidence and knowledge factors are extremely high. You feel like there is a solution to your problem and that they have the ability to find it.

October 16, 2014

Dr Mifflin is a great doctor he is soft spoken and listened to everything I said and answered the questions I asked.

October 12, 2014

I have received the best care possible from the Moran Eye center always

October 10, 2014

Dr. Mifflin is a good and caring person. Once he said to me," If they were my eyes...(actually they are my eyes)" and then proceeded to give me the help that I needed. He seems always glad to see me and is very concerned .

October 09, 2014

I am so grateful I found the Moran Eye Center and Dr. Mifflin and his fine staff! My experience was so positive! The first time my husband and I entered the Moran Eye Center, everyone we met and conversed with were so professional and courteous; my fears and concerns disappeared.

October 07, 2014

I have seen both Dr. Mifflin and Dr. Moshirfar, and both are excellent practitioners. I would recommend either.

October 02, 2014

Dr. Mifflin and his staff are always courteous and friendly

September 29, 2014

Absolute confidence in my doctor and Moran Eye Center

September 26, 2014

Dr Mifflin is a talented and very knowledgeable Doctor

September 18, 2014

I recommend Dr. Mark Mifflin to everyone.

September 08, 2014

I never felt the doctor was rushed or in any way wasn't paying full attention to me.

September 08, 2014

Excellent Doc and team.

September 05, 2014


September 05, 2014

great doctor

August 30, 2014

good experience.appropriate amount of time spent,only frustration not being able to see well out of new prescription glasses

August 29, 2014

I appreciated Dr Mifflin's explaining my situation to me and what possible routes to take. I appreciated his telling me that my health and my eyes are mine and decisions regarding them are mine. I appreciated his explaining my situation and his honesty. I certainly appreciate honesty from my medical care giver. i believe that only with the facts can one make a good decision.

August 28, 2014

I would recommend this office and doctor and to my family and friends

August 27, 2014

Dr. Mifflin is the best!!! And the technicians are always wonderful.

August 27, 2014

10- I did

Excellent Dr.

August 25, 2014

Overall, it was a tremendous experience. The staff were phenomenal. Thank you so much.

August 23, 2014

Dr. Mifflin has always had my best interest in mind. He is very caring about me and my needs as well. I would like to take the time to compliment him.

August 16, 2014

very professional

August 14, 2014

A straight but caring shooter as always. Looking forward to the next step-surgery.

August 13, 2014

I had had some bad experiences at the Moran Eye Center and was nervous about going back, but once I met Dr. Mifflin, Samuel and the rest of his staff I knew I had come to the right place. I trusted him right from the first because he told me the facts and didn't sugar-coat anything. I'm the kind of person that can handle things as long as I know where I stand and he obviously believes this too. Thanks to all of them.

August 11, 2014


August 11, 2014

Overall a caring and informative experience

August 11, 2014

Dr. Mifflin reviewed my history and notes from a specialist and was helpful with samples for allergy. He was aware of cost issues and this is appreciated.

August 08, 2014

I recommend Dr Mifflin to anyone who mentions vision, eye surgery, etc.

July 20, 2014

there are too many intermediary people before you actually see the primary doctor. it's not time effective. appointment was about 2 hours long and I only saw the two doctors I went there to see for about 5 minutes each.

July 20, 2014

Everyone was excellent. Dr. Mifflin is outstanding, and I couldn't be happier with the care that he and his staff have given me.

July 10, 2014

I felt very comfortable with everyone.

July 07, 2014

Dr. Mifflin is truly the BEST!

July 07, 2014

All great!

July 07, 2014

We did not have any problems with the visit

July 07, 2014

All good, I like how the students are included in the visits. They also were courteous.

July 04, 2014

He lets you know what he is doing and why every step of the way. He tells you the options and let's you make the decisions. He was very knowledgeable with what was wrong with my eye.

June 23, 2014

i have already told many friends and family about my awesome experience

June 21, 2014

Dr. Mifflin said I have early cataracts. I should asked more about this. Is this something I should be addressing now? Is it better to address cataracts early or wait for some future time? What are the risks associated with cataract surgery? I just forgot to ask.

June 20, 2014

Very professional and confidence inspiring

June 20, 2014

I recommend all my friends to Moran Eye Center.

June 17, 2014

I like Dr. Mifflin. he has been taking care of my eyes for a while now. one thing I was surprised I didn't get a card in the mail this past fall, but it sounds like they updated their computer system. they did however assure me I will get a card in the mail in about 9 months so I can schedule my next visit.

June 15, 2014


June 13, 2014

Have always been treated very kindly by everyone at the pffice

June 13, 2014

Both Dr. Millfin and Katie Jo have been great about answering any questions that I have, and telling me important information before I need to ask.

June 13, 2014


June 09, 2014

I am very impressed with both Dr. Millfin and Katie Jo Farnsworth!

June 06, 2014

Again, very impressed!

June 06, 2014

Everyone from the nurses to the resident to Dr. Mifflin was very professional and efficient. They answered all of my questions.

June 02, 2014

Very good

May 31, 2014

Dr. Mifflin is wonderful as always.

May 30, 2014

I recommend the eye center and my doctor to all my friends.

May 27, 2014

I have complete confidence in Dr. Mifflin and his staff.

May 26, 2014

He knows me and my needs

May 25, 2014

Confidence isn't fair in the doctor. I was recommended by another person who had symptoms similar to me, and the doctor had a pretty good grasp of various problems of people with LASIK complications.

May 24, 2014

There was a slight miscommunication about dosage amount for eye drops in between two visits. Overall it wasn't too bad.

May 23, 2014

Everyone that worked with me was very good at explaining whatever they were doing and why, and everyone was very friendly and did what they needed to do.

May 23, 2014

Dr. Mifflin is great. He is going extra mile to address my unique goals. He just was behind this day and trying to catch up

May 22, 2014

I love seeing Dr. Mifflin, he treats me just the way I want to be treated. I was suprised that there was no resident with him during my visit. I always enjoy having them come and love having Dr. Mifflin as their teacher.

May 21, 2014

Very good experience

May 14, 2014

I trust my dr and have recommended him to others. He is great, but he seemed distracted and in a hurry at this visit.

May 09, 2014

Good except for the blurred 11 hours dilation

May 08, 2014

Very positive experience with a very detailed exam and good communication

May 07, 2014

Wonderful Dr.

May 07, 2014

It is comforting to know that Dr. Mifflin knows doctors in Pocatello, and he speaks highly of him, as they do of him. I am grateful for Dr. Mifflin and the excellent care he provides for me.

May 06, 2014

I was disappointed in my interaction with Dr Mifflin. He brought other doctors into the exam room, and he spent the majority of my time with him talking with them, rather than to me. I left unsure as to what the long-term treatment plan is for my eyes. In addition, several remedies he suggested were in contradiction to the strategies given me by the female doctor that examined my eyes previous to Dr Mifflin coming in. He gave the impression that he was rushed and that my questions were a bother.

May 06, 2014

I tell my friends that we were treated like we were in a five star hotel.

May 06, 2014

Great experience

April 30, 2014

Keep up the good work. Always a pleasure to get the best care.

April 27, 2014

In my exam I found more information about the examination than I ever heard over the years of having my eyes examed

April 25, 2014

Dr. Mifflin is a very good doctor, I enjoy talking and seeing him when I have a appointment with him. He explains everything I ask of him to the detail.

April 24, 2014

I have great confidence in Dr. Mifflin.

April 16, 2014

Just want to comment that the entire staff is top notch and the best of the best!

April 12, 2014

have felt very comfortable through this entire experience and the service could not be improved upon.

April 11, 2014

I was impressed with the people and the clinic.

April 10, 2014

Dr Mifflin seems to be a caring person when it comes to his patients.

April 08, 2014

Dr Miflin is awesome

April 08, 2014

Very good, best I ever remember.

March 31, 2014

The MD came in on his day off , which I thought was very considerate to his patient .

March 28, 2014

My eyes were fine and I didn't require any follow up care.

March 26, 2014

I like the Moran Center and would recommend it.

March 24, 2014

Dr. Mifflin and his staff are awesome. High five to everyone.

March 18, 2014

I love Dr. Mifflin and his assistents.

March 18, 2014

It was nice having Dr Miflin describe what he was seeing and explain the differences from what the residents were seeing.

March 17, 2014

Dr. Mifflin explained everything to me and got rid of any doubts that I had about an upcoming procedure. He also explained about a serum that he wishes to try. I have a great deal more confidence after this visit.

March 15, 2014

I would not go to any other care provider for my eyes.

March 03, 2014

Dr. Mifflin is an awesome doctor.

March 01, 2014

I've already recommended someone to see your office.

February 27, 2014

Dr. Mifflin is very professional, he is (as expected) a bit rushed and can leave out details and appear a bit brusk in his patient interactions; however, i have the utmost faith in his ability to provide excellant care to all of his patients.

February 24, 2014

Still experiencing head aches from the surgery, pressure above the eye and the eye is real tender. Even when putting drops in and trying to wipe away the excess have to be extremely careful.

February 22, 2014

Entirely satisfied with care/treatment--GMCC

February 18, 2014


February 18, 2014

I feel so confident with Dr Mifflin, I would reccommend him in a minute.

February 17, 2014

very knowledgeable

February 16, 2014

My stitch was loose so I asked Dr. Mifflin about it and he said he would invlude me in the decision to remove it and we made the apointment.

February 14, 2014

very pleased. Vision much improved.

February 08, 2014

I was impressed with Dr. Mifflin and would send other people to him.

February 06, 2014


February 03, 2014

I would definitely recommend the Moran Center and Dr. Mifflin to anyone who needed eye care.

January 30, 2014

Dr. Mifflin referred me to a opthamologist in the Tucson AZ area, should I need to be seen again. Dr. Mifflin readily admitted that the experts for my particular health issue were in Philadelphia.

January 27, 2014

I had recommened someone already that also had LASIK done.

January 18, 2014

He was able to help me with my problem, and I was very happy with my visit.

January 17, 2014

All my visits to the Moran Eye Center have been very positive. I have interacted with a number of different individuals and all have been excellent professionals, kind, courteous and knowledgeable.

January 12, 2014


January 11, 2014

I discussed my absolute appreciation of Dr.Mifflin to a close friend. He is going to have his cataracts removed because of the same impression he has received from Moran Eye Center.

January 10, 2014

everything was excellent

January 10, 2014

I appreciate Dr. Mifflin and his expertise concerning my eye problems.

January 10, 2014

The provider answered every question and concern that I had

January 07, 2014

Dr. Mifflin was excellent.

December 26, 2013

I like Dr. Mifflin.

December 22, 2013

They were awesome.

December 20, 2013

Appreciated the knowledge, kindness and sense of humor.

December 20, 2013

All highly recommended

December 18, 2013

dr. mifflin is an excellent doctor

December 16, 2013

Dr. Mifflin is knowledgeable, pleasant and down to earth nature physician...playing and simple he ROCKS!!!

December 13, 2013

I love Dr. Mifflin and have referred several friends to him. He's thorough, conscientious and very professional. He's an excellent doctor.

December 04, 2013

I had a 'surprising' result after my laser treatment (following cataract surgery), and was frustrated and concerned. Between the tech and the doctor I was there 2 hours and Dr Mifflin really explained everything, did the requisite tests and checks, and just did a wonderful job easing my concerns and helping me decide what to do next. Very attentive and so much appreciated.

November 26, 2013

Dr. Mifflin is spot on in care for my visual needs

November 26, 2013


November 25, 2013

I would certainly recommend the staff and doctor to other people, especially to those I care most about.

November 24, 2013

Dr. Mifflin and the staff were excellent.

November 22, 2013


November 22, 2013

I love Dr Mifflin ! he saved my life and continues to daily.

November 21, 2013

I was very impressed with Dr. Mifflin. He explained things very well. He told me what he wanted me to do and then I needed to come back in a month to see how things settled down. Then he said he would go into more detail as to what is happening with my vision. I like the fact that he did not give me unnecessary worry until we know for sure.

November 19, 2013

very good on all counts

November 18, 2013

Dr. Mifflin has a great bedside manner - I would recommend him to anyone

November 12, 2013

Dr. Mifflin is a highly qualified professional and I am very grateful for his concern and expertise in handling my situation.

November 08, 2013

i would always recommend dr. Mifflin highly for care.

November 05, 2013

I have the highest regard for Dr Mifflin & have been completely satisfied with his care.

November 04, 2013

I didn't get the email message the Dr. was going to send me

November 01, 2013


October 31, 2013

The care and professionalism provided to me has always been excellent.

October 30, 2013

all excellent and very professional

October 26, 2013

Was very helpful in explaining risks/benefits of wound adjustment surgery and in helping me make a decision about it.

October 25, 2013

Dr. Mifflin was excellent as always about including me in the decisions about my care, medications to be taken, spending sufficient amount of time with me and letting me know the answers to all of my questions.

October 25, 2013

Dr. Mifflin is was his fellowship Doctor (name unrecalled.)

October 24, 2013

Dr. Mifflin was wonderful and helped us to understand the situation perfectly.

October 21, 2013

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Mifflin. He was the 10th opthamologist (6 of whom were at the Moran Eye Center - yes I was very persistent) I had consulted and the only one to not only give me hope but the only one who did something concrete to help restore most of my sight. As far as I am concerned, Dr. Mifflin saved my sight and my sanity (and I do not say that lightly). Dr. Mifflin is a HUGE asset to the university health care system and his patients. And my only relationship with Dr. Mifflin is that he is my Dr.

October 17, 2013

I was very happy with Dr Mifflin. He took the time to explain all aspects and options with my eyes. He used terms that I could understand and seemed to care. The best eye doctor I have seen yet regarding the issues with my eyes!

October 15, 2013

Dr. Mifflin was very friendly and explained information in terms I could understand.

October 14, 2013

My experience was totally positive and very good. I have great confidence in Dr. Mifflin and his PAs.

October 11, 2013

I trust Dr. Mifflin more than I trust any health care provider I have had. I have absolutely no complaints and would recommend him without hesitation.

October 10, 2013

Dr. Mifflin did listen to my concerns and explained what he thought was going on and what my options were. I feel well informed. He also discussed my follow up with Dr. Kent in Boise.

October 10, 2013

Very good

October 08, 2013

I would have preferred to hear what the medications may do, such as leaving a nasty taste in my mouth (from being connected to sinuses) and about discharge for specific drops.

October 07, 2013

felt confident in my choice of doctor. will recommend to others

September 30, 2013

The whole experience was really good, except the Doctor was very busy man. He did not have much time to spend with me and go over all the questions I have told the assistant during visit. He said he had to run to an open house about PRK that was about to start. Im waiting for his report to come to my home.

September 27, 2013

Dr.Miflin has been the best a patient can ask for. He is cordial and has a good attitude and explains procedures well. Knda like a good friend or neighbor .

September 20, 2013

Mark Miflin is wonderful. professional and personable.

September 20, 2013

Doctor Miflin great job.

September 11, 2013

Dr. Mifflin is very attentive and takes the time to answer my questions. He explained the procedure very well and I was very pleased with the quality of care I received. Although the healing process was explained to me, it is hard to really know what to expect until you're going through it. I am impatient with the length of time it is taking to see clearly but Dr. Mifflin said it will take time and I have nothing but faith that all will be well eventually. He really is a superb doctor!

September 09, 2013

Dr. Mifflin and his staff are great.

September 06, 2013

I would recommend this eye center and Drs. and staff to anyone.

September 02, 2013

A very good experience.

August 26, 2013

everything was outstanding - I am very pleases with my care!!!

August 21, 2013

I have always liked Dr. Mifflin, will always return.

August 21, 2013


August 16, 2013

I have the same comments about dr. Mifflin. He's GREat!

August 15, 2013

Dr. Mifflin was informative, answered my questions and was clear about a treatment plan.

August 05, 2013

My comments speaks volumes. Very happy with the service that has been provided.

August 05, 2013

I have had check ups with Dr. Mifflin for years he is a great Doctor and always has a great staff.

August 05, 2013


August 03, 2013

I've been seeing Dr Mifflin for years and I've almost always had to wait, but not like this so I guess he can be forgiven this time.

August 02, 2013

I had a great experience start to finish!

July 13, 2013

I like Dr. Mifflin because he cares about what he's doing and saying.

July 09, 2013

Excellent, Excellent

July 08, 2013

Everything was very good.

July 03, 2013

Condition explained clearly, but not its causes or effects or relation to cataract, glasses, or what to do or how common/rare it is. I had to call back to get answers, then it was clearer.

July 03, 2013

What can you say about Dr. Mifflin.....except that he is the very best. I've been seeing him since he came to SLC and have known him so long I feel like I have a good friend as well as an excellent doctor.

July 02, 2013

Maybe it was just the day we were there, but the all the medical staff seemed to be in a bad mood.

June 27, 2013

Dr. Mifflin has always been number 1 in my book along with his staff that help care for me.

June 27, 2013

It's alway reassuring to consult Dr. Mifflin

June 23, 2013

Dr. Mifflin was absolutely the best. I appreciate his skill and excellence as a surgeon and he seemed to be a very genuine person in his approach.

June 17, 2013

All physicians are impressive, compassionate, and extremely kind and caring.

June 14, 2013

I saw one to two assistants and two doctors one recent visits and all were helpful in answering all my questions.

June 13, 2013

I've already recommended this care provider to friends when they ask me about my vision correction.

June 07, 2013

He also did not rush thru and answered all my questions I had, in a manner I could understand.

June 06, 2013

Everyone was \amazing and friendly and took time with me.

June 04, 2013

I trust Dr Mifflin and trust my eye care to him.

June 03, 2013

I feel that the doctors are very good, but I'd have a hard time recommending the facility.

May 28, 2013

dr. Mifflin along with any other people that were involved with my care have always been excellent about meeting my needs. I would also like someone to get back to me about what my plans for sergery should be and if I'm still suposed to have it in june.

May 23, 2013

I cannot overstate my gratitude towards Dr. Mifflin for his excellent care.

May 15, 2013

Dr Mifland and his staff are top notch and I have already recommend him and the moran eye center to anybody that will listen to me

May 15, 2013

They are simply the BEST!

May 13, 2013

Everything was great.

May 08, 2013

Thanks for tell in me I did not need another checkup for two years instead on every year.

May 07, 2013

Dr. Mifflin is highly gifted in both the science and art of his profession. His abilities, passion, concern and empathy are obvious to his patients and staff. I have every confidence that I will enjoy the best outcome possible under the circumstances.

May 06, 2013

We always like visiting Dr. Mifflin's office. Everyone there is so kind, helpful and friendly.

April 29, 2013

Dr. Miffling was really nice he took the time to explain my condition and give me resonable solutions, I can see that he cares for all his patience. thanks again for all you help

April 26, 2013

Dr. Mifflin did a very thorough eye exam.

April 24, 2013

I guess myt only concern is that I'm not seeing better in my corrected eye and Dr. Mifflin (if I understood correctly) might have to go back in for a minor procedure to help correct the problem.

April 18, 2013

Just in for an eye exam

April 12, 2013

Like before, they always explain things very well and in a way I can understand it.

April 12, 2013

The Doctor was professional and helpful. He was also really nice.

April 10, 2013

It was rather euphoric

April 08, 2013

Dr. Mifflin was very rude to my husband when he was asking a question. He abruptly cut him off and said "I am trying to answer your question" without hearing the question. I think that he is a qualified professional but his bedside manner is not one that invites further dialog.

April 07, 2013

Always an amazing experience. I highly recommend this staff and facility to everyone.

April 07, 2013

I've already recommended Dr. Mifflin to two of my verry good friends in the blind/visually impaired community. I look forward to other visits.

March 25, 2013

These comments apply specifically to Dr Mifflin, who is a remarkable doctor who cares about his patients.

March 22, 2013

All went well.

March 17, 2013

Ever since the scheduling problem was fixed, there have been no problems.

March 15, 2013

We haven't figured out yet what the "scar" on my cornea is

March 14, 2013

I have already recommended this clinic to a friend.

March 13, 2013

I was not rushed thru, all our questions wer answered and everything was explained to me and my husband in words that we could understand.

March 13, 2013

Dr. Mifflin is an excellent physician referred by many friends.

March 12, 2013

I've only seen him twice, and so far I'm not any closer to a solution then I was when I started this journey over one year ago. Very frustrated for sure...

March 07, 2013

He keeps me going. I have so much optimism about my future as an artist and writer because of Dr. Mifflin

March 06, 2013

Dr Mifflin didn't treat me like I didn't understand anything he was talking about. He explained things in Laymans terms and provided me information that I could research on my own to better understand what was wrong with my eyes. Very happy with my visit!

March 04, 2013

I recommend the Moran Eye Institute to all my friends.

February 27, 2013

It was made clear to me what my options are.

February 22, 2013

I would come back any time to get care because I love my providers.

February 16, 2013

MD is worth the drive from St. George !!

February 15, 2013

Dr. Mifflin's assistants are always great I especially appreciate any time Mike Anderson is the attending assistant

February 12, 2013

very good

February 08, 2013

Dr. Mifflin is exceptional. I have referred several friends and family to his service. He began managing my case with a practical and enduring approach, and released my case the same way. To his credit, at no point did he substitute his sensible style in my long term care for a quick resolve. Over the last 3 years, at no time did I feel hurried off the service because of atypical results and timeliness. Clearly, Dr. Mifflin believes in a personalized approach to patient care; its not just statistical value. His professional point of view is both unique and valuable to the UU health care system as a whole. Strive to retain the best.

February 01, 2013

very good experience

February 01, 2013

Dr. Edmonds was the fellow - he was GREAT, I am grading him. Dr. Mifflin was not very personable, did not feel the need to explain the medication he was prescribing to me (said it wasn't important for me to know how they worked), and talked about me to the Dr. Edmonds as though I wasn't in the room. I hope Dr. Edmonds doesn't pick up poor patient care practices from Dr. Mifflin, though I'm confident Dr. Edmonds' is too advanced to be deterred by 6 months of poor training.

January 21, 2013

The doc indicated this was our FIRST line of defense (using artificial tears, a humidifier, hot compress and flax seed oil supplement) but he gave me no indication of what might happen next. He also did not address my question about my drooping eyelids.

January 21, 2013

Good experience.

January 17, 2013

Great visit, I left with confidence in all matters of my vision concerns.

January 15, 2013

Dr. Mifflin is by far the BEST physician I have ever seen. He is an expert, talented and has over the years truly indicated that he cares about his patients. I appreciate him very much.

January 15, 2013

I love how forward and understanding Dr. Mifflin is. He was verry nice about getting my refills transfered, questions answered about medication , questions answered about future care and telling me exactly what would and could happen with my left eye in the future. Thanks for all you do.

January 11, 2013

Dr. Mifflin is an outstanding physician. He knows his business and communicates his excitement with his work and his desire to help his patients. He almost always has a cornea fellow with him, and I am sure there is a long line of would-be cornea specialists who want to learn from him. He is slightly bashful about accepting compliments, I think because he enjoys his work so much that he dislikes being praised for it.

January 11, 2013

I have NEVER had this level of care from any doctor prior to Dr. Mifflin. You can tell he truly cares about each patient.

December 26, 2012

Dr. Mifflin takes the time necessary to inform me about what my recovery has been and where we are going from here. I never feel rushed or pressured in any way to do something. He gives me options and tells me what he recommends but allows me to make the final decision.

December 20, 2012

Dr. Miffline is amazing - he is clear and I have confidence in him

December 18, 2012

Dr. Mifflin has one of the best bed side manners I have ever encountered with a doctor. He truly cares about his patients and their healing process

December 17, 2012

Superb service

December 14, 2012

I have written a blog entry recommending this care provider to all my readers, and praising Moran Eye Center.

December 13, 2012

i love Dr. mifflin. He cares a lot about me and shows concern for my problems and lets me know what to expect and when. There are no surprises. I like that!

December 12, 2012

Dr. Mifflin discussed possible options with me concerning my blurry vision and then I had the discussion with Mr. Manalis and felt better about what is happening to my eye.

December 11, 2012

Dr. Mifflin clearly explained how my eye wasn't healing as he expected. He was keeping a close eye on it and decided at this visit to wait and see. I asked him if I was a family member, what would he tell them to do. I feel that the way he treats patients is "if they were family, what would I do or tell them." Very personable.

December 11, 2012

I have recommended family and friends to Dr. Mifflin. He speaks in a way that makes you feel fully comfortable in his skills and abilities. I was nervous going into this process but he has made me feel comfortable at every visit.

December 06, 2012

this was a very routine visit, so some of this is n/a. In previous instances, where the situation has been more involved, Dr. Mifflin and the group have been great.

December 03, 2012

This was a good trip to S L C, I received the information ,which I was seeking, in a clear,professional manner.

November 26, 2012

i just love dr. Mifflin. He is great at explaining the situation with my care and when I was worried that I couldn't get into the pain clinic during Thanksgiving holiday weekend, he gave me just the right amount of medications I would need to last me until our next visit or until he could get me into the pain clinic. also I would recomend him highly because of the sinsitive nature he has with patients that have experienced tramma, unpleasentness or any other situations that require excellent people and doctor skills.

November 21, 2012

Dr. Mifflin & other residents/fellows, etc are amazing! I will & already have highly recommended them to friends/family of mine.

November 19, 2012

I was very impressed with the professional service I received from Nathan and Dr. Mifflin in particular. Alternatives to Lasik were provided and I can't thank you enough for not just rushing into a permanent procedure that I probably would have regretted. Thanks for the suggestions and the great care.

November 17, 2012

Both the nurse and Dr. Mifflin were very attentive and too the time to explain my conditions in layman's terms. Thanks! Certainly not always the case.

November 17, 2012

i really love Dr. Mifflin. He is gentle, furm but to the point about what to expect and when to expect it and I can understand him verry well when he talks about what is going to happen and when. He listens to me and respects my decision without making derogetory statements or saying I'm just making a big deal out of nothing when I worry about things that seem small or ask a lot of questions.

November 16, 2012

I came to Dr. Mifflin as a patient because he is superior in his interaction with the patient. i have appreciated the fact that he listens carefully and responds fully to whatever questions I ask and that he lets me know just what he is seeing and what he expects in the future.

November 15, 2012

i'm glad I've changed care providers because Dr. mifflin along with who ever was helping and the nurses that were involved with my disisions with how I was to be treated after my sergery were superb in their courtesy, friendlyness, ability to dissurn problems and oversee them and excellent people skill and patients skills to guide me in the path of where to direct healing efforts for my left eye.

November 15, 2012


November 12, 2012

Great experience

November 12, 2012

It was a satisfying experience.

November 12, 2012

Very good experience.

November 05, 2012

My answers says it all..........excellent

November 05, 2012

I always appreciate Dr. Mifflin's care. He has such an awesome bedside manner, is always so kind and helpful, and seems genuinely concerned about my health and treatment and my worries. I have recommended him to many people, as I feel he is the best physician at the Moran Eye Center.

October 31, 2012

I actually enjoyed the whole experience. Thank you so much.

October 29, 2012


October 25, 2012

i would definitely recommend Dr. Mifflin to anyone. I have actually brought my son in to him as well. I have an eye condition that requires follow up and i am completely comfortable trusting Dr. Mifflin with caring for my eyes.

October 15, 2012

I didn't spend much time with Dr. Mifflin, but it wasn't needed because his fellow and tech spent enough time with me and answered my questions.

October 01, 2012

You all are wonderful!

October 01, 2012

I had a good experience as usual

October 01, 2012

Dr. Mifflin was great! Made sure any & all of my questions were answered & was in the room within a minute of me being put in the room.

September 24, 2012

I have had a cornea transplant and cataract surgery and been a patient at the Moran Eye Clinic since 1991. Doctors and staff are excellent.

September 24, 2012

Everyone was genuinely concerned.

September 18, 2012

Will highly recommend to others.

September 17, 2012

Dr Mifflin and his resident were great. I really enjoyed my experience.

September 17, 2012

Dr.Miffing was just great. He did some laser and i haven't seen that good out of that eye in years!!!Thank you all so much!!!! It was a great experience!!!!

September 17, 2012

Meeting with Dr. Mifflin and his technician, Nathan, was by far one of the best experiences I've had at any physician's office - and I'm a physician myself and would hope that I can have a clinic that runs as well as this.

September 15, 2012

They were all great.

September 10, 2012

Felt comfortable with the competance of the care providers.

September 10, 2012

The person doing my husband's workup & Dr Mifflin were excellent.

September 07, 2012

I have been a patient of Dr Mifflin's for several years. He did my cataract surgery and has followed me since then. I would recommend him to anyone who asked. I would like to name all the other staff members that assisted but I did not write them down. Everyone was super.

September 04, 2012

Dr. Mifflin and both residents were very happy to share and explain everything.

September 03, 2012

Very confident in Dr. Mifflins work

September 03, 2012

always good care

August 30, 2012

I've had much better experiences in the past with customer service. But the medical services are always excellent.

August 30, 2012

Dr. Mifflin knows his stuff and I'm thrilled to be able to have him as my eye doc.

August 27, 2012

Dr Mifflin was very honest in letting me know that I should not expect a huge difference in my vision if I decided to fill an upgraded prescription. He said I should probably not go to the expense. I appreciated that very much.

August 27, 2012

Dr. Mifflin was recommended to me by a neighbor of mine. I was pleased with his expertise, but didn't like so much being done by others in training. I wonder if I get cataract surgery, who will really perform it.

August 24, 2012

Dr. Mifflin has been our eye doctor for several years now and is consistently "the best"!!! I have special concerns because of very complicated allergies and chemical sensitivities and, as in my previous surgery, he works with me to address those concerns.

August 22, 2012

I have complete trust in Dr. Mifflin. He takes good care of me!!!

August 17, 2012

I am "very" satisfied with the care and concern shown me by Dr Mifflin and the trainees that often accompany him. I am so grateful for the use of my eyes.

August 17, 2012

I have recommended Dr. Mifflin to others and when they have seen him they have been pleased with their experience.

August 17, 2012

I always have a good experience at the Moran and especially in Dr Mifflin Clinic

August 13, 2012

Dr. Miflin is always a great experience!

August 10, 2012

Dr Mifflin is the best, he listens, talks and I feel complete confidence in his treatment of my eyes. The 2 doctors that were with him at my appointment were very courteous, polite, very helpful and like Dr. Mifflin they were genuinely concerned about my eyes. Thank you to all!

August 09, 2012

Dr. Mifflin is an excellent doctor. I really appreciate the care and concern he shows his patients. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Again, I have no problem waiting as I know the patients are getting the needed care.

August 06, 2012

All my questions were answered and explanations were given . Med changes were written down

August 06, 2012

Dr. Mifflin is a great doctor and I would recommend him to others. Always a good experience.

August 04, 2012

Dr Mifflin was able to cauterize my right eye so something good was accomplished today

July 30, 2012

Everyone was great

July 18, 2012

Amazing service as always!

July 16, 2012

the best

July 16, 2012

I was so scared about my sight. When we left all my fears were gone.

July 15, 2012

I think that Dr Mifflin is very knowledgeable, but he needs to learn some social skills. I have never felt like a person around him, just another patient, a number. Someone else he needs to get done with. He never looks me in the eye. He is in a hurry.

July 12, 2012

Dr. Mifflin is an excellent surgeon. He recommended that I wait on surgery because my eyes looked like they were changing, and my case was a bit more complex because of an amblyopia and slightly asymmetrical eye(s). After a year of tests (I did 3-4 roun

July 04, 2012

It was a good experience for the circumstance!

July 03, 2012

Dr. Mifflin is an excellent doctor. He demands the best from his assistants and he gets it. He is highly recommended.

July 02, 2012

Dr Mifflin is an excellent physician & shows a great deal of concern with each of his patients.

July 02, 2012

Would have liked to have more explaination about options for lens implants given to me by Dr.

June 29, 2012

Appreciate their interest in me as a whole

June 23, 2012

Everything went very well and and I understand what treatment options I have because they were explained to me so that i understood his recommendations.

June 12, 2012

Dr. Mifflin is very easy to talk to. He is always polite and concerned. He seems very knowledgeable and I have complete confidence in him.

June 08, 2012

very good experience

June 06, 2012

Explained what is going on with my eyes. Seemed to care about my needs especially finances and expense. I did sort feel that maybe it might be better fo go to another Doctor.

June 04, 2012

I have found Dr. Mifflin to always be calm, confident, reasssuring, kind, informative and able to provide what I need and to talk with me as much as needed so I understand everything I need to know. I hope those in charge grasp what a great physician they have in Dr. Mifflin. I have worked with 12 or 13 ophthamologists in the past 20 yeats and Dr. Mifflin EASILY ranks ahead of them all.

May 07, 2012

I have always had an excellent experience with Dr Mifflin that is why I continue to see him

May 01, 2012

I am very happy with my doc and his office staff

May 01, 2012

totally noteworthy with amazing results

April 30, 2012

(I already did recommend her to someone else.)

April 26, 2012

My whole family has appointments with Dr. Miflin

April 26, 2012

Too bad that you don't have an "excellent" on this evaluation.

April 23, 2012

Very good experience.

April 19, 2012

Dr. Mark Mifflin is outstanding, I would wait to be able to see him even if my appointment had to be weeks out

April 17, 2012

Very professional and concerned about my time

April 12, 2012

Excellent care! :)

April 12, 2012

I felt like "my condition" was being treated, but I, as a person was not being treated or looked at as a whole.

April 10, 2012

The whole office experience was exceptional. I felt very comfortable and confident.

April 10, 2012

I would highly recommend this office and provider to others.

April 10, 2012


April 10, 2012

I feel very blessed to have been able to come to Dr Mifflin and his staff.

April 09, 2012

doctor didn't discuss what was needed and what test should have been given.

April 02, 2012

Dr. Mifflin uses language I can understand and so do his assistants. He and his assistants are thorough and thoughtful. I was impressed at the exceptionally fine equipment they use in the clinic, to provide patients with the very best possible care.

March 30, 2012

It is a friendly office and I have never had to wait very long. Dr. Mifflin answers any questions I might have and explained that we are just watching to make certain no problem arises.

March 29, 2012

I really appreciated the explanations about medications, procedures, the process and what to expect- along with the personal experiences you and your staff told me about. That information is invaluable to a patient.

March 29, 2012

Exam and conversation were thorough and made me feel confident in the care I was receiving. I did not feel that the staff was hurried but very patient.

March 22, 2012

I had a specialist at IHC for nine months that did not say anything about my condition. I changed to Moran Eye Center and went from Dr. Kimball to Dr. Mifflin at another facility that very day for diagnosis. I knew within the visit that I had a herpes virus in my eye and was allergic to the preservatives in the eye drops. I was given new eye drops at the Moran Pharmacy. From then on I began to get a hold of the virus with Dr. Mifflin's care. Recently, I had a cornea transplant from Dr. Mifflin. He is THE VERY BEST.

March 20, 2012

I would like to know how long it will take to heal. I forgot to ask and it was not mentioned, although the Dr. said to use drops for a week...

March 19, 2012

Dr. Mifflin treats three other family members. i would highly recomend him.

March 15, 2012

Dr. Mifflin did not have my file available to refer to, therefore her could not compare my current eye diagnosis with my previous eye diagnosis. This was very frustrating. Additionally, I felt like Dr. Mifflin questioned the reason I came in to see him. He stated I had Lasik done "several years ago", when in fact it was just two years ago. Again, because he did not have the file in front of him, he said he could not agree and/or disagree with that. I would have thought that because I had a confirmed appointment with Dr. Mifflin, my file would have been made available to him to refer to. Dr. Mifflin had a resident with him and I agreed to have the resident there. However, rather than talking to me, he seemed to be using medical terms that the resident would understand rather than helping me understand what he was talking about. I had to ask him to explain things to me on several occasions. Finally, he asked that I come back in six months, after giving me a contact lense to wear in my right eye. I felt like my concern of having very blurry vision was "pushed aside." I would like

March 13, 2012

I did not have any problems understnding what is was that they were doing or what I had to do. It is very clear what I needed and what they wanted me to do.

March 13, 2012

we already have recommended him.

March 12, 2012

I wish Dr. Mifflin spent more time with me.

March 08, 2012

Dr. Mifflin is always calm and professional. I really appreciate his experience. He has always been great at giving me options for treatment and explaining them really well. I may not like hearing that my eyes aren't what they used to be--but he makes me feel better about it!

March 08, 2012

very good !!!

March 06, 2012

Dr Mifflin is knowledgeable and calm

March 05, 2012

I felt all the people (technician? and resident and Dr. Mifflin) were very thorough and answered all my questions

March 05, 2012

he was friendly and took the time to tell us what was going to take place.

March 02, 2012

Explanation of my concerns were met

February 28, 2012

I would recommend this facility to everyone. And I do!

February 28, 2012

Dr Mifflin was very friendly and informative.

February 23, 2012

Dr. Petty was great! Very thorough, very kind, and very helpful and understanding of my eye pains

February 21, 2012

I should have asked for time to write a list of the new meds, their times/frequency--all was explained but I often forget new things to do.

February 16, 2012

Dr. Mifflin and staff were very considerate and informative about my concerns and questions. They were patient and spent all the time I needed to feel confident about my treatment.

February 14, 2012

Dr. Mifflin has always been very attentive and ready to investigate things and try out different analyses or adjustments to improve my vision. He explains things very well and readily shows me results of tests and explains what they mean.

February 14, 2012

My major care provider for this visit was a young woman. I think she was on a fellowship. She did a great job. Dr. Mifflin came in after she was finished and re-checked her work which was fine.

February 14, 2012

Most of my time was spent with others then the Dr Mifflen

February 10, 2012

I have recommended Dr. Mifflin to others.

February 09, 2012

I would recommend Dr. Mifflin to any one with eye problems.

February 09, 2012

Dr. Mifflin was very courteous and had been recommended to me by my brother, Frank Long. He had been impressed with the way Dr. Mifflin had taken care of him and recommended him highly. I thought he was very thoughtful in the way he explained the procedure.

February 09, 2012

Dr. Mifflin and his assistant were very good at instructing, commenting, and explaining any concerns and questions I had toward the upcoming surgery and procedure. Thanks a Ton!!

February 09, 2012

Special accommodations were by Dr. Mifflin for surgical follow-up due to my crazy work schedule. Comforting to know that he was looking out for my best interest and willing to help!

February 07, 2012

Very good

February 06, 2012


February 03, 2012

I was given outstanding treatment during my visit. The education and information that I recieved from Dr. Mifflin as well as his nurse, Esther was invaluable. I feel very confident that Dr. Mifflin and his staff understand my condition and have given much thought and research on the best way we should advance in my treatment. It is very comforting to know that I have such outstanding people who are very knowlegable to my issues and to be on my side fighting for what is in my best interest as we move forward in my care. My vision depends on them. I'm comforted to know I am in such good hands.

January 30, 2012

No problems...Dr. Mifflin is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to.

January 30, 2012

After two years of frustration and trying conservative methods, Dr. Mifflin did listen to me and saw how frustrated I was. We did talk about my options and I left the office with a definitive answer and finally happy with what is to happen next

January 24, 2012

I was repeatedly interrupted by the doctor whenever I tried to ask a question. I felt he was annoyed by me and that my pain and bothersome symptoms were practically ignored when I tried to point them out. I felt he had no sympathy for my discomfort and just wrote out several prescriptions but I left actually feeling worse about my situation. He may be smart but he could use a little compassion and learn to listen without interrupting.

January 21, 2012


January 13, 2012

I felt it was unprofessional for Dr. Mifflin to speak poorly about another doctor in front of me. That stuff needs to take place behind closed doors and, please, not in front of patients.

January 12, 2012

I have confindence in Dr. Mifflin's abilities and appreciate his explination of current eye condition and what to expect and look for in the future.

January 10, 2012


January 10, 2012

again, excellence service.

January 09, 2012

It takes the doctor too long to come to the room so a routine visit last time was way more than an hour! This time I chose not to see the doctor at all because the assistants seemed confident. I like the Doctor but not worth waiting such a long time for a follow up to what others just said.

January 03, 2012

Very good experience

January 03, 2012

My experience with the staff and the Doctor was wonderful. Other than the wait time, which is a built in necessiey, all was well.
