Complete confidence in the care given and concern for our Health.

March 31, 2014

I was very pleased with the whole experience.

March 17, 2014

Waited forever to see him for a very brief time.

March 17, 2014

Dr. Crandall s excellent, he makes me feel like I'm family

March 17, 2014

Excellent in all respects

March 17, 2014

Dr. Alan Crandall is absolutely "The Best"!!!!!!!!!!

March 13, 2014

Dr Crandle was refered to me and I would be happy to do the same

March 13, 2014

Recently Dr. Alan Crandall has performed a Trabeculectomy with a shunt on each eye. He spent a longer time doing the surgeries taking special care that they were done correctly and safely. He knew of my medical problems and was able to successfully work with them. After the surgeries he has seen me often and has taken special care to insure that the healing was successful.

March 12, 2014

Awesome as always

March 10, 2014

I only go to the world renown eye providers. I would not go anywhere else!

March 02, 2014

I have great confindence in Dr Crandall and have recommending him to others.

February 26, 2014

Having been through this with my other eye, I had a good idea this time and was prepared. I really liked Dr. Crandall although his time spent with me is always short (too short). He worked with my disability (hearing loss) and remembered who I was which is important to me as seeing a doctor is a stressful experience no matter what kind of visit it is and allows me to focus on the appt and what he is saying more. I will recommend him and the Moran Eye Center always as my experiences have been good. I am impressed that Dr. Crandall sends out these surveys as it keeps the patients feeling involved in their care there. I have never experienced that with any other provider that I could recall.

February 24, 2014

Very positive experience.

February 23, 2014

Excellent. Dr. Crandall is the best!!

February 17, 2014

This was the most positive experience I have ever had from an Ophthalmologist and office staff and support group.

February 16, 2014

we feel verry lucky to have Dr, crandel

February 15, 2014

Incredible doctor! Trust him with my life. So grateful for the extra time he so willingly spends to answer my questions so thoroughly and inspiringly!!

February 13, 2014

Dr. Crandall explained clearly what to excepted for my surgery coming up this year. And ask when I feel comfortable to set the appointment instead of quick appointment more sooner or later since it may conflict my academic schedule.

February 11, 2014

I had an assistant, a resident, a medical transcriptionist, and Dr. Crandall. I filled out the question for Dr. Crandall. He was excellent, didn't stereotype me, addressed my somewhat complex questions about correcting to read music under symphony conditions, can't think of a thing I'd change. His crew were also very good. The only reason I wouldn't recommend him to others is that I don't want his clinic to get busier!

February 10, 2014

I really appreciate the outstanding care I received for my cataract surgery.

February 09, 2014

I like Dr. Crandall. He did my other eye which was my good eye that had viable vision. He did a good job on that eye. That heavily influenced my decision to come back sooner than later to have him do my poor eye that had much less viable vision. I appreciated the fact that he has experience operating on patients who have only one eye to function with. I further appreciated the fact that he understood how important it was to me that I be able to use my poor eye even if it was for depth perception and light. A lot of doctors in the past tended to blow off that eye when giving me eye care (they would provide corrective lenses for it but above that no) and he seemed to support me on my desire to care for my eyes. This was related to catarats (I had catarats in both eyes). So, his care and support mattered to me and in the very brief time that I had with him, he seemed convey that in a reasonable manner.

February 08, 2014

I have already recommended someone

February 02, 2014

all good

February 01, 2014

Very good

January 16, 2014

If you have questions about how to take care of the eyes, after the surgery they very helpful.

January 05, 2014

dr. had been running late because of an emergency , but did not rush me. spent a lot of time with me.

December 27, 2013

I felt that everything about my tests and care were explained in a friendly, clear manner. My questions were answered.

December 16, 2013

I have been driving out of state to see Dr. Crandall for 25 years. That should explain my feelings.

December 07, 2013

Has the reputation as best in the U.S. if not the world, and lived up to it in every way

December 06, 2013

Dr. Crandall is always professional, friendly, a good listener and very clear about instructions. I feel very fortunate to have him as my care provider!

November 25, 2013

A very positive experience. Such a friendly and efficient staff.

November 23, 2013

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Crandell

November 14, 2013

Even though the wait time was very so long I wouldn't go to another Doctor......I have a lot of cofidence in Dr Crandall.

October 21, 2013

All Good

October 09, 2013

I had received a treatment recommendation from another provider and the Moran/staff dealt with it exceptionally well. I left with a significant sense of relief.

October 04, 2013

All of the staff were delightful and seemed competent. A "fellow" did most of the instruction. Techs most of the eval. Steve, office manager, did measuring. I saw Dr. Crandall for less than five minutes. It was very brief. I felt a bit like I was on a fast moving assembly line. Would have preferred more time with Dr. Crandall.

October 03, 2013

Very skilled surgeon and one who has done a lot of good in the world.

September 30, 2013

Dr. Crandall, is the first to prescribed the best lens prescription I have had in my 40 years of wearing glasses. I needed to go with a tri-focal, I acclimated to my prescription in under an hour and have had the best clarity than I have ever had before in my lifetime of wearing eyewear. Thank you Dr. Crandall!

September 11, 2013

Dr. Crandall was obviously extremely knowledgeable and experienced. He was also able to communicate and terms I could understand. I had a calm confidence that I was definitely with the best doctor. I very highly recommend him.

September 10, 2013

Dr Alan Crandall is a fantastic person/doctor

September 09, 2013

Dr. Crandall always takes time to explain things and is kind and compassionate.

September 01, 2013

Dr. Crandall is always good to talk with me and explain what is happening with my eyes.

August 26, 2013

I have recommended the Moran to a number of my colleagues and friends who ask about cataracts and other eye issues.

August 23, 2013

The doctor and his associates were excellent.

August 19, 2013

Dr. Crandall is always outstanding; simply one of the best physicians I've ever known from a patient perspective. I have also been very impressed with the residents I've been treated by; they are consistently good and patient-focused.

Dr Crandall explained a very clearly of what I need to know and what to excepted. I like his positive aspect and able to answer my and mom's questions that we need to be aware of.

August 08, 2013

god

August 06, 2013

The optician who did my refraction was very good; she didn't just ask "better or worse" and spit it out, but went on to explain what she was adjusting in my prescription and why. I liked her approach very much. Dr. Crandall's resident (Dr. Martin, I think--I forgot to get a card) did a very good job of explaining what he was looking for when he examined my eyes, and talked thru my questions about corrective surgery technologies, and my concerns about developing cataracts. And Dr. Crandall, as always, was very clear in his answers to all my questions. I'm very glad to be back in Salt Lake, and he can be my eye doctor again.

August 02, 2013

appreciate the insight

August 02, 2013

NONE BAD

August 02, 2013

Great doctor and helpers.

July 23, 2013

I WOULD GIVE A HIGHER RATING FOR MY CONFIDENCE IN DR. CRANDALL, BUT THERE WASN'T ONE HIGHER THAN VERY GOOD

July 23, 2013

Very impressed with the knowledge and consideration on a personal basis.

July 22, 2013

These questions are answered referring to Dr. Crandall only. He is the best doctor I've had with my glaucoma!

July 22, 2013

Dr. Crandall, spent a lot of time with me and explained my condition and made sure he had answered all my questions and offered to write my doctor (since this was a second opinion) a letter. I was very impressed.

July 15, 2013

The entire appointment was handled in a timely and friendly but professional manner.

July 15, 2013

Dr. Crandall was great in explaining procedures and answering my questions.

July 11, 2013

Dr. Crandall was very clear in his explanation of my condition and what the care options are.

July 08, 2013

He is the Michael Jordan of cataract surgeons!!!

July 01, 2013

Excellent doctors and staff.

June 27, 2013

Since this was an appointment for a second opinion, my current Doctor (Robert Wooldridge of the Utah Eye Foundation) knew of the high standards of DR Crandall. I expected nothing but the highest quality of care and service that I was given.

June 25, 2013

Dr. Crandall is an excellent physician but i really did not feel comfortable with what I was doing when he walked out of the the room. I kept asking questions to the Assistance and was able to come up with the confidence I needed prior to having the surgery. I feel very confident with him as a surgeon based on past history and others recommendations and I would recommend him to anyone who needed cataract surgery.

June 24, 2013

Excellent care and time spent with patient.

June 17, 2013

THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE WAS EXCELLENT. I WILL REFER FRIENDS TO USE THIS SERVICE.

June 17, 2013

I have already given the number out to some people.

June 13, 2013

Dr. Crandall has been so good to help me understand my eye condition.

June 13, 2013

Excellent care

June 10, 2013

Dr. Crandall is excellent...always giving me information to keep me furthering my education about my condition.

June 10, 2013

good

June 10, 2013

I love Dr. Crandall. He made my vision perfect by performing cataract surgery last year. He is outgoing, kind, good at explaning options. I am very greatful for my eyesight being restored. I would recommend him to anyone.

June 06, 2013

I felt very good about this whole experience. Dr. Crandall was very confident and was very reassuring about the surgery outcome given some of the risks. Dr. Crandall's assistant (Fellow) was also very delightful and explained some of the options. Dana was very thorough and professional. I felt like she had some interest in my case. Overall, I feel like I'm in good hands with the best doctor, staff and facilities.

June 04, 2013

Very good

June 04, 2013

Care provider is the best in the world

June 04, 2013

My appointment was to discuss options and obtain information. But, I felt a little pressured to pursue surgery and a little confused about why that would be the best option given other eye conditions I have.

June 03, 2013

Because I had some extra concerns at this visit, the care provider took extra time to understand my concerns, to discuss the problems and explain options. I felt I left with a good understanding of the issues and what I needed to do next.

June 03, 2013

The whole experience reflected a high degree of organization and professionalism!

May 28, 2013

Dr. Crandall and his staff are definitely a First Class organization.

May 28, 2013

Dr. Crandall is what every physician should be: highly intelligent and experienced, conscietious, and caring. What a terrific doctor!

May 27, 2013

dr Crandall is the best

May 20, 2013

good staff and doctors.

May 19, 2013

Excellent

May 18, 2013

Dr. Crandall and his staff are the best.

May 17, 2013

Dr. Alan Crandall and his staff have always given me first class, efficient and effective care.

May 15, 2013

My wife and I have seen Dr. Crandall at least twice a year for over 10 years. We could not have a better provider! We have extreme confidence in Dr. Crandall and his staff. The Best!

May 13, 2013

IT IS USUALLY VERY GOOD BUT NOT THIS LAST TIME

May 08, 2013

Will return to and recommend Dr. Alan Crandall as long as he is in practice. Excellent care for our entire family and referred friends for 20 years.

April 29, 2013

excellent

April 17, 2013

Dr. Crandall is your ultimate professional. He knows what he's doing, and he has a nice friendly manner.

April 17, 2013

Dr. Crandall and his staff were very thoughtful and caring.

April 15, 2013

good

April 12, 2013

good

April 08, 2013

Dr. Crandall is kind and caring. He always goes the extra mile!

April 06, 2013

Dr. Crandall "bedside manner" and superior knowledge and skill gave me great confidence and ease in dealing with my fears.

March 25, 2013

Alan Crandall is an outstanding surgeon. I'm lucky to have him on the case.

March 22, 2013

It involved consultation where I felt that I was an integral part of a professional discussion.

March 21, 2013

Dr. Crandall is the best in everything

March 18, 2013

6 month's ago when I was at the clinic I was completely on the outside, about my diagnosis, the resident said one thing, that gave me the impression that I would be blind in short time and the DR told me that things looked good and I should come back in 6 months and they would follow my progress. this time the Dr had a foreign resident practioneer with him and I learned more from their conversation about my care and control, & probable treatment, than I have known in the past 3 years.

March 15, 2013

All very good

March 15, 2013

Dr. Crandall is superb in all ways!

March 15, 2013

Dr. Crandall is amazing!

March 12, 2013

Both visits were wonderful. Everything explained and everyone very friendly and caring.

March 11, 2013

Alan is wonderful. Easy to talk to. Only hesitation I recommending him is that he's always hugely busy.

March 11, 2013

All of the actual care providers are excellent. Dr, Crandall has superior skills in the area of interpersonal relations. The young Dr. trainees are a little stiff and because they are there to learn they ask questions and do procedures that are repeated again by the doctor in charge of the case. They seem stiff and ill at ease. or perhaps just very focused and earnest. I enjoy having a small part in the learning process of young doctors.

March 06, 2013

Dr Crandall did not address black spots I advised that I was seeing 2 days before my visit to the clinic. This was an emergency visit. It was not a regularly scheduled appointment. I was very pleased to have been worked in to Dr. Crandell's scedule at the last minute.

February 18, 2013

I am very impressed with Dr. Crandall. His ability to make you feel comfortable was very good. I feel very confident having him as my care provider. I would recommend him to any person needing eye care.

February 18, 2013

I have had excellent care from Dana, Dr. Crandall and everyone else at the Moran. I've recommended your professional care to others.

February 15, 2013

dr,Crandel is the best in the field we are fortunate we have him for our dr.

February 08, 2013

Dr Crandall put my wife's mind at ease re her concern over possible macular degeneration which runs in her family. Her eyes were ok which made her much relieved.

January 10, 2013

Dr. Crandall always takes time to explain information/procedures in language I can understand. He is always personable and courtious. He goes the extra mile!

January 10, 2013

Good experience.

January 01, 2013

Cheerful, Courteous, courteous, etc. We appreciate the care we receive there.

December 17, 2012

Far above most facilities

December 16, 2012

I was pleased with the appointment.

December 12, 2012

Really positive

December 11, 2012

At 96 I appreciate the care and confidence of knowing I will receive quality caring assistance. Thank you.

December 06, 2012

I would not consider going to anyone else.

December 04, 2012

Again, should be excellent

November 29, 2012

Again, EVERYONE was very courteous, friendly, helpful, and were truly professional.

November 28, 2012

Dr Crandall has been our eye care provider for many years--We enjoy our visits to him very much --We admire his work and have several mutual friends

November 13, 2012

Dr. Crandall seemed in a hurry, but I understand. He had a lot of surgeries to do. It's fine. An intern did my IV and missed my vein twice. It hurt. This too, I understand. It's all good.

November 12, 2012

good

November 12, 2012

very good experience

November 12, 2012

I appreciate Dr. Crandall explaining my care and answering my questions. I didn't feel he was rushing to get to another patient - that my case was important.

November 12, 2012

I have had multi-year visits with this doctor for 20 years and trust my life to him. He is outstanding in every way.

November 08, 2012

It is a delight to be seen by Dr. Crandall and his staff. I feel they know me and my condition well. They always make me feel like they are pleased to see me and interested in addressing my needs.

November 08, 2012

good

November 06, 2012

Dr. Alan Crandall and his staff are the best. I know I am able to have my eye sight, because of the surgeries performed by Dr. Crandall.

November 06, 2012

good

November 05, 2012

AS I SAID BEFORE, CONSISTANTLY EXCELLENT

November 01, 2012

Dr. Crandall's staff is always very friendly, courteous and helpful. It is a priviledge to be seen in his clinic.

October 29, 2012

very good

October 29, 2012

good

October 23, 2012

My results have come out very good despite the uncertainties associated with my particular case. I attribute this success to the experience and skill of Dr. Crandall.

October 22, 2012

commendable in all regards

October 22, 2012

Dr. Crandall and his team are excellent!

October 09, 2012

My experiences have always been good.

October 01, 2012

Perhaps its would be better for the doctor to accompany the resident so that the info is heard directly.

September 26, 2012

I feel the care has been delivered professionally and with expertise.

September 25, 2012

Dr. Crandall is very knowledgeable and caring!

September 24, 2012

Thank you very much for my new eyes. The experience of seeing excellently without glasses has been wonderful.

September 17, 2012

Outstanding

September 05, 2012

Dr. Crandall is the best Opthalmologist who has ever treated my eyes ! He is knowledgeable, & kindly and able to make me feel confident that whatever is wrong can be taken care of...

September 03, 2012

I have seen this Dr for a number of years end he is very experienced. Sometimes I think I understand more than I do, but I'm an RN and work in the medical field and it seems that most Dr's are guilty of this to a certain degree.

August 15, 2012

Talking with Dr Crandall was like talking to an old friend. He put us at ease immediately.

August 13, 2012

Dr. Crandall and Julie are the best. They both make me feel like I am the only one at the time. This is so different from many other doctors offices. Other offices could take a lead from Dr. Crandall's office and staff on how to treat their patients.

August 12, 2012

Dr. Crandall's is an extremely talented and dedicated professional.

August 06, 2012

Dr. Crandall is the Best !

July 29, 2012

I will never go back to my other eye doctor. I was thrilled with the courtesy and concern Dr. Crandell gave me. The assistants were wonderful also. They gave me confidence that I had chosen an excellent facility and eye doctor. I have already shared m

July 25, 2012

Dr. Crandall showed much concern, but was also willing to take the time with me to explain the next steps. He worked me into his schedule because I was from out of town.

July 23, 2012

This was a good experience and the care providers were very careful to help me choose the best solutions to the surgery I will be having. I feel comfortable with the decisions that I need to make because of the consideration and explanations of the issue

July 23, 2012

I had a great experience. I feel good about proceedures recommended and hopeful I will have better vision for a long time still.

July 23, 2012

They don't get any better than Dr. Crandall

July 23, 2012

Very good experience

July 23, 2012

Dr. Crandall was extremely helpful, answering all my questions and providing me with an excellent evaluation. I would highly recommend him and all the people who work with him.

July 22, 2012

I have a history with the clinic and have received outstanding care over many years.

July 16, 2012

You guys are tops!

July 12, 2012

I love dr. Crandall and how he is So informed about the latest treatments available to me. He is a wonderful doctor. It's the only reason I put up with the wait time.

July 12, 2012

Dr. Crandall is superb. And he remembers what my eyes are like from visit to visit.

July 09, 2012

Dr. Crandall is excellent. I have complete trust in him.

July 09, 2012

I work 2 to 3 days a week at LDS Hospital as a house keeper and I really liked how clean your rooms were and how the health care providers took time to make sure everything was clean and sanitized before using equipment that was used by other patients. M

July 09, 2012

This visit was the fastest appointment I have ever had at the eye center even with the check in wasted time.

July 02, 2012

Dr Crandall is friendly, courteous, and I have the utmost confidence in his care. He is extremely qualified. I admire and appreciate his work with training, teaching and support in medical clinics around the world.

July 02, 2012

Dr. Crandall is the best!

June 19, 2012

Dr. Crandall is an exceptional doctor in all ways. His explanations are clear and thorough. He has a wonderful personality. We are so impressed with all the Humanitarian work he does!

June 19, 2012

Dr. Crandall has been my doctor for almost 30 years. He is oustanding, and has a great personality!!

June 18, 2012

Again, I was treated with great sensitivity to the whole person---not like a diagnosis or eye ball. Recent experiences in other offices had left me disillusioned: humanity had been removed completely from medical practice. A person was nothing more than the sure promise of an insurance reimbursement. A person was categorized and relegated to a stereotype. So opposite was my experience at Moran that I continue to be in a state of awe and disbelief.

June 18, 2012

Dr Crandall and staff are very professional and caring.

June 12, 2012

I have sent my parents and a good friend

June 06, 2012

when anyone asks me i always tell them do not let any one look at your eyes but the moran eye center

June 04, 2012

I was pleased how the care provider spoke directly to me. My husband and daughter were with me but it was me they spoke too. My family was ask if they had any questions and were included in the interview. I feel it was well done.

May 18, 2012

Excellent, as usual!

May 18, 2012

Extremely good provider.

May 07, 2012

always good

May 02, 2012

I was treated with respect and friendliness. I never feel rushed.

May 02, 2012

Dr. Crandall is the best!! Always share useful and important information with me

May 02, 2012

Dr Crandall is great!!!

May 02, 2012

I liked Dr. Crandall very much. He was also very accommodating with my profound hearing loss and took the time to answer my questions. I could tell that he relaxed more with me once he had seen me a few times which is natural. I think even my husband liked Dr. Crandall. I could not have asked nor selected a better doctor to be recommended for my particular eye care (catarat). He was recommended by Dr. Hartnett.

April 30, 2012

Dr. Crandall is very busy and I appreciate the time he takes to answer all of my questions.

April 27, 2012

Dr. Crandall is outstanding He works extremely hard, is so pleasant and compassionate and will do anything he possibly can to provide the best of care.

April 09, 2012

didn't feel rushed felt like i had time to share any concerns and have questions answered

April 05, 2012

Dr. Crandall ROCKS! He is so knowledgable, caring and concerned and a really nice man. He turned around a terrible experience I had with Dr. Ambati.

April 02, 2012

I am extremely confident in Dr. Crandall and his staff and trust him completely with my surgery.

March 29, 2012

Dr. Crandall provides excellent care and are always friendly and informative.

March 29, 2012

Because Dr Crandall was running late, I felt a little shortchanged that I did not get to talk to him more. I am not sure what questions I might've asked, having done research on the internet previously, but to the surgeon, I would advise a little more time and not be quite so hasty to leave the room and let the technician as good as she was, just because one is running late. I am trusting my eye to a doctor and reassurance would've been appreciated. Don't cheat the patient out of your time because you are late is what I would say. I could tell the doctor was ready to leave the room after his initial check on my eyes and let the tech finish up. It took me some months to finally take this step (Jan until March).

Dr. Crandall and his staff were the best, I was treated with courtesy and care, all of my concerns were addressed. I will return the next time that treatment is required and recomend your facility to all.

Dr. Crandall came highly recommended and I will do the same.

Time with doctor was very brief compared to total time at office, 10 minutes in 2.5 hour visit.
