Dr Teske scheduled my surgery the day after my clinic appt. Registration was informative & quickly done.PA the day of surgery was friendly, very upbeat & very informative. about my surgery. She put me at ease.

January 06, 2014

Most time spent with the resident, but Dr. Teske confirmed all information through questions and examination

January 06, 2014

I have a great confidence and respect for all health care providers I have met at the Moran Center. Other medical professionals could take note and copy from them.

January 02, 2014

I like DR. Teske very much. I am fortunate that I get to see him. I prefer him to give me my injection

December 19, 2013

Dr. Teske is simply the best.

December 15, 2013

The resident that came in was the person that I graded here. Dr Teske would rank the top in all of these areas.

December 15, 2013

Dr Teske's team is fantastic!

December 01, 2013

Excellent!

November 15, 2013

They were very nice and friendly, even though I told them a don't have medical insurance and for me that's awesome because they shoed concern and care in helping me out. Thanks!

October 23, 2013

I always recommend the Moran to people who ask about my treatment.

October 01, 2013

good experience

September 30, 2013

It was a very busy day and the provider could have had information relayed to me by staff but he came into the room to speak with me directly and answered my questions. Much appreciated.

September 30, 2013

We cannot in all honestly send any of our friends to your center. 4 times is just too much. We could and would take a small additional charge but this is too much.

September 26, 2013

a very gratifying experience overall

September 19, 2013

Very Good Experience!

September 09, 2013

Very Good

September 06, 2013

August 30, 2013

I have already recommended dr.teske to friends.

August 21, 2013

I trust my sight and life to Dr. Teske, he's the best.

August 15, 2013

Could not have been better.

August 12, 2013

I do NOT like Dr. Michael Teske and would gladly walk out on an appointment before I would allow him to be the one to administer my eye injection. This is based on my experience of having him administer the very first eye injection I got. I have had five so far. His was by far the worst and he does not seem to be open to suggestion at all or to listening to constructive criticism. I was told his is the very best in his field. My response: I wonder how on earth he ever managed to come to be considered that. Not in my book he isn't! And some of the nurses seem resentful of hearing anything even remotely negative about him. What, Iâ¿¿m not entitled to my own opinion just because I donâ¿¿t like him? Also, re #10, I would NOT recommend Teske to anyone! Most of the others I would recommend. He only administered one injection, for which I am EXTREMELY grateful indeed! And most of the nurses were pretty considerate with the distinct exception of just one.

June 17, 2013

Outstanding

June 10, 2013

I always reccomend Moran to friends & clients

June 07, 2013

Dr. Teske was excellent - a good listener, obviously highly competent, communicated well with me.

June 04, 2013

I'm going back today

May 26, 2013

Dr Teske and his staff are great.

May 17, 2013

This seemed to be a very busy day and my concerns by addressed by the nurse and resident; Dr. Teske came in briefly to say we would continue in 8 weeks. This was fine; there were no problems or changes to address.

May 13, 2013

Dr. Teske is the best. Took time to explain and answer any questions I had. Very personable and caring.

May 05, 2013

Experience was just wonderful. I was treated well.

May 03, 2013

Dr. Teske deserves his excellent reputation. He answered all my questions clearly and patiently and always has a calm, professional demeanor.

May 02, 2013

I am VERY happy that Dr. Teske is in charge of my program and consider myself lucky to be in his care.

April 29, 2013

Dr. Teske is the best!

April 18, 2013

Excellent

April 14, 2013

Always concerned for me.

March 29, 2013

I will continue to refer patients to the Moran facility because along with expert treatment and care, patients will be the beneficiary of having professionals who take the time to LISTEN and get it right!

March 23, 2013

The provider is good the clinic too slow. If the doctor worked somewhere else I might recommend him.

March 16, 2013

Above and beyond attention to patient's needs!

March 08, 2013

very good.

March 05, 2013

Doctor is somewhat brusque

February 12, 2013

Dr. Teske and all the Moran staff were first-rate in all aspects of my care. I couldn't have asked for more.

February 08, 2013

Dr. Teske is very professional and I had a very good experience!

December 12, 2012

VERY GOOD

December 06, 2012

November 25, 2012

I'v already recommended this facility to others I know with medical challenges, it seems that Doctors at the Moran thrive on innovation and challenges. Thrive on challenges!

October 10, 2012

Once again very professional

October 05, 2012

When I informed Dr. Teske that I would be moving to the Nampa, ID area and asked for a referral, he provided me with one.

October 05, 2012

Dr. Teske is a gem!!! I have total confidence in him.

October 04, 2012

Good experience, except I should have asked more questions.

October 01, 2012

The treatment is working, as measured by a simple test; we discussed the more sophisticated testing for the next visit.

September 27, 2012

Dr. Teske is always very friendly and courteous and explains the results of the scans. He explains why continuing treatment is necessary and is very thorough with his exams.

September 17, 2012

Dr. Teske is AWESOME!!!!

September 15, 2012

We love and appreciate all Dr. Teske has done to restore my vision.

September 07, 2012

In my opinion the medical care provided is consistantly excellent. I like to know my treatment options, but believe the course of treatment offered is my best path forward..

September 07, 2012

Once when we were leaving Moran, my husband said to me, "How come these people at Moran are always so kind!"

August 23, 2012

Dr. T was recommended to me by my family's usual optometrist. I asked about the doctor's experience and communication skills. He said he always recommends Dr. T over most others. .

August 02, 2012

I have had nothing but good experiences with my physician and the fellows and residents who work with him.

July 02, 2012

Visit felt somewhat rushed, but it was a very busy day. There were many other patients to see, and I don't imagine myself to be any more important than anyone else. My interaction with everyone was cordial and professional. I felt I was treated fairly

June 21, 2012

This was a new diagnosis, and I deeply appreciated having Dr. Teske's expertise. There really was no alternative for treatment, no real decision inolved. He didn't ask me -- he told me -- what should be done and OF COURSE I agreed.

June 17, 2012

working with Dr Teske to coordinate my care with other doctors for other mishaps my body puts me through is really very nice. Plans are organized and put into place rapidly. Thankx

June 07, 2012

May 17, 2012

The doctor was a fantastic doctor but not very friendly.

May 14, 2012

good

May 07, 2012

Explained my condition in a manner easy to understand. I was impressed with the honesty of the doctor when I was told surgery was not really necessary at this time, rather than being encouraged to have surgery.

May 07, 2012

We are very fortunate to have such a quality facility in our area.

May 03, 2012

Dr. Teske is great!

May 03, 2012

Our only problem was being allowed to sit in the waiting room for such a long time!

April 25, 2012

I have already recommended that people who are having eye problems go to Moran Eye Center

April 23, 2012

have and will continue to recommend this facility. excellant care, and facility.

April 23, 2012

Dr Teske is knowledgeable, efficient and effective with a pleasant "bedside" manner. I appreciate the fact that he is open and conversive with me and is willing to admit when he doesn't know the answers to my questions, but refers me to someone who might.

April 12, 2012

Dr. Teske is wonderful!!

April 05, 2012

I don't typically rate 5 stars on 10 survey questions, but Dr. Teske and his staff have just been great to work with. I try to get as much infomation as I can and sometimes wonder if I might annoy Dr. Teske and his staff because they are always busy, but they treat me with the upmost respect & I appreciate it. I would recommend them to others without pause.

April 03, 2012

Both Dr. Teske was friendly, caring and efficient - couldn't be better!

I think Dr. Teske is wonderful. I feel I might have gone blind if it weren't for him.

February 23, 2012

Having Dr. Teske as my surgeon through a very difficult and traumatic eye injury has made a world of difference to me and my recovery. I feel he is knowledgable, professional, and has very caring side, which is a great deal of comfort to me.

February 22, 2012

Always a good experience except for the time spent.
