January 27, 2017

I was not told what my overall vision was (20/20 etc) by either the physician or the assistant, but I realize I never asked this question specifically.

January 13, 2017

Besides being a great surgeon, Dr. Katz is an excellent communicator. His openness to answering my questions and his welcoming demeanor put me very much at ease. I felt very confident in his knowledge and skill, and would not hesitate to recommend his practice to others.

January 09, 2017

Dr Katz and his staff do a fine job

December 13, 2016

He was very good at covering all the information for questions I had.

December 11, 2016

Dr. Katz was willing to spend as much time as needed with me.

December 09, 2016


December 09, 2016

Dr. Katz time with me was surprisingly brief but sufficient.

December 06, 2016

great experience

December 05, 2016

Dr. Katz and his entire staff are outstanding!

November 30, 2016

You have good people working and it is a joy to come and get taken care of. Mws

November 22, 2016

Dr. Katz is great! I'm glad he is my ophthalmologist.

November 18, 2016

Dr. Katz spent a lot of time on history and making the decision about my case. I was more informed than most Dr. visits I have ever had. Did not feel rushed and left knowing everything was handled with care.

November 18, 2016

Dr Brad katz is absolutely fabulous!!

November 11, 2016

It was a good experience. He even explained what was happening to my eyes from a procedure from another docter.

October 18, 2016

I am very satisfied patient, I had two eye surgeries at Moran Eye Center, the caring professional service of all the surgical team goes beyond expectation I have recommended to my friends and family.

October 15, 2016

Very good

October 12, 2016

Dr. Katz was amazing. He was so kind and thorough. I completely trust him since he is well-educated and his demeanor is confident and caring.

October 10, 2016

Dr. Katz...positive

October 09, 2016

excellent experience the dr. was professional and his assistant Henry was excellent.

October 03, 2016

Dr. Katz is the greatest.

October 02, 2016

Dr. Katz is also very knowledgeable and kind. He is efficient while taking time to converse. A good balance.

September 28, 2016

Dr. Katz rocks! He was very helpful in diagnosing my problem and explaining it to me. I am very happy with his care.

September 27, 2016

Dr. Katz was warm, friendly, efficient and it was a very comfortable first experience.

September 25, 2016

I only came into the Clinic for an eye angiogram and I had a comfortable and pleasant procedure.

September 24, 2016

This was my first visit for a comprehensive eye exam.

September 23, 2016

Wait time unacceptable

September 10, 2016

Dr. Katz was one of the best doctors I've ever talked to

September 09, 2016

again, having to wait an excessive amount of time to see the doctor and then he PA walking in and asking if i have a problem seeing a PA instead of the Dr. that is not right to put a patient in that situation. If i wanted to see the PA i would have scheduled an appointment with a PA. No disrespect and I have received quality care from PAs its the principle of the situation.

September 05, 2016

Dr.Bradley Katz is truly an outstanding medical doctor and his care is just outstanding. I recommene him whenever I have an opportunity.

September 04, 2016

There is no better eye center than the Moran Eye Center!

September 03, 2016

Every thing went very well

September 03, 2016


August 29, 2016

I stopped at a shopping mall on the way home and wearing the dark glasses got into a discussion with the sales clerk who was having seemingly serious vision problems and was too frightened to have cataract surgery. On the basis of my experience at the Moran, I believe I was able to show her and convince her to get her eyes taken care of. I will go back soon and follow up with her.

August 28, 2016

Their concern and interest was deeply felt

August 21, 2016

My only complaint was I asked for sunglasses for my trip home. They did not give me any and through the rush of leaving I forgot to ask for them again. It was rather painful squinting my eyes waiting for the train and on my drive home. I had tremendous eye strain and had to take some ibuprofen when I got home. You need to give eye protection after dilating someones eyes.

August 21, 2016

I felt the care provider was very compassionate. Provided an atmosphere of comfort and safety. Provided options to maintain and improve my quality of life.

August 13, 2016

I've already recommended Dr. Katz many times. I'd recommend Henry the med tech (not sure of title), too

August 12, 2016

I had good confidence in the practitioners I saw. They all seemed very competent. The triage nurse was a little rude about the equipment my optometrist used (still does the puff test, which apparently is not up to date at all). I enjoyed Dr. Katz the neuro-ophthalmologist most. Dr. Stevens was okay-- no complaints certainly, but not overly friendly.

August 09, 2016

Dr. Katz is great, patient and kind and skilled, I am so pleased with the results of my surgery! Thank you!

August 07, 2016

A wonderful exam

August 05, 2016

Dr Katz is very kind, listens well and provides reasoned advice that is clear and understandable. I have never felt like I was wasting his time or he was disinterested.

August 04, 2016

Dr. Katz listened carefully and was exceptionally thorough.

August 03, 2016

Seemed distracted and mind elsewhere.

July 25, 2016

first time with Dr. Katz - I really liked him. Felt very comfortable and appreciated his 'bedside manner'

July 21, 2016

Great experience

July 16, 2016

Other than the wait time, this was an very good experience!

July 13, 2016

Dr. Katz is my all time favorite Physiciasn

July 03, 2016


July 03, 2016

Had eye area skin tag removed. Doc took upon himself to do pre-auth, etc. Helpful.

June 30, 2016

I was referred to this provider by another Moran eye specialist and was under the impression that he could work with glasses and refractions. I suspect this was a case of mis-matching. After having several glasses prescriptions by optometrists and continuing to see double with the prescriptions, I opted to see an opthamologist. In my view, Dr. Katz diagnosed me before he ever walked into the exam room and listened to what I wanted to say. His diagnosis was dry eyes, which can cause double vision; however, he totally ignored my 3-4 attempts to say my vision is double at a distance depending on which glasses I wear. I do not doubt I have dry eyes, but using the OTC eye drops he prescribed has not cleared the vision problem, although my eyes do not feel as 'dry'. I think this mismatching was a misuse of his time and mine. I am supposed to go back for a f/u. Perhaps my eyes won't be dry anymore, but I doubt my glasses refraction problem will be solved.

June 27, 2016

I am very happy with the service at Moran. I would like to not have these surveys with every single appointment.

June 27, 2016

Dr Katz is very warm and caring, he was able to listen and decide a course of treatment quickly and explain it clearly to me. I reaaly like him and would reccomend him to anyone!

June 22, 2016

Would absolutely recommend Dr. Katz to others.

June 17, 2016

the onley comment here is it seems to me it could have been completed in one and a half to two hours instead of the three and a half hours we were there

June 17, 2016

would love to recommend to others

June 13, 2016

Didn't seem to have read assistant's notes before speaking with me.

June 13, 2016

Dr. Katz was awesome, and finally figured out the cause of my vision problems. Something several ophthalmologists before him could not.

June 13, 2016

Despite a good appointment, a long wait time is nothing I would recommend.

May 27, 2016


May 17, 2016

I wish to never need to see Dr. Katz again. It was an awful experience.

May 17, 2016

Dr. Katz is wonderful, and we appreciate him very much.

May 16, 2016

Dr. Katz was wonderful! He explained to me patiently the condition of cataract developing in my eye. He was very caring and friendly.

May 10, 2016

I would not want anyone else caring for the most precious gift of eye sight.

May 07, 2016


April 24, 2016

Dr Katz was excellent in his care for my problem & did a great job. I would recommend his services to everyone

April 24, 2016


April 19, 2016

Very well done

April 17, 2016


April 17, 2016

I was treated with respect and the examination was thorough and care was given to my responses. I appreciated the time that the technician was able to spend with me to perform the refraction.

April 14, 2016

Very good

April 11, 2016

Dr. Katz helped me feel confident that my vision would be okay and that there were things I could do to help my situation.

April 10, 2016

Dr. Katz was always excellent in explaining each procedure all through his exam or operation. He's the best in my book.

April 09, 2016

Dr Katz is professional, knowledge, very bright & personal

April 05, 2016

I really like and have recommended Dr. Katz. he is knowledgeable, professional, and kind.

April 05, 2016

all good

April 04, 2016

After a 40 minute wait and a rushed 10 minute exam-- which I was told would be a full eye exam but was not-- I did not come away with a good feeling.

March 24, 2016

Always an excellent experience with Dr. Katz

March 21, 2016

Dr Katz is brainy and caring. I recommend him to whomever tells me they have or need an eye doctor. Dr Katz gave me "eagle-eye" vision post-op cataract and astigmatism surgery. Am forever grateful. My husband, generally a grump, genuinely looked forward to his office visits to Dr Katz because Dr Katz showed interest in his, my huband's, eyes.

March 18, 2016

The resident was very helpful in providing additional information.

March 10, 2016

Felt like they just rushed me in and rushed me out. They knew they were behind and so it felt like they didn't care for me individually or my concerns. It felt like they were in a rush to get to the next patient. The Dr wasn't even in the room for 2 min.

March 06, 2016

The summary of my over all eye health now and future (aside from the issue at hand) was unexpected, timely and deeply appreciated.

February 18, 2016

Dr. Katz and staff were great, my concerns were small, but I was treated well and happily return.

February 10, 2016

It was a good experience. I felt I was getting the best of medical care; the communications was informed, respectful and caring. Thank you.

January 14, 2016

Dr. Katz and Dr. Hanson are so very kind and go the extra mile to help me. I wish all doctors were like them and showed that kind of care and compassion for their patients!

January 13, 2016

I was a little concerned about not having my previous records on hand for the Dr to look at. I have been there at least twice before .

January 12, 2016


January 08, 2016

I was actually requesting for a 2nd opinion when I scheduled for my appointment.

January 07, 2016

We feel lucky to have the Moran Center so close to our condo just west of campus.

January 07, 2016

A problem occurred and Dr Katz and the staff jumped right on it! ð¿¿¿

January 07, 2016

All of the staff I encountered at this vist were excellent. Dr. Katz as usual was excellent!

January 07, 2016

I really appreciated Dr. Katz seeing me without an appointment and not pressuring me to have a contact bandage when I didn't want one. I was very happy with the eye patch & how my eye healed.

January 06, 2016

Dr. Katz is excellent. I would highly recommend him to any of my family and friends.

December 22, 2015


December 22, 2015


December 11, 2015

Again, everyone was very pleasant and helpful. Dr. Katz as always was extremely helpful

December 05, 2015

Doctor was very patient and willing to answer questions, talk about the procedure and many other things I brought up . Everything I heard from him was not only informative and educational, but also very interesting.

December 04, 2015

The nurse was decent and the PA was great. Dr. Katz was arrogant, impersonal (he mostly spoke with the assistant without acknowledging I was in the room, only speaking to me when absolutely necessary) He refused to check for inflammation when I told him that my neurologist said that was something he would check for. He tried to send me home without even dilating my eyes. The only reason he did was I kept asking questions about symptoms so he said he guessed he could dilate them.

November 28, 2015

My confidence in Dr. Katz is outstanding. He has such focus and concentration. I really appreciate his knowledge and professionalism. Everyone there is so good at what they do. Everyone cares! You can't get that anywhere these days except at Moran. I have told everyone how fortunate we are to be under Dr. Katz's care and the Moran Eye Center. Great Job!!!!

November 18, 2015

Dr. Katz is very, very good! I have complete confidence in him and his diagnosis of my eye challenges. Although this visit was not urgent, he treated me as though I was the only one in the clinic and made me feel comfortable and safe. Dr. Katz has a great demeanor. I enjoy coming to the clinic for his services.

November 16, 2015

Very professional staff

November 16, 2015

The scoring above says it all.

November 14, 2015

Dr. Brad Katz is my guardian angel!!! I HAVE recommended him to others and will continue to do so!

November 13, 2015

I have and will continue to tell all who I "see" and talk too that you and yours are the best. "THANKS" mws

November 12, 2015

Best care I've ever had.

November 09, 2015

Dr Katz was very professional

November 09, 2015

Dr. Katz is terrific!

November 06, 2015

Good experience

November 02, 2015

He made me feel stupid for getting a check up. I haven't had a check up in several years and thought it would be smart to get one but when he found out that was the only reason I was there he didn't spend much time with me and told me I didn't need to get a check up anymore.

November 02, 2015

Dr. Katz was very thorough and made me feel like he was just as concerned as I was about the problems I was experiencing. He explained it to me in a way I could understand, without me asking.

October 29, 2015

I felt so rushed in the appointment. I know he was busy though.

October 18, 2015

It's somewhat disconcerting and impersonal to have your caregiver spend half of your appointment time typing at the computer while you are sitting in the exam room

October 08, 2015

My husband and I both came in to have our annual eye exams, and my husband ended up having a eye problem and they worked with us and did not dilate my eyes so I could drive us home . They brought him into my room so we could talk about his eye problem. They went above and beyond.. I love this place.

October 03, 2015

The Dr Katz was more interested in the computer and the assistant Dr than what I was saying. He insists my eye issue is from Diabetes which A1C confirms I don't now nor have I ever had Diabetes. He also said my High Blood Preasure- once again I don't have high blood pressure and never have. He has seen my previously and no solution just watched this and now that I have a problem no real reason or what to do to prevent more complications. I'm very concerned of my eye sight and keep coming back but I'm not convinced Dr Katz cares or understands what is going on. I would like to have a print out of the images and reports which I had to request and then wait for. I could have gotten them while we looked at them or taken a picture of them. He also said I had dry eye and didn't suggest anything for it. I understand he is the best but if so maybe he just doesn't like me.

October 01, 2015

excellent experience

September 18, 2015

I was hoping to get glasses that would magnify the print to help my reading to be more enjoyable

September 09, 2015

I realize the Doctors are so busy, and come in for just a short time because they have so many patients to see but the senior medical student gave me more information and told me more about the exam that would follow and why.

September 06, 2015

Dr Katz was very courtesy and helpful. The resident/fellow however that saw me prior to Dr Katz was not very courtesy. Several times she asked a question and then speak over me while I attempted to answer her. She was seemed uncaring and as though I was unimportant to her.

September 06, 2015

My very special thanks to Dr. Katz, Dr. Hansen and the entire team at the surgical center at Moran Eye Center who all went the extra mile and then some to help accommodate my special needs circumstance due to my physical limitations. Also a big ⿿thank-you⿝ to the two wonderful individuals who came over from the Physical Therapy Department to assist with transfers on and off the surgery gurney/bed.

September 05, 2015

nothing was explained to us. we were told to buy glasses to protect his good eye. that's it. no explanation of what was wrong at all.

September 04, 2015

Dr Bradley Katz has taken care of my eye problems for years. He is impeccable in his skill and compassion for the patient. I could not be more grateful for his consistency and concern for his patients.

August 28, 2015

Here's the deal - everyone who is associated with the practice under Katz needs to take a step back and look around at the magic that happens under his care. I would hope Katz has interns pounding his door to shadow the inner workings.

August 27, 2015

Dr. Bradley Katz is truly a gifted caring physician. Thank goodness for such physicians. AN A+ IN ALL AREAS!

August 23, 2015

Dr. Katz is the best ophthalmologist I've ever been to, and this visit served to re-affirm that.

August 21, 2015

Medical staff was friendly and competent. Total appointment time was excessive (2 1/2 hrs.)

August 19, 2015


August 16, 2015

Dr. Katz gave me helpful advice for my chronic condition. He is very kind.

July 19, 2015

I'm extremely impressed with Dr. Katz. He is a wonderful doctor. He was very thorough in my care and when I emailed him with some information, he responded very promptly. I have anxiety disorder and Dr. Katz was so patient with me and my concerns. Also, I live in Tooele and on the day of my appointment there was a car accident that made me nearly 45 minutes late to my appointment. Dr. Katz was so understanding of the situation and still agreed to see me. He could have easily made me reschedule but he made time to see me. I think Dr. Katz truly cares about his patients.

July 16, 2015

excellent experience.

July 16, 2015

I greatly appreciate the insight Dr Katz and his staff have provided for the problems I am having with my eyes and in recommending activities to prevent other potential problems. I never feel rushed or overlooked, by Dr Katz or his staff.

July 10, 2015

Dr. Katz is one of the best physicians I have been treated by at Moran.

July 09, 2015

I have always been treated courteously and professionally.

July 08, 2015

Dr. Katz has always treated me more as a friend than a patient and that is the reason I only want to see him.

June 24, 2015

I am very appreciative of Dr Katz' expertise and access to him. He has been very helpful in identifying the underlying cause of some of my visual frustrations and has offered suggestions as to how to correct some of these.

June 23, 2015

My dad is very comfortable with Dr. Katz and we have enjoyed his care and concern for my father. Thank you.

June 22, 2015

Dr. Katz was great

June 16, 2015

I was extremely impressed with my care.

June 14, 2015

I read some poor reviews about Dr. Katz before my appointment. I was pleasantly surprised as Dr. Katz and his team not only far surpassed my expectations, but set the bar very high for my future providers. I had an excellent experience and have already recommended Dr. Katz to a coworker.

June 11, 2015

I was relieved that Dr. Katz had suggestions about other treatments I could try instead of telling me that I shouldn't be having the screen & dry eye problems.

June 10, 2015

I had the pleasure of speaking with 3 doctors. One was from another Country

June 10, 2015

I really liked the doctor and assistants, but the PA was a little cold.

May 26, 2015

outstanding service provided by Dr Katz, PA Stephanie S?, eye exam/vision correction provided by male technician

May 19, 2015

Dr Katz is excellent

May 17, 2015

I really liked the resident. He is great with kids. Dr Katz was also awesome.

May 16, 2015

I was really impressed with how well the dr answered questions we sent to him via email following the appointment. He addressed my questions thoroughly and thoughtfully. I really appreciated not being put off once I walked out the door.

May 15, 2015

Dr.Katz is amazing.

May 11, 2015

Dr. Katz is always quite open about what is going on.

May 09, 2015

every thing about the doctor service was fantasric

May 05, 2015


April 27, 2015

My entire experience was positive, and I was very impressed with Dr. Katz and his staff. They were thorough, considerate of my needs, and professional in every way.

April 27, 2015


April 26, 2015

Everything GREAT !

April 26, 2015

Dr. Katz is absolutely fabulous. I so appreciate his knowledge and concern for my well being. He is a one-of-a-kind in today's world.

April 09, 2015

the physician was clearly too busy, but did what he had to

April 07, 2015

Dr. Katz was very short with me and I did not feel he respected me as a patient.

April 06, 2015

always a professional and very good experience

April 03, 2015

I greatly appreciate the availability of someone with Dr Katz' expertise and specialization. His thoroughness and approach to differential diagnoses, and suggested consultations, were excellent.

March 26, 2015

Great experience

March 21, 2015

Dr Katz and Henry are both wonderful. I would recommend highly to all.

March 16, 2015

I was glad I could be seen the same day I called for an appointment.

March 12, 2015


March 02, 2015

I have recommended Dr. Katz to several people already.

February 27, 2015

I'm very please with you people who served me in a quality manner.

February 24, 2015

I like that there was excellent coordination from the tech, Resident/PA, and Dr. Katz.

February 24, 2015

It was okay.

February 16, 2015

excellent care

February 04, 2015

Over all a very good experience with Dr Katz. I didn't feel like I was being rushed through the process as I did at another facility. Thanks for your kind and caring service.

January 27, 2015

Dr. Katz was able to properly diagnose the condition in a relatively short period of time. He was very direct and confident about the diagnosis and didn't try to "sugar-coat" what was going on.

January 21, 2015

your Dr was very behind so when he came in I wasn't asked one question. he did a very fast exam and told me my eye pain was caused by neck stiffness and there wasn't anything that can be done for eye floaters which is interfering with my vision. the end. it was over. no explanation of any of my issues. it took 3 hours for that. dispoointed to say the least.

January 17, 2015

I was born with ptosis and have had other eye problems my entire life. I was referred to Dr. Katz by my internal Med dr. I have complete confidence in Dr. Katz's ability to handle any and all problems with my eyes.

January 16, 2015

I am very happy with Dr. Katz and the way he treats me. I have in the past recommended him to other people. I have 100% confidence in his knowledge and care.

January 14, 2015

I spent over two and a half hours at the Moran center only 15 minutes was with him personally. He seemed adequate and knowledgeable but really my time to brief to be able to tell without having a follow up visit after and MRI. Which I am still waiting to be contacted after calling.

January 13, 2015

I felt very comfortable with him and felt he understood my problems.

January 13, 2015

High quality care.

January 11, 2015

Please see the previous comment. I thought he was excellent.

January 03, 2015

After the long wait I was told by the doctor that I had dry eyes. Told which eye-drops to buy and which to stay away from. The concern I had with the blurry vision in my left eye was never addressed again after the PA first heard my concerns.

December 30, 2014

Really didn't answer my concerns at all. Still unsure about my eye

December 29, 2014

When inserting one of the plugs, I experienced some discomfort. The doctor said I shouldn't be having any. I didn't care if scientifically it shouldn't be hurting me; it was. (He started over and there was no pain the second time.) Otherwise, everything was fine.

December 22, 2014

Dr. Katz was very professional, yet very personable.

December 17, 2014

Dr. Katz listened carefully to me and I felt he really understood what I was experiencing which is difficult to explain to a person.

December 16, 2014

Dr. Katz seemed competent, business-like and almost disinterested in me as a patient. He did not ask me what my chief complaints or concerns were. He rattled off findings and readings to his assistant without explaining cohesively to me what they were or meant. I was not informed upfront that a contact lens exam would need to be done separately even though I mentioned right at first to the technician I was interested in that.

December 12, 2014

The visiting resident, the fellow and Dr. Katz were quite simply excellent in every way. The young doctors worked assiduously, non-stop. They were somehow all-business while still being friendly and treating me in a personable way.I felt they cared about my issue and were totally focused on meeting my needs. Dr. Katz, as important as he is, nevermade me feel rushed. He spent time with me and was thorough in every way. His diagnosis was authoritative without being condesending in any way which made me feel totally confident that my problem had been identified and addressed appropriately.

November 28, 2014

DR. Katz and his team are very caring and kind. They want to help you all they can to shorten your stay.

November 27, 2014

Excellent Doctor

November 27, 2014

The lab technician who took me back did an excellent job of informing what to expect during the examination. Then she did an exccellent gob of gathering my health information and recording it. Dr. Valenzuza completed the rest of the examination. He was very knowledgible, very throughable, and asked a lot of very good questions. He then reported his observations and opinions to Dr. Katz when Dr. Katz came into the room. Dr. Katz was very knowledible, made some observations, and opinions to my conditions. I feel very confident in the people who treated me during my viisit.

November 24, 2014

Dr. Katz and his staff have always been very helpful and show concern for their patients.

November 23, 2014

Dr. Katz and his team are fantastic!

November 20, 2014

After months of frustration Dr. Katz was wonderful. He was informative and I left feeling confident I would finally get answers and treatment for my issues.

November 17, 2014

I have been seeing Dr. Katz for over 10 years and he is the best around

November 16, 2014


November 13, 2014

good experience

November 09, 2014

Dr. Katz and his assistants provided outstanding service.

November 05, 2014

All satisfactory except for the long wait.Spent 2 houra there for 10 minute exam.

November 02, 2014

Even though the wait seemed long, I wasn't "upset", I am willing to wait to get expert advice.

October 29, 2014

Dr.Katz is the best.the above says it all.professional, caring, informative. I'm so impressed with the MORAN center

October 28, 2014

care provider is great, took to long through the process. Overbooked???

October 07, 2014

Dr. Katz is a wonderful. Doctor that is very knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything fully about my condition and concerns and made me feel very comfortable during my visit.

September 29, 2014

all excellent, just great !

September 28, 2014

Dr. Katz is superb. I frequently recommend him to friends.

September 25, 2014

Dr Katz is an extremely kind and skilled doctor. In spite of the pressures on him, he is unfailingly courteous. He has helped me through some very difficult experiences when I actually lost my vision temporarily in one eye.

August 30, 2014

Gave a recommendation as to what pwoer reading glas I might need. Suggested getting at a grocery store rather than optical shop as they are not as expansive and about the same quality.

August 28, 2014

Very good and Highly Recommend the care provider!

August 24, 2014

Dr. Katz explained to me about cataracts and the options I have.

August 21, 2014

I feel like my problem with my eyes was completely disregarded. I am very upset of how the Dr wouldn't even listen to my questions and concerns. he had his mind made up that nothing was wrong, and that was that. very poor care

August 16, 2014

Eveyone was very professional and listened to my concerns.

August 14, 2014

This was a very good experience.

August 13, 2014

Dr. Katz is fabulous. He helped me get in when there wasn't a scheduled appointment. He's been extremely helpful. He helped me solve a problem that has plagued me for years, and I've seen other eye doctors who actually made matters worse. He nailed it!!!!

August 09, 2014

Katz is a great doc. this is second cataract he has removed.

August 09, 2014

Dr. Katz was very clear in his diagnosis and I appreciated not only his clarity but also his kindness in listening to my concerns.

August 03, 2014

very good

August 03, 2014

Dr Katz remembers idiosyncrasies of my eyes. I trust his expertise. I see better thanks to his care and my life is better for it.

August 03, 2014

Everyone should be lucky enough to have Dr. Katz treat him/her. He is awesome and I do make sure people know who treated me and took care of my eyes. I mention it often to those who ask me about my cataracts and even when I tell someone I had the eye done and the left eye this week...I always mention Dr. Katz. He exudes confidence has a great demeanor and I enjoy having him treat me. He has a great sense of humor..quite pleasant.

July 31, 2014

We have only had outstanding experiences with Dr. Katz and staff.

July 29, 2014

Excellent physician. Clear, precise, explained well. Efficient once he got in the room.

July 25, 2014

Sometimes my worrying interferes with my listening, but have to say, everything was straightforward with an openness that invited listening with understanding. Hope that makes sense.

July 23, 2014

Doctor seemed to reach a diagnosis in the first 30 seconds and the remaining exam seemed to be cursory and designed to only confirm his diagnosis. Asked me questions, but seemed to dismiss the answer when it didn't fit his expected response.

July 19, 2014

Only word to describe Dr. Katz is AWESOME!

July 08, 2014

The nurse was named Elizabeth and she was the most informed eye care nurse I have ever had! Excellent. Like Dr. Katz too.

June 26, 2014

Have always appreciated Dr. Katz' courtesy and care provided.

June 16, 2014

Dr. Katz' entire clinic was great. Because my wait was so long I had the opportunity to hear Dr. Katz as he escorted several elderly patients to the waiting room and I was very impressed with his kindness toward these clients. Also, Cheryl, the assistant to helped me with the vision exam in the room was outstanding.

June 16, 2014

Dr. Katz was very good and helpful.

June 05, 2014

During my visit, there was a visiting woman Dr. from another country. Dr. Katz's explanation to her about how he came to the conclusion he did on my eyesight and adding a crystal to my left eyeglass lens and me seeing things on a tilt - is what made it easier for me to understand why I had 20/20 vision but was seeing double and had to close my right eye to see clearly. I knew something was wrong, but couldn't explain or put into words. The P.A. didn't understand either and I could tell he was blowing me off (in a way) - although he was very professional and kind. So, Dr. Katz just needed to speak to me as he did the visiting Dr. - I have MS and get confused easily - but I could understand, in a way, what he was explaining to her how he came to his conclusion. And I "do" have the need to understand things, rather than just being 'fixed'. I had a lovely experience.

June 05, 2014

I was really impressed with Dr. Katz. He's not my primary eye care professional, but I would like him to be.

June 05, 2014

I am very pleased with the Moran Eye Center. I fully trust and respect Dr. Katz for his knowledge of my problems and the correct solutions.

June 05, 2014

The physician seemed distant, not sure if he was puzzled by my condition, frustrated that I had lost more vision or just having a bad day. The PA was very personable and caring.

May 26, 2014

Dr. Katz is incredibly thorough and kind.

May 19, 2014

Dr. Katz was easy to talk to and was very helpful with his feedback.

May 18, 2014

After meeting with doctor assistant I had to wait an hour to see Dr. Katz who spent maybe 8 minutes with me. My time is just as valuable as his. This is the third time this has happened at the Moran. I'm NOT a happy CAMPER!!!

May 17, 2014

care giver in the Eye Center were knowledgeable , courteous and good listeners

May 16, 2014

Very caring and through, he spotted a mistake on the MRI done in Sevier Valley Hospital

May 07, 2014

very good

May 07, 2014

Have already recommended Dr. Katz to others, including other physicians.

May 06, 2014

Care was excellent. Time to navigate the system was not.

May 06, 2014

Dr. Katz is always friendly and informative.

May 06, 2014

dr Katz brought in three fellows, didn't introduce them , and treated me like a lab rat. I felt out of control and unable to discuss anything about my condition with him because of the overwhelming number of people. I actually froze and my husband had to speak because of my anxiety disorder. I found him uncaring and distant from input since there were so many coats in the small room, especially considering we are looking at a serious autoimmune disease diagnosis. I think he is competent, just needs a thump up side the head on how to treat patients, even in a teaching institution .

May 06, 2014

Very pleasant visit

April 17, 2014

Dr Katz has a good reputation and I feel lucky to be able to obtain his medical services

April 13, 2014

Excellent care provider

April 12, 2014

Whenever I come to the Moran Center I feel like the Dr. always has time to listen to me. Dr Katz does a good job making sure I am taken care of.

April 10, 2014

Dr. Katz knew the answers to my many questions and I appreciate the time he took to help me understand my condition.

April 10, 2014

Dr Katz is the BEST.

April 08, 2014

Care provider very pleasant and efficient. Willing to learn new things.

April 05, 2014

We have recommended Dr. Katz to many people. He is a great doctor.

April 04, 2014

Everyone I came in contact with was positive and helpful. I would recommend the clinic to others.

March 29, 2014

Doctor Katz is my parents' optomologist, he came highly recommended and I would pass that on to others. He's very friendly and professional.

March 26, 2014

Had nothing but good results on my visit

March 16, 2014

like I have stated before my over all experience was great

March 06, 2014

Complete Staff is TOPS

March 05, 2014

Dr. Katz put me at ease. I feel that I am in professional, caring hands.

March 02, 2014

Dr. Katz has always been very professional, helpful and informative.

March 01, 2014

Doctor assured me that the problem was not a detached retina, and explained how it would play out, but didn't actually say what caused it. I assume that a small blood vessel burst.

February 23, 2014

Dr. Katz wrote me a prescription for corrective (prism) glasses on my previous visit, he informed me that if they were not a proper correction to let him know, after receiving the glasses I determined they were not working and my vision was not improved. I phoned the clinic to make an appointment to have the prescription adjusted, was told I would need to speak to Dr. Katz directly, waited one week for a follow up phone call and was told I needed to come back in to be re-examined. The next available appointment was approximately one week later. Dr. Katz entered the exam room, I stated that I felt the glasses need a different prescription, he stated there was nothing more that could be done to the prescription. I was not evaluated, the glasses were not checked. I could have been told this over the phone instead of making another trip to the Moran, finding a driver (who had to schedule time off of work). The appointment was a total waste of EVERYONE'S time. Dr. Katz could/should have relayed this information to me over the telephone.

February 21, 2014

The only problem was with the wait time.

February 18, 2014


February 18, 2014

The doctor gave me a dry eye product sample, I love new product samples and trust that my doctor wouldn't give me anything that would be harmful, I appreciated that, I've used the product and it seems to be working well for me.

January 31, 2014

All questions were answered. Detailed explanations were given about any concerns I had

January 31, 2014

Dr. Katz provided a very good experience answering all of my questions in a very knowledgeable and compassionate manner.

January 27, 2014

Dr. Katz and his staff have always worked really well with me.

January 21, 2014

A very pleasant experience.

January 20, 2014

This was a good experience. I appreciated further testing and diagnosis of my problem.

January 20, 2014

Care by Katz and his staff is without Peer.

January 18, 2014

All health care providers were helpful, answered my questions/concerns. Gave detail information

December 16, 2013

Dr. Katz is amazing!!! He is very friendly and thorough. He will spend whatever time is needed to get to the bottom of whatever is going on. He actually took extra time to get me measured for new interocular lenses so he could do surgery even though I was there for another reason. He always talks to my husband and thanks him for bringing me/coming with me. He is also loved by his staff and the surgery techs which says something HUGE about a provider. When I complimented him, he seemed surprised and was very humble in taking the compliment. He even called me the day after I went to Triage (on a SATURDAY) to follow up and make sure I was okay. I have already recommended him to multiple people.

December 08, 2013

Dr. Katz was my attending physician and he is very polite, caring and informative. He explains procedures and happenings in a way that it is easy to understand. He is extremely knowledgable in his field and I have the utmost confidence in his expertise and would and have highly recommended him to others. I believe Dr. Katz has spent adequate time with me and I left the office knowing that I was well cared for and Dr. Katz will inform me of my pathology results when they are available to him. He is the physician of my choice.

November 26, 2013

very good experience

November 25, 2013

This was a post exam from cataract surgery 2 weeks ago, which both the PA and Dr. Katz did not realize that I had. Was given a very brief (15 seconds) eye check from the cataract surgery and out the door. I did not get this treatment from my prior appointments with this office, I guess it was a busy day for them.

November 05, 2013

First class care.

November 04, 2013

I have already recomended him

November 04, 2013


November 04, 2013

Good experience

October 31, 2013

All very good

October 31, 2013

Dr. Katz is an excellent and very busy doctor. I felt like he was doing his work as quickly as possible. that's okay.

October 31, 2013

I had my eye surgery Dr Katz was extremely knowledgable. I have already recommended the doctor to a couple of my friends.

October 31, 2013

I appreciate the help and candor..

October 29, 2013

No problems

October 26, 2013

Friend, direct, competent

October 22, 2013

All very great experiences with all concerned!!!!

October 22, 2013

already have recomended him and the center

October 15, 2013

my confidence in his ability is as good as it gets

October 14, 2013

The doc acted like I was a number, not a person, Seems like he had a quota to make and was behind. Seemed like he was going to make up time at my expense. Not impressed!

October 10, 2013

I came to the test thinking I may have permanent damage to my eye and left with the knowledge that it just a product of age. this lifted a weight that is hard to describe

October 08, 2013

I had a very good experience overall.

October 07, 2013

All in all a very good experience I have never been treated so well by any other optomitrist or optical clinic ever and I have had to wear eyewear for my entire life 67 years!!!!

October 03, 2013

Dr. Katz is an excellent doctor who has lots of patients. I come in the morning so I don't have to wait as long as one would have to in the afternoon.

October 03, 2013

I am very thankful that I was able to see Dr. Katz. He was thorough, kind and caring. I am waiting for my new glasses. Hopefully, they will be as good as the ones that they gave me to try. It has been a good experience. I am now able to drive and be more independent. Thank you to eveyone who helped.

October 01, 2013

Most of my care and time spent was with fellows/medical students, who was much more inquisitve and took more time with me then the actual doctor, whom spent maybe 20 minutes with me during my 5 hour appointment. The above score is not rating them, but Dr. Katz himself.

September 23, 2013

Doctor Katz is GREAT! The best care of my eyes I could ever get. He has saved my eyesite. I am so grateful to have him as my doctor. He is also concerned about my overall health. Because of him I have changed all of my health providers to U of U medical providers.

September 19, 2013

was allowed no contribuyion in how soon the resolvedure/s

August 27, 2013

Dr Katz is an excellent and caring physician. I'm very grateful that he has spent time to answer all of my questions.

August 27, 2013

Everyone is very competent. They are trying to help my situation

August 20, 2013

Over all great experience

August 05, 2013

the wait time was so long and the time that I actually got with the doctor left a bad taste in my mouth so I would probably not recommend this doctor to others.

July 29, 2013

I have already recommended Dr. Katz to several people, including my wife.

July 29, 2013

Dr. Katz was pleasant and took time with us.

July 23, 2013

Dr. Katz is great, I have confidence in him, I feel like he cares and that he wants to give me the best care possible.

July 22, 2013

Dr. Katz certainly gives the impression that he knows his business.. I would recommend him to anybody.

July 18, 2013

Since I have been to several doctors and get the same response that they have no idea what is wrong, I wasn't expecting anything different. However Dr. Katz said he would look into the situation further, which made me feel better.

June 25, 2013

Dr Katz is awesome... appears to be soooo smart and thoughtful, both. Really glad he's my doctor. My vision is vastly improved from a year ago. Thanks Dr Katz.

June 24, 2013

I would recommend the Moran Eye Center to anybody who needed your type of services.

June 24, 2013

Dr Katz is very friendly and patient and careful.

June 21, 2013

Great over all experience -

June 05, 2013

Dr. Katz is excellent!

June 04, 2013

100 % satisfied with everything. Thank you all so much And my Dr was awesome ( Dr Katz)

June 03, 2013

I asked Dr Katz to explain to me what he was seeing one the scans of my optic nerve and he just said they look good. Maybe a slight problem on the right, but I was really interested. I wanted him to explain to me what I was seeing. Also, he never told me what my intraocular pressure was. I really want to know these things.

May 18, 2013

Awesome Dr Katz... I recommend him whenever the opportunity arrises

May 17, 2013

I have already recommended Brad Katz to several people.

April 29, 2013

I recommend Moran Eye Center - and especially Doctor Katz - to all my friends and family frequently. Being 72 and aware how much eyesight means to me, I couldn't be in better hands!

April 23, 2013

very glad the doctor worked with me on my total lack of insurance

April 02, 2013

Again, everyone was top-rate!

April 01, 2013


April 01, 2013

Dr. Katz is an excellent doctor and we have recommended him to others and trust him completely with our family's eyecare.

March 28, 2013

Experience was VERY refreshing

This was the best experience I have ever had getting my eyes checked.

March 11, 2013

Dr. Katz was highly professional and informative.

March 04, 2013

I was treated very well by everyone I meet.

March 01, 2013

Good experience with the doctor.

February 26, 2013

Dr Katz one of the best drs I have known

February 11, 2013

Dr. Katz opened with a dialogue that allowed me to ask questions comfortably and not feel I was out of my league. He explained my problem in terms that elevated my own education; and prescribed solutions balancing both natural and scientific action.

February 04, 2013

Overall experience was good. Took a little too long for the first contact is all. Not bad however.

January 22, 2013

Bulk of examination was done by assistant but was much more comprehensive than usual

January 21, 2013

We're so grateful to have Dr Katz and Dana Dillon taking care of our eyes

January 19, 2013


January 18, 2013

I was very pleased with the care my doctor, Dr. B. Katz, gave me. He discussed the situation with me and offered follow up information after a thorough examination. Both my husband and I have been patients of Dr. Katz and I have the utmost confidence in his judgment as well as his knowledge. I would highly recommend him and his staff to others as the opportunity arises.

January 17, 2013

Sometimes I wasn't sure what questions to ask and was surprised there wasn't more testing done.

January 14, 2013

Dr. Katz was friendly, efficient and very professional. He quickly reviewed my chart (I had not seen him previously) and completed examination of my eyes following my vision testing by another staff member, Julie.

January 08, 2013

Dr. Katz was terrific. Thank you!

December 31, 2012


December 25, 2012

very good

December 19, 2012

I trust my vision to Dr Katz and have recommended Moran Eye Center to many friends and family

December 17, 2012

I have always recommended Dr. Katz when asked for eye doctors.

December 13, 2012

Dr.Katz was very informative.

December 04, 2012

Thank You Dr. Katz and your staff!! I feel comfortable about my care at present and confident about future care as well!!

December 03, 2012

I was worked in for an acute problem and was very quickly and well cared for.

November 29, 2012

Dr. Katz and staff are truly outstanding. We travel over 600 miles to visit Dr. Katz and arevery grateful for his outstanding service.

November 27, 2012

This is as always a very good experience for me.

November 22, 2012

The specific issue involved retinal cancer ind it appeared the primary care provider did not want to discuss the long term outcomes in detail. Perhaps that is good with some patients; with me I wanted to know more about exactly what the possibilities were for the diagnosis, implications for long term survivability, etc. The primary care taker seemed a bit mute in bringing up such issues.

November 15, 2012

Overall good experience. However, we had expected a quicker session being scheduled at 8 AM

November 04, 2012

Fast, efficient service in a very personal, friendly manner,

November 02, 2012

Dr Katz is awesome... understands eyes and understands my eyes. Dana ___ is a terrific addition to Moran.

October 22, 2012

I would recommend Dr. Katz to anyone needing eye surgery.

October 18, 2012

Very Good

October 08, 2012

I am extremely pleased and feel very confident with Dr.Katz and his staff. I knew what the procedure would be and all was explained to me before I entered the operating area. Kindness prevailed and concern for my well being. You can't ask for more than that!! I would and have highly recommended Dr. Katz and the Moran Eye Institute to others.

October 08, 2012

The care provider is brillant.

October 01, 2012

Dr. Katz is the best opthamologist I have ever seen. I was extremely impressed with him!

September 15, 2012

very caring

August 28, 2012

I feel that Dr. Katz is a very competent medical professional, but I didn't feel a lot of personal concern for my particular situation. He was very rushed and seemed impatient while I was giving my medical history.

August 21, 2012

he was very careful and concerned about me and took all the time needed

August 21, 2012

Dr. Katz has been my physician for several years as well as my husband and we have the utmost confidence in him. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a doctor at the Moran Institute.

August 06, 2012

During my appointment, my wife had some health problems. Dr Katz was extremely helpful with her and finishing my appointment. Greatly appreciated !!!

August 02, 2012

Dr Bradley Katz is a highly skilled, compassionate, kind neuro-opthalmologist. His attitude is consistently gracious and pleasant.

August 01, 2012

Very good experience with Dr. Katz and his associates.

July 30, 2012

Dr.Katz is fabulous!! We are fortunate to have him at Moran

July 28, 2012

I was disappointed that my condition could not be explained, but I understand the difficulty my problem presents.

July 24, 2012

Dr. Katz was very friendly and made my wife feel very comfortable. He was patient enough to listen and then address my wife's concerns.

July 23, 2012

This was a follow up of an ongoing condition. Time with doctor was short but adequate.

July 18, 2012

Dr. Katz is very professional and personal. He did a great job with my eyes and answered all of my questions.

July 09, 2012

Dr Katz is great, he jokes with me and answers all of my questions. His manner helps me relax and feel comfortable going to appointments.

July 02, 2012

Very satisfied

June 25, 2012

The only bad experience was having to wait so long ifor the exam with Dr. Katz.

June 22, 2012

I actually did recommend Dr. Katz to my mother who has already seen him and I assume she appreciates him as much as I do.

June 14, 2012

An excepetional group of professional health care providers. Kudos to one and all!

June 13, 2012

I told him what I would like to get out of the procedures. He made some changes, we discussed pros and cons and locked in on an approach. The outcome was exactly what we had talked about.

June 12, 2012

Dr Katz has been and continues to be an excellent provider of care.

June 04, 2012

All of the providers, assistants, etc. in the Opthalmology are excellent!

June 03, 2012

Dr Katz was a perfect professional.

April 19, 2012

Dr. Katz was great, patient and gave me info I liked

April 17, 2012

Dr. Katz is really one of the best.

April 12, 2012

I have ultimate confidence in Dr. Bradley Katz. I was there for cataract surgery. He had been monitoring my condition for a number of years and I was kept extremely well informed. During that time I suffered a torn retina and the triage system used to get me diagnosed and treated was outstanding.

April 05, 2012

Dr Katz is awesome. I 'm so fortunate he is my doctor.

April 05, 2012

Wanted to kow why I was taking other meds insteading of just accepting the fact that I took them. I don't like people questioning my use of pain meds. Makes me feel like a druggie when they do, even though the use is legit

March 19, 2012

It's always frustrating to go to a Dr. appt and see Interns, Fellows and 4 minutes with the actual Dr. you had an appointment to see. Although I admit the team did an amazing job, I was not overly happy with the interaction and care the Dr. gave. I felt like although I know I have problems he really wasn't interested in helping me understand them he just wanted me out the door and handed me another pill I am supposed to take. Dr.'s are busy I get that but so am I. Busy doesn't equate to a hit and run appt.

March 19, 2012

I have been coming for about a year and every 3 or 4 months I have a follow up appointment to see how things are progressing. Each time since the first visit I have spent no less than 2 hours and as much as 3 hours and 25 minutes to be seen. I have found the wait to be excessive especially when it's a follow up appointment. I understand problems happen but I have wondered if patients are seen by appointment time and wondered why a follow up has to wait soooooo long to be seen when my actual time with the doctor is less than 30 minutes. I have worked in a doctors office so I do have a reasonable expectation of the time it should take to be seen.

March 14, 2012

dr. katz is a great dr. and i would send friends to see him

March 07, 2012

from walking in the door to walking out of the door, I felt involved, important, and all together like a human being and not a number. a verry good experience.

February 27, 2012

Everything was good with Dr. Katz. It just took 2 hours for a 15 minute proceedure!

February 13, 2012

Very good experience

February 08, 2012

Very good experience!

February 07, 2012

Doctors teach you a lot about your disease

February 02, 2012

Dr Katz MD, is the best and would not change him anything!

February 01, 2012

This was a great experience time wise probably the best. It isn't my nature to put VERY GOOD on my surveys.

January 25, 2012

I really liked Dr. Katz. I did not need explanations, etc. and there were no treatment decisions to be made It was a fairly quick visit. I intend to see him again next year, or sooner if a problem arises.

January 23, 2012


January 18, 2012

Dr. Katz knew what the problem was and referred to to a specialist who could help me. Wasn't expecting such a serious problem. Answered questions honestly.

January 09, 2012

Been seeing Dr. Katz for several years would highly recommend him, and the Moran center, to anyone needing specialized services.

January 04, 2012

Really good MD. Very helpful. Would recommend to others.
