Through no fault of you Doctors, but they always seemed rushed, which results in the patient feeling the same.

June 23, 2014

Good

March 31, 2014

I have greatly enjoyed coming to your excellent clinic this past 17 months.

March 31, 2014

Dr Jacoby is very good and I would be very glad and have recommended her to others

March 30, 2014

dr that removed membrane was very good. not thrilled with dr. that removed cataracts initially. he doesn't really seem to care much. but i am old. I don't feel dr care much about old people except to get all the tests they can order to get the most money from us as they can before we die. just my feelings.

March 21, 2014

the doctors were all very good about telling me what they were doing. Dr. Creel was extremely good at walking me through everything he was doing and explaining what the test was showing.

March 15, 2014

Dr. Jacoby is an unsually fine doctor. She is considerate, knowledgeable, and an expert at injecting the med for glacoma. I experienced very little pain and my vision is improving. I'm gratful to her.

March 13, 2014

All medical staff from the technicians (?), to the resident (?), to the specialist provided care and information in a manner consistent with my expectation of medical professionalism (including patience in behavior and expression, addressing my inquiries respectfully and without condescension, and geniality (appreciated). The reception staff on the first and third floors and at the clinic exhibited prompt, efficient, polite behavior. Kudos to all!

Grand First Time Experience

January 24, 2014

I understand everything with provider thru my interpreter

January 20, 2014

All went well. I don't feel like I need to go to the Moran Center I am pleased with the care and attention which I recieved. Thank You.

January 18, 2014

The Doctor was helpful but had "his" agenda and I had to ask him to explain why he had decided to do the procedure that he was going to use...

January 13, 2014

The medical staff is just great. I have complete confidence in all of them. They treat you like a human being.

January 11, 2014

Since this was a followup with only an injection involved, most of the explanations and instructions had already been given on my previous visit.

January 08, 2014

She is very qualified and accommodating.

December 30, 2013

Doctor did none of the explaining what she was doing and did not spell out what was happing and how the treatment would help, and if it didn't, what I was looking at.

December 14, 2013

good, friendly people,

December 09, 2013

I really like Doctor Jacoby. I was concerned about seeing a different Doctor after seeing Doctor Vitale for so long. But Doctor Jacoby quickly put those concerns at ease.

December 02, 2013

Dr Jacoby has been so good in providing information about my condition and with working to help me with the distance I travel to have appointments that are convenient for me.

November 30, 2013

Good

September 25, 2013

very good

September 20, 2013

I am gaining more confidence in my Dr. each time I go to my monthly treatments and get to know her better.

September 08, 2013

I love the Moran Eye Center.

August 12, 2013

We got more description of the macular degeneration and what they were looking for in healing.

July 29, 2013

I felt completely at ease with Dr. Jacoby, and she addressed all my concerns. I very satisfied and confident about the visit.

July 15, 2013

This was only my second visit with Dr. Jacoby, but based on that limited experience, I have confidence in her medical professionalism and qualifications plus I like her style.

July 08, 2013

Somewhat encouraging. Detailing what to expect in the coming months.

July 05, 2013

Kindness and helpful was great

June 17, 2013

My first treatment will be in July so do not know how it will work out. Dr Jacoby seems a competent retina specialist.

June 07, 2013

I give high marks for all the care providers I saw that day, but, I would have given only slightly lower marks if it was asking me specifically about the Doctor and not including the staff.

May 24, 2013

As I said before I had a very good experience. Went much quicker than where I used to live.

March 22, 2013

I was very pleased with Dr Rachel Jacoby

March 16, 2013

I am extremely satisfied with all the medical people I have dealt with at the facility - extremely careful in attending to patients and making sure the Dr. replys to my questions if they can not answer them.

March 11, 2013

Your the greatest I can see again

March 04, 2013

Moran is the BEST !

March 04, 2013

Not a great experience. I thought the resident doctor (who I saw before Dr. Jacoby) was much more helpful and informative.

January 21, 2013

My care provider is great

January 08, 2013

good

January 07, 2013

I have great respect and confidence in Dr Jacoby, and have recommended her to others with retina problems
