August 06, 2015

I'm delighted and very grateful for my care.

July 22, 2015

Dr. Tabin did the after visit notes with me still in the room- most doctors do these after you and don't make you wait in the room in silence as they type everything out for 15 minutes. I wish I had been told the few things that I needed and was able to leave without waiting for the doctor to figure out how to enter something into EPIC.

July 21, 2015

very respectful, genuinely concerned, and I left without any questions

July 20, 2015

I was extremely comforted by the care and treatment I received.

July 04, 2015

provider took the time to explain every thing and provide a good plan of care.

July 01, 2015

The doctor was the only positive thing about my experienced that day.

July 01, 2015

I was prescribed eye drops that in the end didn't work out for me. I called and told my doctor that I wasn't going to be taking them and was called that same day to make sure I was doing okay without them. That was really nice.

June 18, 2015

I am a professor emeritus at the University of Utah Medical School. I felt very proud of the availability, rapidity, carefulness, and quality of the care I received. It certainly has to be among the best in the world!

June 12, 2015

I'm so glad I came in for an appointment, everybody there was great and I left feeling relieved that my eyes were finally in competent and concerned hands. It was also really awesome that everybody there worked around my schedule to make sure I had a speedy follow-up - even though it had to be in a different clinic out of town. Thanks guys!

May 26, 2015

Great job!

May 25, 2015

Dr. Tabin (spelling?) was excellent; she did a very comprehensive exam and completely checked every part of my eye and eye lids for chemical debris that could still be present in my eye. She then had my eye irrigated to wash out everything. She rechecked my eye and ordered antibiotics.

May 08, 2015

Excellent experience. Very helpful, concerned. Good helpful information on what happened to my eye and for follow-up care.

April 27, 2015

She was assuring that I did the right thing to come in which felt good.

April 23, 2015

Dr. Tabin was awesome, efficient when I saw her and very good at explaining my condition. just wish the wait and lack of being informed about delays was there, but she was really good.

April 20, 2015

The doctor who saw me was very thorough and attentive to detail. She has a wonderful bedside manner and is a tremendous asset to the Moran Eye Center.

April 10, 2015

see previous comment. the doctor was more capable than the assistant or first person to see my son.

April 10, 2015

A written list of the names of the recommended OTC products the Dr. suggested would be useful.

March 13, 2015

The time provided was very generous

February 12, 2015

I didn't know this clinic was here but am glad to know of it in case of emergency. A valuable service.

February 08, 2015

Very positive experience. care provider took time to answer all questions and explained the physiology and morphology thoroughly

January 21, 2015

Everyone was very caring and considerate.

January 12, 2015

Gotta love Dr. Tabin! Friendly and really knows her stuff.

January 09, 2015

Dr. Tabin was skilled and trustworthy but lacked interpersonal communication that boosted any confidence or feelings of reassurance which I think would have been easy to do given my condition.

January 08, 2015

The Doctor seemed very distracted. She has a resident in the room during the exam and the resident had to correct her a couple of times on some data entry.

January 07, 2015

Dr. Tabin is amazing!!!

December 13, 2014

I had received a metal shaving in Mayeye and they spent plenty of time with me taking care of my eye removing it and explain what was going on

December 11, 2014

Dr. Tabin made a diagnosis and treated it promptly. She was great.

December 09, 2014

very thorough and efficient

December 04, 2014

Dr. Tabin spent a long time with me even though it was my first time to see her and it was the walk-in clinic. I was impressed.

November 24, 2014

Even though the doctor had a lot of emergencies going on, she gave me a very thorough exam and was able to resolve my problem. She also took time to explain to me everything she was doing and then all the info I needed for post-treatment.

November 24, 2014

Dr Tabin was very knowledgeable. But her demeanor was somewhat perfunctory and not personal at all. The third-yr med student, Holly, seemed more concerned with my time spent waiting and health issues. I trust Dr Tabin, but my questions and concerns seemed secondary to her getting done.

November 07, 2014

Dr. Jean Tabin is excellent and worth recommending.

November 03, 2014

The Morgan Eye Clinic will be my first choice if the occasion arises that I might need eye surgery.

October 27, 2014

It was all a very good experience and I will come back and would recommend anyone to go.

October 03, 2014

The doctor was thorough , informative and concerned about my situation.

September 26, 2014

Very positive experience with technician and physician.

September 21, 2014

Dr. Tabin was great; she explained herself well, was patient, and thorough.

September 05, 2014

Very good experience then as also experience anytime previously.

September 01, 2014

kind, informative, excellent

August 31, 2014

I thought Dr. Tabin was wonderful; I felt like I was in the hands of an expert

August 31, 2014

Excellent care by Dr. Jean Tobin (?spelling). She was very thorogh in the examination, explained what she was doing and why.

August 29, 2014

dr Tabin was very effective and responsive. I felt I was in good hands. the only problem is, on reflection later, I felt she could have been more informative about the resolution of my problem, rather than mostly description.

August 26, 2014

Dr. Trabin (sp?) was through and very good in explain what she was going to do and why. I felt great confidence with her.

August 25, 2014

Dr. Tabin was very courteous, also very professional, and she inspires a lot of confidence. She was very thorough, she examined and re-examined my eyes in detail, and she explained not only what she was doing but also why. She treaded me like a human being and not like an anonymous case.

July 30, 2014

Jean Tabin was excellent and called in Dr. Bell for further exam and consultation

July 18, 2014

Dr TAbin was awesome. She worked me in at an odd time and I was very grateful for it. She is an excellent provider

July 07, 2014

The doctor was so overworked and busy that she had to keep running back and forth from room to room.

July 04, 2014

As described before seemed fatigued and pre-occupied but overall exam was thorough and follow up recommended.

June 19, 2014

Although my problem probably was not extraordinary, the Dr. treated me with respect and greatly helped me.

June 09, 2014

She was excellent.

June 02, 2014

Care provider was very rushed as I was the last person and she knew how long I had waited. Seemed like she was stressed and just wanted to get me out of there.

May 18, 2014

Excellent care from Dr. Tabin. I felt she not only explained things but was willing to listen to my concerns and fears.

April 26, 2014

Dr. Taubin was excellent! She thoroughly checked out my problem and explained what was going on. I have probably never had such a detailed exam. I very much appreciated her concern. She was even concerned enough she called one of the other doctors to come and verify to make sure my eye was ok. I was impressed with the level of service I received.

March 25, 2014

My regular doctor was not in the triage, but my care on this visit was a doctor of equal quality. When I return for the annual visit, I'll be with my primary care doctor.

March 24, 2014

Dr. Tabin was kind, thorough, and very professional. She is a total delight!

March 17, 2014

Dr Tabin put my mind at ease as to the problem, and what I should do to treat the problem

March 12, 2014

Much better than our local eye doctor's office

February 10, 2014

Very knowledgeable staff. Thorough exam

February 10, 2014

She was a very good doctor and I appreciated her calling in Dr. Patel for a second opinion. She even followed up with me Saturday morning.

February 08, 2014

Dr. Jean Tabin was wonderful to work with when I went to the Triage, twice in one week. When she was unsure of anything, she called in one of the specialists before making any decisions. She was thorough, kind and helpful. I was grateful for her assistance.

February 03, 2014

Dr. Tabin is an EXCELLENT physician/care giver. She is friendly, articulate, and concerned.

January 29, 2014

I felt that Dr. Tabin was more professional and intrested me that Dr. Spencer (first visit)

January 28, 2014

the clinic was able to schedule my biopsy late Friday so that I would not have to return on Monday ( I live in Jackson, WY) and they were concerned about the results since I was on prednisone. The entire staff was concerned about doing what was best for my health.

January 28, 2014

The doctor was great!

January 13, 2014

I was pleased that the time did not seemed rushed and that all my questions were answered with clear explanations.

December 21, 2013

she was dressed very inappropriately, that was very distracting. also, she didn't seem to care about my concerns or listen to why I was worried. she was rude about my contact use and seemed to blame my situation on that.

December 20, 2013

I felt like I received the same treatment and time consideration that they would have given to a family member.

December 19, 2013

I was disappointed at the cost of the name brand eye drop.The doctor asked me if I had insurance and then said the insurance would cover the prescription. I think offering another option that would have been cheaper, should have been given as a choice.

December 16, 2013

Dr. Tabin was very complete in her investigations of the problem. While it turned out to not be what she diagnosed, I had confidence in her findings. She contacted my personal doctor and updated him with the information which I appreciated very much. Dr Tabin is not as friendly as I personally like my doctors, but I was not there for friendliness, I was there for medical treatment which she competently proviced.

December 08, 2013

I'm already considering bringing in my daughter for what may be the same issue just not as severe.

December 05, 2013

Felt that I had received a thorough and extensive examination.

November 18, 2013

I appreciated the thoroughness of the exam and discussion.

November 18, 2013

very thorough

November 08, 2013

The computer was really problematic.

November 04, 2013

Dr Tabin's "bedside" manner is not the greatest. She may be very talented in her field, which is, of course, what ultimately matters--that she knows what she's doing. But a patient's confidence drops a bit when a clinician is not as warm and, thus, doesn't make the important connection with the patient that allows for that confidence. She seemed rushed, as well. Which is pretty much the norm in the health care system these days, so that's not a specific negative reflection on her. (Some, or a lot of that lack of "warmth" is likely just her personality. But perhaps if enough patients report back her lack in that regard, she may make an effort to be more in tune with patients and to show more genuine concern.)

November 04, 2013

Impressed with the thoroughness of the exam.

October 22, 2013


October 08, 2013

Excellent care. The examination was thorough and detailed. Nothing felt rushed. The referral for a sonogram was appropriate and reassuring.

August 20, 2013

Dr. Tabin was excellent. Very thorough and complete. Great explanations abotu my problem.

August 19, 2013

I was the last patient of the day, so that may be why I felt rushed. I had a lot of concerns that I felt were brushed off. However, I did feel confident in her ability to treat the problem.

August 05, 2013

Great team!

August 04, 2013

The providers' attention, caring and sensitivity to the illness I was experiencing was exceptional, both the assistants and my doctor.

August 03, 2013

very good
