June 07, 2016

good and fiendly

June 01, 2016

Dr. Chortkoff walks in the treatment room with a smile and cheery greeting. Even though she had a full schedule (which I know, because I was being worked in), she takes time to be very thorough. She listens to my concerns and addresses my questions and concerns. I am very confident in Dr. Chortkoff and would definitely recommend her to others.

May 31, 2016

I was very impressed that Dr. Chortkoff had reviewed my chart THOROUGHLY prior to meeting with me. I was a little nervous to meet with a new doctor in fear that something may be overlooked or a different opinion or diagnosis would not play in my favor. After leaving my appointment I can say a am 100% comfortable with Dr. Chortkoff and I fully trust that she will provide the best care for my vision!

May 31, 2016

My need for an appointment was urgent because of my past history with a similar problem. Not only was the appointment easily scheduled, but Dr Chortkoff was able to arrange for Dr Shakoor to see me during the same visit.

May 26, 2016

I am very impressed with Dr. Chortkoff. I feel very confident of her abilities and her concern for my condition.

Excellent care.

April 25, 2016

excellent care

April 22, 2016

Dr. Norm Zabriskie was my doctor first in the clinic. He was outstanding. When I heard, from him that he would be leaving I was a little disappointed. I had someone else before Dr. Sorthoff(? spelling) who was nice but I didn't warm up to. Dr. Sortkoff was extremely helpful, friendly and wonderful about providing information about my conditions and other eye questions I had

April 21, 2016

I'm very fond of Dr Chortkoff---she is thorough and thougtful.

February 13, 2016


February 09, 2016

I have moved out of state, but return for eye care because of my confidence in the medical staff of Moran.

February 06, 2016

Dr. Chortkoff is very, very good about explaining procedures, conditions, reasons, and expected outcomes. Her dedication to good care is abundantly clear. She is diligent about performing or ordering tests to confirm or negate clinical impressions. This patient is convinced all manner of reasonable care is being provided.

February 05, 2016

Dr. Chortkoff is the perfect example of what care a docor should offer.

February 05, 2016

good experience with care providers

January 28, 2016

I really appreciate the way she explains things and that she took time to show me the pictures that were taken.

January 23, 2016

I have complete confidence in Dr, Chertkoff.

January 22, 2016

Dr. Chortkoff put me on a new medication to treat my glaucoma. She gave me free samples of the new medication and Refresh soothing eye drops (OTC) to try out to see how I tolerated them before I spent money on a prescription or purchase of OTC.

January 09, 2016

Dr. Chortkoff is an excellent doctor who shows great respect in listening to any information I share with her. Her concern for my well being is greatly appreciated.

January 07, 2016

Very knowledgeable, understanding, and empathic. I am very willing to refer others to her.

December 11, 2015

As I said before, I come from Idaho to the Moran, because I feel like I am in very good hands and treated very well. Dr. Chortkoff is wonderful--she is curious, takes time with me, looks over my records carefully and compares prior years with the current--she is not in a hurry at all. And as I said she is curious. I feel like I am maximizing the probability that any problems will be discovered in a timely way by coming to the Moran.

December 07, 2015

Kind and personable. Told me what was going on during exam. Gave info for my questions and concerns. Thorough, but kind.

November 30, 2015

I originally came to The Moran Eye Center for a second opinion. I ended up becoming a patient. I could not be happier with that decision.

November 30, 2015

Dr. C is just awesome!!

November 19, 2015

You ALL are wonderful.

November 19, 2015

This was the first time I was seen by Dr. Chortkoff and I was very favorably impressed with her efficiency, personality, technique and knowledge. She explained things clearly, was thorough, and followed through with informing me of test results. She used hand sanitizer when she came into the examination room, and again every time she handled the computer and then examined my eyes. She even put a clean Kleenex on the counter on which to place my eye glasses while she was examining my eyes! She was not rushed and was a good listener. I would definitely recommend her to others.

November 16, 2015

Dr. Chortkoff is very caring and concerned about my eye. She cares very much and wants to help me.

November 13, 2015

October 10, 2015

Doctor and assistant very informative and caring.

September 25, 2015

I have already recommended Dr. Chortkoff to others who have followed up with appointments.

September 20, 2015

I had been going to see Dr. Zabriski in the beginning, about 19 yrs ago, but because he is so busy now, I am very satisfied seeing Dr. Chortcoff. She is very nice and concerned about my eyes and the I am happy to see her. I am very confident in her decisions and I know she would confer with Dr. Zabriski. if needed.

September 13, 2015

Dr. Chortkoff is very thoughtful and caring towards me.

September 11, 2015

The medical assistant explained about the testing and how the machine worked. She reduced my stress over the testing procedure itself. I felt more confident in the procedure once I understood better how it worked. This was the most informative explanation I had received about the machine/testing although this was my 4th or 5th time for such a procedure over the past several years.

September 06, 2015

Susan Chortoff is an excellent communicator and comes across as a person truly concerned about her patients. She is very good about explaining eye conditions. I find her to be one of the best reasons for getting treatment at the Moran Eye Center.

August 31, 2015

dr. chogtkoff is always wonderfull and really makes me feel well taken care of.

August 31, 2015

she is awesome!! feel very good talking with her.

August 31, 2015

Dr. Chortoff has been excellent in all aspects - she has gone the extra mile to give me the best care. She took the initiative to check the outcome of the Path report for a growth removed from my right eye. She then called my home and cell phone to discuss it with me, expedited an appt. at Huntsman and got me in two weeks earlier than I had been able to do on my own - changed her schedule to see me to follow up after tests at Huntsman and overall has shown a caring and personal interest in my care. I have never experienced that kind of care from any doctor in any discipline in the past and I greatly appreciate her interest, professionalism the care she provides for her patients

August 08, 2015

Had to wait longer than ever before for Dr. but after she was there, she took good care of me and made me feel at ease.

August 03, 2015

Dr. Chortkoff explained my condition and what to expect in the future. She was very helpful in telling me how I might proceed in getting new glasses since I most likely would be needing cataract surgery in the near future. And what I should be thinking about when that time comes. I appreciated her candor.

July 31, 2015

Dr. Chortkoff is a perfect example of an excellent caregiver. She is friendly, caring, professional and knowledgeable. I have the utmost confidence in her care of my eyes.

July 14, 2015

Doctor Chortkof is a great physician at Moran..she is thorough, asks and answers any questions and keeps you informed on the progress of your vision.

July 14, 2015

I greatly appreciate the service I had from Doctor Susan C. She is an outstanding physician and great doctor with her patients. She takes time to answer any questions and concerns.

July 09, 2015

Dr. Goldsmith was excellent and so is Dr. Chortkoff

June 21, 2015

I originally came to the Moran Eye center for a second opinion and was referred to Dr Zabriskie. I was later put under Dr. Chortkoffs care. I can't say enough good about her, and the entire staff.

May 29, 2015

Dr. Chortkoff is wonderful. caring and empathetic, informative and a good listener .

February 16, 2015


February 09, 2015

Dr. Chortkoff was very good at explaining my situation and asked me if I had any questions or concerns. She gave me a good secure feeling about my condition and where we go from here.

January 16, 2015

We were not Dr. Chortkoff's typical patient since my daughter has no serious eye problems. Still, she spent time with us and explained things to my 12-year-old daughter in detail without seeming condescending. Dr. Chortkoff's assistant (who performed the eye exam) was also terrific and very thorough. I am sorry that I don't remember his name.

January 14, 2015

Dr. Chortkoff (sp) was personable, knowledgable, caring, and efficient. I am and was fortunate to see her. I would be happy to recommend her.

January 13, 2015

Dr. Chortkoff identified the problem I have been having with my glasses. I have been complaining about the right lens for a year, and she was able to determine that the astigmatism measurement had been left out of the prescription. Previously, technicians and doctors alike just told me I tested at 20/20 and nothing could be done. Since I had an appointment later that day with Dr. Christiansen, the low vision specialist, she decided to let him provide the prescription. I appreciate Dr. Chortkoff for determining that my glasses were NOT correct.

January 09, 2015

Great technicians and Dr. Chortkoff is excellent...sorry if I spelled her name wrong!

December 21, 2014

A very good experience

December 17, 2014

November 01, 2014

excellent experience very nice person

October 22, 2014

The doctor is always willing to answer all of my questions in a courteous manner.

October 17, 2014

Dr. Chortkoff has been seeing me for a few years now. I feel like she is interested in me as a person and that she is a friend.

October 08, 2014

September 20, 2014

i asked the doctor about the prescription and she said that the PA had ordered 5 bottles but didn't check the number or name of the correct one.

August 14, 2014

Dr. Susan C. Chortkoff was very good, she made sure the I knew what she was doing and why. Had other test done when she saw something that she was concerned about and explaned why she was doing it.

August 11, 2014

I really like Dr Chortkoff because she took her time with me and answered all my questions.

all excellent

July 17, 2014

very good

July 14, 2014

Dr. Chortkoff is excellent in all aspects.

June 30, 2014

When the Dr. first diagnosed my problem in the fall, she said I had a condition often seen in people with high blood sugar, and to get my physician to test it. If she had said it looked like "Diabetic Retinopathy" I would have taken it more seriously. So in this case, simplifying the language was not the best approach to use with a patient with a PhD.

June 27, 2014

Dr Chortkoff takes the time to explain things on my level. She shows great concern to my worries.

June 16, 2014

Very good experience

June 05, 2014

I liked the doctor's honesty and obvious concern about my issues.

May 27, 2014

For such a busy Doctor, Norm Zabriskie is most caring and efficient, you feel he would do anything possible to make you better, I know I am in the best hands.

April 10, 2014

Overall it is always an excellent experience. I have such faith in Dr. Chortkoff.

April 06, 2014

I'm sorry, I felt that the doctor did not talk with me about tests she was recommending--I did not have any say in what she ordered. They were just ordered.

March 22, 2014

my doctor treated me very well and I know that I'm getting the very best care.

March 17, 2014


March 14, 2014

Very courteous and informative.

February 27, 2014

Excellent, professional care

October 12, 2013

the doctor was very knowledgeable and caring.will recommend doctor to everyone.

October 11, 2013

I really appreciated Dr. Chortkoff taking the extra time to help me understand related vision issues beyond corrective lenses and options to address them.

It made a dramatic difference.

September 25, 2013

I was impressed with how well she worked with Jackson and her manners were kind. She was focused on us and didn't make us feel rushed.

September 04, 2013

Very good

September 02, 2013

The dr kept changing her mind on which eye needed the additional drops. We got confused.

This section is a little bit difficult to rate. I did not know until I left the office that Dr. Chortkoff was now "my physician". Confidence and likelihood of recommending her are really yet to be seen. I have only had one visit with her.

good experience

As someone new to the area, this was my first visit seeking ongoing eye care. I found the care from both Julie and Dr Chortkoff to be excellent.

It was my first visit with this provider--I had previously been seen by Dr. Goldsmith. I found Dr Chortkof to be both personable and capable, so feel quite comfortable transferring my care to her.
