very good

January 22, 2015

Dr. Mamalis is very personal.

January 19, 2015

Since the results of the surgery were not good, I'm a little hesitant to recommend this surgery to others. I was told that problems of this nature occur in one out of a thousand surgeries. I'm sorry to have been the one.

January 09, 2015


January 03, 2015

This is one of the best healthcare experiences I've had in years. I appreciate all that has been done to help me and the exceptional attention to detail throughout my contact with the Moran Eye Center.

December 28, 2014

Dr. Mamalis is extremely knowledgeable, efficient and very courteous. I highly recommend him to all my friends and family

December 26, 2014

Could not have been better

December 19, 2014

Dr. Mamalis and his staff were wonderful. The explanations were so well done I know I can depend on my eyes getting the right attention. Thanks so much

December 15, 2014

Dr Mamalis was very calm and knowledegable about my concerns

December 14, 2014


December 12, 2014

I very much appreciate the skill, professionalism, and kindness extended to me by the entire staff.

December 11, 2014

very good

December 08, 2014

I saw a different doctor last year...who by the way was very nice. But I will make sure I get this doctor again! He was very concerned about the well being of my eyes and the issues that I have.

December 08, 2014

I have already recommended my care provider and the eye center to a friend.

December 05, 2014

Dr. Mamalis is great.

December 03, 2014

Very pleased with the care and attention received.

November 10, 2014

Problem encountered previously but was handled with an entirely different treatment protocol and approach in the past. Provider seemed to question my report on results.

November 04, 2014

Have always received quality care with all my questions answered

October 19, 2014

dr Mamalis is wonderful. I love going to him. so kind, caring, and considerate

October 14, 2014

They were very good to me at the Moran Eye Center. I felt like a member of the family.

October 10, 2014

Dr. Mamalis saved my husbands life years ago with his quick decision making. I trust him in all aspects. He is one of the finest Dr. I know.

October 06, 2014

I would and have highly recommended Dr Mamalis and Moran to others.

October 05, 2014

My doctor and his staff have me for life! They care and give me the best service ever! That also goes for the office staff, again Wonderful! I would recommend these people to everyone I know!

October 02, 2014

The PA provided some information about my eyes. The Doctor referred me to a specialist for further analysis of my problem

October 01, 2014

Dr. Mammalis is great. I had seen the same doctor for about 20 years before seeing and was beyond happy with the referral. He always explains things REALLY well, and gave me a sheet of recommended products to use that was very helpful. I like that he uses appropriate medical terminology as well as explaining it without dumbing it down too much to make me feel offended.

September 28, 2014

Dr. Mamalis is wonderful. He is patient, kind and very caring to me! Have recommended him to many of my friends.

September 25, 2014

could not have been better

September 14, 2014

Very Good

September 08, 2014

Dr. Mamalis is an amazing person. He is professional, caring and gentle. His explanations are easy to understand and his attitude is one of total interest in my personal situation. He takes the proper amount of time to make sure the examination and follow-up observations and suggestions are completely understood. He does not rush through the exam or consultation, yet he is efficient and thorough. I would recommend Dr. Mamalis without question or reservation.

September 06, 2014

Excellent care from all involved

August 31, 2014

Smooth process, nice team.

August 29, 2014

very good

August 28, 2014


August 27, 2014

I woud recommend Dr. Mammalis to anyone and everyone.

August 22, 2014

This was a very good experience for me.

August 22, 2014

appreciated the printout of the appointment results, nice to have that to refer to. Dr. Mamalis is incredible.

August 20, 2014

Dr. Mamalis was the first of 3 opthalmologists I've consulted for my symptoms and the first to take my report of symptoms seriously enough to look for less obvious/less common explanation(s). As a retired physician myself, I believe this should be "standard of care"..but real-world experience says otherwise. I'm grateful for his considered attention.

August 17, 2014

I have been with Dr. Mamalis for 15 years and always been pleased and impressed with my office visits--infrequent though they have been, as my vision has remained normal and healthy, apart from the usual effects of age. He and his assistants are always courteous, professional, and easy to talk to about my vision care.

August 16, 2014

No bad experience.

August 15, 2014


August 14, 2014

I had a wonderful experience with Dr Mamalis. My eye surgery gave me a new life. Prior to this I was always exausted, I worried so much about making mistakes on the things I did day to day, I realized now that all of this was caused by my poor vision. On my first appointment with him I was so impressed on how not only him. but also his office staff, took such a good care of me. I was so scared !!! So grateful for Dr Mamalis!

August 13, 2014

Dr. Mamalis is wonderful.

August 12, 2014

These answers are all based on my experience with the physician, no other personnel.

August 11, 2014

I am pleased with the service

August 10, 2014

always in a rush

August 08, 2014

The written summary of the appointment included that I should take "fish oil" for my eyes -- the Doctor never mentioned that at all so I don't know how much to take or what to buy. I was unable to read the form until later on. He did review the information about the eye vitamins. There is also a big difference between the technician and the doctor in terms of service and care. You should be evaluating them differently because I was essentially seen by two people.

August 05, 2014

I will be using Moran and this Dr for any future visits. I was originally scheduled to have a cataract removed from my left eye which has very limited vision. The surgery was to be done in Rock Springs Wyoming. I asked my eye Dr. in Rock Springs about some blurriness I was having in my right eye and he said that there was nothing that could be done now as it was very minor. The Dr. at Moran told me that it was not a cataract but something with the eye its self and he could correct it that day with laser, which I had him do. He not only corrected the problem I had with my right eye, but kept me from un necessary surgery on my bad eye. I was to have a follow up exam scheduled on the 21 of August but the computers were down and they could not schedule but said they would notify me. I am having an issue with quick blurriness (like sticking eye lid or tears) in the eye tht the laser was done on.

July 23, 2014

I live in another state. I come to the clinic when I am visiting my Utah based family. It is unlikely that I would have the opportunity to recommend The Moran Eye Clinic to many others.

July 21, 2014

Very Good

July 17, 2014

Dr. Mamalas has very good bedside manor. He is very pleasant and seem to take real concern for my eyesight.

July 15, 2014

Took the time to answer satisfactorily my list of questions.

July 14, 2014


July 12, 2014

I have already recommended to a co worker who might need glasses.

July 11, 2014

I was pleased with Dr. Mamalis'care and I would recommend him to others.

July 03, 2014

Dr. Nick Mamalis holds my highest respect. He is a true professional, straight forward answers, listens, and is a consummate professional in his field. Would recommend him to all.

July 01, 2014


June 26, 2014

all members of the team are great, couldn't have asked for better care.

June 24, 2014

Care providers were terrific. Had an awful first experience with getting my eyes dilated, but they were completely understanding and caring. Terrific all around.

June 23, 2014

Everything was good

June 19, 2014

Everything that was an option at this time was done. I just have to be patient and continue to survive

June 18, 2014


June 12, 2014

the staff and Dr are very people oriented. you should be proud they are on you list of fantastic providers

June 06, 2014

Have already

June 05, 2014


June 03, 2014


June 02, 2014

I have already told friends of my excellent experience

May 27, 2014

He was very kind, professional, and works very well with my diabetes and eyesight management. Great doctor, he is the reason I come back.

May 21, 2014

Love this doctor!

May 20, 2014

Dr. Mamalis took extra care to examine my eyes for macular degeneration after I expressed worry about the condition. He was very thorough in the examination and explained everything fully.

May 06, 2014

Once I got an appointment, my experience was very good.

April 21, 2014

no hesitance in recommending Dr Mamalis. my brother questioned last night how one knows their doctor is "the best in his field". I offered the information about his experience and field of research. I feel very confident in Dr M's abilities.

April 19, 2014

Very Very Good

April 14, 2014

my right eye has been very blurry since the surgery and i am getting glare again at night. i wish we could have fixed it today. i was told i would hardly ever need my glasses and i need them all the time. i am worried about my new insurance. they said that they would cover you and i hope that is true.

April 11, 2014

I'm very pleased with Dr. Mamalis!

April 09, 2014

Dr. Mamalis is wonderful!

April 08, 2014

Great experience.

April 07, 2014

Dr. Mammilas is very professional and courteous. He had a scribe and tech trainee in the room and was not distracting.

April 07, 2014

She was so knowledgeable and quick. Enjoyed talking with her.

April 05, 2014

When the doctor examined my eyes, I was impressed because he knew what he was looking for and was abletp describe my lens implants. The one in my left eye as been in since 1980 and is still working. He also gave me information about both implants whic I never knew before. Bravo for the doctor.

March 29, 2014

very thorough

March 21, 2014

Dr. Mammalis is outstanding; kind, professional, excellent in what he does

March 18, 2014

Time spent with doctor seemed short but everything I needed to know was answered so no problem.

March 16, 2014

Totally a good experience!!

March 16, 2014

I have come to Dr. Mammalis for several years and have come to trust him completely.

March 15, 2014

very good experience

March 14, 2014

very good

February 23, 2014

I have already recommended the clinic to my wife

February 21, 2014

Dr. Mamalis is always thorough and professional.

February 17, 2014

Everyone was very good about explaining everything to me.

February 15, 2014

See comments on previous page. Dr. Mammalis performed my cataract surgery in 2009. He is a class act. Knowledgeable and caring.

February 08, 2014

Dr. Mamalis excels in describing what he is going to do and why. I usually have questions--I am very interested--and he answers them clearly and well.

February 07, 2014

My overall experience was excellent. I would highly recommend Moran and Dr. Mamalis

February 06, 2014

Very Good experience - follow up in one year

February 05, 2014

I love my doctor, and won't see anyone else unless it is an emergency, but there is always a considerable wait between my appointment time and actually seeing him.

February 04, 2014

Dr Mamalis is excellent .

February 03, 2014

Even tough I have confidence in Dr Mamalis, I always feel rushed, not even having the time to formulate questions. He sits at the computer terminal to finish some work while his assistant tells I should leave, making it clear he thought I was taking too much time. As I was leaving the room, I was given a summary of the findings and recommendations of the visit. When I read it after getting home (I was clearly not supposed to take the time to read them in the room), there were various findings that were not mentioned at all and now I had no way of asking questions. I think patients deserve more time and courtesy.

January 24, 2014

very good

January 21, 2014

Most of my care was NOT provided primarily by a doctor. A medical assistant did everything except my internal eye exam.

January 17, 2014

Dr. Mamalis was very thourough and explained everything.

January 16, 2014

I am so fortunate to have been going to Dr. Mamalis for years. He is always so patient and informative. All of these high ratings apply equally to his PA.

January 13, 2014

I have recommended your center in the past and will contiue to do so.

January 11, 2014

I wish he could tell me anything about the prognosis and what the future may bring or what to expect.

January 10, 2014

My experience at Moran Eye Center was excellent and I would recommend them as I was recommended by friends and by others personal testimonials of their experiences with the eye center.

January 05, 2014

everyone there was effective and still caring. they all explained what they were doing and why and made sure I understood what was going on. they checked the prescriptions on my glasses, taught me how to determine which ones would work best. dr. Mamilis is the only eye I will see now. I know he understands me, listens to me, cares about me and I trust him! his staff is wonderful helping keep up prescriptions and appointments and are very willing to help in anyway they can. I'll be back & sending or bringing my family & friends. I also love the locations!

January 02, 2014

dr. Mamalis is an excellent doctor- professional,caring,explaining and understanding.

December 29, 2013

Of all my medical care providers (and there are many) Moran ranks near the top

December 25, 2013

I have recommended Dr. Mamalis to others.

December 22, 2013


December 16, 2013

Dr. Mammalis and Mr. Proctor were very professional and caring.

December 13, 2013

Dr. Mamalis explained what he will be testing or looking at in the eyes. He was relaying the diagnosis to his assistant so he could input the information in the computer. The visit was well paced and easy to follow. His instructions were specific and easy to follow.

December 12, 2013

very good

December 10, 2013

The doctor was very good to explain to me what my condition was and how best to take care of it. I was provided with a written list of helpful hints and names of medications best suited to my condition.

December 06, 2013

I Love Dr. Mamalis! He always lets me know what is happening. In surgery it was so calming to know how everything was progressing and he's positive comments.

December 03, 2013

From beginning to end all went smooth. No time wasted on this visit.

November 20, 2013

Dr. Mamalis is wonderful! I would not see any other provider. He allows sufficient time to review your problems, questions and always gives me very complete answers. He always has time to chat and ask about my family.

November 19, 2013

My experience was very satisfying.

November 18, 2013

I have recommended Dr. Mamalis to my friends and family. I really appreciate the thoroughness of the exam, and his office staff's ability to get me in to see a retinal specialist that day, rather than me having to drive 2.5 hours on another day.

November 18, 2013

the doctor was very nice and professionals

November 12, 2013

There was a tech in training and Dr. Mammalis was in teaching mode. It is good to see skills and proficiencies explained and taught to new people so that the overall treatment of the patient is consistent and uniform.

November 11, 2013

Dr. is very competent, has an excellent manner, and is very busy.

November 11, 2013


November 11, 2013

I was given written instructions that mentioned I stopped taking Metformin. I called to see if I was supposed to stop the Metformin or if it was an error or if there were side affects to the eye drops from Metformin. I was told a technician would call back. No one ever did.

November 06, 2013

I am very impressed with Dr. Mamalis. He is of course extremely knowledgeable, but also friendly and courteous.

November 04, 2013

Dr. Mamalis was very kind and I appreciated him explaining my condition to me in simple terms. I felt that he encouraged me with what I needed to do to better my eyesight.

November 04, 2013

Always excellent care by Dr Mammalis

November 01, 2013

Dr Mamalis performed the cataract surgery on my right eye a couple weeks ago. we were not expecting a positive change in vision because of many other eye surgeries and previous damage. However, for the first time in several years, I have great improvement, such that I have a whole new world I can see now. dr Mamalis is so compassionate in working with me to bring the best possible vision to severely damaged eyes. I really appreciate the superb care I get at the Moran Eye Center.

October 28, 2013

Dr. Mammalis always includes me in the examination telling me in plain terms what he is seeing. I appreciate the effort and the printed explanation is very helpful.

October 28, 2013

excellent care

October 21, 2013

Dr. Mamalis went above and beyond to be complete, communicate well and he is exceptionally caringone thing that I really liked ---he did NOT chart on the computer during my visit....He took care of me instead !

October 21, 2013

have already recommended Dr Mammalis and Moran Eye Ctr since this visit

October 11, 2013

I have always been treated well at this facility!

October 03, 2013

As I mentioned, I have confidence in Dr. Mamalis, but his assistant that did the eye exam was hurry, hurry, hurry and I am not sure that he got the prescription as correct as possible and did not seem to be concerned about the mirrow type imaging that I was seeing during the exam.

September 23, 2013

This is the best care provided in my life and I am an old guy.

September 23, 2013

smells nice

September 20, 2013

Dr. Mamalis took the time to explain everything to me in layman's terms and I felt he cared about my situation and outcome. I feel I am in really competent care with him.

September 19, 2013

Dr. Mamalis is excellent at what he does.. very thorough and kind.

September 10, 2013

Excellent physician.

September 10, 2013

I had a few questions for Dr. Mammalis about something he noticed but didn't ask them all because I felt like he was rushing me.

September 09, 2013

All of the physicians that I have seen at Moran have been exceptional. The services have always been the best anyone could expect!

September 09, 2013

didn't really discuss follow up care

September 09, 2013

The Dr. and Technician were very good at listening to my concern for potential effects from a siezure I experienced in March of this year (2013) and were very thorough in the exam relating to tests that may find effects from my siezure.

September 09, 2013

I felt like I was respected treated with excelent care. I never felt dumb for asking any question.

September 06, 2013

they care providers where excellent & were very vocal in explaining all they were doing through out the process of my exam

August 27, 2013

Excellent Thank You.

August 26, 2013

My only concern at this point is that I left with the same problem I came in with.

August 26, 2013

I definitely recommend Dr. Mamalis and his staff. You might have to wait a while in Reception, but the wait is worth it. As a matter of fact, my mother is a patient of Dr. Mamalis, and she recommended him. Dilation drops give me a migraine, and he and his staff actually LISTENED! They were able to evaluate the blurriness problem I'm having without dilating my eyes! I am so grateful! He also evaluated my dry eyes. I will definitely go back to Dr. Mamalis when I am ready to get new glasses.

August 23, 2013


August 23, 2013

I've seen Dr. Mamalis for many years. He has always been very professional, as well as very caring.

August 14, 2013

I don't recommend

August 12, 2013

The ablation of cloudy tissue changed the focus of my eye. I need new lenses for that eye and, thus, need a new prescription.

August 12, 2013

I had an excellent experience with Dr Mamalis. I was there as a new patient for a routine exam, though I have a history of eye problems (optic neuritis, detached retina).

August 06, 2013

Geat doctor

August 05, 2013


August 05, 2013

Extremely happy with Dr. Mamalis!!!!

August 03, 2013

Dr. Mamalis is the best there is.

August 02, 2013

Have already recommended Dr. Mamalis to others.

July 28, 2013

Dr. Mamalis is a physician that in very knowledgeable and very understanding to work with in my care team. I have no problem recommending Dr. Mamalis to anyone, even helping those in the interior waiting area feel more comfortable with him when I hear them saying that it is their first visit because I have rusted by care to him for over ten years. Very understandable and includes me and informs me as to why we are changing care routines. Nice to be on MyChart now. Nice to have the assistant in the room making notes into MyChart so that Dr. Mamalis can continue to "dictate" and translate to me at the same time.

July 26, 2013

Excellent, couldn't expect any more or better treatment or service...

July 16, 2013

i had a good experience and the people were nice

July 11, 2013

The discharge sheet is very helpful

July 03, 2013

Good experience.

July 01, 2013

Dr. was patient in deconstructing the terminology. I will get further confirmation of my eye conditions upon a follow up visit in 6 weeks.

June 24, 2013

Dr. Mamalis is the best! So professional and caring.

June 21, 2013

This was the most pleasant surprise! The doctor explained the situation and options then let me make the decision. I felt no pressure from anyone to choose one option over another.

June 20, 2013

Surgery has yet to be done on my left eye, these comments reflect my surgery on the 20th of May.

June 18, 2013

Pleasant and informative

June 10, 2013

Excellent care provider... professional, thorough, courteous.

June 10, 2013

I think Dr. Mamalis is one of the best in the business. I always feel very satisfied after an appointment.

June 10, 2013

I trust the doctors and staff at this office

June 06, 2013


May 28, 2013

wait time is too long

May 27, 2013

Dr. Mamilis was good as always and I trust him completely

May 25, 2013

I have recommended Dr Mamalis to several people who now use his services.

May 24, 2013

He had no idea who I was...just came to do exam-->disappointing

May 22, 2013

amazed with the equipment

May 21, 2013

Great Doctor.

May 20, 2013

even though it had been 3 years since my last visit, he made me feel like i see him every week. very personable provider

May 09, 2013

I would have no hesitation recommending Dr. Mamalis. He is professional, courteous, kind, concerned, and uses layman's language when necessary. He also takes the trouble to schedule one's surgery at the best time for the patient (many of whom are diabetic).

May 06, 2013

I think this is the 3rd time I've seen Dr. Mammalis: he is always very professional, neither too warm or cool.

May 06, 2013

Dr. Mamalis is always great. Very professional, takes time to answer questions and explain everything.

May 05, 2013

The information provided concerning medications was a little confusing. I was given three different times to apply the medications.

April 23, 2013

Dr Mamales is the best. he had a student visiting from Duke Univ. with him and there was nothing uncomfortable for me while the student had a look into my eyes.

April 15, 2013

Everybody was great!

April 15, 2013

Not all the technical terms for the record are explained, without my having to ask

April 02, 2013

Had a boat load of test and left with no answers to my problems. So feel like you guys got your moneys worth but I still can't see like I should.

April 01, 2013

I have recommended Dr. Mammalis to many of my friends and business associates that need a very skilled and personable eye specialist.

March 21, 2013

I would like them to spend some time explaining what my eyes are doing and the meaning of any of the complications they see.

March 18, 2013

Very good

March 11, 2013

I just don't remember how many minutes. I was pleased that I saw Dr. Mamalis at the location nearer my home. I am pleased with my surgery; this was a yearly check up and all is well. Thank you very much.

March 07, 2013

Mamalis is a credit to your organization.

February 28, 2013

Everyone I dealt with was exemplary in their professionalism and courtesy. I felt my examination was very thorough--there were a number of different tests using different machines and various technicians. All of them did a great job and explained what they were doing. Dr. Mamalis did a very thorough examination and diagnosis and explained everything very precisely.

February 25, 2013

I have full confidence in Dr. Mamalis

February 20, 2013

Dr. Mammalis is always extremely professional , courteous, friendly , and attentive. That is why I continue to see him for my vision needs.

February 05, 2013

Everyone took their time with me. I am very confident in Dr. Mamalis. He answered all of my questions.

February 03, 2013

My experience with the provider was great save for the huge wait. I would tell anyone coming to the Moran that the care is great but count on a long wait. That's been my experience but this wait was the longest and didn't involve a resident/fellow as is sometimes the case with visits that go long.

January 30, 2013

Dr was very kind to my mother, and she responed well to him. That is different for her.

January 25, 2013

Dr. had a student and a resident (I think) in the room with us and he was very skillful in interacting with them while also concentrating on me.

January 21, 2013

Have already sent several people to Dr. Mamalis.

January 15, 2013

Doctor Mamalis is the best. He seems to really care and does what is best for the patient.

January 14, 2013

I loved Dr. Mamalis

January 13, 2013

Dr. Mamalis is great! I have always been very impressed with his expertise and the results I have had from my Toric lens implants. He is very caring and explains everything very thoroughly and in a way I can undersatnd it.

January 09, 2013

Efficient visit

December 26, 2012

Despite my complaints of blurry vision since 2009 my glaucoma went undiagnosed by this incompetent doctor. I have lost vision in my left eye.

November 29, 2012

Very professional,friendly and informative as usual.

November 25, 2012

I came to the University due to the care I did not get from my Ophthalmologist at home. I really researched my doctors background and education and I know that my care would be of this stature as I have already been taking my father-in-law to a team of doctors there for some years: in the Dermatology Section.

November 19, 2012

Moran is the best!

Just recommended him to a friend today - very kind and understanding

October 23, 2012

Always fine

October 22, 2012

Dr. Mamalis is an excellent ophthalmologist. He always shows concern and compassion for my vision problems. When I leave his office, I feel like I have received the best care and treatment possible, and I know that when I return for future appointments, the same will be true. Dr. Mamalis has a great amount of knowledge and expertise, and I am always comfortable with the treatment plans he prescribes.

October 19, 2012

I've been seeing Dr. Mamalis for almost 20 years and have no plans to do otherwise!

October 19, 2012

Absolutely excellent! as well as "student doctor"

I would like to have more information about the procedure and what will be involved in the surgery that I am having.

October 01, 2012

Totally positive

September 28, 2012

Everyone was very nice, explaning what they were going to do, answered my questions, and were very helpful and professional.

September 26, 2012

The Doctor went into detail about my eyes and the treatment would help my sight.

September 17, 2012

I have scheduled an appointment for my wife this week because my experiece was so good.

September 10, 2012

I loved that the Dr. gave me written instructions for all my concerns. I didn't have to write with my eyes dilated. He was very thoughtful and helpful.

September 03, 2012

Again, I had no problem and no need for follow-up care. Everything went well, though and the doctor was fine.

September 03, 2012

The doctor had a medical student attending the exam. This may have accounted for the delay, but that was okay.

August 27, 2012

Dr Mammalis is a wonderful doctor. I would recommend him to everyone that needed eye care. I will use him again for my provider.

August 20, 2012

Nick Mamalis deserves his national reputation for excellence.

July 12, 2012

Dr. Mamalis seemed to be in a bit of a hurry. He did not read the information that the assistant had documented in my file in my presence.

July 09, 2012

The doctor's manner and tone were condescending, I would not recommend him.

July 09, 2012

Dr Mamalis and his staff were so efficient, supportive and caring, which put me at ease during a stressful time.

I have seen Dr. Mammalis for many years and have only had refraction changes; this is the first medical problem I have had related to my eyes and he arranged for immediate follow-up care. I appreciate how easy this made things for me.

I really appreciate Dr. Mamalis. He has been great!

June 05, 2012

as mentioned before, everything went well

June 04, 2012

Dr. Mamalis is very impressive. He performed my cataract surgeries and the whole experience has been great!

May 10, 2012

Dr. Mamalis is the best

May 10, 2012

Dr. Mamalis was very patient, and most importantly, was not condescending. I appreciated that he didn't focus on what had led to my eye problem (poor control of diabetes) and instead was straightforward but kind about treatment for it. I felt very comfortable and like I was in good hands.

I will always want to keep coming here!

March 22, 2012

Dr. Mamalis is very kind and reassuring.

March 15, 2012

Dr. Mamalis answered my questions and did not make me feel rushed. After I returned home, I thought of several more questions. I left a message asking for him to call me. He called back on the same day I left the message and spent time answering my questions thoroughly and giving me guidance on the decision for what kind of lens would work best for me when I had my cataract surgery. He didn't make me feel as though he was in a hurry or that my questions were unimportant. I am very pleased with the quality of care and service from Dr. Mamalis and all of the staff during my visit and and answering my phone calls and questions following my visit.

March 13, 2012

He even anticipated my questions.

March 13, 2012

Your entire staff did a great job of putting me at ease and helping me. Dr Mamalis was very interested in my care and took special effort to explain what was happening

good experience and eye drops very helpful

January 30, 2012

Dr. Mamalis is a wonderful doctor. He explains everything in a straightforward manner.

January 26, 2012

Felt that the provider could have spent more time with me. Appt was very quick in and out. Wondering how through it was?

January 26, 2012

We left without a solution to his problem and maybe there isn't one, he can read the eye charts in the office, but cannot see in the real world, he hasn't driven for months due to vision problems, so we are just where we started. He can't drive to work or work on the farm so we don't really don't know what to do from here. He told us to put eye drops in his eyes but that doesn't seem to be a solution. we'll give it a few days, but so far no change.

January 24, 2012

My interactions with Dr. Mamalis and his staff have always been good. I have no recommendations for improvement.

January 06, 2012

I feel like a pair of eyes, not a person. I will probably continue to use the Moran Eye Center because of my family history but I have seen this doctor several times and I feel that he doesn't listen to my concerns.

January 05, 2012

I appreciate Dr. Mamalis - I have seen him for years
