    My whole experience treating a cataract has been an astonishingly good one. I had previously been treated for a cataract in my other eye in a well-regarded clinic in Northern Utah. But I had Dr Larochelle treat this one and the difference was night and day making my previous experience seem almost barbaric. My results are astonishing and the entire experience from the many staff who were with me during surgery, the equipment used in surgery, the procedures and the thoroughness of everyone involved was several levels above what I had previously experienced. I not only would recommend Moran and Dr Larochelle but I actively AM recommending them to anyone who might need their services. Thank you
