    in West Jordan, UT |
    My experience with Dr. Alder and his office staff was excellent in every way. I had cataract surgery on both eyes. Everything went very well. Dr. Alder's information about how the surgery would proceed was excellent. He very adequately answered all of my questions including the exact cost. I very much enjoyed his very personable demeanor as well of the professionalism of him and his staff. My office wait time has never been longer than 3 or 4 minutes.
