It had been a while since I went to an eye place with such courtesy, I love the attention I received and the professionalism.


I can never say enough good things about this office! I have been going to the eye doctor for over 40 years. Dr. Krause is the bomb! I have never had anyone sit and explain every detail with plastic eyeball parts and pictures and diagrams and internet information like she does. They are consistently courteous! They have gotten me in ASAP when we felt like it was an emergency with my retina history. LOVE it here!!
