Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I decided to get my eyes checked on a whim while I was at the mall and they were able to fit me in. The tech who worked with me worked quickly yet carefully. Dr. Brown was very kind, professional, and knowledgeable."
    Rachel S. Urbandale, IA
  • "Super friendly, helpful and efficient staff and Dr. Brown is always great to work with. I am very happy with the care and services at this office."
    Beth R. Waukee, IA
  • "Had an exam yesterday, everyone was very nice. I also had my rowdy 3yr old and they were so patient as he was very curious to what was going on, they had crayons and paper for him. Dr. Katie was who I saw and she explained everything so well I had no problem understanding what she was telling me. I was impressed with how quickly I was able to see her since this was my first visit and check in went quickly. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone looking for a comfortable atmosphere."
