Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Thanks to Kristi, Tia, Kay, Tonya, Kerry, and Dr. Jeff Sanger for the
    professional but personal service I received during my recent visits. Having
    been in "retail" for over 30 years, I know what it's like (Thanks Kerry for your patience.)"
    Rick Maas
  • "The customer service at Prairie Eyecare is unbeatable. I am most impressed with the promptness in which the Doctor sees me. When I walk in the door I am greeted by the receptionist and almost immediately taken back to begin my exam. If they are running behind due to a walk in emergency, they call me. My time is valuable so not having to wait for long periods of time is important to me and my family."
