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.)

eyecare customer testimonial

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.
