What Our Patients Say
- Peggy O'Neill
This office is THE BEST. They are so thorough in their exams and I feel very cared for. They say all the good and the not-so-good stuff with eloquence and professionalism. And they allow me to ask all the questions I need to in order to get really clear on what my next steps are. I trust that they have my best interest at heart.

First time visit to this office. Newly remodeled and the decoration was done very well. Lots of attention paid to details. First contact with office via phone call was great. The staff answered promptly….no message of “we’re busy right now and will call you back if you leave a number.” She was very knowledgeable and answered all questions to my satisfaction. Reminder texts for upcoming appointments received. Walked through the door to be pleasantly greeted and knew who we were. Called me ma’am, which made me feel old, but it meant she had old school manners, so I let her know she was welcome to use my first name. Our exam was done efficiently using what appeared to be “state of the art” equipment and by friendly, knowledgeable staff. The doctor himself was extremely knowledgeable and took the time to explain what had been done by his support staff and what he himself did. Again all questions answered to my satisfaction, even the silly ones. Finished by shopping for new glasses and they spent a LOT of time patiently showing me many options. At no time did I feel pressured to purchase any additional treatment or accessories. Granted we are on the downhill side of Covid, so the waiting room was quiet, but certainly did not feel like we were just “one of the herd”. Left the office with a follow up appointment and having paid my bill…all done in an efficient manner. After getting in the car I sat for a minute and thought that was the most pleasant medical appointment I’ve ever had. I would certainly recommend Dr. Jeske and his staff.

Dr.Finch was amazing! My exam was very thorough, and all the technicians were kind and helpful. I am always anxious about the health of my eyes and Dr. Finch gave me explanations that were detailed but very easy to understand. I felt so much better after my exam. The expertise, the wonderful explanations and the genuine warmth I felt in this office would make my highly recommend them.

First time in today. They were very careful to socially distance, hand sanitize, and everyone was wearing masks correctly the entire time. Dr. Finch and the staff are delightful. I feel happy that this will be my new eye clinic.

- Alanna Young
The staff and doctor were very well informed and forthcoming with information. It was very comforting that I could walk in after not having seen an optometrist in several years and they could explain what they recommended, what was important now, and what I could put off for a bit. They were very transparent and I really appreciate that in medical offices of any kind.

I had a great experience at this clinic. The staff were friendly and the office was very clean and sleek. Dr. Jeske spent a lot of time talking through my symptoms so that i understood what some of the underlying causes of my dry eye were. I feel like I left armed with a ton of great information and a game plan for treatment. Highly recommend!

Dr. Finch took his time answering all of my questions and was very reassuring. The office was clean and sanitized and all staff were following Covid protocol. Taking the time to explain the tests and results, very thoroughly, is extremely important to me and I was extremely satisfied.
