Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I recently visited for the first time. The staff bent over backward to accommodate my last minute scheduling. The doctor was thorough and took the time to answer my questions. The eyeglass staff went way above just offering options and fitting them to me. The overall experience was as good as it gets."
    R.B. BLUE SPRINGS, MO
  • "My wife received contacts and glasses and I received glasses. Our vision is complicated in many respects yet Advanced Eyecare handled them in a great manner. Dr. Reed was probably the best we have had as he dealt with our problems and explained what we going on. The staff was extremely helpful in all areas including insurance, payments, fitting of the glasses, and follow-ups. The amount of knowledge is very complete and in the highest traditions of professionalism yet a very warm personal touch."
    J.W. OVERLAND PARK, KS
  • "When the Missouri state statute was passed mandating vision exams for students, I started calling eye groups for help to ensure my students received the best eye screening possible. Advanced Eyecare stepped up and immediately offered to help screen my school. Cody met with me on several occasions before my first screening. They came three times to screen and rescreen first and third grades. Cody also set up screenings for any student whom the teacher requested a vision check. I am very pleased with our partnership with Advanced Eyecare."
