I have been a patient of Dr. Wilken for 4 years now and am very pleased with their service and attention to detail. The Team is very polite and knowledgeable and take their time to answer any questions. Dr. Wilken is very informative during the exam by how he explains all of the tests and what he is looking for while reviewing my chart. I really appreciate that he takes the time to do that because I learn so much from him. I highly recommend Dr. Wilken and his team.
Very happy and please with my visit. Dr Stephanie went over and above to help me get the lowest price for my prescription. Very thankful for her help. Dr Stephanie and Dr Bret are wonderful.
Loved how Dr Vickers made the appointment easy and stress free very personable and professional. Selecting the glasses was easy and great with no pressure. They provided just the right amount of direction and then stepped back to let us look at our pace.
Extremely polite and efficient staff. Dr. Wilken is extremely knowledgeable and very patient friendly. Shared in both medical and layman’s terms so that I was fully aware of all that was going on with my vision.
Dr. Wilken is fantastic and explains everything well. The gentleman that helped with my glasses knew what he was talking about and helped me use my benefits to my advantage. I've always felt that eye places try to take advantage of patients but it felt nothing like that here. They made sure I understood my benefits and how to use them.
I have recently purchased both glasses and contacts from Wilken Family Eye Care and have been very pleased with their service. I had been to several other eye care providers in town over the last few years and had difficulty in obtaining a pair of contact lenses which gave me the right prescription for both near and far vision. At Wilken Family Eye Care, the doctors worked with me in trying several different contact lenses until we finally found a pair that met my needs. The glasses that I purchased also offer great vision, are very stylish, and I have had many compliments on them. Everyone I worked with at Wilken Family Eye Care was extremely professional, friendly and helpful. I would recommend them to anyone--especially those that might have a "difficult-to-fit" prescription such as mine.
It has been so great for our 10 year old not to worry about glasses anymore. He was taking them off at recess so he wouldn’t break them and didn’t wear them during sports which impaired his playing. With the Ortho K it has been great – he doesn’t have to worry anymore about not seeing things or being called “four eyes”. The staff and doctor’s were so great about explaining what we could accomplish with Ortho K that we couldn’t wait to start. They talked to us both about the wearing, care and cleaning of the contacts and with each visit explained what was happening. It is well worth the investment in every way! Thank you!
