My eye care clinic in Iowa was able to work with DeForrest Eye Center to get my son some contacts since he left his at home on our trip to Disney. The staff was super friendly and took care of us like family. I appreciated everything they did for us. Thank you and I highly recommend their super friendly staff!!
Team DeForrest is the best! I have been a client for over 15 years and my kids are clients too. They always make us feel welcome, thoroughly talk you through each step and break down your insurance benefit questions. They make you feel like family! I trust Dr. D and her Team wholeheartedly!
