optometry billing


Lynne is in charge of accounts payable. She pays the bills.  Lynne is Dr. Steensma's wife of 45 years.

      - Mickey is her assistant.

If you get an incorrect billing it's usually Mickey's fault so bring the error to the attention of anyone in the office and it will be fixed.



Dr. Don Steensma.  This is my practice, and I hope that you will allow us to provide your eyecare.
