 Doctors and office staff are very helpful and friendly !!

It's great that you are still in practice.

Great service ....... again.

Thank you for years of wonderful service!

Everything was great!

Always the best service and friendly and helpful service. Dr. Steensma is the most caring and professional doctor of them all. He's what I wish all doctors would be.

Great staff

Walking into a harmonious business is a rarity. This is not the case with this of office. I always leave welcomed by all. Nice staff!

Overall was a very pleasant experience. The staff are truly what makes this office a cut above the rest. I recently relocated to Oxnard and was told by neighbors/friends only to see Dr. Steensma. Though I didn't get to meet with Dr. Steensma, I was examined by Dr. Ross, seemingly and equally professional. Although I may have not asked enough questions during the exam, by the end of the visit after working with staff, I understood more. Crystal was extremely thorough and very good at her job -- especially as the designer eyewear consultant! I will be returning to this office for my future vision needs.

Keep up the great work. Dr Steensma and all of his staff provide excellent service. I will return for all my eyecare needs in the future!

Thank you

Keep up the good work!

Biggest thing I remember is I showed up there once with a hurting eye. You made the pain go away. I'll never forget that...

Monica was super customer friendly!


Keep up the great work!

You're the Best!

I highly recommend you and your office staff to everyone and appreciate the fact that I know my wife and I are getting the best in the business each time we visit.

Dear Dr. Steensma and Staff, As always you and your staff were outstanding. Thank You, Shirley

As a new resident to the area, I found Dr. Steensma and staff to be very friendly and caring throughoout the entire visit. They acknowledged me as a person with a name and not just a new client account number. Dr. Steensma was very thorough and to the point with my review and made sure I really understood my results of the examination. He informed me of things to come, but did not insist or make me feel that I had to come back right away or all was doomed in the short term. Thanx Dr. Steensma and staff for being consumer concious with real people!

Keep up the good work! You are tops!!!!

It is always a pleasure to have my eyes examined by Dr. Steensma. He is thorough, professional, and utilizes all the latest technology in helping my eyes be the best they can be for my benefit. He is trusted, friendly, and a very caring and knowledgeable professional,

I've been seeing Dr. Steensma for about 12 years, and I've always walked out feeling totally satisfied with how I was treated and how the service was.

All of you are great to talk with and your knowledge of what you are doing is very helpful. Thank you for being friendly and professional.

Thank you for your caring. I am still quite aware of the floaters, but am no longer fearful of what is going to happen. I am informed and very grateful for the time you spent explaining my condition to me - loved the handout on vitreous detachment. I have an appointment with my regular ophthalmologist next Monday, the 28th. It is my yearly exam and I am confident that he will concur with your diagnosis. Once again, thank you for always being there and responding so promptly

es mejor clinica que eh visitado ...

I am really grateful for all the help you provided for my Mom. Really it was like a blessing in disguise from God almighty that we visited with you yesterday . We were able to take her to the retinal consultants today and they did inject Lucentis in her eye to stop the bleeding without which God knows what would have happened. I know now that its people like you that God has sent on this earth as Angels for mankind.  I do not have words to thank you for your courtesy & help!  God Bless You

Keep up the excellent service. I was very satisfied with everything. Will always come back. Thank you very much

Don has been my Optometrist for many years. He gives a very thorough eye exam while explaining everything. Don always gives the pros and cons with any recommendation for eye treatment, even glasses verses contacts and other options. There is never any pressure to buy eye wear products from his office, and there is a beautiful array of frames to choose from.

Don's office staff are very friendly, helpful, and well trained by Don. I always feel like family when walking into his office. It's a happy feeling.

I have recommended Don's services to many people over the years and will continue to do so.less

Not only are Dr Don and his staff expert at their jobs, they're great people to be around. We know we are getting the best care for our eyes and recommend Dr Don with compete confidence.
