“Kennedy Vision in Elk River was able to get me in for a last minute exam when I had some eye problems. Everyone there is so friendly and helpful.”
- Douglas Y.
“Dr. Traverse and Dr. Rossow are both consummate professionals in every sense, carefully explaining the details of the exam process and options for treatments. Orrin is as fastidious as you will ever find, great with helpful tips and ensuring that you are completely satisfied. The entire staff at both locations are extremely friendly and helpful. It is very apparent that they put the customer first in all that they do. Thank you all for making the process very simple, each and every time.”
- Jackie B.
“I always have a great experience during my annual eye exam. The staff here is so friendly and makes you feel very welcome. I have been seeing Dr Traverse for many years and although thorough explains things in layman terms. It never feels like he is rushing to get you out the door.”
- Jill P.
“Everyone from scheduling, insurance, eye exam, and the multiple ladies helping me and my husband find glasses were amazing! They were all super helpful and friendly. Highly recommend!”
- Deanna G.
“Very careful, thorough exam by Dr. Kennedy. Support staff is knowledgeable and efficient, friendly.”
- Megan W.
“I made an appointment here because it was in my VSP network and ended up LOVING it. The staff, from when you walk in the door to when you get to the exam room, are friendly, welcoming and kind. Dr. B is great, and I am happy to say I have new glasses & contacts with the RIGHT prescription for the first time in my 15+ years of wearing them! I actually helped one of my patients get an appointment after he broke his glasses on accident and he loved them as well.. Highly recommend!!”
