StarStarStarStarStar Stevo —    (Patient since 2008)

I have trusted my eyes to Dr. Lucas and Birch Lake Vision for a number of years now. I am 66 and of course my eyes are changing with age. I really appreciate the continuity of care at this clinic and the attention to slowing or preventing future problems with my eyesight.


StarStarStarStarStar First visit —    (Patient since 2019)

All of the staff were very friendly. I got in the same day I called and I was a new patient. I was having some pain and irritation in one of my eyes and wanted to see an ophthalmologist rather than going to urgent care. They were very accommodating.


StarStarStarStarStar First visit. Very impressed. —    (Patient since 2019)

This was my first visit to Birch Lake Eye Clinic. I was greeted promptly and my appointment started on time. Everyone was friendly and professional. Everything was explained to me in detail so I understood the tests and results. The doctor took time to explain all results to me and allowed me to ask any questions. Overall, a real good experience. I will be going back next year. Clean office and equipment. Modern equipment. Knowledgeable staff.

Once again Brian & Birch Lake Eye Clinic have demonstrated exceptional professionalism, flexibility, and commitment to patient needs and did it in record time. I had a couple pieces of foreign material in one of my eyes and they made time for me in Brian's schedule at the last minute. Problem solved! Felt better instantly and have 100% clear vision back again.

StarStarStarStarStar Excellent in every way possible —    (Patient since 2015)

When I anticipate a clinic appointment here I am so pleased to actually look forward to my check-up. It begins with extremely efficient and genuinely friendly front desk personnel. I have health issues that can affect vision and that is of great concern. The testing is done in such a caring way as if they were treating a family member. Dr. Lucas is incredibly knowledgeable and caring, as well. He will take as long as necessary to be sure everything is not only checked thoroughly but explained completely and so that I can understand it. I know I am in wonderful hands with the entire staff. That peace of mind contributes to maintaining good health.

Everything about my appointment at Birch Lake Eye Clinic was excellent. This is an outstanding clinic that mixes very professional service with personal care for patients. The technology utilized is cutting edge. From the team of doctors to the techs to the administrative staff, the team that serves at Birch Lake is stellar. I have returned to see Dr Brian Grudem for eye exams since 1979. He has been terrific! I highly and unreservedly recommend Birch Lake Eye Clinic. Tim Haugen

I took my 6 year old son here for the second time and we had a great experience. The front desk greeted us and even remembered my son! The aides who did the initial eye screening were great with my son and made it fun! The opthamologist is amazing with kids - he took the time to sit and explain everything to my son at his level and did a thorough exam. We will be back !

Good as always. Everyone very friendly and helpful. Sometimes Dr. Lucas moves on while I am still trying to decide with which of the two settings I can see better, but maybe if I am having trouble deciding, it doesn't matter much anyway. Dr. Lucas arrived at the same prescription I had last year, and I still see very well with those glasses, so I am sure he got to the right prescription.

I would not change anything in your office. I've seen Dr. Lucas for many years and I think he's great. I've been to many Drs. checking my eyes and was not pleased with many of them.

super place to take my business! I've been going to Birch Eye Clinic for several years now, and I have always been satisfied with my glasses, and the services provided. The personnel are friendly and knowledgeable, and it's nice to see the same faces year after year. I feel like they know me. I don't know what I'd do without their help in picking my frames. So many to choose from, and I always have compliments when I change frames, so their opinion is good! Thank you for your faithful service!

Very professional staff. Friendly feeling office with nice decor and a warm feeling.


StarStarStarStarStar Great Clinic Overall —    (Patient since 2016)

Great clinic and I will be back. One piece of feedback I have, however, is that I made my selection of an eye clinic based on reviews from several sources - including my insurance company's recommendation. Everyone in the clinic seems rushed, and this was contrary to the reviews I read online. I also asked about sunlight sensitivity and driving and was literally laughed at when I asked about window tint for my vehicles and sunglasses. Dr. Brad never even brought it up. The contact fitting was perfect and the contact recommendation was spot on. I was a big fan of Brad.


StarStarStarStarStar Outstanding —    (Patient since 2009)

Of all the medical providers that I see in a year, Kevin Lucas tops them all. He fully explains each detail and procedure, covers what is likely to occur as I age, and I leave with a better understanding and aid for any issue.

StarStarStarStarStar I love this clinic! —    (Patient since 2011)

Dr Lucas is awesome! He was the first of 5 eye doctors that even ran a test which revealed a correctable deviation that had been causing chronic headaches my whole adult life. One month and a new pair of glasses after my first visit and those headaches have vanished. Great staff he works with, too. And I can't believe how well he keeps a rapport with patients he only sees once a year.


StarStarStarStarStar My experience with the doctor was excellent. Has been every time I was there —    (Patient since 2013)

My experience with the doctor was excellent. Has been every time I was there. Very friendly and makes me feel comfortable that I am in good hands. He is confident and explains everything in an understandable way. Unfortunately my experience after the appointment has never been as good. For what ever reason I have never left the eyeglass portion of the appointment feeling they knew what they were talking about or how to serv ice the customner. Always very slow. Not a lot of advice and just a poor overall experience. This is how I have felt the three times I have had new glasses for the most part. They are always asking each other things that everyone in the position should know I think. I have been given m is information completely once and they actually do not even seem to understand the insurance portion. Maybe it is more difficult than it seems to be but it is never a positive smooth experience form what I have seen. I do not get a welcoming fun feeling for the experien

You really need to fix your appointment scheduling system. For the past two years, I've made my appointment for the next visit when I am there. Your computer reschedules me for a different day/time without a human intervention or anyone calling me to see if that will work. This does not work for me professional or personally. If you cannot keep the time I scheduled, I expect a phone call from a human to have dialog on a new day and time.

I have loved seeing your Drs and having your staff choose my glasses for the 20 years since I've needed glasses. My experience has always been wonderful and I have been telling friends and family. I just wish there would be some sort of discount available. I'm 60 years old, about to retire and get my own insurance so need to buy my glasses now, before your annual sale. Not sure if I'll be able to continue to spend almost $900 on a pair of glasses.
