REVIEWS OF Vision Park Family Eye Care IN Iowa

Made an appointment on June 20, 2019 for June 21, 2019. When I called to make the appointment, the lady receptionist asked if I had insurance and I gave her all the details of my Blue Cross Blue Shield Insurance, including policy number. After a while, she confirmed the appointment. So far so good. Next day, which was quite rainy, I drive to this practice for 20 mins during work hours for my appointment. When I get there and give my name, the lady receptionist (heavy-built lady with no smile at all on her face friendly voice) tells me I need to pay out of pocket since my Blue Cross Blue Shield health insurance does not cover eye doctor visits or lenses. When I tell her the fact it's under Eye Med with Blue Cross Blue Schield, she says the practice does not take Eye Med. Result: wasted trip for something that could easily have been told to me over the phone, since they had all my policy insurance when I scheduled the appointment. The lady receptionist did not seem to care much at all and neither apologized or have a friendly smile during the entire conversation. I honestly expected more from a place that claims to care about excellence.

Dr Triebel does a fantastic job managing my vision concerns and glaucoma. To have everything explained in a way I understand is very appreciative. She leaves no stone unturned. I visited with Brett to order my glasses in the near future. He remembered the pair I liked previously, which I appreciated. Kudos to a wonderful optician.

Dr. Muller at Vision Park provides excellent eye care and takes the time to fully explain and answer questions. All of the staff that I've met there have been very professional and friendly.

C. Deanne Rowe

I always feel like I’ve been treated professionally when I leave. Dr Billings is a wonderful doctor.

Brett Wolf

The staff is not only friendly, but thorough. They take the time to get my diagnostics, run the tests, and answer any questions I might have. There was little down time waiting for the staff. They have high quality frames and a quick turn around time to get them back from the lens manufacturer(s). They have made every effort, most successfully, to accommodate their patients. Go here. You'll thank yourself.

This place is amazing! The staff and the doctors are prompt and give thorough care. Dr. Billings was extremely professional and very down to earth. She answered all my questions, gave great follow up, and got my vision on the right track. We had another emergency situation and they were great with adjusting to our needs. Highly recommend!

David J Moore

I have been a patient at Vision Park for many years. Their staff is friendly and professional. I would highly recommend their services.

Christy Williams

My 5 year had his required Kindergarten vision exam today. So much patience and attention was given to him during his exam. Very thorough exam.

Doug Fairchild

It was painless and all of my questions were answered. All good and very professional.

Dana Nelson

Wonderful 1st visit. Wait was minimal in the waiting area, excellent service as once name was called was ushered off and treated quickly and efficiently. The person helping me pick out glasses did a superb job and was very patient and even took pictures of me with her cell phone so I could see what I looked like better with my own glasses on (versus trying to see with a magnifying mirror). Everyone was nice and friendly and made you feel welcomed.

Tad Andersen

Dr. Muller is the best! She takes the time to explain everything, listens and welcomes feedback to find the best options for you. Her assistant Kyle’s attention to detail is checklist perfect. Everyone deserves this exceptional level of care and attention.

AJ Hernandez

This was my first visit. The staff was friendly, kind and professional. Everyone was knowledgeable and did not shy away from any questions I had. I was at ease from the exam to the selection of my glasses. Good selection of eyewear, comfortable wait area. Great experience.

Kim Boughton

Melissa is the BEST! Her attention to detail and concern for her patients is above anyone I have ever worked with.

charlette hradek

I always recommend Vision Park to my family and friends.!

Bailey Woodruff

After 2 years of wearing the wrong prescription from a previous eye doctor, I decided I should go to a new eye doctor because I knew my prescription wasn't right but things weren't changing. Dr. Larson made sure I got the right prescription and after about two months it still amazes me how much better my vision is! Thank you for allowing me to see again!

Nicole Shabino

SUCH amazing work with my 22 month old! I wasn’t sure how they would test eyes at that age, but they did an exceptional job! Can’t say enough good things!

Jim Wright

Judy Prevette

Jerry Getman

I had a sudden vision change & called Vision Park @ 3:30p They worked me into the schedule @ 545p. The staff were all very professional, friendly & thorough. Dr. Triebel is the best !

Terry Smith

Greg Stieber

I have been going to Dr. Shepherd for a few years and have found her and office staff great. Scheduling is easy, the appointments are quick and they never seem to recommend unnecessary items like new glasses with a slight prescription change. I certainly recommend Dr. Shepherd to friends and family.

Lori Holtzman

Kyle and Dr. Muller were excellent; however, the front desk employees were very unpleasant. As I was checking in, it seemed like Kelli did not want to be there. She did not greet me and when I said I had new insurance, she made it seem like an inconvenience. When it came time to check out, Kelli informed me that I did not have vision coverage. I said I thought I was sure I did and would have to call my husband for the group number. She then said, "Well I already called them and you don't." Every interaction with her seemed to bother her and she did not smile once. Chris was the one who actually checked me out and as I was on the phone with my husband to get the group number for my vision coverage, she sighed and puffed heavily and rolled her eyes! I was very surprised by how these two have been acting, so I asked if something was wrong because they had treated me like I was a huge inconvenience to them. I hope something changes soon because these two have very poor customer service, which is a shame because the techs and doctors are very friendly and great.

Karen Goldsworth

Vision Park Family Eye Care have been the providers for my family for many years. Their staff is courteous, friendly and go out of their way to make your visit with them stand out in the healthcare industry! My son was having difficulty at school and Dr. Billings diagnosed that he needed vision therapy! I had never even heard of it but after a couple months my son was seeing 20/20 again and able to focus on what he was having difficulty with. What a blessing!

Karen McCarthy

Very accommodating for appointment times, very pleasant people to work with, very professional. I always feel I get good care.

Scott k

Great service and friendly staff.

Brooksany Jobes

The doctor was very knowledgeable, but everyone there appeared to hate their job. Only one person smiled the entire time I was there. It was kind of offputting.

Dale Howard

Fast appointment! Great job on checking all aspects of my eyes and vision!

Carol Ripperger

Very thorough exam Friendly staff. Knowledgeable and informative about testing being done. Very helpful in picking out frames

Brenda Pedigo Weigel

Dr Larson was excellent. I have recently struggled with close vision while wearing contacts. I prefer contacts but had been wearing my backup glasses for a couple of years because it was difficult to do paperwork. Dr Larson kindly, and professionally, found an excel solution in the form. Of multi prescription contacts. I am so pleased to be able to see both distance and close with my new contacts! Dr Larson then went over images of my eye, explaining the health of both my eyes, and general health. No one has ever given such a thorough eye exam and explained the health side of it.

Shirley Schmidt

I am always treated very well. Dr. Billings is a caring and professional person. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a good place to go.

Sue Wiley

Nicholas Watson

Jacob Rosenstengle

Juli' Verrant

The best experience in eye care! Everyone is so friendly, caring and always professional. I’ve been a patient for many years and know that I’m in great hands!

Bernie George

Doctor Triebel is always wonderful. Front desk staff are a bit brusk and unfriendly. Doctors assistants are warm and welcoming. Doctors are very patient and easy to talk to.

Jason VanDePol

Friendly and knowledgeable. I haven't had my eyes examined in over 20 years and they made my visit very pleasant. I will definitely be back. I strongly recommend!

Hollie Welch

Took the time needed to help me find answers. Didn't just roll me in and out and ask which is better 1, or 2?

Brad Snyder

Patricia Hoyt

Pleasant, thorough & efficient. Definitely recommend Dr Wendy Muller!

Darby Elliott

Vision Park is a trusted member of my team of health professionals.


Doctor Shepard is the best! She is personable, caring and patient. I trust her work and her opinions. Chris at the front desk is, too. Highly recommend them.

Diane Grotenhuis

Dr T Shepherd is very personable, thorough and listens to concerns as well as encourages ‘call me back’ if something doesn’t seem right.

Stephanie Gibson

Had my first exam here and was in search of new glasses afterwards. From the moment I walked in, I was greeted with rude, unprofessional people. I thought maybe the lady was having a bad day, and wouldn’t base my assessment of the place on her alone, but every single person I interacted with was incredibly rude. I interacted with 5 people in total. The two exceptions were the doctor himself, who was thorough and kind, and the receptionist who checked me out when I was done. I was appalled at the lack of sincerity and courteousness. Not to mention, the lack of variety of frames for women. There were two areas and most of the shape and size of the frames were the same and I didn’t find what I was hoping to. I rarely write reviews, mostly when things were amazing or beyond horrible. This experience, unfortunately, was horrible and the last time I will set foot in that office. It’s a recommended provider in my network, but I will go elsewhere from now on.

Karen Labenz

Professional and friendly. Highly recommend!

Nellie Gerety

My family and I have had great experiences at Vision Park. All the staff were patient, friendly, and took their time answering our questions. My husband and I both learned a lot in our appointments and will recommend them to other families!

Sabrina S

Every person I came into contact with was so very nice to me. The office was very nice and clean. The lady that took me back for my pretest was very sweet. Made me feel very comfortable. The Dr came in and spent a good deal of time with me. He answered all my questions and I felt like he really cared about what was in my best interest. Then the nice man that helped me pick out my frames and went through my insurance with me was very awesome. Great place!!!!

Tony Farrell

Excellent service and professionalism. Melissa and the team is great at customer service and identifying potential problematic eye issues.

Tricia Russell

Janis Sheehan

Chloe Summy

Dusty Creech

The entire experience was exceptionally positive. From the front staff, to my eye exam with Dr. Shepherd, to purchasing glasses with the assistance of glasses specialist Bret, every step of the way was great. You will be pleased with Vision Park and the staff! Highly recommended!

Dayna Lund

I went in today and the staff was really nice. My appointment was at 12:15 (I scheduled it on my lunch) and people went ahead of me. I went up to the desk and said “my appointment is at 12:15 right?” and the receptionist said yeah and she apologized saying that they had me down for the wrong time. I was a half hour late back to work because of the delay for my appointment. I ended up going back with one of the doctors 20 minutes after my appointment time and he didn’t really help or give me answers that I needed. He gave me eye drops and told me if my eye didn’t clear up within a week to call them back and schedule another appointment. I had symptoms of blurriness in my right eye that he didn’t even talk about or discuss with me on what was causing that. My appointment (just a red eye check up) was $114. He didn’t give me a lot of information and basically just guessed what was wrong. I had a good experience the first time I came around a year ago for an eye exam and was not expecting such bad service this time.

Sarah B

Racist unprofessional rude service people here. GO elsewhere.

Samantha Harms-Kedley

Cindy Kail

Friendly, efficient staff. Dr Muller is kind and does a great job of teaching and sharing results. Staff assisted well to pick out frames and lens options. Reception staff explained things well.

Cynthia Hemingway

I was on time for my appointment, and had essentially no wait before I was taken to have my eye health checked. Then to the doctor's office for vision testing. Dr Triebel came in shortly after the assistant left. She asked thorough questions, and was very careful in her tests. Eye doctors have the coolest tools! They adjusted my current glasses and they fit so much better now. I highly recommend Vision Park.

Terry Evans

Very friendly staff. The Doctor's take the time to listen to your concerns and answer any questions you may have.

Tom McClure

Got me right in 2 hrs after I called. Great service.

Steven Hymowitz

Customer service was not the best and was extremely rude ignored and was unhelpful to my wife because of her color. I needed glasses for work quickly otherwise would not go here.

Karen Johnson

Lisa Hanrahan

I've been very satisfied with the Vision Park Family Eye Care. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Doctor Billings is amazing and has been the only doctor to point out something regarding one of my eyes. Michelle Reeves is outgoing is a good member of the Urbandale Chamber of Commerce. I highly recommend taking yourself and your family to them. I got in bind with switching jobs and Michelle ordered me sample contacts to get me buy until my new health insurance kicks in. I so appreciate it.

Lynsy Harrigan

Susan Holdgrafer

Rachel Tegeler

Always receive great care and customer service here. Dr. Triebl is great she has worked over the years trying to find something for me that will help my extreme chronic dry eyes.

Ron Nurmi

front office was fast & efficient, the eye exam went well with and Dr. Muller explained what was happening and things to be aware of in the future. She also checked my past history to make there were no problems at this time. The technician who aided my selections of new frames was very helpful. I am a very long time patient of this practice and it is only getting better. I am very satisfied
