Testimonials

“Dr. DeRose has provided exceptional expertise at a much needed time. He was able to diagnose my condition when my doctor, ER docs, etc. couldn’t. Then he didn’t just stop there. He went out of his way to make sure I was cared for. It’s humbled me how he’s cared for me like a family member of his own. I will forever be indebted to him for helping me at a difficult time. I will always go to him for all my eye care needs and send him many recommendations.”

Rachel K.

“Was my first visit to the Ashland location. Staff was very friendly. Had been with Dr. Nichols until his recent retirement, and was pleased with Dr. Gamble.”

Bonita L.

“I always receive a thorough exam from Vision Health Eyecare and feel that Dr. Don Vanderfeltz is very knowledgeable and a leader in his field. He does a good job at educating me about the condition of my eyes and providing eye care solutions. I entrust my vision to him. His staff also are very helpful and accommodating. The community of California, as well as surrounding areas, are very lucky to have such skilled eye care available to them.”
