    We saw Dr Dehning yesterday for our yearly check up. He is a wonderful doctor and his staff is excellent. Ashley helped me at the Independence office. She goes beyond her job to make sure you are comfortable with the tests they are doing. The staff at the front desk is amazing as well. I can't imagine going anywhere but Dr Dehning's office for the care of our eyes.

    Dr Dehning and his staff are friendly, efficient and very thorough in addressing difficult eye issues. They make you feel very comfortable during the exam and when you ask to have instructions repeated, they do so without making you feel awkward. Would highly recommend this opthamologist if you have macular degeneration.

    I'm hearing impaired, and Dr. Denning is so tolerant and patient speaking loudly and clearly and making sure I understand everything before I leave. He's done two surgeries and several checkups for me. Easy to talk to and has a great sense of humor.
