My wife and I want to thank you for the extreme care, professionalism and kindness you and the entire staff at Eye Clinic of Wisconsin showed us on our July 13 visit with you. We are amazed and grateful for how quickly and expertly you responded to my diabetic retinopathy issue, provided Avastin injections, and improved my vision. We can’t say enough good things about Dr. Aschbrenner, Dr. Michalski, as well as the terrific technicians and patient care staff, especially David. We quickly discovered we were in the best hands possible. You and your staff at the Eye Clinic of Wisconsin are first-rate. Thank you!

Dr. Aschbrenner is my "miracle worker." With only vision in my right eye and that being very poor at my first visit, the good Dr did a thorough exam, listened to my history, made suggestions, and answered my questions. After that first surgery I cried because I could once again see fairly clearly. (I had been under the care of the "best Retinal Specialist" in a neighboring State prior to moving to WI.) Even my family was impressed at how clear my vision was after Dr Aschbrenner performed the surgery. I trust Dr Aschbrenner completely. Thank you!!

Beth Striegel – Feb 14, 2020
My daughter has been having issues seeing the board in class and was nervous about the idea of getting glasses. She was able to set up an appointment with Dr. Aschbrenner and he immediately put her at ease. He was very thorough with his examination and treated my daughter with complete care and respect, as did his entire staff. He answered all of her questions and asked appropriate questions back to make sure he understood exactly the way she was feeling and the concerns she had with her vision. By the end of her visit, she was smiling and laughing and is now thrilled to know that she will be getting glasses and will be able to see more clearly not only in school, but also in her everyday activities. I highly, highly recommend Dr. Aschbrenner and the Eye Clinic of Wisconsin. He is the best!

I have been a patient of Dr. Aschbrenner for over three years and have had surgery performed by him. I have had retinal services performed by others and none can compare to Dr. Aschbrenner. He is down to earth and sincerely cares about his patients. His chair side manner is top notch!
