Dr. Terpstra was extremely rude to me when I went to her for the results of my eye tests. She stalked out of the room after trowing my records on the counter in the room. I would never recommend her and I will not be going back to my regular eye doctor with the group because of her terrible behavior.
We apologize for your experience, Thank you for your feedback.

We are happy we found Dr. Terpstra. She and her staff were very professional, competent, and friendly. Both visits were a complete success and she was able to improve our eyesight right away. We would both highly recommend Dr. Terpstra and her staff.
