14/11/13 4 5 5 5 I was actually referred to Dr. Keep by my ophthalmologist. I figured it would be appropriate to write a review after seeing her for a second time. Both visits she was excellent. Pleasant, punctual and patient. The exam was far more thorough than what I've experienced in the past. I wasn't rushed out the door; she took time to explain my condition, and answer all my questions.  Respond

05/08/13 4 4 4 4 I found Dr Van Der Putten to be very friendly and knowledgable. My concern is with her experience level and the glass prescription she prescribed. She gave me an Rx that was more than twice as strong as I needed for a distance Rx. She over minused me considerably. Being a new presbyope, in need of first bifocals, she was not able to relax my accommodation and because of this over prescribed both the distance and subsequently near,reading power. When I presented my very first glass prescription to an optician they were amazed that I didn't need glasses to drive and were also amazed that I never needed any sort of glasses up until this point. I was recommended to see another optometrist for a sevond opinion, which I did and was prescribed an appropriate and much more realistic prescription, given my vision and symptoms. Dr Van Der Putten is a good optometrist and I am aware that new presbyopes are sometimes difficult to prescribe for.  See Responses

10/09/12 5 5 5 5 I found Dr. Van Der Putten to be very friendly and thorough. She answered any questions I had, she putme at ease right away, and I didn't feel like I was being rushed ( like an assembly line patient ). The whole staff were just great.I actually got my dates mixed up and went in a week early --- they still fit me in right away. My appointments were also immediate -- no more than 5 - 10 min. wait time. I have been to many optometrists in my life, and found her to be exceptional. I would recommend her very highly.  Respond
