What Our Patients Are Saying...

The nurses were absolutely wonderful, helped me pick out a pair of frames that worked for me, have never worn glasses and now I rock them thanks to them, Doctor also very humorous and wasn’t too rough on me for wearing contacts for six months without taking them or 😀

- Eric B. Fayetteville, AK

Everything about my visit was wonderful, I was truly impressed by how kind and courteous the staff was, no rushing, all smiling… best doctor’s appointment I’ve ever been to!

- Judy J. Springdale, AK

I have been seeing Dr. Drew since the mid-nineties and have never had a bad experience.

- Rhonda R. Johnson City, AK

Dr. Schwichtenberg and his staff are very professional, knowledgeable, and personable. I’ve only seen Dr. Schwichtenberg for routine eye exams but he is filled with expertise and solid advice. There is never a long wait time once you check in and are seen. Fridays seem to be their busiest day. Their process is seamless and they all work very well together.

- Connie H. Johnson City, AK

I appreciate the on-line survey as a means to offer my experience with I Care. I have been going to I Care for several years now. The Doctors and staff have been great in meeting my eye care needs. In 2004 I was experiencing difficulties with eye strain – specifically the eye muscles. The final diagnosis was that I needed to add prism to my eye prescription. It took a while to get used to it, but I am very glad the issue was taken care of. I thank Dr. Schwichtenberg for discovering the problem. The last couple of eye exam visits I have been seeing Dr. Hejny. She has been great and thorough with my eye exam and gave excellent recommendations. Both Drs. Schwichtenburg and Hejny are very thorough and spends the time for explanations and questions. I appreciate that very much. The front office staff has been great with insurance and eye glass frame fitting.

- Stephen P. Shady Grove, AK

Excellent care, I drive 1 hr. and 15 minutes, and pass many other vision clinics on the way so that your providers can care for my eyes.

Care could not be better!

- Jonathan B. Johnson City, AK

These folks are the best!!!!!Ever since obtaining my first pair of eyeglasses 23 years ago, just the thought of enduring another almost annual ordeal of exams and new glasses was most unpleasant. Thank you ICare for ending that unpleasant experience! Thank you for helping me see better than I have in decades…never been this excited for a new pair of glasses…and I can see without contorting my head and neck! Your superb eyeglasses AND the exemplary product/service provided by Dr. S and all the staff are a blessing! The entire experience far exceeded any expectations I had. The young lady who assisted me through the most of the process (intake, selecting, fitting, paying, correspondence involved, and pick up) was superb as displayed by her demeanor of genuine care for me as a patient/customer, with kindness and patience. She is very bright and knowledgeable and took the time to thoroughly explain. It appeared that she had a team-first attitude as evidenced by the willingness to admit when she wasn’t sure of an answer and then being humble enough to ask a co-worker.Actually, every person I encountered on phone calls and both office visits were friendly, helpful, competent, and professional. Everyone’s sense of humor was appreciated as well…it made the experience even better! A grateful and satisfied patient.

- B.B. Johnson City, AK

I’d recommend Dr. Schwichtenberg to anyone. My wife and I just started going to him at some point earlier this year. He helped educate me about Lasik and we have seen him a lot now due to having several follow ups after Lasik surgery. I’ll definitely be going to him for as long as we are in the Tri-Cities.

- Heath N. Springdale, AK

I went to I-Care to have my contacts exam after 2 years of not having one. The service I received was excellent, everyone was very friendly & professional, they let me choose what products I wanted. They were also very helpful with making sure that my insurance was done correctly.

- A Happy Patient Fayetteville, AK

Super friendly, very informative! Very happy with my decision to see the doctors at I Care Vision Associates!

- Jessica H. Johnson City, AK

My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Schwichtenberg’s for 13-14 years now. He and his staff are very knowledgable, helpful, and professional. I HIGHLY recommend this practice…The Dr. answers all my questions and explains all the factors that are going into his recommendations for my care. We’re very happy with the treatment and service we get at I Care Vision Associates.
