  1. Dear Dr. Staman and Staff, I just want to Thank You All for trying so hard to help me with my bad right eye. It is rare in life, to find such a good group of employees that try so hard to help you feel better. I won't remember all your names, but your kindness on some really bad days will forever be a good memory for me. God Bless.

  2. I have hearing aids and was in an electric wheelchair. The staff was very accommodating. Everything was immaculate. A pleasant experience.

  3. Dr. Staman was very knowledgeable with my condition. He answered all my questions in layman’s terms, which I understood very clearly.

  4. We were impressed with the flow and the wait times were impressive. I loved Dr.Staman’s good bye, 'have a blessed day'!

  5. Thank you for all your concerns, respect, and love.

  6. Lucky me for having a family physician who knew Dr. Staman and I was able to exit your front door as a happy satisfied patient. And thank you to all your employees for their smiling faces. They mean a lot to so many.

  7. Enjoy coming. Dr. James Staman is a great doctor. I would tell anyone to come here. I love him. It’s not about money it’s about care for his patients.
