Just went in for an annual eye exam scheduled at 8 AM, was seen around 8:08. Staff and doctors were friendly and helpful, and I was out by 8:24.

Exceptional. He explained the standard of care I should expect yearly at my checkups due to a medication I take (one test had never been done at another Dr.’s office) and explained why/ the consequences to my eyes/if it isn’t done. He actually read before my appointment my background and specific issues I hoped to address in our appointment here on ZocDoc! Considerate and time- saving; I felt respected that he prepared thoroughly. Dr. Kruger thinks fast, asks questions, and is a “patient’s” doctor. If there’s any way to help, he is the type of doctor that wants to do so and will-or he’ll get you to the specialist that can. I left his office feeling confident I had the best possible/medically solid findings due to his experience, and the technology he used in my case to get a specific type of scan. It definitely helped that Dr. Kruger and Isobel who assisted were wonderful during the eye exam process- I’ll be back next year without question! Thanks!

Dr. Matthew Kruger and his team at Associates in Eyecare in Denver are fantastic.!! I am so glad that I went to them for my eye surgeries. In January 2016, I had a cataract removed from my left eye and also had an intraocular lens implanted. I was extremely pleased with the care and so amazed by the results that I had the same procedure on my right eye the following month. Dr. Kruger clearly and carefully explained the examination, the results, and the recommendations. He will answer all of your questions. His office also works very well with your insurance, whether it be Medicare or another insurance. The results were beyond my expectations...and this was after having worn glasses for 56 years. Again, I highly recommend Dr. Matthew Kruger and his team at Associates in Eyecare. Five stars and wish I could give more!!. Karen H.

The technicians were all very nice, professional and patient. Dr. Kruger is an early career doc who would benefit from slowing down a touch- he was very knowledgeable, but seemed to be in a hurry and did not explain as well as he could have what all was happening, what the results were, if/how my sight had changed. A little more experience and spending more time with his patients would go a long way!

This was my first visit here and the front desk girl was fantastic as was the woman that did my exam. Dr. Kruger was very good but kept popping out of my exam to talk to another client. Please finish with one and then pay attention to the one that you are examining. I wanted a young Dr. so I think that he just has a lot of energy. He might mellow a little with age. I will be back as over all it was a good experience. Oh and travel size solution would have been a nice touch, I always got that and eye drop samples at my last place.

Dr. Kruger was very thorough and I didn't feel like he was rushing the appointment at all, very knowledgeable and friendly. Staff were very friendly as well. My eyes were dilated for eye exam this morning and my vision been really blurry all day and its giving me headache from not being able to see very well. Hopefully my vision will be back to normal soon.
