Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Kruger and his staff are professional, efficient and personable. I have had surgery and regular eye checkups. I would highly recommend this physician and office.
Very thorough and professional
Excellent doctor and staff.
I had a great experience, which is odd considering that I was recieving an eye exam.
Great. He is Knowledgeable, took time to explain findings and to answer questions, and he has a good bedside manner.
Everyone in the office was great.
Everyone on the staff was cheerful, professional, and gracious. Loved Dr. Kruger's easy manner and considerate approach. A very positive experience all around!
Excellent. Direct, efficient and thorough.
Very great first visit! Dr. Kruger was professional and very helpful in explaining everything to me. I will definitely be returning
Dr Kruger and his assistant gave me a thorough eye exam, were very patient, and gave me a good explanation of the status of my cataracts
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!
It was great and super professional!
My eyes were dilated but they didn't give me any protective eyewear afterwards. wish I would have been informed my eyes would be dilated prior to making my appointment to properly schedule my day.
Great experience. Fast but efficient. Everyone super friendly.
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.
The appointment was extremely thorough! I feel like my eyesight is now in good hands!
He is working with an excellent practice and fits in very well.
Office personnel very friendly and dr. Kruger was great. Listened to me and was a big help to me and my problem. Very caring and informative.
It was great! Very quick and efficient. Thanks!
Well qualified kind professional
My visit was great. We received very helpful information that we never knew before regarding bifocals. If it wasn't for this doctor, we would have kept getting ripped off by other vision companies. I would recommend this doctor to others.
Was fine I just wished he would have discussed my eye issue a little more.
Helpful. Seemed like he was in a hurry, which didn't bother me. I was in and out very quickly. I showed up a few minutes late (sorry!) and they were very gracious. I would be happy to work with him again.
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.
The office staff was friendly and answered any insurance questions I had. Dr. Kruger was fantastic - answered all questions that I had - his mannerism were very professional and a very nice man.
I would highly recommend this office. Dr. Kruger was excellent. They took me in and checked me in very in depth I was welcomed!! I had actually found them here a few months ago and recommended them without really knowing but based on other's reviews. Then I was able to go today. Great place, easy to park and Great people. Thanks, Tina
Very friendly and polite. Matthew Kruger cared about the well-being of my eyes regarding their past history.
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.

I was a new patient coming in to see Dr. Kruger for contacts. Not only was he very thorough with my exam, he made sure that I left with no questions unanswered.
