We are currently seeing patients Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.





 We are excited to have Dr. Trisha Morehouse here on Wednesdays and Fridays helping us see patients. She has agree to help us out at least a day a week for a full year! 

A little bit about her is She is married, has 3 young kids, lives in Brookings now but grew up in Parkston SD. She comes from an Ophthalmology clinic background so she is excited about the technology we have here to earlier detect any eye diseases.

 Give us a call today to set up your annual exam with Dr. Morehouse. We can't wait for our patients to meet her.
