I have been very impressed with Vance Thompson Vision. We were greeted with a very friendly person as my wife and I walked in. (This kindness continued during our entire visit.). I was also very impressed with all the advanced technology that Vance Thompson has and used during my assessment. They were very careful and precise in all testing that was done. If anyone questioned me about Vance Thompson Vision, I would quickly advise too go to the best. No one else compares. And since I have poor eyesight all my life I have been to numerous vision clinics. Thanks to all Vance Thompson and crew, and special Thanks to Jake, Tiffany and Dr. Nick for going above and beyond. Sincerely. Ken Haugen.

I am very impressed with my entire experience with Vans Thompson. The pre-op check, the surgery itself and the multiple follow up visits/phone calls have been professional and caring. Very impressed!!

July 21, 2021

I was fortunate to be referred to Dr. Greenwood at VTV in Fargo ! The medical team was astounding. From the moment I walked in the office, the staff that greeted me, to everyone in the department, I felt I was the most important person in the office. I expect nothing but professionalism, and watched ever event that was completed, and totally impressed. Dr.Greenwood, Dr.Messer, and Dr. Risbrudt are team players. I had the LAL (light adjusted lens), and would recommend this to others, if it is an option for your situation. Thank you Fargo team !! YOU ARE AMAZING !

January 3, 2021

January 15, 2020

Often when a patient is referred by one doctor to another there is always a level of apprehension. In our case the transfer over to the care team at Vance Thompson Vision was an event that changed my wifes life. Every step from day one to the ending followup care has been flawless. The family of people at this office work seamlessly to make each phase of vision repair a positive experience. She had 2 cataract proceedures and corneal transplants which resulted in corrected vision beyond our expectations. The attention to all aspects carried out by the exceptional clinic staff, operating staff, medication/pharmacy coordinator Naomi have reaffirmed the phrase "Hire exceptional people-train and allow them to do their best". Thanks!!!

January 14, 2020

I am happy to share that my experience from the get-go was fantastic. The staff were extremely friendly and fun and courteous. Dr. Greenwood was great. I had my second cataract removed on my birthday and they went out of their way to make it special, including some flowers and a Happy Birthday song from my doc. The word is out - I shared with everyone I talked with after surgery.

The team at VTV is exceptional in their practice. They have top-notch providers, bar none. The medical team’s willingness to listen and provide thoughtful care is outstanding. This is difficult to achieve over the seven visits I had from pre-surgical examination to the last appointment to “lock in” the light adjustable lens I had received, but they are achievers who go above and beyond expectations. Thanks to all for the gift of the best vision of my adult life!

December 29, 2019

In December of 2018 I had cataract surgery on my right eye where Dr. Greenwood inserted a prescription lens for near sightedness. This was a success as I now have nearly 20-20 vision in that eye. In November of 2019 I had cataract surgery on my left eye where Dr. Greenwood inserted a light adjustable lens for far sightedness. Once again this was a success as I can read without glasses. Although it was annoying to constantly wear UV protective glasses for 6 weeks until the light adjustments were completed, it was worth it. For the first time in over 60 years I do not have to wear glasses or contacts. Everyone at Vance Thompson Vision was very professional, friendly and more than willing to answer any questions. I would definitely recommend Dr. Greenwood and his staff for any vision problems.

December 20, 2019

My experience here was great, everyone was very professional and friendly. A nice atmosphere and nice people. I would recommend Vance Thompson to everyone needing eye care.

In error, I showed up a day early, but since I traveled with a driver the staff got me through with all my tests. Everybody was very kind and helpful...they treat you very well.

November 15, 2019

I was referred to Vance Thompson Vision, Fargo, ND by my local Grand Forks Optometrist from Valley Vision in Grand Forks, ND, Dr. Jason Schaff. I'm very happy that he did. The Drs. at Vance Thompson Vision were very professional, explained everything that would be done, and corrected my vision to my satisfaction. Dr. Michael Greenwood, Dr. Nick Risbrudt, Dr. Hanson, Kendra, Laura, Jake, and numerous others, were people that worked with me during this process. They were all professional, knowledgeable, and extremely courteous. It's nice not having to worry about glasses and contacts anymore. Being handicapped makes going through this process even more rewarding. This process all started with my developing a cataract on my right eye. What a life changing experience this has been. Thank you everyone at Vance Thompson Vision.

November 6, 2019

The results of the procedure were fantastic! I immediately could see better as I left the office. This morning, I watched a little television, and the picture was vivid. It has been some time since things have been this clear. I look forward to the upcoming surgery to correct the problem with the other eye. Keep up the good work. Ron Holte

November 5, 2019

I would highly recommend this facility for medical services. I have had outstanding service from start to finish. The procedure was thoroughly explained in terms that I could understand and they gave me ample time to ask questions. Everyone that interacted with me was very kind and compassionate and put me at ease. In the early evening after the surgery, I was called by the surgeon and he asked how I was doing and if I had questions for him. He is very caring when it comes to his patients..

Vance Thompson Vision provided great care to my mom. They worked with her until she was capable of performing the task on her own, which led to her success! Her vision has improved greatly and we couldn't be more satisfied. My family is very grateful for the professionalism and service provided at Vance Thompson Vision. The staff went ABOVE and BEYOND any of our expectations!

This was my first visit to Vance Thompson Vision as a patient. From the moment I stepped into the reception area I was greeted by one of the Administrative Assistants (Jenny)with a nice warm greeting and was asked how she could help me. She did a very nice job, was very positive and professional. Alisia also works at the front desk and was very pleasant and professional. That initial contact helped to set the tone for the rest of my visit, which was all very positive. After completing some paperwork, a technician (Holly) took me back for a number of vision tests. She also introduced herself and was very positive and professional throughout the entire process, very helpful. I then met with the Optometrist, (Dr. Risbrudt) and the Physician who would be doing the surgery to remove my cataracts (Dr. Greenwood). Both of these Doctors were very professional and easy to communicate with, which is so helpful as a patient. My final contact was with Naomi and she did a great job of setting up my surgery times and coordinated my aftercare appointments with my Optometrist. She also explained the surgery process very well. Naomi also introduced herself and was very positive, helpful, and professional throughout our conversation. The Vance Thompson Vision facility is new and it is really set up well for the patients and the employees. As a facility it is warm and inviting also, which is important to me as a patient. Based on my positive experience with all of the staff that helped me and the facility itself, I would give Vance Thompson Vision a 5 star rating. Also because of my overall experience I feel very confident about my upcoming cataract surgeries with Dr. Greenwood taking care of me. I cannot forget to mention the nice work Paula does in answering the telephone for Vance Thompson Vision. She was very helpful and pleasant in answering my questions. That's an important job for any organization as that employee is actually the first contact a patient may have with that organization and that conversation can set a positive or negative tone. In this case, it was very positive! Thanks to all the good folks at Vance Thompson Vision! Keep up the good work!!

October 23, 2019

The office itself is very clean, modern, and filled with beverages and snacks while you wait. The staff is very nice and make sure all of your questions are answered.

The staff there was very welcoming and helpful. The technician was patient and very thorough and all the tests that she did. Dr. Greenwood spent extra time explaining my condition and I answered all my questions . When there is questions about insurance and what would possibly be covered they brought in a staff member who spoke specifically about those issues. A second stack person came in and explained how they would help ensure that the insurance claim would be appealed if necessary. The whole appointment was very thorough and the information helped me make the best decision for my health possible. I would recommend Vance Thompson vision to anyone with complex eye problems.

June 4, 2019

The staff at Vance Thompson Vision know the true meaning of "customer service". The process from start to finish was the best experience I have ever had with vision care. Dr. Greenwood and team were amazing to work with. I have already recommend this place to multiple friends and colleagues.

Making the decision to have Lasik and choosing Vance Thompson to do the procedure are two of the best decisions I've made. Dr. Greenwood and the staff at the Fargo location were excellent, friendly, experienced, and truely cared about my eye wellness. Thanks for the great experience and, although only 1 day after surgery, dramatically improving my vision.

February 22, 2019

The care I recently received at Vance Thompson Vision was top notch. The knowledge and expertise of Dr Greenwood and his staff made me feel very comfortable with the treatment I received. After my recent cataract/glaucoma and refractive surgery my vision improved dramatically. The correction exceeded my expectations. The procedure was pain free. I anticipated more discomfort. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend Vance Thompson Vision to a friend or family member.

January 24, 2019

From start to finish each person I eas in contact with made me feel at home. Dr. Greenwood was friendly, professional and thorough. His staff was efficient and explained each step in assesding my cataracts. Thank you for your awesome service and making me feel valued.

December 21, 2018

Dr. Greenwood and his team were AMAZING!! With my glasses fogging up while wearing masks at the hospital and my contacts being irritating- I knew I needed LASIK.

This surgery will definitely improve my quality of life, and I cannot thank everyone at Vance Thompson enough!

November 9, 2018

The staff at Vance Thompson Vision were all very kind and helpful. They did a great job explaining everything to me and making sure I felt comfortable during my initial exam and follow-up visits. Dr. Greenwood did a great job during my surgeries and even followed-up with a phone call the evening after my surgeries to see how I was doing. I am so happy with how well the surgeries turned out--I can see without glasses for the first time in over 50 years! I highly recommend Vance Thompson Vision and Dr. Greenwood.

November 8, 2018

Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Truly an exceptional experience! I highly recommend Vance Thompson Vision!

August 27, 2018

I don’t typically write reviews, but the care I received at Vance Thompson prompted me to share my experience. I previously had Lasik with Northern Lights Lasik, which was housed in the same space. Northern Lights promised me a lifetime satisfaction guarantee on my surgery, and then proceeded to leave town only months after my surgery. Fast-forward two years later, and I began having problems with one eye. I decided to seek a consultation with Vance Thompson Vision. Their thoroughness and state of the art equipment impressed me. I feel like they made sure they covered all their bases when assessing my vision. The staff is truly caring and friendly, especially Naomi. They treat you like a person, not just a number. I was very well taken care of before, during, and after my surgery. I am now 2 weeks post-op with my PRK procedure and am seeing 20/15. I am very happy with my results and recommend this practice to everyone!

July 12, 2018

Dr Michael Greenwood was fantastic! God has blessed him with gifted hands-Everyone on staff was caring and professional! And Naomi was especially kind and encouraging! They all made me feel more calm and confident- May God continue to bless them!

March 20, 2018

Dr. Greenwood and his entire staff were extremely friendly and caring while remaining professional at the same time. I was kept well-appraised of what was happening on a consistent basis. I especially appreciated a personal call from Dr. Greenwood as well as one from the surgery center a few hours after the surgery just to see how I was feeling. They get a 5-Star rating from me!

March 15, 2018

very professional - excellent results !

September 5, 2017

Amazing doctor and clinic team! Wouldn't trust my eyes with anyone else.

August 23, 2017

I had cataract surgery through Vance Thompson Vision. I was very pleased with their office and the people working there. Dr. Greenwood seemed interested in my concerns and, as far as I know, the surgery was successful. The staff working at the surgery location was also very professional and concerned with the surgery. I would recommend him and his associates to anyone who needed eye surgery.

July 19, 2017

Everyone was very pleasant and helpful. The doctor called after the procedure, not just having a nurse call. That meant a lot to me. He took the time to care about his patient.

May 20, 2017

Extremely positive experience! The quality of the staff and Dr. Greenwood is exemplary in this day of overworked health care providers. Thanks for your courteous and personal care.

May 17, 2017

It was the most courteous professional doctor visit that I have ever had, I sincerely wish that all other medical providers would follow your example. I feel that I am in very capable hands every time that I visit your facility. Thank You Dr. Greenwood and staff

I recently had Lasik done with Dr. Greenwood at Vance Thompson Vision in Fargo and I couldn't be happier. After my 1 week appointment I was seeing 20/10 thanks to Dr. Greenwood. The staff at Vance Thompson Vision is top notch. From the moment I walked in the door I was treated like I was the most important patient of the day. The level of care has far exceeded anything I have experienced before. Thank You to Everyone at Vance Thompson Vision!

September 29, 2016

I had a follow-up visit at Vance Thompson Vision in Fargo for a LASIK procedure previously obtained from another physician. Dr. Greenwood and the rest of the staff were so friendly, professional, and helpful. I ended up talking to someone in the Sioux Falls office as well during the process of scheduling my appointment, and she also went out of her way to help me. I couldn't have been much more pleased with either the quality of care or my interactions with everyone there.

June 14, 2021

I chose Vance Thompson in Fargo since it was highly recommended. The staff is pleasant and helpful. I wish I could remember all the names but Rachel Olson , Naomi Burckland and Dr. Messer were especially helpful. I didn’t see much of Dr. Greenwood which was surprising but I would rather have a surgeon who is good with his hands than his words! So far I am very pleased after cataract surgery last week!

July 14, 2021

From the very beginning of deciding to do lasik, to the calming of my nerves on surgery day; the staff at vance Thompson made me feel comfortable and at ease. I feel I made friends in such a short experience, and would hands down recommend this place to anyone even considering lasik!! Thanks Vance Thompson for such a memorable experience :red_heart:

I have never been treated as well. Each and every step in the process was handled with utmost care and professionalism. I salute you!

November 10, 2021

I now have vision I never thought I could have. Dr. Greenwood was so kind and concerned about my vision. It turned out so well. I’m delighted!

August 19, 2020

Both my husband and myself received the services of Dr. Greenwood, one year apart. Our experience has been excellent. We both had lenses placed at the time of our cataract surgery so we would not need to wear glasses and are extremely happy with the results. I also needed stents placed to address my condition of high pressures in my eyes and to avoid problems with glaucoma. The only issue I encountered following my surgery was with the eyesight in one eye that was not “as sharp” as Dr. Greenwood felt it should be. With one simple procedure he was able to get the vision 20/20 in that eye also. From our initial clinic visit, the kindness of everyone from front desk clerks and examining nurses through the surgical procedures, and then the follow up call to inquire how we were doing from Dr. Greenwood himself the evening of our surgeries, we couldn’t be more satisfied or happy with the results and have recommended Dr. Greenwood to others.

September 4, 2018

Explained the procedure and options well, very compassionate about the process. Called at 8:30 pm to check how I was doing after surgery. Superb staff that remembered who I was in follow up. Very well run clinic

March 24, 2017

Vance Thompson Vision is an excellent place. I had LASIK eye surgery done about a year ago. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. After years of wearing glasses and contacts, it is so great being able to wake up and be able to see. The doctors, nurses, and staff made you feel so comfortable and were so helpful. They made you feel like family. They did a great job at explaining the procedures and timelines for healing. Dr. Greenwood and his team are the best!!!!

July 19, 2022

I brought my mom to an appointment at Vance Thompson Vision and was so impressed with their customer service! The front desk staff greeted us with a smile and were so helpful. They even brought out coloring pages and colored pencils for my kids while we waited. The doctors were very thorough and patient. They took the time to explain everything to my mom and myself and answer any and all questions we had. I would recommend this place to anyone as they made our experience incredibly positive!

July 21, 2022

I can not touch my eyes or let anyone get near them. Vance Thompson made this cataract surgery was so easy for me. From the time you enter either building, you feel like a valued customer. They did a very thorough examination of my eyes and gave me a clear picture of where I was at and my choices to improve my sight. The days of the surgery went quickly and smoothly. I can not say enough about how thoroughly impressed I am with the team of professionals. I would recommend the Fargo office to anyone needing help with their sight.

Vance Thompson has some of the most thorough and thoughtful providers in Fargo. I had an eye check up with them and learned more about my lazy eye than any other vision center I’ve visited. They also took my dry eye symptoms seriously and were able to help me relive some pain the same day. I also completed a study with them and it was super easy, informative, and straightforward. When I moved they also sent me a personal gift to the city I was moving. The attention to detail and care goes above and beyond! Could not recommend more!

This is one of the most beautiful Vision Center I ever visited. One I entered in the clinic I have a worm welcome from the receptionists who helped me about my visit and showed me the snack section where I can eat (snacks, etc.) and drink (water, coke, coffe and/tea) for free (things I didn't find anywhere). The atmosphere is good and the assistants, nurses and doctor who talked to me, did that with patience and professionalism. And because of their professionalism, my cataract surgery was a success. This a a good place for resolving eyes' problems and deseases. And I recommand this clinic. #LetsGuide

Office staff is very pleasant. They’re always smiling and welcome you when you come in the door. Dr. Risbrudt and Dr. Greenwood take time to answer any questions, without making you feel rushed. They are great! The whole office is very hospitable.

I would like to say that my experience with Vance and Thompson has been very good. Everything was well planned and executed as planned. The only thing I can think of changing would be to have a little more time with the Doctor that did my surgery!
