  • ""From the beginning and throughout my [accident] recovery process, Dr. Kruger and her staff have listened and intuitively adjusted therapy to meet my needs. Her staff is a wonderful complement to her practice. From the outset, I had no idea to the extent of damage that I had sustained and verbalizing what I was experiencing was very difficult for me, still Dr. Kruger and her staff used training and experience to help me heal.

    I am forever grateful for the care that I received and will recommend putting 100% trust in the services of Dr. Kruger and her staff.""
  • ""Dr. Kruger and her staff are AMAZING!!! Working with Judy in my therapy was nothing but the best treatment. As silly as some of the treatment seamed at first, it really did work for me, I saw results almost always right away. Simple and very fun! Judy was always able to work with my schedule, which was another great benefit. In my option, receiving the different light therapy treatments has been a huge important part of my recovery. I am a firm believer in Dr. Kruger's work. I am still continuing and will continue to use my light colored glasses as needed. I highly recommend the services provided by Vision Transformation. Nothing but the best treatment from Dr. Kruger and staff! Thank you to you all!""
