She does a great job and it certainly shows by the line of people that seem to be waiting for her each time I go to see her.


I am happy with Dr. LeTarte


This was my first appointment/visit with Dr. LeTarte and L.O. EYE. I was impressed and heartened with the considerate professionalism of the entire team. I never felt rushed during my eye exam nor pressured to purchase a product. Very nice experience!!


awesome experience!


Great experience as always. Good conversation and a friendly smile.


She is an amazing eye doctor


I have seen many of eye doctors or optometrists over the years and there isn’t ANY I like better then Dr. Letarte. She is so friendly, listens, explains and is so down to earth it’s like talking to family! Best eye doctor around is my opinion!!


This was my daughters first eye exam. Sarah the tech was amazing, knew her job well and made my 4 year old very comfortable doing all the pre testing. Dr. LeTarte was excellent in patient care and gave my daughter a very thorough exam. Very happy with our visit and would recommend Dr. LeTarte to anyone!


Dr. LeTarte is a fantastic doctor. She is very professional, compassionate, and thorough. She takes time to listen, and makes me feel like she cares about me.


I have been seeing Dr. Latarte for many years and never consider switching!


Dr LeTarte is an awesome provider. So professional.


My appointment was at 7:35 am I got in with the person who does the initial exam right away. After I was put in the waiting room to wait for the doctor to see me I waited for over 30 minutes. I did not have a dilation of my eyes and I was the first appointment of the day. So I am not sure why I had to wait for 30 minutes. Had I known that I would have had to wait that long, I would have made the appointment later in the day, as I had to go to work. I assumed (perhaps wrongly) that having the first appointment, the office would not be behind yet and I would be seen when my appointment was scheduled.


The only problem I have is that I was there for 3 hours for an eye exam. Waited forever!!! My wife had the same experience and then I took my kids in yesterday at the Lake Lansing location and waited 45 minutes after appt time just to get their eye exam started. In total we spent two hours there. Too long for a 6 and 8 year old. We may be looking to go some place else if this isn’t addressed.


I have been a patient of Doctor LaTarte for a number of years. She seems interested in me as a patient and educates me as to my vision issues. Dr. LeTarte always spends whatever time is required to conduct a thorough exam and answer my questions.


We love Dr Letart & feel very confident in her abilities.


Dr. LeTarte is friendly and efficient.


Dr. LeTarte is a kind, professional provider. Every interaction I have ever had with her has been positive and informational.


Dr. LeTarte is knowledgeable and personable. I am happy to be her patient.


After experiencing such a long appt for the first time, I was not a fan of the way exams are done now by only having the Doctor do the final part of the exam.


Only complaint - she is constantly moving between locations. I had to cancel an appointment and re-schedule because she was going to be in Grand Ledge and not at the Sparrow Medical Bldg.


The doctor was fine. The wait was too long. I was at the office for 2.5 hours. Overbooking is not customer service. Not happy with the wait time.


She was very nice liked her a lot


Outstanding experience - she's the reason I come back


Love Dr Latarte. Have been coming to her since she started! Must love her since I rebook w her every time!


Dr. LaTarte is one of the kindest, most caring doctors I have. She's a good listener and is sure to make sure I understand everything she is telling me.


Dr. Le tarte was engaging. Was informative in response to my questions.


Phenomenal! Kind, caring, patient and professional.


I felt at ease talking to her and felt she really cared about my eye health. Would highly recommend her to others.


The only complaint I have is that I wait 2 hours to be seen by the doctor. Not once did I get I'm sorry for the wait. Never ever have I waited 2 hours to see a doctor

I have undergone an exam by Dr. LeTarte for quite a few years now. She is always professional, thorough, and pleasant in her patient examination.

I always try and schedule with her to the point of arranging my schedule to hers and recommending her.


Enjoyable first visit. However she does speak very fast and it, at times, was hard to follow her.

I wish all doctors could be as open, honest, caring, and compassionate as her.

Dr. LeTarte is worth the wait because I know when it is my turn, I will have the time I need too. She is a good listener.

The doctor was extremely late and all over the place. She rushed through the appointment and didn't listen to my complaints. I will not return to see her.

Dr, LaTarte is fabulous! She listens to concerns and comes up with a plan.


My appts. With Dr LeTarte are so smoothe. I especially like the set up at her office away from the main office in Coolidge. Much more mainstreamed, not so many stops, she is an awesome doctor.

I love her patience.


I have been a patient of this doctor for many years. She is always a delight.


Very good.


Very good results (even though I wanted more done for floaters and cataracts, she assured me they aren't quite ready in order to be covered by insurance--practical).


The entire staff was very friendly and personable.


I like Dr. LeTarte very much. I don't know why I was changed from my previous Dr. but I am glad I was . . . guess she's just more personable, friendly.


I have the highest respect for and confidence in Doctor LeTarte. She diagnosed a defect in my eye that required monitoring by a specialist.


I have been seeing Dr. LeTarte for a significant period of time. She has always been professional and thorough in her examinations. She is the sole reason that I have continued to be a patient of L.O.


She spoke a bit fast - she also had to leave the office a couple times. 1 time was obvious, the other was not quite. So I did not really feel like she was totally present.


This doctor began to 'interrogate' me without explaining her direction or her reasoning. This after spending two hours to get a basic eye exam without dialation. A better way to approach a patient would be by proving information and education.


I recommend Dr. LeTarte to all of my friends and family. She is the best O.D. I've ever had - thorough, genuine, and accurate.


Dr. LeTarte is excellent.


My husband and I are very pleased with the care we receive from Dr. LeTarte. She is very thorough on our eye exam and asks pertinent questions on any health issues. We wouldn't go to any other optometrist.

Excellent clinician. Dr. LeTarte identified changes on my retina that promptly got me referred to a glaucoma specialist and a retinal specialist. I have every confidence in her ability to correct and protect my vision, and to refer me where I need to go in a timely manner.


She could spend more time with the patient. Sometimes I feel rushed or like I'm not getting the whole story.


Always friendly and professional. Goes above and beyond to give quality compassionate care every time!


I really like her attention to details and reassuring me that she has my best interest at heart. She's caring and sensitive to my overall eye medical care.


She's the best!


Dr. LeTarte is very careful with our contact lens prescription. She took our needs into consideration and gave us choices. She let us try contact lens and gave us exam after the trial. I will recommend her to my family and friends
