Complete Family Eyecare Earns Esteemed 2013 Angie’s List Super Service Award


Dr. Steven Reinders

Steve Reinders, Optometrist and Owner

I grew up on a farm in Southwestern MN and graduated from Windom High School.  After picking rocks, walking beans and feeding cattle for 18 years, I attended the University of MN for undergraduate studies and after several grueling years of school received a Doctorate in Optometry from Pacific University in 1993.  I then served the Southern suburbs while on staff at Park Nicollet Clinic in Burnsville for 17 years before opening Complete Family Eyecare in 2010 with my wife Jennifer

I have been married to Jennifer since 2003 and have two daughters, Abigail and Isabelle (a.k.a. "Nitro and Glycerin").  When not chasing the maniac children, I like to frequent Lake Vermillion for golfing, water sports and searching for the impossible Muskie. I also enjoy 1980’s Rock N’ Roll and good humor. 

 

Reinders

Jennifer Reinders, Manager and Owner

Jennifer was born in Virginia MN and graduated from Apple Valley (Valley Girl) High School. Jennifer is a graduate of Methodist School of Radiology and continues her radiology career part time at Methodist Hospital in addition to managing Complete Family Eyecare (as well as raising two children – three if you include Dr. Steve).

Jennifer has been the driving force behind Complete Family Eyecare since its inception.  When in the clinic (she claims 3 days per week?), she can usually be found in her back office dungeon doing battle with insurance companies. If not in her office or at Methodist, she can be found hauling Nitro and Glycerine to endless activities and taking care of the Reinders household. In her 15 minutes of free time per week, Jennifer enjoys gardening and real life TV.

 

Tyler Young

Tyler Young,  ABO Certified Optician

Tyler hales from Great Falls, Montana and is our original employee.  He has a degree in Business Administration from the University of Montana but somehow found tranquility in the Eyeball Business.  He has the reputation for taking the most broken pair of glasses and magically turning it back into functional eyewear.   Tyler has a great personality and has been blessed with the “gift to gab.”  He goes fishing more than Al Linder and will be happy to share his fishing photos with you.   He is scheduled to be married summer of 2014 as long as his fishing schedule allows for it.

 

Chantel

Chantel Reid, ABO Certified Optician

Chantel serves in the critical role of “Director of First Impressions.”  She commands the front desk and is the face behind the friendly voice on our scheduling line.  Chantel is originally from Eagle Lake, Minnesota. We were very fortunate to rescue Chantel from the corporate optical world and bring her on staff in 2012.  Besides taking excellent care of patients and countless office tasks, Chantel also assists Jennifer with the insurance battle.   All this while putting up with Tyler’s foolishness on a daily basis.

In her spare time Chantel enjoys fishing and the outdoors.  Her and her boyfriend Gilbert have a lake property where most of their weekends are spent .

 

Alley

Alley Poquette, Intern “Eye Doctor to be”

In an attempt to be an educational clinic with some degree of seriousness, we are pleased to have interns from St. Catherine’s University rotate through our office.  Our most recent  intern (victim) is Alley Poquette who comes to us with a degree in Biology looking to get away from the microscope and into the eyeball world.  She is currently applying to Midwestern College of Optometry and with a little luck and a nice letter of recommendation from Dr. Steve, she will begin her second four years of massive studying and gigantic student loans in the fall of 2014.  

Besides her devotion to art and science of Optometry, Alley enjoys waterskiing and is obsessed with the 1990’s boy band “Hanson.”
Easiest letter of recommendation I have ever written.

 

Kathy

Kathy Aho

You can’t have a family owned and operated clinic without the mother-in-law being involved. Jennifer’s mother Kathy is originally from Babbit, MN and has two daughters and four grandchildren – all girls. Kathy have been in nursing for over 30 years working in the world of Ears, Nose and Throat – ironically very close to the eyes. Kathy reluctantly assists Jennifer with the insurance battle (take 3 people) when not in clinic.
Kathy and her husband of 35 years spend their spare time at their cabin on Lake Vermillion.  They are also instrumental in helping Jennifer and Dr. Steve contain Nitro and Glycerin.

 

Thanks for taking the time for reading our Biographies. Hope you enjoyed the humor – it will only be better when you visit our clinic.

Dr. Steve
