Meet Teddy Bear

Meet Teddy Bear, our office’s budding therapy dog. Sporting a silky soft coat and a demeanor as serene as the morning itself, Teddy has quickly endeared himself to both the young and the elderly during his morning sessions with Dr. Van Dran.

It’s worth noting that Teddy is here only in the mornings, as we’ve found it to be quite taxing for him to interact with a myriad of new faces throughout the day. To ensure continuity and care, his adorable stand-in takes over in the afternoons.

Teddy’s journey began at the High Desert Humane Society, where he was fostered along with his mother and four siblings from the tender age of 3 to 10 weeks.

He’s currently undergoing training to extend his gentle presence to hospitals and senior care facilities, aiming to spread a little love and warmth to those in dire need of comfort.

At Dr Rhonda K Van Dran O.D., P.C., each member of our team is selected based on their experience and dedication to providing personalized care to our optometry patients.

Our entire optometry staff is committed to ensuring the comfort and satisfaction our patients. We do our best to work with your busy schedule by finding appointment times that meet your needs. Our knowledgeable staff at Dr Rhonda K Van Dran O.D., P.C. will work with you to help you understand your vision insurance coverage and ensure you get the best vision care possible.
