  • Joe LeGrand was great! He was very patient with my 10 month old who needs two prosthetics. She didn’t cry once and they came out great! People don’t even question they actually compliment how nice her eyes are while we’re out and about lol I would recommend him to anyone!

  • When we started our journey with Arrayah, our little “Ray of Hope”, we didn’t know what we would get to experience. A year into our cancer journey we found out that she was going to have to have her eye removed. After asking who we might consider working with, it was suggested that we talk with LeGrand Associates and Joseph LeGrand. When we met Joe for the first time, soon after our daughter lost her right eye, we found him to be very understanding and he did a great job of matching a very complicated blue. He also was a great help in training us in the process of removing the prosthesis as well as placing the prosthesis in the socket. Not only does he do excellent work, but he’s also compassionate and tender as he works with our child. The process of taking the prosthesis out and placing it back in the socket can be scary for a child, but we have always been impressed with how well he helps it to not be scary for our daughter.”

    – Ashley, father of Arrayah

  • “I wanted to drop you a note and thank you for the 14 years of service you have provided. Your office staff has always been very accommodating and responsive with scheduling. In today’s world of shortcuts, it is nice to have a friendly voice on the other end of the line. Your work is appreciated as well, I have never had any trouble with the prosthetic in any way, it has been flawless. Craftsmanship is something I value and yours is excellent, I am looking forward to the continuation of our relationship.”

  • “Our 14-year old daughter has been a patient of Joe LeGrand’s since she was diagnosed with microopthalmia at birth. We could not have asked for a more professional, caring, or wonderful patient care provider than Joe. He turned a devastating diagnosis into something that we, as a family, have
    been able to deal with, thanks to his compassion and medical competence. We are lucky to have him! The Rotmans thank you, Joe!”
