Our exceptional, friendly staff is our greatest asset. They are excited about our services, and they care personally about getting the best results for our patients.
Our receptionists will try to accommodate your busy schedule by finding appointments that suit your needs. We will help you understand your insurance coverage and if financial arrangements are necessary, we will be glad to help you develop a plan to make your vision care treatment possible.
Our Flagstaff Family
Our father-daughter optometrist duo, Dr. Patrick Padrnos and Dr. Sarah Padrnos-Hulen, is knowledgeable and experienced in handling every eye and vision need, while our other daughter, licensed optician Jamie Padrnos-Sema, will handle all your optical needs. We pride ourselves on keeping up-to-date with modern optometric technology and contemporary treatments. Whether you need a routine adult eye exam, a pediatric eye exam, treatment for ocular disease, a contact lens fitting for hard-to-fit conditions or co-management of laser surgery, we’ll meet you with a smile and great advice!
Jamie was raised in Flagstaff and opened the family practice with her father in June of 2003. Becoming very interested in the optical field, and working in the industry for over 10 years, Jamie propelled herself to excellence while pursuing her Optician’s license. Jamie earned her license in September of 2005 and now manages the optical. She has a friendly smile and warm personality.
Jamie is hard-working and diligent, always aiming to please, and always going “the extra mile” for our patients. She is constantly brainstorming new and exciting ideas for the future of Flagstaff Vision.
Dana is an Arizona native. She grew up in Winslow and made the move to Flagstaff approximately 15 years ago. She has been an Optician for 18 years and came to work for us in the summer of 2005. Dana is dedicated and hard-working and still finds time to make us smile. Occasionally we get to hear her amazing vocals and see her wicked dance moves. Dana is beautiful inside as well as out. She is an indispensable part of Flagstaff Vision (as she often reminds us). She’s as good as family.
Joani has been in the optical business for over 20 years. She made the move from the northwest to our southwestern mountain town in December of 2009. One word I would use to describe our fiery red head is “cool”. When asked what drew her to Flagstaff she replied “Deep blue skies and miles of mountain bike trails.” Her laid back, easy going demeanor, along with her experience has made her an essential as well as enjoyable addition to the
Flagstaff Vision team. We are lucky to have her.
As a Flagstaff native, Ashlie enjoys getting outdoors and taking advantage of the beautiful, Flagstaff scenery. She has a passion for photography and Boston Terriers. Ashlie came to work with Flagstaff Vision, full time, in May of 2013. She has a thirst for knowledge and continues to impress us with her ability to learn. Being a fashion-forward guru, Ashlie has propelled herself to the top of our “eyewear stylist” list. If you are looking for a hot new look, Ashlie is the go-to girl!
From the west coast, to the east coast, and back again, our signature “So-Cal” girl Kim, found her way to Flagstaff and (lucky for us) into Flagstaff Vision as our newest member in May 2014. She spent most of her days soaking up the sun in Palm Springs before moving to Bend, OR where she received her ABO/NCLE credentials. Kim has been an optician for over 20 years. Her experience and passion in this field are always evident in everything she does.
