Dr. Jaime L. Haaland recently celebrated 13 years serving the Minot community through her optometry practice. She held a grand opening for her new location as well as a celebration of this milestone on Sept. 26 through Sept. 28. Dr. Haaland’s new office is located at 932 37th Avenue SW, down the street from Walmart.

“I loved being downtown, but our office and our space really just needed an update,” said Dr. Haaland about the decision to move. Dr. Haaland’s office offers a modern, cool vibe while maintaining a professional atmosphere.

Patients are greeted right away at the reception desk with a cozy, modern fireplace behind it. The seating area off to the left hosts chairs and a TV mounted to the wall playing the latest hits. To the right are consultation desks and walls of glasses where patients will get fitted for their new eyewear.

“Certainly all of the downtown construction, with the parking structures and the streets, made me want to (move) sooner but it still took me quite a while to find the space I really wanted,” said Dr. Haaland said.

Dr. Haaland and her friend, Darin S. Scherr with Edward Jones, bought the land and built the office spaces together. Dr. Haaland’s office is at one end while Scherr’s is at the other, with spaces in-between available for rent.

Ashton Gerard/MDN Dr. Jaime L. Haaland’s office, located at 932 37th Avenue SW, is located at the left of the building while Darin S. Scherr’s is at the right.

“We’re excited to be here,” said Dr. Haaland. “It’s just easier access for our patients, for our staff. It’s a new space that I’m really proud of and I love walking through the front door.”
