DR MARY ANN ZASTROW
Dr. Mary Ann Zastrow completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree with Honors in Biology. After graduating from UW-Madison, she attended the New England College of Optometry and earned her Doctor of Optometry degree. Her training includes internship rotations at the Boston Children’s Hospital, Veteran Affairs Hospital in Boston, and a Special Populations rotation that included Diabetic and Low Vision Specialties. These rotations concentrated on developing refractive skills, the diagnosis and treatment of ocular disease, low vision and pediatrics. After earning her Doctorate degree, Dr. Zastrow knew that she wanted to move back and practice in her home state. Although Dr. Zastrow and her husband Ben found it hard to leave their beloved Red Sox, being close to family and friends was always a priority. Benjamin was the first to join the Downtown Minneapolis hustle and bustle with Target Corporation after he attained his MBA at the Carlson School of Management. Dr. Zastrow was excited for the opportunity to join him downtown where she felt the opportunity to own a practice would be a challenging and rewarding next step in her career.

He was appointed to the Minnesota Board of Examiners in Optometry by the governor and served as president. He sees patients on a part time basis and has embraced the new technologies integrated into the practice by Dr. Zastrow.
