I have received excellent care at Grand Rapids Opthamology at all of the locations I’ve visited. The staff is very knowledgeable, professional and very friendly. Dr Cowden is an excellent Doctor. I highly recommend GRO.

Really nice office with professional staff and a large selection of glasses. One staff member asked me questions about how I prefer my glasses to fit and was able to help me narrow down my search from hundreds of options to a couple dozen. I highly recommend this office.

I hadn't been to the Walker office in a few years, and was amazed at how well run it is going, and no waiting! I don't kow what they did, but it is working! I will gladly drive there again for my appointments.

I really like Dr. Dunning, just wasn’t that impressed with the two other people that helped before I saw Dr. Dunning. I’m assuming they were pretty new.

The entire staff was very sweet and kind. They got me in very quickly. Dr DenBraden was amazing and genuinely concerned for my recent vision loss and immediately made contact with the neuro ophthalmologist. Then the Dr himself called me about the conversation he had with the neuro ophthalmologist. I feel like they all answered my questions and just really showed me that they not only love their jobs but also love their patients. I think they went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable during my time of vision loss. I will tell everyone in the community that I know of the high ratings I have for this place. Thank you Grand Rapids Ophthalmology for being so caring and amazing!
