Dr. Shannon Stanek and Erika are simply beyond amazing to work with. As someone with eyesight issue and who struggled with putting in contacts, they both really made this entire experience enjoyable and effective. I tried different eye places and they don't even compare to GR Ophthalmology in Caledonia. Very friendly, caring and efficient practice.

Can’t think of a thing! Here’s my Facebook review - This was my first time using GRO (Holland location), and I’ll tell ya, I wish I would’ve come here sooner. The staff was wonderful. So friendly, caring and concerned. I had a concerning issue with my eyes (double vision, one eye going crossed, etc) that’s been happening more and more frequently over the last few months. When it happened again today, I called the office and the got me an appt right away. I saw dr. Ashley Tholen, and I could not say better things about her. She was so kind and professional. And again, very caring and concerned as well. Not to mention determined to get to the bottom of my issue. We’re still working on sorting that out, but for the time being, I’ve at least been reassured that nothing serious is going on neurologically or anything like that. And just the fact that she gave me that reassurance, is so comforting. She’s so very easy to talk to, and made sure I understood the treatment plan thoroughly. The optician was great too, and so were the assistants (Leah?) and front desk staff. Thank you for your kindness and compassion today! You guys are wonderful!!!

I have been a patient of Grand Rapids Ophthalmology for many years they're great customer service and great group of doctors.

I was very pleased with Dr. Barrett’s discussion of any future cataract surgery for my eyes. It was information that I had not heard before. I appreciate his knowledge, and learning about the situation with my eyes well in advance of any such surgery.
