As always we r impressed w/services. Dr was very cordial, thorough w/exam & informative of her condition. His assistant was courteous, spoke clearly, loudly & addressed her face to face which is important due to her hearing loss. Thank u for fitting her in your busy schedule today, we were very worried about her.

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.

Dr. Boyle is a very thorough and honest doctor that is willing to discuss any concerns that you have with him in as much detail as you need. He is very responsive to his patients and he talks to you with care and respect. The staff at the front desk and the technicians are also very friendly and I would not hesitate to visit GRO in the future with my eye care needs.

I can see pure white and real blue again! I didn’t realize I was seeing everything thru a yellow/greenish filter. I couldn’t believe the color of the blue sky this morning compared the blue/grayish color thru the other eye.
