The visit was quick and very informative. I really like Dr Huizenga. She is very thorough and takes the time to explain her findings even if there are minimal or no changes at all. I never feel rushed. The whole staff is very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Grand Rapids Opthamology.

My experience was awesome with Dr Fenton. She took extra time with me and made my visit better than I expected. He expertise was much appreciated and she explained everything to me in detail. I would highly recommend using her on your next eye exam.

Dr Boyle is the best! He was recommended by my family Dr. as one of the best in Grand Rapids, and she was right.

Thank you Dr. Cowden and GRO staff! This office is very professional and works like a well oiled machine. The office is clean and inviting and the staff is incredibly knowledgeable. I’ve worn glasses since elementary school and yesterday GRO made lasik the easiest decision I’ve ever made. Dr. Cowden and all the staff made the procedure comfortable and easy. Here’s my first photo in 18 years where I can see without the assistance of glasses or contacts. I’m already so thankful.

Dr. Gindzin is without a doubt one of the best if not the best Dr. I have ever visited. He is never too busy to answer your questions. I feel very confident being in his care.

I went in for a Lasik consultation, and had an honest discussion with the doctor, and we determined that the surgery was not right for me at this time. I appreciated the honesty, and did not feel like I was getting any kind of a "sales pitch" for the surgery. I was presented options, but am now content with how things are, and glad that we had the discussion!

Good selection of frames, quality doctors. I've had multiple exams here and they were very understanding even when I had a reaction to eyes getting dilated. They also accept VSP insurance

I am so privileged to have an eye care team composed by two of the most outstanding human beings on top of being stellar medical professionals. Dr. Gindzen and Dr. Barrett treat their patients with empathy and this makes me feel at ease as someone who has experienced vision problems since age 3. Thank you both for your dedication and excellent care.
