Dr Wilke is by far the best Dr I’ve seen in your office . Most thorough and explained everything . I’ve seen 4 there. I was ready to change practices but thought I’d try one more time . I am recommending him to everyone!

(Holland location) Attentive and friendly every step of the way. Very patient and helpful with a special shout out to Adam who helped my son pick out some new frames. Also we never waited more than a minute or two for the eye exam (Dr DeKuiper), to the contacts expert. Would highly recommend.

Very professional and courteous. My family has been getting our eye exams and eyeglasses at the Grandville location for about three years now, and find the staff to be very friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. The selection of eyeglasses blows the doors off the place we used to go to for eyecare.

I had one eye done to remove a cataract and replace the lens and cannot believe the difference already. I am can't wait to get other eye done! Dr. Maullem and his staff are very professional and personable.

Very caring staff as well as Dr. Cowden. They were all very professional as well as competent. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this office. Great about followup. Couldn't have asked for better.

I had no issues with my appointment. Everyone was welcoming, understanding, and timely. Continue what you are doing!

Got an appointment the same day I called. I had a good reception when I got there, was called to my appointment right on time. Dr. Wall was most helpful and very informative. I will recommend them to all my friends.

Always a pleasure coming into the office. Everyone is so helpful and both docs ROCK!

The reception area is confusing, such as which desk to go to. There can be patients standing around not knowing where to check in. It is confusing what to do in the optical area, until you figure out that you need to sign in at the desk in back. Other than that, great place, friendly people!

My last visit was great. I was taken back right on time. The staff was very friendly. And as always Dr. Was a joy. I decided not to purchase glasses that day, so the optical dept. gave me my prescription as requested .

They are the best ophthalmology practice in Grand Rapids. Three generations of my family have been patients.

Quick, and to the point with both kids. Good experience and we will return in the future.
