Den Braber is passionate about eye care. I've been to many OD's and I have to say he's the best.

I met Dr. Diekema for the first time this week, as she was taking the place of my regular doctor who was on maternity leave. Dr. Diekema did a nice job with my eye exam, she took her time and did not rush through things, and she answered all of my questions and concerns thoroughly and completely. I felt very comfortable, and it is good to know that G.R. Ophthalmology has very capable people like Dr. Diekema to step in when needed. Thanks, R.K.Roon

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.

I love the Ionia location above all others. Dr. Den Braber really cares about my satisfaction and well-being. He is genuine and knowledgeable. His assistants are wonderful as well. I will not point fingers but other locations I have been to, made me feel like a number and impersonal.

The registration was a breeze. Had a bit of a problem finding a spot in the waiting room because I was in a power chair. Waiting area was very clean. Assistant called me back and took me the easiest way for my wheelchair to check my vision, eye pressure and dialate my eyes. Took me to the waiting area while my eyes dilated. I was put in an exam room where Dr. Barrett came and did my diabetic eye exam proficiently and interested in any concerns I had. Released I checked out and left. All of the staff and Dr. Barrett were all very professional and kind. Grand Rapids Ophthalmology at 68th St, is an office I would recommend to others with out hesitation.

Dr. Barrett was absolutely amazing! I went in for my FREE eye consultation to see if I was a good candidate for lasik. Barrett talked me through the process, showed me a video about the surgery and discussed the several options I had available. He made me feel comfortable and wasn't pushy. During the surgery he talked me through it all as I had become a little nervous. He was very meticulous and when it comes to my eyes I can appreciate that he was such a perfectionist! Everyone involved was very nice too! I also want to thank Katie Flikkema for persuading me to do this. She's was so friendly! It was a lot more affordable than I thought it would be and they even offer financing if it's needed! Thank you ALL!!!

This was my first appointment with this practice tho I’ve had many years of personal experience as an ophthalmology patient outside of Michigan. The process from my initial phone call through the medical exam, and checkout, was efficient, effective, courteous, friendly and professional. My expectations were exceeded.

The staff and doctor are so great. We are seen on time or just a little after our apt. My son loves Dr. Pippo. ( I probably spelt that wrong 😝) she is so great with him. The only complaint is Grandville parking lot is terrible. Other then that I would definitely recommend to friends and family.
