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

Dr.Boyle is truly outstanding! Takes his time explaining things to you before and after surgery. I would honestly recommend him to anyone. The staff is always friendly when you visit or call the Walker St location.

I was so happy with the experience. I was informed fully. He anticipated my needs. Went over everything thoroughly. I was just all around satisfied.

I liked the fact that Dr. Gindzin took the time to summarize my current status and options after he examined my eyes. He also patiently responded to my questions about some recent stem cell research. All in all, I had a great appointment. I like the check in kiosks and rearranged waiting area. Having an attendant meet patients to guide us thru our introduction to the new check in process was appreciated. Thank you!

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

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.
