Dr. DenBraber is by far the best ophthalmologist around. He is kind, thorough, and truly cares about his patients. He has cared for our family for years. He has corrected issues preventing damaged eyesight in my daughter and took me in immediately when I had burdock in my eye, preventing damage an infection.

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 .

Dr Hamilton was thorough, not rushed and very personable. It's always a pleasure to speak with her about my ophthalmologic concerns. She is knowledgeable, yet down to earth. I appreciate her care.

Every experience I've had at GRO has been smooth and seamless. From the moment of check-in to leaving at check-out, everyone is so helpful, thorough, informative, and friendly. The billing office has called me in advance to inform me that my insurance won't cover an exam for another couple month months because it was not quite 2 years since my last exam and gave me to option to reschedule. From the simple eye exam for myself to the cataracts surgery of my elderly mother, I've had nothing but great experiences. The prescription people know their glasses so well thet can pull frames in the price-point you're looking for. And Dr.Huizenga addressed my every concern, even introduced me to the skin solutions people for consideration of permanent cosmetic options for my thinning eye lashes. I could go on with this "book" I've ended up writing, but it would say the same thing... GRO is 5 star service hands down.

Wait time for the doctor while in an exam room was over a half hour. That's not very considerate of the patient's time.
