Grand Rapids Ophthalmology does a great job. I have been going to David Barrett for 15 years and he is an outstanding Ophthalmologist. I have been very happy with the care he has provided over those years. As much as Grand Rapids Ophthalmology is a large practice,I feel the care I have received there has far exceeded much smaller practices I have worked with in various parts of the country over many years.

From start to finish everyone there was very friendly and professional. They made me feel comfortable and right at home. I appreciate all the help from Katie Flikkema. She talked me into having the lasik done and I'm so glad I finally listened to her! It was a lot more affordable than I thought it would be and they even offer financing if you don't have the full amount! I highly recommend this place if you're considering lasik. Go in and have a free consultation to see if you're a candidate! Tell them Katie Flikkema sent you! Dr Barrett was very professional and incredibly precise!
