The care and treatment at GR Ophthamalogy is always excellent. My office visit with Dr. Huizinga was no exception. She was kind and offered me a listening ear. I couldn’t ask for more. Thank you!

Dr knew what was wrong. Gave me simple instructions to correct my eyes. I didn’t need new glasses. Found out I was sleeping with my eyes partially open. And my fan was blowing in my face. Moved. The fan and mich better in the morning

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.

Hands down - best care around for your eye care needs! My mother is actually the patient here but she is convinced (and so am I) that without Dr. Gindzin and Dr. Cowden she wouldn't have the sight that she does. Dr. Gindzin always makes her day with his kindness. Very thankful for such gifted surgeons and their friendly staff!

I saw the doctor for an eye problem. She spent time with me, thoroughly explained the issue and the treatment, and was efficient with both of our time.

I was scheduled for testing which you couldn’t do because someone failed to schedule the equipment internally. Also, Dr. Kendall spent a total of about 2 minutes with me. Efficiency is good, but a moment of small talk can improve the experience.

Dr. Shannon Stanek and Erika are simply beyond amazing to work with. As someone with eyesight issue and who struggled with putting in contacts, they both really made this entire experience enjoyable and effective. I tried different eye places and they don't even compare to GR Ophthalmology in Caledonia. Very friendly, caring and efficient practice.
