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.

The doctor was knowledgeable, and very helpful he explained what was going on. What I could expect. This is always helpful. I've been coming to Grand Rapids Ophthalmology for many years now for my diabetic eye test. I won't go anywhere else.

My appt was 9:25 and seemed slower than usual this time. Dr G is always kind, courteous and takes the time needed for thorough explanations. Will continue to recommend him to my friends.

Dr. Muallem is an excellent surgeon. He and Dr. Norris shared notes. He examined my eyes and found they had gotten worse than the day before my body was fighting everything they were doing to fight premature glaucoma. Dr. Muallem doesn't do surgeries on Friday but he made an exception and done it on s Friday. He is a blessing from God. He also let me know there are no guarantees. Thank you dr. Norris and tech and Dr. Muallem.
