It seems that people only take the time to make a comment when they had a bad time. For my part, I had a great experience at the East Beltline location of Grand Rapids Ophthalmology. All of the staff was courteous and professional and the waiting areas are comfortable and inviting. After my new glasses arrived, I found that they didn't fit very well and were causing a blister on my nose so I went back in and had them fitting perfectly back on my face within 20 minutes. I'm impressed by the service and happy to be a patient. I'd recommend this to anyone. Of course, as with all of us, people can have a bad day and that can sometimes translate into how they treat a customer, but that can happen anywhere and I would say that by and large, that isn't the norm for Grand Rapids Ophthalmology.

Aside from the early hour, it was a very nice experience. I had laser surgery to remove some membrane on my lens. I was pretty nervous but it was fast and relatively painless. And no more blurry words!!!!!!!

I had cataract extraction with lens implants in both of my eyes. Everything was handled professionally. Dr Barrett's staff was professional, listened to my concerns and needs. They explained everything they were doing. Preop, intraop and post op experience was perfect. I was well taken care of and everything was explained and handled professionally. I was given phone numbers if I had any concerns or problems. Didn't need or use them as, everything proceeded without any problems. I highly recommend Grand Rapids Ophthalmology...GJG
