“Made such a difference in my life…”

I definitely regret waiting so long to get LASIK. It has made such a difference in my life—I see 20/20 for the first time since I was 8! It’s amazing. One thing that held me back was fear… but from the minute I stepped into Grand Rapids Ophthalmology, those fears were gone.

-Jana H

“Not scary at all…”

It was not scary at all…15 minutes after the surgery, I could read the clock at the end of the hallway. Pretty amazing, huh? 15 years later, I’m still 20/20!

-Tommy C.

Excellent care from the start. Great staff and a fantastic doctor. Going to recommend GRO to my friends and family. Thank you, Dr. Muallem.

Dr. Cowden and his staff do a wonderful job taking care of you. Thank you so much for making me comfortable and well cared for. But most of all, thank you for my wonderful vision.

“Honest and to the point…”

I have experienced the best with Dr. Muallem and his staff. He was very informative, highly skilled, and patient oriented. I have developed trust in his ethics and integrity. He was honest and to the point. He made great recommendations. In my circumstance, I am genuinely appreciative and happy with Dr. Muallem.

-Stacy Z.

“Constantly reassured…”

On the day of my surgery, I was greeted with friendly staff, taken in right away, and was constantly reassured that everything was going to be fine, not only from the nurses but…Dr. Cowden, himself. I am so glad that everything went smoothly [and] that I was made to feel comfortable during the entire visit.

-Kassandra M.

“Great listeners…”

I’m so grateful for Dr. Muallem and his staff’s unique passion to be great listeners. Will be recommending your office for many years to come! Thank you for the miracle of vision.
