Dr. Piippo did such an amazing job correcting the double vision I dealt with for over 30 years. She was honest about the intensity of the procedure, repaired damage in my eye and worked with me to submit paperwork to my employer for time off of work. This surgery has helped me so much. Thank you!

Dr. Piippo did an excellent job helping me through the eye surgery process and helped me get my vision back. I was diagnosed with PHPV as an infant growing up with lots of problems I was told I would be able to get surgery when I turned 18. I did Dr. Piippo did the surgery my eye was almost normal, going from 20/100 vision to almost 20/40 seemed like a miracle. Thanks, Dr. Piippo

Horrible. She misdiagnosed my daughter saying she had Tics in her eyes without even checking to see if she really did have them. She said my daughter was far sighted, but refused to give her glasses. We went for a second opinion and am so glad we did as my daughter does not have tics and yes she is far sighted and for sure needed glasses. When I called and was so furious about it, she had one of her workers call me and stood by her words. Would never go to her again for either of my children.
Holland, MI |
Dr. Piippo was quick to jump to surgery after only seeing my son for 3 minutes. She never spoke to my son, was always at least an hour late to her appointments and have very little communication with us. After two visits, we immediately changed doctors.
Grand Rapids, MI |
After an appointment with Dr. Piippo, I had a question about something that she said during the exam. She seemed puzzled by something in her findings. I called the next day to ask her the question, have called 4 times and she has not returned my call for 3 weeks.
