in Florida in winter. Michigan in summer |
Dr. Gindzin is a wonderful surgeon. He is also excellent in explaining your condition, how he plans to resolve it and what you must do to take care of yourself. A wonderful Doctor!
in Comstock Park, MI |
I lost vision in my right eye in 2012, and after Dr. Gindzin administered a series of shots in my eye my sight returned! Hooray! I see him bi-monthly for a check up, and all is well. He’s a great human being, and very skilled. He also fixed my wife’s detached retina. I’m glad he’s younger than me, so he’ll not retire till after I’m gone.
in Grand Haven, MI |
Absolutely would recommend Dr. Gindzin to anyone I come across! I believe that Word of mouth is the best advertising there is! That's how I came across Dr. Gindzin! I was telling someone who lives in my building about the problem I was having after catarack surgery! He recommended that I see Dr. Gindzin and that he had super results by seeing Dr. Gindzin! So, I did make an appointment and found Dr. Gindzin to be a fantastic eye dr.
in Richland , MI |
I have recommended Dr. Gindzen to friends having eye issues, numerous times. He is the best. He has been as concerned about my recovery as my family and as enthusiastic about the success as I have. It really shows he cares and it's personal.
in Grand Haven, MI |
I love Dr. Gindzin. I have been seeing him for over 5 years now. When I had my detached retinas, both eyes at the same time, he was very knowledgable and very kind. He showed a lot of compassion for my situation. Before meeting Dr. Gindzin I had worked with several doctors at other practices who were not nearly as good and had no bedside manner. He always takes the time to answer questions, he does not rush, he always talks to my wife during the appointment and is a very skilled surgeon..
in Grand Rapids, mi |
No retinologist can compare to Dr. Gidzen. Fully explains in detail what the problem is and how it will be resolved...
in Grand Rapids, MI |
Dr. Gindzin is the best eye doctor I've ever been to. He's competent and professional and he cares. He doesn't take long to see what he needs to, but he doesn't rush. He's always willing to answer questions and will take the time with you that you need. He explains diagnoses in ways you can understand. He is highly respected and well liked. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a retinologist.
in Wyoming, MI |
Dr. Gindzin is excellent with his skills and customer service. I highly recommend him. You feel well taken care of, and that whatever is being done, you're in capable hands.
in Saranac MI |
I see Dr. Gindzin every 5 months and have for 5 ish years but no matter how many times I see him, he always explains (to my satisfaction) what ever question I ask. He won't leave the exam room until I am are satisfied with treatment/questions. I love his "bedside manner" . He is passionate about giving my eyes the best care possible.
in Grand Rapids mi |
Great like always.
in Caledonia |
The best ever!
in Jenison , MI |
I have utmost respect and confidence in Dr Gindzin. He explained everything so it could be understood. As I was sent to him on an emergency due to blood in my eye he saw me on short notice and did laser surgery at the same day and seemed genuine in my medical problems, advising if symptoms reappeared to immediately call and come in. I have nothing but esteem appreciation for Dr Gindzin and the staff.

in Kalamazoo, MI |
The excellence of Dr. Gindzin's care and GRO far surpasses any other offices I've encountered in my life. I had an emergency situation with my retinas on more than one occasion, and they got me right in. I simply will not trust my retinas to anyone else except Dr. Gindzin. I recommend him to every friend or acquaintance who has diabetes and my friends as well in case they ever have retina issues.

I would NEVER go to a different Dr. Dr. Gindzin saved most of my eyesight when I was facing complete blindness! His "bedside manner" is absolutely incredible! He not only makes me feel welcomed but also whom ever is with me, EVERY time. I would wait all day for him if he's running late. He is very kind & cares about me as a person, not just a patient. He is the best!

Dr. Gindzin saved my vision back in 2004, and continues to monitor my condition. He is a wonderful doctor and I completely trust him. He and his staff are always friendly and efficient, he is a specialist, so there are days that the wait is a little longer, but over the years they have streamlined the process, and now the visits are way faster. I would highly recommend him.
