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 highly recommend him.
