I am grateful to the staff of Michigan Glaucoma Specialists. They were so kind to me while I was seeking treatment for my glaucoma. They always greeted me with a smile and the scheduling was always right on time. Despite having a busy practice, I'm almost always able to schedule an appointment within a few days of my calling and receive a response to email or phone questions often the same day. I've spent much time consulting with doctors regarding my condition, and I'm so glad that I finally found a team as knowledgeable, accommodating and concerned as this practice.
