" New to the area and chose Retina Specialists based on searches in my area. I chose Retina Specialists based on their Medical Staff experience and education, services available for my particular eye condition and location. I’ve seen Dr Westhouse and find him very professional and personable, competent at his discipline, especially in giving an almost painless intravitreal injection. The support staff are friendly, efficient and competent in their particular areas of practice. I feel very fortunate to have available this level of care near me.

" I had been seeing a retina specialist in the past, I have had multiple injections in my eyes which always included major bleeding in my eyes leaving me looking rather gruesome. I had injections in both of my eyes during this appointment and left being able to see almost as well as before the injections (less because of dilation) with minimal redness and no bleeding. That alone made me feel rather comfortable. The staff was friendly, helpful and willing to answer any questions I had. They made me feel welcome, comfortable and heard. This last bit is the most important to me. I was heard. I did not feel like I was being rushed and not listened to. I was able to express concerns, ask questions and given options. This appointment made me feel so much better about an ailment that has had me feeling stressed. I feel there is hope now. Thank you. "

" My doc, Scott Wearhouse, is very thorough and informative. But I believe he may be rushed, and pushed very much by so many patients. Support staff is great, pleasant, knowledgeable, helpful, but still Dr. W. seems under a lot of pressure to serve his patients, well, and with some speed. As people age more, there are more and more eye problems, so you may want to consider adding another specialist to your group of retinologists. Dr. W. has been very good in getting support for my receiving a more expensive eye medication shot, and I thoroughly thank him, and his expertise, to help keep my sight! Sincerely, Jennifer Parks "

 July 29, 2020

 July 17, 2020

" All of my visits have been extremely informative, comforting, expedient, and intriguing, or interesting. I am very confident in the results and outcome. Many times, when dealing with specialists, my experiences have been that they tend to have a “bedside manner” of satisfying their own need to know, obligations, or purposes and it takes a follow up appointment with my general practitioner to gain an understanding of exactly what the outcome or diagnosis was. That’s not the case with West Michigan. The doctor, I’m sorry but I forgot his name, was quite thorough in making sure that I understood everything that he was concerned about, looking for, and what his findings were. I wish other specialists that I’ve seen performed their jobs accordingly. Thank you very much!. "

 July 16, 2020

" I had a very good experience! Dr. Sutherland and the entire staff were courteous, informative, patient, and friendly. If I had to be picky and provide constructive feedback the only issue would be the long wait times. However, I take that as meaning the staff is giving every other patient the attention and time that I received, so I am okay with the wait if it means they are able to continue such a high level of individual patient care. Looking forward to next time. Thank you! "
