“Dr. Grice is an outstanding physician. I was referred to her when my doctor couldn’t cure my staph infection in my eyes. I’d had this infection for 9 months. Dr. Grice saved my eyes!
She is compassionate and at the same time quite professional. Also, she listen to her patients. The staff is so nice and welcoming. I am so glad is she is my ophthalmologist.” – Katherine N.

“Outstanding Corneal specialist. She did a corneal transplant on my wife, the case proved very challenging. Throughout, she was available, knowledgeable, professional and warmly engaged, never giving up until vision improved. The staff was likewise supportive, efficient and highly professional.
As a ENT surgeon myself, I am extremely grateful and impressed by her professional engagement and technical experience. She is highly qualified and recommended.” – Dov R.
