Patient Testimonials

“Top notch eye doctor in our community. Has excellent staff and is well known for great surgical skills. He operated on my parents and did a great job. Cannot speak highly enough of this man!”

“Dr. Balok put a new lens in both my eyes after cataract surgery. I now have excellent vision in both of my eyes and I couldn’t be happier with my results. I would highly recommend him!! Everyone in the office is so nice and professional.”

“My cataract experience on March 2nd with Dr. Balok(East China office/RDH) is a positive one in all respects. I was at 20/20 at one week after my surgery. Awesome!! His knowledge and ability along with his support staff are top notch. All questions were received and answered pleasantly and professionally. I highly recommend!”

“I wore bi-focal glasses for 40 years and he took care of my astigmatism and cataracts and I am now glasses free! Very professional and did what he told me he could do–no more glasses.”

“I’ve been Dr. Balok’s patient for many years. I am convinced Dr. Balok can help preserve my sight so I may continue to lead a healthy and productive vision life. As a board-certified ophthalmologist, he has an extensive educational background and his substantial credentials are most impressive. Dr. Balok also surrounds himself with an excellent team of experts. His office staff and medical assistants are beyond compare. However, the quality I admire most is the confidence he brings to the examining room and the operating arena. I have experienced both office visits and surgical situations, and I know personally that when a patient exclaims”I can see!” Dr. Balok’s joy is obvious. I have recommended Dr. Balok to friends and family in the past, and will continue to do so because I believe in his ability and integrity.”– Jackie S. A.

“Dr. Balok did cataract surgery on both of my eyes. I have worn glasses since I was very young because of my high astigmatism. When he did the surgery, he used a special lens implant to correct for astigmatism. For the first time in my life, I can get up in the morning and not have to find my glasses before I get out of bed. My whole experience through the process was very satisfying. He and his staff are very friendly and helpful.”– Thomas M.

“I am very happy with my vision after cataract surgery with Dr. Balok. I can see far away without any glasses. I haven’t been able to do that for over 40 years. I felt very comfortable every step of the way because he and his staff are extremely nice and knowledgeable.” – Kenneth M.

“Everyone at the Riverside eye clinic in Fort Gratiot made my cataract surgery a pleasant experience. Every one I have talked to has nothing but good things to say about Dr. Balok and his entire staff. Most of the staff has been there several years and are very friendly and professional.”– Jack R.

“I would like to thank Dr. E. Michael Balok, MD at Riverside Eye Center, East China, Michigan for the outstanding results of my cataract surgery. I would like to compliment the entire staff for making my cataract surgery a positive experience. I have to say that every staff member that I had interactions with were informative, courteous, friendly and treated me with the utmost respect and professionalism. The area where the surgery was performed, Port Huron Hospital, had the appearance of being run by a truly professional group. By the actions of the entire surgical team, you could tell they were honestly concerned about my well being. It is not uncommon for any individual to be at least a little nervous when having any surgical procedure performed. However, the entire team made the procedure seem so simple by explaining all the steps of the surgery. More importantly, after the procedure was completed they made a special effect to explain the proper actions that I needed to follow before I was allowed to go home. Afterwards, at Riverside Eye Center, I especially like how cheerfully and professionally I was treated by the office staff for my after-surgery check-up. Not only were the results great, but the care and attention I received were excellent. I no longer need glasses because my eyesight is 20/20 for the first time in my life. You and your entire staff are true “ HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS. ps. When it comes time to have Cataract Surgery performed, I would definitely contact Dr. Balok, MD and all the STAFF PROFESSIONALS at Riverside Eye Center, P.C.”– Joseph R.
