Dr. Yosef Gindzin of Grand Rapids Ophthalmology opened his office up on a Saturday so that he could give his patient a crucial eye injection and even carried her through the unplowed snow in the parking lot.
"My mom was in the hospital the last three days and had to miss her crucial, every four weeks eye injections to treat wet macular degeneration," Marie Havenga said. "If she goes longer than four weeks, her eyes can bleed and she can permanently lose her vision."
"To preserve her right eye, Dr. Yosef Gindzin of Grand Rapids Opthamology opened his office (on a Saturday) just so he could give my mom her injections. Because the parking lot isn't plowed on weekends, we couldn't get her wheelchair through the snow. Dr. Gindzin carried her. What an amazing and compassionate man. Because of him, my mom will be able to see the magic of Christmas."
