Specialties

Dr. Richard D Grutzmacher has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

I had LASIK with Dr. Grutzmacher and see great! The staff was awesome both at the office and the surgery center. Dr. Grutzmacher has a great bedside manner! He took time to answer all my questions and made sure I understood all the risk - Not a day goes by that I don't thank God for this great vision!

Do NOT Let This Doctort Cut on Your Eyes

I went to see Dr. Grutzmacher for corrective vision surgery. I wanted the PRK procedure because of the issues with the flap on the cornea. The doctor strongly recommended Lasik. During the procedure he botched cutting the corneal flap. He sent me home with cut-up eyes and without corrected vision. Now, I must wear my eye glasses (no contacts) for at least three months and probably longer. I would not let this doctore cut my toe-nails
