Having tried multiple vision centers across West Michigan, this is the first where I truly felt cared for. Dr Keszei is compassionate, caring, and takes the time to fully explain what's going with my eyes. On top of that, the administrators are always ready and happy to help with any questions or concerns I might have. Honestly, I wish I could give them more stars.

Keszei vision care has the most caring, attentive and high quality doctor and staff a person could ever ask. I was brought here by chance after a trip to the ER. I was so fortunate to be in the hands of dr. Keszei. He has always shown such care and compassion for his patients, taking the time to answer questions and get you in fast in the event of an emergency. Their current procedures for keeping patients safe is the best I have seen anywhere. The staff are also always friendly on the phone and in person. Thank you Dr. Keszei for being there for you patients, I have seen ALOT of doctors in the past year and going to your office is always the best experience.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Keszei and his staff. I've been to the Kellogg Eye Center at the University of Michigan, the Mayo Clinic in Rochester...this doctor is fantastic. No waiting weeks or months for an appointment, not treated like an assembly line patient and a very up to date waiting room filled with nice things to enjoy if you have to wait. Dr. Keszei is very pleasant, thorough and takes his time when answering your questions. Very efficient as well, you won't be stuck there for a few hours either. Highly recommend him and his clinic. Go there...you won't be disappointed.

My mom recently had eye trauma from a fall. She has Medicaid/Medicare and unfortunately that means you are extremely limited on care provider choices and often receive subpar care. Dr. Keszei and staff treated her compassionately and with expertise. This is a provider I would choose even if I had the best insurance and was not forced into a very limited choice. Thank you for taking good care of my mom.

The receptionists are wonderful they're very organized. You get in and out very fast..and the Dr actually helped and seemed like he wanted to fix the problem, which he did. 10 out of 10, or 5 out of 5 I guess.

This was by far my best experience with an Opthalmology office. The Dr. and staff were friendly and professional. The testing was thorough, and Dr. Keszei was able to diagnose a problem I had been having that was missed by a different Dr. last year.

I see Dr Keszei because one of my medications can cause retinal issues and blindness after a while, and he is the best doc I've seen in a long time. He is very thorough with every patient he sees. I'm currently in a cast for an ankle injury and one of the staffers came out to open the door for me as the building isn't very handicap friendly.

I had a great experience even during Covid. No one else was in the office when I went in and the procedures that were done at check in made me even more appreciative of their response to keeping me safe. I received a thorough exam and new prescription.

Dr. Keszei has been a tremendous help with my eye condition. I had no idea working on a computer all day and having issues with blurriness could be an issue with my oil glands! This man is so intelligent and his staff is absolutely wonderful. Everyone in Kalamazoo/ Portage and southwest Michigan should make him their ophthalmologist! And even better, no referral necessary! I didn't have to go through a PCP to see him. I look forward to my next appointment at Keszei Vision Care!

I would highly recommend Dr. Keszei he removed my cataracts and implanted toric lens that corrected my astigmatism. I had wore glasses for 50 plus years, I now only wear reading glasses when I am on computer or reading. Dr. Keszei is very skilled and corrected my vision way beyond what I could have imagined and his staff are great, so thoughtful, kind and just all around wonderful they are a compliment to his office

I visited Dr. Keszei in his new office in Portage for an eye exam and questions about cataract surgery. I was glad that I made the appointment. He assured me that if he can provide a clear vision with lenses on my glasses at this time, I should not worry about cataract surgery. I am having new glasses made with the prescription he provided and look forward to clear vision without the need of surgery. I made an appointment for follow-up in a year. The whole experience provided a relief from the prospect of cataract surgery and the reassurance that I was in the hands of a very fine doctor. So, if I do need surgery, then the advice I receive will be the best for me.

Dr. Keszei did my first cater-ac in 2014. I was sad when I heard he was leaving. This year when my other eye needed cater-ac removal I was so excited to hear that he had opened a new office in portage. I can't recommend him highly enough. With my first eye, I was frightened of pain and all the usual thoughts that go along with any type of surgery but to my amazement........there was none!!!! My eye was great!!! This time, knowing exactly what to expect, there was no fear at all and once agai

"There are not enough adjectives to describe Dr Keszei and his staff. From the minute you enter his office you are greeted by friendly, considerate and kind staff. Whether in person or on the phone, the girls are professional, informed and always return a call if necessary in a timely fashion. Dr Keszei is amazing. Greets you with a handshake, a smile and asks how you are doing. He’s totally engaged in the visit, no feeling of being rushed, explains everything thoroughly and offers suggestions. He’s genuinely concerned with my health and care of my eyes. He performed cataract extraction on both eyes and was a very pleasant positive experience both times. I cannot say enough about Dr Keszei’s skill professionalism or his staff and recommend them to anyone and everyone in need of eye healthcare. The office/lobby/bathrooms are always very clean, smells fresh and very comfortable. P.S.: On a side note, even though Dr Keszei is a “rival school supporter “ I trust and have 100% confidence in his skills and professionalism and recommend he and his staff highly. But, keep the (ND cooties to yourself). Cannot wait until I am able to snatch a Butter Rum LifeSaver on the way out."

What is Vision Care 3.0?

   Many of the concepts of Vision Care 3.0 originate from Dr. Zubin Damania’s Health 3.0 Movement.  Since I started medical school in 1979, I have observed and been part of many of these changes.  My knowledge comes directly from being part of the medical establishment for the last 40 years.  No one is happy with our current medical system.  While I cannot personally change our system, I can practice in a manner that best serves our patients and reflects the Vision Care 3.0 movement. 

Health 1.0

   When I started my training, medicine was drastically different than it is now.  MRIs were brand new.  You might be able to see a lesion the size of a golf ball on MRI if you were lucky.  Ophthalmologists had just begun using intraocular lens implants, and phacoemulsification had not yet been invented.  Doctors were very personable and spent time making sure your problems were addressed and treated the best way current medical advances allowed.  They faced you when speaking, looked you in the eye, and treated you like family.  Office visits were usually billed at 3 levels, small, medium, and large, depending on the work.  There were no billing codes, computers, or EMRs.  Doctors billed what was called the “usual and customary charge.”  This was whatever the doctors said it was.  When advances in medicine occurred and results improved, doctors raised their fees with minimal restrictions.  As a pre-med student, I remember shadowing doctors on hospital rounds and listening to their conversations in the doctor’s lounge.  The logic was that if everyone got paid the full amount for a procedure, next time, charge 10% more and see what happens.  Fees escalated until the insurance companies put their collective foot down, leading to Health 2.0.

Health 2.0

   The insurance industry responded with a policy to make doctors “show your work” thorough evaluation and management codes.  This is an elaborate and complex system for justifying the doctor’s charges.  Unfortunately, over the years, it has occupied more and more physician time.  The bureaucracy has exploded, including managed care, E/M coding, CPT codesICD-10HIPPA, PQRS, HCAHPSMACRAMIPS, Press-Ganey, etc.  Doctors now spend about 50% of their time actually caring and treating patients and 50% tackling the bureaucracy to acquire a reimbursement.  Doctors responded by consolidating large “clinics” or “institutes,” abandoning small private practices.  Patients felt like they were on an assembly line.  The computer screens became the patient.  Instead of talking to a doctor face-to-face, patients got to look at the back of their heads while the doctors asked questions while typing away on the computer.  Patient complaints were addressed by providers and hospitals putting up signs about how compassionate and caring they were rather than actually addressing the problem.  Physicians became commodities and were no longer called doctors.  Instead, we became “providers.”  The greatest casualty of Health 2.0 is losing that distinctly human relationship with your physician that elevated medicine from a career to a calling.  We lost the heart and soul of medicine along the way.

Vision Care 3.0

   This is our effort to bring back what we believe is truly important in medicine.  While we at Keszei Vision Care cannot change the system, we can pledge to practice medicine at the highest level possible.  Rather than cluttering the website with claims of how we are experts or a world-class institution, we let our actions do the talking.  We strive to provide the best medical care possible with the latest technology, compassion, heart, and understanding.  Please give us a call to set up an exam and experience Vision Care 3.0 for yourself.  We would love to hear from you.
