Patients Say:

“Our kids love Dr. Mantia! We have had an excellent experience with everyone in the office. Dr. Mantia is extremely thorough and knowledgeable. I have never had a problem scheduling appointments, and his office returns phone calls very promptly. His staff is always helpful and friendly. We drive to the office from Rockford…we tried another office after we moved and then transferred right back. I would never take my kids anywhere else!”

“We have been with Dr. Mantia since our first child was a newborn. He is now almost fourteen and has four younger siblings who all come to Grandville Pediatrics. We have had ONLY ABSOLUTELY EXCEPTIONAL experiences! Dr. Mantia, his partners, and staff are friendly/welcoming, consistently show respect our family’s values/thoughts, educate us on all treatment and developmental issues, answer questions and make referrals in a timely, thorough manner. Our children feel comfortable here and trust the doctors and their staff. Grandville Pediatrics is well worth the nearly hour long drive we choose to make….we very much appreciate their exceptional care of our children.”

    Dr. Tiffany Letts at Metro Health Wyoming (44th St). I’m picky and went to 2 other docs before finding her and I’m so glad we did!

    Dr Michael Marcotte in Kentwood is wonderful. Was part of a group practice and grew with so many patients he made his own office. His wife runs the front desk. They’re very welcoming and helpful. I had him as a child and very happy to now bring my child there.
