Grand Rapids Doctors Awards: 10 Best Dentists, Pediatricians, OBGYNs + More

Grand Rapids doctors FCP awards girl and doc laughing

Favorite Grand Rapids Doctors and Health Care Professionals – 2022

I’m a Grand Rapids transplant and when I was pregnant with my first child, I had no idea how to find any Grand Rapids doctors, not to mention a great OB/GYN or pediatrician!

Thankfully, my husband’s childhood doc was still in practice, so we figured that one out. But my OB/GYN was a shot in the dark. It worked out, but only because I have a “roll with it” personality.

Ideally, it’s really nice to get intel from people who know.

That’s why we polled people across West Michigan to find the area’s best dentists, eye doctors and therapists. Even though I’ve still got that “roll with it” personality, I also want my kids to be in the smartest, most compassionate hands possible.

If you are looking for Grand Rapids doctors or dentists, where do you, start?

You start here! Read on to find your new favorite healthcare provider!
