"Loved the environment and the people. Dr. SHAH WAS AWESOME! I wish I had found them years ago."
"All the staff working here was great. We ended up stepping my lens strength down because I thought my last eye doctor got it wrong. Dr. Christine is a good listener."
"Dr. Tepper took me of glaucoma meds that my previous doctor prescribed to me. He effectively controlled my eye pressure with meds that were much less caustic and much less expensive. Dr. Tepper is very through and attentive. He is also just a sincerely good person. Highly recommend him."
"So many wonderful things to say about the staff and my experiences with the Wicker Park Eye Center. I had a pretty serious eye infection onset very quickly. Found myself bouncing between emergency rooms and doctors scratching their heads. Within just a couple days, what started out as a little redness ended up evolving into a growing irritation. Maybe just an eye lash under the hood, maybe a small inconvenient scratch. Then I swelled up like a bee planted a stinger in my eyelid. A slow but constant stream of reddish puss began draining down my face. Lost the ability to open the right eye completely, and to see anything except vague blurry colors, if I gingerly and painfully pried the eye to status. Started to feel like other eye was beginning to develop similar symptoms. I was in pain. It was scary and dark. Then I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Shah and it changed the course of everything. The staff was gentle and their bedside manor genuine. They were calm, caring, and confident professionals. After a couple days of antibiotics and steroids, Dr. Shaw had me pain free and counting my blessings. It took a couple treatments, but I can see smiling faces again. My own included. I couldn’t be happier. Thank you Wicker Park Eye Center. You are making a difference. You are why people want to go into medical care to truly help others."
