Felt very safe. Care was Excellent!
The care and professionalism was outstanding. The Tech was very personable and efficient. The person that took my Images took the time to explain what he was doing before, during, and after each eye. It was obvious to me he was very good at his responsibilities. As for the doctor, he was very appreciative my needs and listened carefully to my questions as well as my answers to his questions. He took the time to make sure I understood his answers and observations. All the staff were great to Interact with. I look forward to my next visit. Thank you.
The resident ophthalmologist I saw at froedtert was very thorough and explained my condition in a thoughtful and concise manner. The ophthalmologist that was specializing in retinal care was excellent I felt confident in his recommendations and in his care. He was very patient and gave me some time to regain my composure several times. He even ran outside into the parking lot to bring me my coat which I had forgotten. What dr does that!
My first visit. Everything was perfect! So glad I was referred to the eye institute.
Great doctor and staff. Highly recommend to me and would highly recommend to others. Thanks for the wonderful care at Froedtert!
Everyone was very friendly and informative. I appreciate it when I receive information and explanations, which was done at every step. The office was very relaxing and functioned well as a whole. My compliments and appreciation!

A very pleasant and stress free feeling
I enjoyed my visit the provider and staff were polite and courteous. My provider was informative and throughly explain his assessment and treatment plan. I will see him again and let my eye doctor know what a great job him and his staff did. Keep up the good work.
Dr. Wirostko is the best! He's very knowledgeable, thorough, and caring. I wouldn't want to receive care from any other retina specialist.

Excellent care
Very smooth and fast process from start to finish. Dr Wirostko & the techs I see are personable. The only negative: the scheduling staff at the elevators are not very welcoming:(
I was very happy how everything was checking in checking out explanations Of procedures .
Outstanding service!
Dr. Wirostko is very professional and explained everything to me. Where I could understand you, should have more doctors like him
The nursing assistant asked appropriate questions and entered them into the EPIC system. Dr. Wirostko fit me into his already scheduled appointments, as my wife was there for an eye procedure. This saved me another visit. He took the appropriate amount of time with me and performed a thorough examination. This was a very positive experience and the courtesy shown both my wife and me was greatly appreciated.
Professional, caring and expert care
The Doctor is very kind and caring and THOROUGH?
Dr. Wirotsko was excellent at verbalizing the issue in a way I could understand, informed me that what I was going through was to be expected and explained why he was prescribing the medication he was.
1st Class thanks
Was able to get me in the same day. Super knowledgeable! Couldn't have asked for a better doctor!
Excellent organization of clinic.
This appointment was an emergency situation. I was referred to the Eye Institute by my doctor. I was fit into their busy schedule to be seen that same morning and scheduled for surgery the next day. Even though I was not an expected patient that day, everyone treated me with concern and didn't make me feel like I was putting them out.
Excellent provider, every detail appreciated.
Everyone was very caring and professional.
