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.
Very satisfied
I had procedures and tests done before seeing the doctor and I was very impressed by the kindness and professionalism of the technicians
The Provider was patient with me and treated me well.
Dr. Wirostko and everyone connected with him and my visit were outstanding. My situation was fast-tracked (appointment at 1:30 with surgery at 7:00) but was handled expertly from check-in to check-out and the follow-up visit.
I had 3 tests and then met the doctor. Didn't have to wait long for any of them. Very efficient use of time.
Always very good
I have confidence in DR. Wirostko and the staff.
My physician was excellent from the 1st visit and even added me on over his " lunch" time to get the repair of my retina done quickly. I could not have asked for better care. I'm now moving out of state & he referred me to a retinal specialist whom he trained @ MCW that I can follow up annually with. Much appreciated.
My doctor was fantastic!! Very nice, kind, and made everything easy to Understand. Would recommend him to anyone needing eye care !!
