Verified Patient Reviews
The best! I was running behind today (weather) but Dr. Slusky was kind and saw me and my son right away. She gave great tips like take your contacts after work to rest your eyes and so on. She carries stylish frames. Highly recommended.
So efficient, helpful, friendly and professional. Definitely keeping her as my optometrist, and definitely recommending her.
I have been seeing Dr. Slusky for a few years now, she is so professional and knowledgeable. She also took great care of a friend that I recommended her to!
Dr. Slusky is so friendly and really wants to make sure you leave her office with the best eyesight possible. Very spacious and clean space, extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff, and high end tech. Definitely recommend! Keep in mind, some of the products may be on the pricey side, but they work with you to find the best route for your needs.
I drive from northwest Indiana everybody makes you feel comfortable. I am just disappointed this office is so far. I am glad I decided to take a chance. In the past I have found it difficult to find a great doctor I felt comfortable with, if I liked the doc the staff wasn't as warm or visa versa. Joanna and all her staff I have dealt with have been exceptional :) I would not hesitate to recommend although the drive from where I am driving from they may not want to do..
I would recommend Dr. Slusky to anyone. You felt welcome from the minute you walk in through the door from her staff. Dr. Slusky was very thorough with the exam and made you feel comfortable. Thank you and I can't wait for my new glasses to arrive.
Dr. Slusky is great, I've been going to her practice for the past 3 years. She is incredibly professional, and gives a thorough explanation on what she is doing. Her staff is also very knowledgeable of the products (Glasses, contacts, etc).
Great experience. Thorough explanations, topnotch Doctor and support staff.
Extremely expensive! !!!#
I had a few concerns initially and Dr. Slusky answered all of my questions and gave me a referral for a follow-up with no issue. I'm glad I was able to fill in the gap between her and the last time I had an eye exam. Since I work so often with computers, she gave amazing suggestions for how to take care of my eyes and even get better sleep. All of her staff from the receptionist to the eyewear consultants were SO friendly and professional. I highly recommend her and her team!
I was assisted immediately and the front desk person was very quick and friendly. Dr. Slusky was nice and very smart for sure. However, the optometry salespeople were a bit pushy and I wish that they were more sincere.
Dr Slusky was very thorough. She took extra time during my eye exam and never did I feel she was in a rush. She was very nice and I would definately recommend her.
Hilarious. Joanna gave me a good ribbing about not wearing my glasses and was a great doctor. Very happy to have contacts!
Great visit. Greeted immediately. Everyone in the staff was friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend!
Everyone was really nice! Everyone was knowledgeable and even helped find glasses that I love!
Very Professional and knowledgable.
Everything was great. Very professional, highly recommend
Dr. Slusky was incredibly helpful. She has so much expertise and was able to provide me with more explanations and tips regarding my different options than I've had before. So very glad to have found her!
Boutique is right! Joanna really took the time to make the appointment as personal as possible, yet very professional at the same time. When it came time to pick out glasses it was just the same, the girls they have are very consultative. I would recommend to everyone!
Dr. Slusky and her receptionist were great as always! The "Eyewear Consultant" was a bit abrasive and got quite angry when I wouldn't immediately purchase contacts or new lenses through her.
She is very personable and attentive! She saw me right away and was very professional in her work.
Love working with Joanna : ) She is the best and great at explaining everything that is going on to a dummy like me.. ; )
I've seen various numbers of optometrists, but Dr. Joanna Slusky was by far the best! She was very informative about the different contact brands and caring about my concerns! I highly recommend her!
Dr. Slusky is extremely passionate and professional! Would highly recommend her!
Very professional and respectful. And, fast. Exam and ordering new prescription took less than 45 minutes.
I feel like everyone's demeanor in the office changed for the worse when I realized I could not afford the higher priced contact lenses Dr Slusky recommended. I felt awkward enough having to tell her I needed to switch back on account of pricing, so it just made things even worse to feel like I was being judged for that.
Joanna was great. Very friendly and thorough and made you feel comfortable in her presence. I unfortunately will not be returning due to my experience with the rest of the staff. Even after I told the tech that I would not be purchasing glasses from their store, she pushed me into trying on several pairs. She started putting random glasses and sunglasses on me and then just assumed I was going to purchase them. She seemed shocked and annoyed when I asked for my prescription so that I could look elsewhere. I also noticed that my paperwork which included my social security number and health history had been left out and unattended in the middle of the store.
Second time with her - so great, incredible bedside manner. Everyone in the office is so nice.
Very professional and straight forward.
She's very professional and explained things to me that I've never had an eye doctor explain to me, which I really appreciated!
Truly a boutique experience, as the name suggests. For my first time getting eyewear, I was impressed with the personal approach of the experience.
It was nice! Very straight forward and professional. Her staff is incredibly accommodating as well, they really work with you.
Great! She set me up with an updated perscription that was so much better than the last. I can see again! She is friendly, effiecient and clearly knows what she is talking about. Highly recommend.
Great visit, thanks doc!
I've been a patient/customer of Halsted Eye Boutique for at least 4 years now and I highly recommend them. Doctor Slusky is very thorough in her examinations. The rest of the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Wouldn't go any other place in Chicago.
Dr. Slusky was incredible. Quick, friendly, accommodating, professional, and personable. This was my first eye appointment since I was 13, so she did a great job of making me comfortable and educating me throughout the process. Couldn't recommend anyone more!
Very nice, great service
Very nice and helpful. Didn't feel like an appointment
Dr. Slusky was great! She is professional and attentive, and offers many vision solutions for eye health. First time visiting her (after 20 years visiting the same eye doctor) and will definitely be back!
She was very informative and help me make a better decision when it came to the type of contacts I selected.
She is an amazing doctor that cares about her patients! She is thorough and takes her time. After visiting her once she showed me how to use contacts, other Dr.'s never had the patience or time to help me. Her entire staff is amazing too.
Great all around service.
She is an amazing doctor! Even when I moved to the south loop I kept her as my eye doctor. Also the glasses options they have at the office are great. The staff was super patient in helping me pick out a pair.
I really enjoyed my experience at Dr. Slusky's office. She made sure I understood what she was talking about and even got me to switch over to daily contacts after having worn 2-weekers for 10 years! Another thing I should mention is that when I ordered my annual supply of contacts they were unfortunately stolen from my front stoop. Rita, the front desk manager, swooped in and saved the day and reordered the entire order and had it sent to the office for me to pick up. They are wonderful!
I hadnt been to an eye appt in many many years. I certainly expected to HAVE to get contacts and/or glasses. Luckily my eyesight was not bad at all and ahe gave me the 'option' to get glasses. Very nice and honest doc. We all look for honesty in healthcare....Dr Slusky is awesome!
Dr. Slusky is great. She is very thorough with her exam, and she recommends the right product for your eyes if you have any problems with your lenses. She definitely knows her stuff. And the staff there couldn't be any more accommodating and nicer... very sweet people who are on the ball. Very happy I found this place!
very professional. would definitely recommend her.
Dr. Slusky is always on time and extremely professional. She has a gentle way about her while giving a detailed yet understandable explanation of everything that goes on. I would highly recommend her.
Super happy with my visit to Dr. Joanna Slusky. Was able to get an appointment quickly, the whole practice was very accommodating, me changing my appointment same day for a later time. She explained my problem to me in simple way that i could understand. Found a perfect pair of daily contacts for me. and a pair of glasses. I highly recommend Dr. Slusky!
Very knowledgeable and approachable.
My visit with Dr. Slusky was as pleasant as it could have been. I have a terrible stye, and she saw me immediately after finishing the initial paperwork. She was thorough, helpful, and very personable. Once I'm healed, I will definitely go back for some new glasses!
Dr. Slusky was very professional and she gave me a more thorough eye exam than I have had in years. She gave advice and explained things I knew to be happening but didn't know why. I can't recommend her highly enough - she will be my go-to eye doctor from now on.
The service is perfect, especially the front desk lady, she try her best to find my medical information, I appreciate her!
Extremely positive experience. Everyone in the office was very friendly and quick to answer any questions. I was seen to as soon as I arrived and did not have to wait for anything. Insurance benefits were well-explained, and I appreciated being told the tradeoffs within my policy. It's a no-brainer that Dr. Slusky will be my go-to optometrist from now on.
A thorough exam, great specs, and a friendly staff
Dr. Slusky is very kind, cool, & professional! I love going to see her…she is always up to date with new styles, & her team is always there to help. I highly recommend.
She is awesome! Dr. Slusky and her staff will help you in any way possible. Recommended to all of my friends if they need a great person and doctor to help them with any eye health issues.
I was interested in the boutique experience and got-it! Not only with fashionable eyewear but received sound-professional eyecare; muti-lingual staff a ++ Thank you!
Wonderful office and fantastic staff! Joanna really takes time with you and goes in depth with what is going on with your eyes! Very impressed and will be sticking her from here on out.
Very good with kids! She took the time to explain everything to them in an interesting manner. Great selection of eyewear as well.
Wasnt covered under insurance. Was told it would be $60. Turned out to be $200 for a sty!
Very friendly and personal treatment, Dr. Slusky remembered me from my annual appointment the previous year, which left a really positive impression right from the start. The rest of the staff is always very nice and helpful as well. Although I moved away from the neighborhood, I will continue to come here for my exams.
Doctor, as well as staff, 100% professional, answering questions with thought, insight, patience and even elaboration when needed, demonstrating the knowledge and sensitivity which can only come, in part, from extensive patient exposure and experience. Truly, as a team they take you from "dilation to elation" (almost anyway) by making the "Office visit" effortless, seamless, surprisingly productive, even quite pleasant!
She was great and very friendly but I'm not sure the exam was as thorough as it could have been and it went really quickly.
She was great!!
Excellent! Totally recommend!
Dr. Slusky is informative, thorough, and an excellent doctor. I have Sjogren's Syndrome and feel comfortable and confident with monitoring my disease under the supervision of Dr. Slusky. She was kind and put me at ease when inserting my punctal plugs. I am very pleased with her and will continue to use her as my optometrist.
Very professional, took time to explain additional challenges with my vision. I've recommended several individuals after my visit and I'm going back next week.
The clinic is well maintained and the staff are very professional and explains the benefits. Dr. Slusky is very professional and knowledgeable and she takes her time to explain everything to her patients as well as the course of treatment. Overall, very good experience!
Joanna is awesome! I'd recommend her to all family and friends. As a healthcare provider myself - I know the demands of healthcare today. She was meant for her profession! Very caring and very thorough. She clearly has a passion for what she does! Thanks Joanna!
Dr. Slusky, was very thorough and had a great bedside manner. She explained everything she was doing. Also the staff were wonderful! They were helpful going over my insurance benefits and choosing frames and contacts.
Dr. Slusky is awesome. Super personable, and a great optometrist. I recommend her highly.
Dr. Joannna is one of the best Optometrists' I have encountered during my long experience with eye glasses. I first brought my daughter for a pediatric exam, and was amazed by her wealth of knowledge, and patient care. I decided to make an appointment for my own check-up, and she was as pleasant and informative, as the first time we met. She is a GEM!!!!
Staff was efficient and helpful and Dr. Slusky is wonderful. In and out in less than an hour.
This was a fantastic visit. Joanna seemed extremely knowledgeable and I was beyond comfortable in the office. I would highly recommend her to my friends and family... or anyone!
Found Dr. Slusky on Zoc Doc, she was very helpful and knowledgeable.
Dr. Joanna Slusky is the God send eye doc. In my twenty years of seeing eye docs of the sorts, Dr. Slusky is head and shoulders above the previous doctors. Thank you Slusky Team for being my family new OD.
Very kind doctor and assistants, very clean office, quick and easy. Thanks!
Haven't not been to the eye doctor since being a young child, I was a little apprehensive. They explained everything to me and took good care of me. The eyeglasses they had for sale in there are expensive though.
Wonderful doctor! She is so knowledgable and open!
Excellent and very professional. Only delay in being seen was standard paperwork because it was first visit.
Knowledgeable, nice helpful. The location is so clean and organized and relaxing.
Excellent. Very professional team.
Dr. Slusky was great. She was very up front and thorough with her examination, which I greatly appreciated.
She was amazing!
Great appointment. Friendly staff. Most enjoyable/informative eye exam I've ever had. Would definitely recommend Dr. Slusky's office
Dr. Slusky made my visit as comfortable and informative as possible. She clearly knows what she's doing, and makes an effort to tailor her approach to each patient. Her assistants and staff are fantastic, and took the time to discuss insurance options and showed me how to use contacts (EEK!) I've found my go to eye doc in Chicago!
They do a good job. They are nice and efficient. I would go there again.
Very professional and friendly, clearly knows her craft. Staff was also friendly and helpful. Would recommend to others in need of a new optometrist.
Dr. Slusky is excellent. She is very knowledgable, thorough and friendly. Her staff is also very nice and helpful. Wonderful experience overall!
My experience was excellent with Joanna! She is extremely nice and very knowledgeable. The entire staff treated me well, and were excellent in both the exam and choosing the right glasses and contacts for me. I normally don't enjoy any doctors visits of any sort, but they made the experience joyful. I would highly recommend this office to anyone looking for an eye doctor.
Unbelievable experience! Dr. Slusky was extremely helpful in having me understand everything that went on during the exam. I would highly recommend her to everyone. Bonus: very nice and beautiful
Very nice visit and she was very informative and helpful throughout the visit. Her staff was also very friendly and helpful.
Friendly, detail-oriented. Caught an issue that hasn't been raised in previous eye check-ups. Thanks!
She is fabulous! This is my first time ever needing glasses and she was patient and walked me through the entire thing. So happy I found her.
Very professional, polite and informative. I highly recommend!
It was a wonderful appointment, she asked about all of the right questions as well (e.g, family history and hobbies/habits) to pinpoint what is going on with my eyes and what my future may hold also.
Dr. Slusky was great! Her staff is extremely knowledgeable and willing to help however they can - even when it came to figuring out issues with my insurance. Dr. Slusky explained everything to me and really took her time to chat with me about my eye health. She has become my go-to eye doctor for sure!
Dr. Slusky was courteous, professional, and friendly. I recommend her unreservedly to those in need of eye care.
Extremely nice, very thorough, and informative during visits.
Very nice and thorough; not pushy at all. Great experience
Very knowledgeable and professional. Comfortable and trendy office.
She was very nice. Did a thorough exam and then helped get me the contacts and glasses that best fit me. I will definitely be back to her.
Amazing, great customer service
This was a great appointment. I had an eye infection. But instead of just handing me a script for antibiotics and sending me out the door, Dr. Slusky took the time to discuss my lifestyle, other meds etc.. to find the underlying reason I had gotten the infection in the first place. It was the best visit I can remember having with any optometrist and I will definitely be staying with her practice.
VERY PROFESSIONAL AND VERY CARING TO OUR SITUATION
One word AMAZING! Dr. Joanna Slusky is efficient, informative and personable. Quite frankly wish I could visit more. Highly recommend and already have!
Incredibly nice, professional, and offered several courses of action without being pushy.
She was wonderful with my 5 year old. I highly recommend her for children.
Very nice and professional.
The entire visit was wonderful. Very beautiful office, parking was very simple & Dr. Slusky was one of the best eye doctors I have ever met. Very thoughtful & caring with my son. I also found her to be very thorough & informative. She will definitely be our regular eye Dr. from now on for the entire family.
She is the best Optometrist I ever met with. I don't have enough words to tell you how much I bragged about Dr. Joanna Slusky. Let's just be cheesy and blunt. She is " The Bomb". I mean I left feeling like my best friend did my eye exam. She is so graceful and kind. Her profession is blessed to have such class in it's prestigious field.
Dr. Slusky and her staff are fantastic! They were on time and took their time with my needs. They are also very friendly!
Great bedside manner, very personable, not aggressive like some doctors can be. I will definitely go back. Her staff was very friendly. Dr Slusky takes her time with each patient - I did not feel rushed or have to wait at all.
Excellent. She was great. Explained everything. Very Through. Staff was very helpful.
I've never had someone explain so much to me about my eyes. I really appreciated all the information. Joanna was very friendly and would recommend her to anyone. The tech was also very helpful and informative when picking out glasses and determing the best option for me. Will definitely be returning to Halsted Eye Boutique.
It was very pleasant. I didn't have to wait at all and they even helped me pick out glasses.
My daughter and I had a very welcoming visit with dr Slusky she was very good at her profession. I will be taking my family back there in the near furture .
Amazing! she and her staff are so nice and helpful
Dr. Slusky was very thorough with her exam. I am very happy, and plan to return again. Overall, great experience!
Great experience all around
This was the most amazing eye doctor appointment! She even sat down with me after and helped me pick out my new glasses!
Great Doctor!! I definitely recommend this doctor to anyone.
Fantastic! So nice, caring, great options for contacts and frames. I felt very good about my eye exam.
Highly recommend. Professional and personable Dr. and Staff
Dr. Joanna Slusky was exactly what I was looking for in an eye doctor--Smart, professional and personable. She took the time to go over all my questions and different options of both contacts and glasses. I never felt rushed or silly for asking a question and she made me feel like she had all the time in the world for me. As a patient, this is the most important and the hardest to find among any medical professional. For someone who has had a new eye doctor each year since moving to Chicago 5yrs ago, it's a relief to know I have finally found my eye doctor!
I thought it was a very pleasant experience.
I like say thanks she. WAs Very good I be recomend
Very polite and professional. Friendlier than other optometrists I've had before.
What a pleasure
The visit was excellent. Very profesinal staff. I rcommended it 100%
Dr. Slusky was so nice. She spent her time with me and made sure to explain everything she was doing. I could tell that she really cared about me as a patient and wanted to make sure that I left with all my questions answered, with a prescription I was comfortable with, and with glasses that looked good! I would definitely recommend her!
Both Dr. Joanna Slusky and Dr. Michael Slusky are AWESOME. I've been going to them for nearly 4 years and I have nothing but amazing things to say about them. I've seen them for regular eye checkups and emergency appointments -- in which they were quick and eager to help, they even made personal phone calls to follow up on my emergency treatment. They are the perfect balance of professional and personal. They truly care about their patients. Lastly, I will say the office staff is just as friendly and professional. Thank You Halsted Eye Boutique!
SHe was very knowledgeable and listened!
I really enjoyed the visit more than I would usually enjoy an eye dr appt! She was very informative and I like the new contacts!
Very nice and very knowledgeable. I would say that the only downside is that I felt that the eyeglass recommendations were more upgraded than I needed since I rarely wear them, and I was confused as to whether I could go with a less expensive type.
My children were seen right away and the office was very easy to find. I would definately go back for our vision needs in the future.
I absolutely loved her and the staff. They were professional, caring, and very accommodating. They went above and beyond to make sure my son was comfortable and it was an enjoyable experience. The staff smiled the entire hour and a half visit, even when my son tried on it seemed like every pair of glasses in the store, the associate never once seemed irritated. To a mom that is priceless. Thank you Dr. Slusky and staff.
absolutely wonderful. learned more about my eyes in one hour than i knew my entire life.
She is a very down to earth person, who loves her job and care about the needs of her clients. She is very warm and explains everything step by step. And is more than happy to answer any question you may have.
I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Slusky. She seems to genuinely care about my well being and is open to any and all questions. She is very warm and welcoming.

Excellent doctor and up to date to latest technology. A example as a great human carrying for other humans. We need more doctors as doctor J.Slusky OD. She is well organized and many doctors should follow her example and of course she deserve a great recommendation and a successful practice.
Dr. Joanna Slusky was very thorough with her examination and made sure I understood all that was being discussed.
She was wonderful, the staff was great as well!!!!
Very informative and professional
terrible, very rude
Very efficient and informative.
I THOUGHT BOTH DR. SLUSKY AND HER ASSISTANT CYNTHIA WERE VERY NICE FRIENDLY CARING AND PROFESSIONAL, I FELT SO ATEASE AND THE COMFORT OF HOME, I LOVED MY VISIT....
I thought she was a great dr. she made me feel comfortable and well taken care of, And she was able to answer all my questions about my current eye problem. Her assistant is really nice as well.
Very knowledgeable and thorough, excellent customer service. I would highly recommend this doctor/business for a "boutique" experience (as the name implies!) and high quality frames/products. Wasn't able to buy my glasses here (were a little to out of my price range so I shopped around for the best frames at the best price), but Dr. Slusky is running a very professional operation.
Everyone in this office was very nice, respectful,friendly,and helpful.
She was very personable and friendly. She listened to me and my concerns, and was incredibly patient.
extremely competent and very friendly. very concerned about my physical disability with getting around as i am in a wheelchair. Judy K.

She was very kind and courtious and was very concerned about the health of my eyes.
LOVE this Dr! She is super nice! Her assistants was very nice too! My daughter and I just had our glasses. Very informative and went out of there way to help my daughter and I.
Friendly, outgoing and professional. took the time to come back to express concern about my contact wear. The place itself looked just like its name "Boutique" Nice. The staff was very friendly... would definetly recommend!
Dr. Slusky is extremely efficient and explains her actions along the way so you understand what's happening and why. Everyone in the office is super helpful and kind. I highly recommend Dr.S!
Very kind and informative, she answered any questions we had and explained everything she was doing and why. I would refer her as well as her office staff with the highest of praise to anyone looking for an optometrist.
She was VERY polite and kind! The other staff was also very polite, I felt good when I left.
I was really impressed with this dr and her staff. Very nice office too.
