Though I wasn't alerted in advance that I would be examined by Dr. Kumar instead of Dr. Slusky, I was very happy with the treatment I received from Dr. Kumar.

Nice office and atmosphere with the goodies in the waiting room and bathroom. Dr. Slusky is very nice, thorough and felt I was in good hands. I felt afterwards being handed off to checkout, I was being forced to buy products I was told about during my visit.

I really liked the dr who conducted my visit. I thought she was great at assessing my needs and listened to my concerns. I will say that the frames here are pricey. I couldn’t believe how much! I ended up justtaking my prescription and ordering what I wanted online.

Best OD I've seen in a while. Comprehensive exam, great bedside manner and approaches eye care holistically - taught me a few things I would have never known! Seeing your OD should not be solely about a lens prescription!

I loved my appointment with Dr. Slusky. It was extremely informative and helpful. The wait was long (which I do believe it due to MLK day so a lot of people were scheduled so they might have been backed up) butbesides that, I highly recommend this Halsted Eye Boutique to anyone looking for a new eye doctor.

Everyone who worked with me was very polite. They were very informative and helped me understand every procedure we went through. I opted to get Optomap done instead of dialation which added an extra charge to my appointment. It was painlessand actually really cool to look at. I liked that after my appointment I didn't feel pressured to buy glasses and I was able to get my prescription easily. They also do not do the puff test which was a plus.

Dr. Slusky is very professional and personal. I've had various eye problems before finding Dr. Slusky. She listens to each of my complaints, comes up with a care plan, and involves me in the plan to help remedy my eye problems.She spends time with you and makes sure to answer questions you have. You can tell she loves what she does by her thoroughness. Her office staff is also great but they do come across a little "sales-pitchy".

I got the most accurate prescription I've had in my life. However, I still have a hard time recommending the office since the staff are pretty unprofessional. They are glorified salesman. And I'm reviewing now because I just recieved an emailfrom the doctor asking for donations for her 'dancing with the giordano stars' charity event. I think it's pretty unprofessional to use your patient list as a donor list.

Phenomenal doctor. She was very professional and personable. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She and her staff were very friendly and easy to talk to. Right when you walk in you’re greeted and her team makes you feel verywelcomed. During your appointment you won’t feel rushed at all and Dr. Slusky makes sure to answer all your questions and double checks after the appointment to make sure you are content. Overall, she was the absolute best and I’m look forward to coming here again.

I had a very thorough examination of my annual eye check-up at Dr. Joanna's clinic. She is very polite and patient and takes pain to explain the issue in much detail to her patient - this is certainly one of herquality that I liked the most during my visit. Apart from this, the location is also conveniently located that worked fine for me.

Dr Slusky will not just treat your condition or the symptoms of your condition, she will educate you. She will take time to talk to you in laymen's terms and help you understand everything. She is also a beauty and skincareexpert and helped me understand how some of the products I was using was exasperating my dry eye sydrome. I highly recommend her.

She was aaaamazing!!! Had no idea what to expect for eye exam because it has been a very long time. She was so easy going and explained everything to me in words I could understand. I would only recommend her fordoing anything eye related. Her staff was so accommodating even when I was trying on what felt like 500 pairs of glasses. Never had such a great experience, would and will recommend to everyone.
