I was really impressed by Dr. Ricketts. He was friendly, professional, and gave me helpful information about my eyes that no other OD or ophthalmologist has. The staff was very helpful in selecting frames. Free parking in Lincoln Park is a big bonus!

He gave excellent explanations in terms I could understand, and made me feel comfortable and calm about a problem with my eye. He described my treatment plan and course of action to heal my eye, and made me feel confident I would be back to normal soon! I would recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Ricketts was very knowledgeable and had great bedside manner. I felt as though I was actually being listened to instead of talking to a doctor that's not really interested in what you have to say about your own past experiences. In addition, he was thorough in the visit and explained every step, so I always felt confident and relaxed with what was going on. I would highly recommend Dr. Ricketts.

Wonderful experience. Dr. Ricketts listened to my concerns thoroughly and offered several corrective options for me to choose from. I went with progressive lenses and it was the best choice I could have made. It took a while to get used to them - now that I am, I'm not sure how I lived without them. No more headaches after staring at multiple monitors at work. During my appointment, I was the only patient in the waiting room because it was the end of the day. The entire front desk staff was so sweet and helpful. It was a team effort when it came time to pick out frames because I am incredibly indecisive. They were so patient with me - after a long time trying to decide which frames to go with, I eventually decided on the ones Dr. Ricketts picked out for me above the rest. I have received so many compliments on my glasses - he has great taste!

This was my first visit with Dr. Ricketts and it was great. I just switched my insurance so after I made the appointment, I called his office to confirm the copays and that the visit was covered. The person that answered was super helpful and friendly and took the time to go through everything with me. Dr Ricketts saw me right away, was very nice and gave me some good suggestions. Plus they helped me calculate the best contact order based on my discounts. I would definitely recommend.
