"Nice place, good doctors, great service. Very patient and considerate and took the time to answer all my questions."
"I was contacted by the office and they have send us the goggles free of charge. Thank you."
"Dr. Ticho has been my eye doctor for years and has always done a phenomenal job! The staff is friendly and accommodating as well."
"First time visit to TICHO Eye Associates. Very nice office including its own optical center. I was greeted by the very friendly and helpful receptionist and then asked to wait for a few moments to be taken back. Alyna was my technician. She was very professional, organized and pleasant. She did all my testing and then I followed up with Dr. Sanders. Meeting a new healthcare provider can be intimidating and scary. Dr. Sanders was kind, gentle, thorough and patient. She answered all my questions and addressed my concerns. I would definitely recommend TICHO for any optometry needs. Thank you TICHO!Debra Pogwizd-Schroedle"
"thankful for a great doctor - I owe my sight and appearance of my eye to Dr. Ticho . Before I saw him I was left with a very crooked and virtually blind left eye due to a skleral buckle. Few doctors will work on an adult with strabismus. He informed me that it might take more than one surgery to correct. Dr. Ticho straightened my eye in one surgery, then a second extensive cataract surgery restored my vision. I am forever thankful. If there is a short wait to see Dr. Ticho, sit back and relax. he is truly the BEST."
