"Had two eye surgeries with Dr. Ticho. He and the staff are absolutely wonderful! Would highly recommend!"
"My daughter has been seeing Dr. Ticho since kindergarten. We moved away to Texas 4 years ago and moved back to Chicago. Never did I consider finding a new Doctor. He corrected her strabismus without surgery and since then I knew he was a very good doctor. He had always kind and gentle to Trinity. She is 18 now and we are happy to be back."
