Summary: Wonderful Visit!
June 19th, 2017
My experience with Fox Valley Ophthalmology and Dr. Halkias was fantastic! I was impressed the first minute I walked into the office. It is up to date with decor, clean, neat and the people behind the reception desk were very friendly. I registered as a new patient online. It was quick and easy. I highly recommend it! Once I checked in at the front desk, I waited less than 5 minutes before I was called. I was taken to the back by the tech who was very efficient and kind. You could tell she knew what she was doing. Once she was done, Dr. Halkias came in and performed by exam. She was also very kind and knowledgeable. I asked about extra tests that were routinely performed by my previous eye doctor (and were not covered under insurance) and she told me she would perform those tests if certain symptoms were present. In my case, I didn't have any symptoms to warrant the extra testing which I truly appreciated. I didn't feel as though I was taken advantage of like I have felt in the past. I am looking forward to my next visit with her and I am planning in setting up appointments for my other family members. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Halkias.
