    Dr.Wessel came into the practice a few years ago. I have seen him from the start of him joining the Illinois retina institute practice. I started seeing Dr. Wessel after Dr. Conti left the practice. I am very pleased with his services and patient care. He had taken over the major issues I had because of Diabeties. He had some very big shoes to fill after Dr. Conti was my doctor. Dr.Wessel is fantastic and I'm very happy with him. Thank you to The doctors and staff at Illinois retina institute
