What People Say About Dr. Tamara Wyse, MD

I am a health care provider, so I am familiar with how offices work and am overall lenient in my evals. I am now looking for a new MD. After calling this office, I am forced to see the optometrist simply because I was asked one question - whether I wear contacts. This fact alone means the only person to see in this office is the optometrist. I would like to see Dr. Wyse who I did see several years ago. However, she does not evaluate patients that wear contacts, rather the optometrist who is

I have had wonderful support and care from Dr. Wyse and her team. She has effectively treated my glaucoma for many years, and this year performed cataract surgery (and IOL implant) procedures on both eyes. The results are fantastic! The process was extremely well planned and smoothly executed from pre-planning through post-op follow up visits. Dr. Wyse and her practice get my absolute highest recommendation.

Dr. Tamara Wyse is an outstanding eye doctor! She is highly qualified and is extremely thorough. I am so grateful I found her! I just had cataract surgery in November. I couldn't ask for better results. My surgeries were one week apart. At my appointment the next morning with her, I was seeing perfectly with 20/20 vision (even though she told me it may take up to a week for the vision to clear up after surgery.). And not only is she brilliant, she is very compassionate! She is the best!

Dr Wyse is amazing! I had seen two other doctors multiple times before someone recommended her to me. She was able to diagnose and treat my eye/eyelid issue - combination of blepharitis and dermatitis. I wouldn't go to anyone else. New patients take a little longer to get an appt, but she is well worth the wait. I truly believe without her knowledge that I would still be suffering with eye issues. She is easy to talk to and wants you to understand your diagnosis and treatment.

Although I live in Central Illinois, the closet surgeons offering the lens I wanted were in Chicago. I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Tamara Wyse in Northbrook. She was very experienced, knowledgeable, patient and pleasant. Once I met with her there was no doubt she would do my surgery. I had my surgery on July 19 and got the lens I wanted. All went perfectly and I couldn't be more pleased.

Best eye doctor ever. My mother is in her 80's and she has been seeing Dr. Wyse for some years now. I trust her completely. She is caring and extremely knowledgeable and a good listener. I am happy and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Well I have really wasted a lot of time today, including writing my scathing review. Within minutes of writing it, by coincidence, Dr Wyse called me and apologized, offering to see me this Sunday at my convenience. She is an extremely caring doctor and I look forward to meeting her and being in the great care that brought me to her in the first place. I do feel terrible and am normally understanding, but I waited months to become a new patient and apparently came on a very unusual day.

Dr. Wyse and staff are incredible. Whenever I scratched my eye her staff always made room for me. And when I mistakenly thought my insurance wasn't accepted (long story) and my new dr. misdiagnosed me, I decided I had to see her no matter what. Her staff and she made room for me in less than 24 hrs, diagnosed a serious retinal detachment, and got me to a specialist the same day. I owe my left eye vision to her and her staff. Caring and competence are the hallmarks of this doctor and her team.

The prescription for my glasses was wrong, and it cost me a lot of money to get new glasses with new and correct prescription.

I travel one and a half hours to see Dr Wyse because she is such an excellent physician--knowledgeable, professional and caring. She just operated on my cataracts with excellent results and has kept my glaucoma pressures in check. I would follow her anywhere!

Everyone was professional and made the experience much easier than I expected. I am very afraid of surgery and found there was no reason to be with Dr. Wyse and her team

Doctors were great! The billing department was terrible! They charged my husband $100 for something that was cover 100% under my insurance. Their office staff NEVER got back to me for a refund on the $100. I had to have my insurance call them.
