“Efficient, professional, personalized care. I first went to urgent care for an inflamed eyelid and was prescribed two meds. Five days later and no improvement, I called Chittick and they saw me the same day in Savoy. My eye issue was correctly diagnosed and treated, and my eye is on the mend. Since this was a medical visit (not for new glasses,) they were able to bill my health insurance. My co-pay was less $ than those two wasted prescriptions. Note to self: I’ll call Chittick’s first the next time I have an eye problem. Thank you for excellent care.”
