Meet Our Doctor

Dr. Jeffery E. Gates, OD

Dr. Jeff Gates graduated Optometry school in 1991 and soon thereafter signed on to be an independent doctor of optometry located in Wal-mart. He has remained in the same location and retained the same loyal patient base, but has since developed the practice into a thriving primary eye care center. We offer comprehensive visual examinations and a full range of vision care services, specializing in contact lenses and family vision care.
