Pacific Northwest Eye Associates: High-Touch Vision Care Services

pacific-nw-eyePacific Northwest Eye Associates was voted Best for 2016 for a high-quality and high-touch vision care experience in the South Puget Sound, with the convenience of two office locations. Formed in 1995 by experienced ophthalmologists Dr. Ted Baer, Dr. Richard Bowe and Dr. John Goodin, the group maintained a busy practice on South Cedar Street in Tacoma before building a modern 20,000-square-foot facility at the corner of Union Avenue and South 19th Street in 2011. Later the practice expanded to Gig Harbor.

Pacific Northwest Eye Associates provides South Sound families with the latest in comprehensive and specialty eye care, from standard eye exams and optometry to treatment for conditions such as cataracts and glaucoma.

According to Geoff Charlton, chief operating officer, the doctors and staff of Pacific Northwest Eye are dedicated to providing skilled, compassionate vision care to residents of the communities they serve. In each facility they strive to treat each patient as an individual, recognizing their unique needs and concerns. They are also proud to serve a diverse population, offering language interpretation in their offices for up to 12 languages.

“Creating a positive, high-touch experience to each person who visits is really an art,” says Charlton. “It is what our staff does on a daily basis. We do follow-up reviews on every visit and are proud that 95% percent of our visitors say our staff are warm and welcoming and provide personal service. The staff here sees it as a calling to do what we do.”
