In 1998, three of the largest optometric practices in Stockton combined to become Brookside Optometric Group. This merger allowed us to provide extended hours, acquire some of the industry’s most technologically advanced diagnostic and testing equipment to care for our patients, and offer one of the largest frame inventories in the Central Valley.
Why did we do this? We did it because “we get it.” We get it that people live busy lives and need appointments that are not necessarily between the hours of 9:00 and 5:00 Monday through Friday. We get it that people hate having to endure long waits for their doctor only to be seen by a technician followed by a brief 3-minute meet and greet by their doctor. We get it that people want answers to their questions instead of a simple pat on the head as they are being handed a prescription.
We get it that the honor is that people allow us to see them, not for them to be allowed to see us.
