Meet the Doctor

Doctor Travis Taylor, Optometrist, graduated with distinction from Pacific University College of Optometry. Doctor Taylor was chosen for the Dean’s Optometric Scholarship at Pacific University, and served as the area student representative for the Armed Forces Optometric Society.  His extensive clinical experience includes externships at Naval Medical Center San Diego, Indian Health Service Salem Oregon, and Northwest Pediatric Eye Care.

After graduation, Doctor Taylor served his country as a Lieutenant in the United States Navy. As division officer, he ran an optometry clinic, providing excellent eye care for our young men and women as they prepared to enter the ranks of the Navy. While in the service of the Navy Doctor Taylor earned several awards and honors including the Navy Meritorious Unit Commendation and Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal.

Doctor Taylor values and embodies the principle of service. He is an Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America program, and has been involved in leadership positions with the Boy Scout and Cub Scout organizations since 2006. He is always looking for ways to volunteer in the community, and has never abandoned the Scout slogan of ‘Do a Good Turn Daily!’

Doctor Taylor’s family is his main focus. He loves wrestling with his three young children, and spending time with his wife, Heather. He tries to take in every moment that his young boys still believe that he possesses superhuman powers. In their off hours, Heather and Travis run a professional photography business together, specializing in family portraits.

Day to day patient care brings Doctor Taylor satisfaction and joy. He finds fulfillment in creating relationships of trust and mutual respect with his patients, and in knowing that he can make a positive difference in their daily lives. He appreciates the responsibility inherent in being an Optometric Physician, and is excited to not only meet, but exceed your expectations for eye care.
