Kyle M. Gillespie, O.D.

Trained in the treatment and management of ocular disease, Dr. Gillespie is passionate about providing exceptional eye care to his patients. He explained, “I chose to move to a small town because I wanted to contribute to a community. I truly care about the wellness of my patients and I want their eyes to be as healthy as possible.”

Dr. Gillespie received his Doctor of Optometry from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. After his training, he worked as an associate optometrist in rural Alabama, providing eye care for a hub community and gaining experience in a wide range of ocular diseases and vision care.

Following his time in Alabama, Dr. Gillespie worked in Northern Nevada with a leading ophthalmologist, diagnosing and treating ocular diseases such as cataracts, dry eye, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. It was during this time that Dr. Gillespie found Dr. Petersen’s practice in Quincy and knew it was the perfect fit.

He explained, “I had been looking for the right opportunity for a long time and was impressed with Dr. Petersen’s integrity, work ethic, and strong history of patient care. I am excited to build on that foundation, blending family eye care with the latest advancements in medical optometry.”

Dr. Gillespie is married with three kids and is thrilled about the recreational opportunities Central Washington holds. In his words, “Being outdoors brings me a lot of joy and helps me keep things in perspective. I am excited to raise my family here and teach them what really matters.”
