About The Doc

A little about Dr. Richard Wilkerson, his practice and most importantly, his family.

HE IS PASSIONATE

The doctor has over 30 years of passion for what he does. The biggest joy for him is seeing the reaction when people finally realize what they have been missing, because of poor vision. It is a real eye-opener! The only thing he is more passionate about is his family.

HE IS DEDICATED

Dr. Wilkerson commuted from Washington Court House to practice in Columbus on the Westside. He had been doing this for over 25 years and will continue for the love of his patients. He enjoyed helping the community of Hilltop to see clearly. He has seen the west side of Columbus change and grow over the years.  Dr. Wilkerson is excited about the move to Dublin and the amazing people he will grow to meet at the new location.

GETS THE JOB DONE

The doctor will always find a solution. He is no stranger to defeat, but he knows when to consult further expertise, especially when dealing with something as valuable as your eyes. Patients who keep coming back because they know what to expect from a visit with the doc. A kind, humble doctor that will make sure you can see as clearly as you should.

More About Dr. Wilkerson

Dr. Wilkerson grew up in a small town, on the Virginia, North Carolina state line. He was raised on the dirt road family farm, where he learned about discipline and work ethic. He left his small town and went to Longwood College where he obtained his undergraduate degree. His father was a retired Air Force Colonel and he decided to follow in his footsteps and join the Air Force. This was a great decision looking forward. He studied long and hard while he attended Pennsylvania College of Optometry where he became “The Doc”.

The Air Force kept him busy as their eye doctor, and stationed him in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This is when his life changed forever. He and his wife adopted a little baby boy, Kyle! That was over 28 years ago.  You can see pictures of him  hanging in his office. After his time in the Air Force, they moved to Ohio to be closer to family. They now reside in ,Washington Court House, Ohio with their dog and cat. Ellie Mae (dog) and Jed(cat) keep him very busy.

I am sure the doc will be happy to talk more about his family and past when you come in for a visit!
