We love getting to know our patients and we want you to get to know us too.
Meet our team below!
DR. CHRISTOPHER GOSWICK
Dr. Christopher Goswick's earliest encounters with optometry occurred when his mom, Dr. Goszcz, used him as her guinea pig while in optometry school. Perhaps as a result of this early exposure, Dr. Goswick originally decided to pursue other areas, getting a B.A. in Philosophy and then managing network security for Nokia in California.
However, his life-long interest in anatomy and unparalleled chatting skills beckoned him back to optometry, and he graduated from the New England College of Optometry in 2006. As an optometrist, Dr. Goswick truly adores getting to know his patients and their families. Dr. Goswick is a contact lens specialist and particularly enjoys problem-solving contact lens issues as well as fitting patients in multi-focal contact lenses.

“Going Jeeping” in his Jeep Wrangler is his favorite summer pastime
