Dr. Mark Gotcher


Dr. Mark Gotcher was raised in Tucson Arizona. He worked as an underground copper miner for twelve years and eventually earned a pipe fitter journeyman certificate. As the mining industry declined he decided to make a career change that was a tad bit safer. After completing his optometric physician training at Pacific University College of Optometry in Forest Grove, Oregon, the Doc, his wife Margot, and son Kristopher returned to Arizona practicing in Flagstaff and Sedona before deciding to return to Oregon in 1999. Dr. Gotcher assumed the practice of the retiring Dr. Charles Radebaugh in December of 1999 that is now Advanced EyeCare Associates. The office provides vision, medical, surgical and emergency eye services. He enjoys seeing and getting to know patients of all ages and is compassionate about providing quality eye care to the Grove and surrounding area residents.

Since moving to Cottage Grove Dr. Gotcher has become active in civic activities and enjoys the small town atmosphere and the quality of life that Cottage Grove has to offer. In his off time he takes pleasure in outdoor activities such as fly-fishing, camping, hunting, vegetable gardening and golf. He feels blessed to have the opportunity of living and working in such a great community.
