Our Values

Make a difference

Despite Colorado’s well-known major cities along the front range, over 700,000 people live in rural Colorado and lack easy access to health care services. These patients often have to drive several hours to access services like ours. 

That’s why we’re proud to partner with Eyemart Express to serve rural and Medicaid patients across southern Colorado and northern New Mexico. No matter how long their drive, they can confidently expect expert care at Joseph Gowen, O.D. & Associates and know they’ll get the products they need that same day.
