Bill Cheslock (Dr. Bill)
I have been in practice for over 30 years (since 1980). I graduated from Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon in 1977 with a Bachelor of Science in Visual Science. Then I graduated from Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon in May, 1980 with a Doctorate in Optometry.
While going to pre/post graduate school, I worked at Finnegan Farms in Forest Grove in all about 16 years. In November, 1980; I moved to Longview and began working for Al Pierce, O.D at 1319 Hemlock St., Longview, WA . Shortly before Dr. Pierce passed away, I purchased his practice. In January 1984, I became sole proprietor of the practice.
In January, 1993; I merged partnership with Dr. Terry Clark thus creating Cascade Eye Care at 860 11th Ave., Longview, WA . Dr. Clark retired in December 2001; and Dr. John Cheslock (nephew) joined the practice September, 2002.
In June, 2005; I built a new building 950 11th Ave, Longview, WA and in 2006; Dr. John Cheslock became a junior partner in the practice.
In 1986, I met and married my wife, Deidre. We have been married for nearly 27 years and have 4 beautiful children. Our oldest Cole 24 yrs old, graduated from WSU in May, 2011 with an Accounting degree. Our daughter, Jordyn 23 yrs old, is at school at Central University in Ellensburg, WA where she is pursuing a degree in Music; our third, daughter, Mercedes 21 yrs old, will graduate in June from Central University with a Micro-Biology/Chemistry degree and hopes to pursue Optometry or something in the sciences. Our youngest, Ian 18 yrs old is at our local college, Lower Columbia College in Longview, WA. He is undecided, but is looking into the medical field or Engineering.
Over the years, I have been very active in my community. I am an active member of American Optometric Association of Washington and Washington Association of Optometric Physicians. I have been a past president and member of Monticello Lions Club, past president and member of Longview Soccer Association.
