Board Certified, American Board of Ophthalmology
Dr. Brett Gudgel was named one of Portland’s Top Doctors in 2023 by Portland Monthly Magazine.
Dr. Brett Gudgel is a fellowship-trained cornea specialist with interests in routine and complex cataract surgery, refractive surgery (LASIK and PRK), and corneal transplantation. Dr. Gudgel also provides comprehensive eye care for patients with a wide variety of routine eye care needs.
Dr. Gudgel grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Oklahoma, where he was elected into the Phi Beta Kappa honor society and graduated with a B.S. in Biochemistry. He subsequently attended the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine, where he was elected into the Alpha Omega Alpha and Gold Humanism honor societies and was the recipient of the Dean’s Award.
Dr. Gudgel completed his residency at the nationally recognized Dean McGee Eye Institute in Oklahoma City where he was elected chief resident and was awarded the Robert G. Small, MD Award for Medical Student Education two years in a row. He then pursued an additional year of fellowship training in Cornea, External Disease, and Refractive Surgery at the University of Utah’s renowned Moran Eye Center.
Dr. Gudgel was drawn to ophthalmology because he found improving and preserving a patient’s vision to be extremely rewarding. He feels that practicing medicine is a tremendous privilege and is grateful for the opportunity to serve his patients.
Outside of the office, Dr. Gudgel most enjoys spending time with his wonderful wife and 2 children. He loves to explore the outdoors with his family and has a particular interest in hiking and skiing. He is also a big college football fan and loves watching his Oklahoma Sooners play on Saturdays.
Dr. Gudgel saved my eyes! I had gone to other places where the technicians and doctors did not take my eye pressure seriously. Dr. Gudgel did. He thoroughly examined my eyes, and prescribed some drops that reduced my eye pressure by 10 points or more. I highly recommend Eyehealth Northwest, where the doctors and staff treat their patients with care and respect.
I appreciate all of Dr. Gudgel's expertise, care, and quality experiences prior to, during, and after my surgery. LASIK was one of the best things that I've done in my life!
My experience was very good. Adina and Dr. Gudgel answered all of my questions and explained everything thoroughly. The ladies at check-in and check-out were thorough, efficient and personable.
Very clean facility. The staff is friendly and professional. Dr. Gudgel is skilled and has wonderful ‘bedside manner’. He even took time in the evening of my eye surgery to check on me and make sure I was doing well. Not many doctors do that and I really appreciated it!!!
Thorough, professional and friendly doctors. Over the years I have had exams done by 3 different doctors at EyeHealth Northwest- Oregon City, and I have been pleased with them all. Dr. Gudgel did my last exam, and he is very good. He also did my wife's cataract surgery, and she was very happy with the results.
