Dr. Roland (“Dr. Nate”) was born in Texas and has familial roots in both the Southern and the Midwestern US. After graduating from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, he completed his residency at the Raymond G. Murphy VAMC in Albuquerque.

As a doctor, he believes that it is most important to listen to patient concerns and then tailor his exam to their needs. He has been awarded accolades for both his clinical approach & community involvement. He served as a Clinical Instructor at Pacific University in Forest Grove and is a member of the Oregon Optometric Physicians Association.

He has a wide range of interests. Growing up in a very musical family, he has a passion for music and the performing arts. He is a fan of marching bands & the Rose Parade. Most importantly, he is a dog person who has spent the last 19 years in the company of Corgis.

Preparing for your Visit:

Prior to Your Appointment: Please complete and print the Patient history, HIPPA and payment policy forms even if you are an established patient. Once you have completed the forms, please bring them with you on the day of your appointment. Due to privacy issues, please do not attempt to send these forms to our office via e-mail.

Please check with your insurance company(s) to verify your “vision care” coverage for routine eye examinations by calling the customer service phone number listed on your insurance card. You may also call this same number to verify “medical” benefits for medically necessary visits and procedures.

The Day of Your Appointment:
Bring your current medical insurance card(s) with you.

  • The co-pay amount listed on your insurance card will be collected at the time of your visit.
  • For charges not covered by your individual insurance plan, payment is due at the time of service. Prompt pay discounts are available on certain services. Please ask at the front desk.

As part of your examination with us today, your pupils may be dilated. With dilation, most people experience light sensitivity and difficulty with near vision (such as reading). Some individuals also have difficulty seeing in the distance. The effects of the dilation can last several hours.
