Dr. Goedert joined his father’s established practice in 1974, making him the fourth generation in his family to practice optometry.  Initially, Dr. Goedert was devoted to general/classical optometry.  When he opened his own office in Central Valley (Shasta Lake City) a few years later, he began to notice a strong correlation between visual skills (or lack of them) and learning in children.  This led to his increased interest in children’s learning and perceptual skills—and the incorporation of vision training into his practice.  In  1987, Dr. Goedert joined the Sierra Optometric Study Group, which consists of other Behavioral Optometrists with offices in Northern California and Nevada and he continues to actively provide vision training to the North State and outlying areas.
Dr. Goedert lives in Millville with his wife Jacki and he has a son, Steven.  He is involved in the Exchange Club of Redding, serves on the Millville Fire Dept. Board of Directors, and is an active member of Little Country Church.  He enjoys woodworking, mountain biking, and traveling to antique shops looking for treasures.
