William (Wade) Stoddard, MD


Dr. Stoddard went into healthcare to find a meaningful and challenging career. He developed an interest in ophthalmology during medical school when he was exposed to the depth and complexity of the field, the precision of ocular surgery, and the great impact eye care could make in a patient's quality of life.

Dr. Stoddard enjoys playing the electric guitar, snowshoeing, skiing, and hiking. These days, he spends most of his spare time with his wife and their two beautiful young children.
