We are excited to announce that Dr. Gallentine recently became an ownership partner in Vision Care Associates. Dr. Gallentine started in August 2018 when our office expanded and moved into our current building. He is originally from Milford, Kansas and attended Ottawa University for his undergraduate degree. After graduating from Northeast Oklahoma State University College of Optometry in 2018, he moved to Kansas City, married his wife Erin, and started his optometric career.

Drs. Franken and Arnold commented “We are very excited to have Dr. Gallentine become a partner. Since day one, he has been providing great care to our patients and has really grown his own optometric practice. We’re fortunate to have him on our team and look forward to many more years of his success.”

Dr. Gallentine is an avid golfer, a big fan of the Kansas City Chiefs and K-State Wildcats, and is a proud owner of a miniature dachshund named DeeDee. “I’ve really enjoyed getting to know my patients in the community over the last 4+ years and I’m happy to put down some roots and invest long-term in Shawnee.
