After graduating with honors and extensive training from State University of New York College of Optometry, Dr. Gottesman began clinical optometric care in 2002. He then opened Pediatric & Adult Eyecare in 2004 based out of his home office in New York. As the small practice grew, it was merged to form Wesley Eye Care Associates, which provides full-scope optometric care including Primary Care, Medical, Optical, Pediatrics and Contact Lens services. In recent years, Dr. Gottesman has developed a proficiency in emerging ophthalmic technologies, and provides clinical application and product development guidance to multiple startups and companies. 

Dr. Gottesman’s long term goals as Chief Optometric Officer (COptO) of Amplify Eyecare are to integrate the multiple optometry practices across the organization, cultivate a team atmosphere that allows each provider and practice to excel and contribute to the group, and elevate the optometric and technological competencies of Amplify Eyecare.
