After marrying this beautiful gal he saw on the campus of UC Berkeley, Dr. Gutierrez knew the next steps of his life was ready. With two babies, Dr. Gutierrez, in 1980, a young (handsome, he'll tell you) ambitious, kind, hardworking visionary -(believe us he still is a visionary), moved his family to Sacramento root himself in what was mostly a small town with not much of a personality, to begin his career in Optometry, begin his practice and raise his family and implement his vision of change for Sacramento.
Midtown Sacramento set the stage for his private practice in 1980 with a one staff member. By 1990 he moved his practice into a beautiful Midtown Victorian, which Dr. Gutierrez remodeled every evening and every single weekend putting his wife, kids and others into tow to create a new location. Since the doors opened, we have served thousands of Sacramentans and people from across the globe. His practice includes an on-site, fabricating optical lab, full frame dispensary, and a staff of eleven. Around this time, Dr. Gutierrez added one more child to his family...
