As president of The Eye Center, Dr. Goltschman has implemented his practice philosophy of utilizing the latest technology to better treat patients. At The Eye Center he services patients in St. Louis as well as the surrounding metropolitan areas of St. Charles County and the Illinois regions of Madison County, Monroe County, and St. Clair County.
