He has donated his services providing vision care in Central America, Mexico and locally at Step 13. His passions are people, music, and baseball (obviously), but don't get him started .... Dr. Alderete succeeds Dr. C.E. Johnson, who succeeded Dr. Newton Sharpe, who started THIS practice in 1926! Our philosophy is to be progressive in vision care and through education to have our patients participate in the personal decisions to preserve, improve and enjoy their precious gift of sight.
