A native of Pennsylvania, Dr. Neitz first visited Tracktown USA in 2007 to run the inaugural Eugene Marathon. Dazzled by its charm, he purchased a home in 2009 and visited occasionally until permanently relocating in July, 2017. A former physical science teacher, he graduated with honors from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry in 1989 and was in solo, private practice for 25 years. For Dr. Neitz, a favorite part of private practice is interacting with his patients on a personal and professional level. He enjoys utilizing his teaching skills to explain and answer questions as they arise and feels education is an integral part of the examination. An avid runner, he enjoys the many trails and roads in and around Eugene to run, bike or walk his 2 dogs. He is looking forward to attending the many track and field and cross country events at Hayward Field and the University of Oregon.
