Julia is an owner in the practice and works alongside her father, cousin Hannah, and colleagues Ben Sikkenga and Bill Meengs.

Douglas L. Totten, OD, MBA

Although Dr. Totten is now retired and no longer regularly sees patients, you may occasionally see him filling in for other doctors.

Dr. Totten graduated from the Michigan College of Optometry at Ferris State University in 1985 and was recognized as the Alumnus of the Year in 2018.

He serves on various committees for the profession including being chair of the American Optometric Association’s Ethics and Values Committee.  He and his wife Cathy are proud to have grown married children and to be new grandparents.  He is thrilled to practice with his daughter Julia, niece Hannah, and colleague Ben.

Friendly staff accommodated my busy schedule, by quickly, yet competently, performing my yearly eye exam in under 30 minutes, from stepping in to stepping out of the office. They also adjusted my existing pair of glasses during this time frame, saving me a trip to my upscale optical retailer of choice. If budget conscious, they also have a variety of affordable frames for sale. I highly recommend West Ottawa Eyecare to anyone without a regular eye doctor. Dr. Hannah is a very knowledgeable and kind eye doctor.
