Dr. DeAnn Fitzgerald graduated from the college of optometry in Forest Grove Oregon in 1984. She came to Cedar Rapids, Iowa in August of 1984.
Doc, as her patients, family, and friends call her, has been a practicing optometrist in the corridor community for the past 25 years. Her private eye care practice provides comprehensive eye care services to over 10,000 patients annually. Realizing her passion for optometry and health care as well as her desire to do more for our local and world communities, she founded her own nonprofit, Spanda Inc., in 2006. Spanda Inc. is based on the notion that “it takes only a single idea, a single action to move the world”.
