Dr. Jonathan Loo brings over forty years of experience in optometric practice to the Brookside Optometric Group. Born in San Francisco, Dr. Loo moved with his family to Stockton when he was one-year old. Deep roots were planted as he grew up and attended schools here, graduating from A. A. Stagg High School and then attending the University of the Pacific. He completed his undergraduate education at the University of California at Berkeley, with a Bachelor's Degree in Bacteriology. He then earned his Doctor of Optometry degree at Pacific University College of Optometry in Forest Grove, Oregon.
Returning to Stockton — "where the sun always shines!" — he established his optometric practice in 1976. He was fortunate to practice for many years with his friend and mentor, Marion Harris O.D., and later with his buddy Chris Iwata, O.D., and then with Mort Horn, O.D.—all of whom are longtime Stocktonians. His association with these doctors strengthened Dr. Loo's intention to not only provide the highest level of optometric vision care, but to also do so with respect, compassion and integrity. By joining the Brookside Optometric Group in 2014, Dr. Loo has continued to maintain these same values.
In 2003, Dr. Loo followed in Dr. John Fujii’s footsteps and became clinical director at the Pacific Laser Eye Center for nearly four years, while still maintaining his private practice. He gained invaluable clinical experience at this surgical center in caring for refractive surgery patients.
Although he has happily traveled to different parts of the world on eye mission trips to bring vision care to needy populations, Dr. Loo strongly believes, like his colleagues at Brookside Optometric, that his hometown of Stockton, California, has many needs as well. He has been a provider at health fairs, including the former Su Salud, which back then brought the entire health care community together to help Stockton's people. He is currently a member of the North Stockton Rotary and is a board member of the Pacific Athletic Foundation, which is a fundraising arm of UOP’s athletic department. Over his many decades of optometric practice, Dr. Loo has been an active contributor to other organizations as well, all of which help our City of Stockton become a better place to live.
