Dr. Brooks Barteaux
Dr. Barteaux was raised on the family farm in Birtle, MB, the middle child of three siblings. He graduated from the Birtle Collegiate Institute in 2001, before moving on to a Bachelor of Science Degree at the University of Winnipeg majoring in Biochemistry. After that, Dr. Barteaux enrolled at the School of Optometry at University of Waterloo to pursue his Doctor of Optometry Degree. In 2009, he graduated on the Dean's Honour Roll and joined our practice in August of the year. Dr. Barteaux was also recognized for his work in Low Vision Therapy.
Dr. Barteaux spends his leisure time playing bass guitar in his band, cross country skiing, hunting, and cycling. He recently completed the "Gold Rush Gravel Grind" in Black Hills, South Dakota; a grueling 70 mile bicycle race.
Dr. Barteaux lives in Winnipeg with his wife Alissa and their labrador Iris. They are awaiting the birth of their first child.
