Provider Bio down arrow

Dr. Brad Christopherson sees optometry patients at Marshfield Clinic Stevens Point Center four days per week and at Marshfield Eye Center one day per week.

A native of Wausau, Dr. Christopherson enjoys practicing in both Stevens Point and Marshfield. He earned his optometry degree from the Michigan College of Optometry, Big Rapids.

After his undergraduate schooling at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, he worked as a genotyping technologist at Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation. After having the opportunity to follow Optometrist Lance Lubach, O.D., he decided he wanted to go back to school to train as an optometrist.

“I think that growing up in Wausau, I can relate pretty well to my patients,” he said. “I’m really thrilled to be practicing in both of these centers.”

He enjoys outdoor activities including hunting and fishing, and playing tennis.
