In 1972, Dr. John Coker started the practice in a small office on Ensign Road in Olympia. He was joined two years later by Dr. Jerome H. Zechmann and a year later by Dr. Alan Roser. Dr. Kenneth Partlow III joined the practice in 1982, rounding out the group. In 1993 Dr. Jerome H. Zechmann retired and passed his practice to his son, Dr. Jerome P. Zechmann. Two years later Dr. Coker retired and Dr. Brodie Wood joined the team.
Over the next 20 years, we not only grew through physical expansion but also in services. Here is an overview of our journey.
