As a Nashville resident for nearly twenty-five years and an optometrist for half of that time, Dr. Gavami has developed a diverse and loyal clientele since beginning his practice. Most of his patients and clients greet him as “Doctor Dave” when they walk through our doors. With an easy-going and relaxed manner, he’ll make sure you receive personal and unrushed attention, whether for an eye examination or a fitting of your frames.
When not busy at the shop, Dr. Gavami and his wife, as well as business partner Jerri, find plenty to occupy them. Foremost is their love of animals and dedication to cat and canine rescue. Their four dogs range from Luke (his 120 lb Doberman), to the much smaller and “mixed breed” Moo Moo, plus their pals Sydney and Nel. And we can’t forget the two cats, JoJo and Henry who round out the family. When not feeding his animals, you might catch Dr. Dave riding to the office on his Triumph motorcycle, pursuing his love of sky-diving or practicing taekwondo for which he has attained the level of black-belt.
Dr. Gavami graduated from John Overton High and received a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He completed his Doctorate of Optometry at Southern College of Optometry in Memphis.
