Our Staff

Dr. David Gilbert, OptometristMeet Dr. David Gilbert! Dr. Gilbert is a Virginia Beach native and is very passionate about supporting other local and family-owned establishments to support our fantastic community. He currently has offices in both Virginia Beach and Downtown Norfolk. Dr. Gilbert has over 20 years of experience in comprehensive family eye care and the medical management of eye disease. If you have never had a visit with Dr. Gilbert, here’s what you’re missing… Aside from being a tremendously caring and skilled physician, Dr. Gilbert is hilarious! You will be laughing through your exam and leave with a smile on your face. Dr. Gilbert treats you like family. When Dr. Gilbert is not in the office you will find him with his beautiful wife, Dr. Deena Falsetta-Gilbert, and their two precious boys.
Dr. Deena Falsetta-Gilbert, M.D.Say hello to Dr. Deena Falsetta-Gilbert! Dr. Falsetta-Gilbert grew up in Michigan and later met Dr. David Gilbert while they both studied at the Nova Southeastern College of Optometry. Dr. Falsetta-Gilbert is profoundly skilled in helping patients of all ages and walks of life. However, it is diagnosing and treating the visual problems that afflict children where she found her true calling. For instance, many people think that if you need glasses and see 20/20, then your vision is perfect. However, there are several mechanisms that NEED to work in order for clear and comfortable vision. Some of the symptoms a patient can experience are: losing their place while reading, easily frustrated with most near-point work, having trouble completing homework because their eyes are tired, resisting or avoiding reading, and consistently testing poorly when they know the material. There is something beautiful in the way that Dr. Falsetta-Gilbert can connect with a child that might be experiencing trouble reading. Many times she is the first person to understand what they are experiencing in school, and she works tirelessly to give them back their self-confidence. If you or your child is having a hard time with reading, Dr. Falsetta-Gilbert wants to help you. Dr. Falsetta-Gilbert’s passion for her patients is rare and genuine; she is a treasure. In her downtime, Dr. Falsetta-Gilbert can be found with her 2 adorable sons and devastatingly handsome husband.
Dr. Rachel Willcoxon, M.D.You are missing out if you haven’t met Dr. Rachel Willcoxon! Dr. Willcoxon is originally from Georgia and now calls Virginia Beach her home. Dr. Willcoxon’s specialties include work with pediatric patients, the treatment and management of ocular diseases, and specialty contact lenses for myopia control. This includes diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and cataract treatment and management. With a skillset like this Dr. Willcoxon has every reason to have quite an ego. Nevertheless, Dr. Willcoxon is incredibly down-to-earth and tremendously kind. When Dr. Willcoxon is not at Gilbert Eyecare she is mastering skateboarding or at the beach with her boyfriend and their adorable dog, Dune.
