Doctors & Staff
Meet the experienced and friendly doctors and staff who make Salmon River Vision Clinic, PLLC the leading provider of vision care products and services in Salmon.
For many years Dr. Taylor has had a tremendous impact on the Salmon community and their vision needs. Through his leadership skills he has served as the President of the Idaho Optometric Physicians and chairman of the Board of Optometric licensing. His faithful and dedicated service was rewarded by Optometrists throughout the state of Idaho by voting him as the Optometrist of the Year. He is active in the community as a member of the Rotary Club and as a member of his church.
He has strong family ties and participates in his children’s lives as much as possible. He enjoys the outdoors and takes every chance he can to stay active.
He began his educational career by obtaining an associates degree from Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho. Following Ricks College he graduated from Idaho State University in Pocatello, Idaho with a Bachelor of Science degree. Pursuing a career in Optometry led him to Chicago, Illinois where he completed a four year doctoral degree to become an Optometric Physician. While in Chicago he completed several externships that included: Pediatrics at the Illinois Eye Institute, Low Vision at the Chicago Light House for the Blind, Cornea and Contact Lenses at the Illinois Eye Institute, Retina at Mid West Eye Physicians, and Primary Care at University of Chicago.
Growing up in Salmon created a desire for the outdoors and a love for sports from an early age. While hiking, camping and fishing a strong sense of family values was learned and followed. These family values are kept alive with a family of his own. His family enoys outings together as they look for new adventures while riding mountain bikes, skiing and traveling to New York City to visit grandparents. A disciplined work ethic was developed at a young age as he worked for different employers in the valley. Dr. Jones has carried this work ethic with him as he became an Optometrist, and will continue to use it as he serves the community.
