Meet our Doctors

Dr. Rachel Browne

Dr. Rachel (Barnes) Browne completed an internship at EyeCare Partners during her fourth year of optometry school and is thrilled to have joined the ECP team. Dr. Browne was born and raised in Pella where she graduated from Pella Community High School in 2004. After attending Iowa State University, Dr. Browne went on to receive her doctorate in 2012 at the Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago. Upon graduating, Dr. Browne began practicing in Madison, WI before moving back to her hometown where she resides with her husband, Dustin, and their son, Taylen.

Throughout her clinical rotations, Dr. Browne received honors for excellence in patient care and she continues to strive to help every patient achieve their best vision and eye health. Her professional interests include primary eye care, contact lenses, and treating and managing eye disease. Dr. Browne is a member of the Iowa Optometric Association and the American Optometric Association. She is excited to serve her local community and hopes to provide the same dedicated care she received growing up as a patient of EyeCare Partners.

Outside the office, Dr. Browne enjoys traveling, white water rafting, and spending time with family, friends, and their two rescued cats. She is a member of Second Reformed Church and hopes to incorporate the mission work she enjoyed as a youth into her future optometric career.
