William Robert Kilpatrick, MD is still remembered by our patients. They often recall with fondness how he took care of them. He founded Scottsdale Eye Physicians & Surgeons, PC in 1972. He practiced ophthalmology in Arizona from 1971 to 1992, including 20 years in Scottsdale and 18 years in Huron, South Dakota, prior to moving to Arizona. After eight years of retirement, Dr. Kilpatrick passed away in 1999. WRJK’s spirit lives on through his sons, who continue their father’s tradition of serving local and international patients. Together with their mother, Roberta, the sons dedicate their practice to WRJK’s memory. Today, Roberta still visits the staff, bringing homemade cookies and her famous lemon bars—which is exactly the way WRJK would have wanted it.
