Dr. Hattan grew up near Eugene, Oregon, in a small logging town called Crow.  He graduated from Oregon State University in 1968 with a bachelor’s degree in English.  A few years later, he continued to Pacific University’s college of Optometry, graduating with a Doctor of Optometry degree in 1978.

In 1980, Dr. Hattan moved to Clarkston, Washington, where he practiced optometry in a private clinic until 1993, when he became the optometrist at Costco in Clarkston.  Dr. Hattan practiced optometry at Costco until he decided to retire in 2016.
