Nicholas Koshuta, O.D. was born in Pennsylvania. He grew up in the small town of Hometown, PA, which is in the Coal Region of the eastern part of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Koshuta graduated from Pennsylvania State University in 1997 with a B.S. in Biology / Physiology. He moved on to Philadelphia to attend Pennsylvania College of Optometry. While at PCO, Nicholas completed internships with Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Boston, MA; Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage, AK; and Hazleton Eye Center in Hazleton, PA.
After graduation in 2001, Dr. Koshuta went on to complete a residency in Primary Care Optometry with the New England College of Optometry while working at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Newington, CT. Following his residency, Nick moved to Whiteriver, AZ and worked for the White Mountain Apache Tribe through the Indian Health Services. While working with the IHS, Dr. Koshuta met Dr. Jennifer Samuel, who would later become his wife and future partner at Flagstaff Eye Care.
Nick left the Public Health Services and took a new job with Kokopelli Eye Care in Prescott to move closer to Jennifer. Prescott was closer, but not quite close enough. Dr. Jones found out about Dr. Koshuta’s dilemma and offered a solution. In February 2006, Nick became the owner of Flagstaff Eye Care. On June 25, 2006, Nick and Jennifer were married at the Forest Highlands in Flagstaff. Dr. Koshuta loves living in Flagstaff. He enjoys hiking, camping, biking and playing with his sons Luke and Zachary. He is an active member of the Flagstaff Sunrise Lions Club and is proud to serve the Flagstaff Community.
