Dr. Scott was absolutely wonderful. I had been seen by other opthamologists regarding a condition on my lower inner eyelid and left unclear on the diagnosis as well as how to treat the issue. Dr. Scott was able to accurately diagnoseme immediately, gave me a range of options, caringly and attentively listened as I told him through tears about my experiences with this issue, and was able to effectively treat and absolve my worries efficiently. He also called me personally twice to see how I was feeling and ask if I had any questions. I am so blessed to have found Dr. Scott and would recommend him to anyone in need of an experienced, caring opthamologist.

Where do i start! I had gone to two other ophthalmologists who couldn't give me a diagnosis and determine the root cause of my eye problems. This doctor was very thorough and went through my health history to determine what wascausing my eye issues which i really appreciated. I really trust this doctor. He's very professional with a great sense of humor too.

I have been a patient of Dr. Scott for over 20 years and he has not changed in all of those years. He still gives me his complete attention, answers all my questions, does the refraction himself (and not a techlike so many other doctors do) and is always cheerful and patient. I would definitely recommend him.
