Dr. Scott and her staff are exceptional. Both my husband and I had wonderful experiences with her. Not only did she remove the cataracts in both my eyes and implant distance lenses, but actually repaired a botched cataract surgery that my husband had with another doctor in another organization. Dr. Scott was very professional, extremely knowledgeable in her field, and we both felt that she was genuinely concerned about us.

Miracle Worker? Yes!!! My mom-in-law, a 50 year diabetic, 15 year old cataracts FINALLY got Dr. Scott to remove her cataracts. One eye was difficult & the other needed to come out as a whole cataract. Dr. Scott took the time to do it right! So very pleased...my mom-in-law can see!! My parents both went to Dr. Scott and had great results, so that is why we went with Dr. Scott. She & her staff are amazing! 10 stars**********
