I was referred to Dr Scott for an urgent retina problem. From him and his staff, i felt comfortable, and I felt confident that I would receive excellent care, and I believe that I did and that my positive outcome will persist. He has a wonderful bedside manner. He explains complex and scary things in an understandable and comforting way.
