Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Scruggs "I aim to provide the highest quality of care that is tailored to the individual patient in a compassionate and friendly manner, while being accessible through the entire process.  I thoroughly evaluate the individual and have a detailed discussion to determine the patient's specific goals, needs, and expectations to come up with an individualized treatment plan.  Often the treatment plan does not involve surgery, however if surgery is the best course, I ensure that the patient has a clear understanding of our plan and feels that all of their concerns have been addressed."

Had eye lid surgery and I couldn't be happier.; improved vision and improved look. It looks natural and not with a startled look. Surgery was quick, painless and healing was very quick. Operation was Thursday and almost all discoloration was gone by Monday.
