    Great job! Dr. McKevitt is very professional, the consultation covered all of my question and concerns. The procedure was quick, painless and resolved my eye problem. The follow up was equally professional. The front desk ladies are friendly, helpful and understanding. (I had a scheduling conflict.)

    I recommend Dr. Sylvia McKevitt to anyone needing plastic surgery around his or her eyes. I have had drooping eyelids for some time, and it had recently become clear that it was affecting my vision. After successful cataract surgery last year, I still noticed glare when driving at night and extreme eye fatigue after working at the computer for a few hours. At the recommendation of my primary ophthalmologist, I went to Dr. McKevitt at Eye Plastics Northwest. She performed a virtually painless, ou

    Dr. McKevitt was recommended by a coworker as the best in the Northwest for upper and lower blepharoplasty. After my experience and results, I would agree. Thank you Dr. McKevitt for your great skill and excellent results.

    Dr. McKevitt combines surgical expertise with compassion to provide a truly high standard of care. I first saw Dr. McKevit with swollen, droopy eyelids which over several months had reduced my vision from 20/30 to 20/60, a point where I could no longer drive. Dr Mckevitt treated my eyelids to eliminate the swelling and performed surgery to correct the droopiness. The surgery was carried out expertly: very little post-operative discomfort, my vision was restored to 20/30, and I can drive again

    I could not be more pleased with the surgery to correct eyelid entropy on my eyes. The dry eye discomfort I was living with is now gone and my eyes look perfectly normal again. Northwest Eye Surgeons did me a big favor when they referred me to Dr. McKevitt.

    Dr McKevitt and her staff are great. She was recommended by my eye doctor for a consultation for eyelid surgery. She recommended an endoscopic brow lift too. She explained the procedure, recovery and insurance benefits thoroughly. I felt very confident having her do it. I'm so happy with the results and the improvement in my vision and appearance.

    After my operation to remove cancer from my lower lid of my left eye, I went to see Dr. Silvia McKevitt. With her magical finger tips, Dr. McKevitt restored the tissue surrounding my eye to its original appearance much to my delight. Her professional performance along with her compassion I found so helpful. Little did I realize the whole procedure included keeping me so comfortable. I would never hesitate to be once more a patient of Dr. McKevitt if I ever need help. She was wonderful!

    I am a 58 y.o. healthy and fit male who had trouble with my eyelid. It looked swollen and was irritated. I thought it might be wadded up soft contact lens, so I knew it was important to have it looked at. Dr. McKevitt and her staff were very professional and knowledgeable every step of the way, she showed exceptional skill in diagnosis and removal of an oil gland stye that had grown on the inside of my eyelid. She did this with the least amount of pain, promoting my fast recovery.

    Dr. McKevitt and staff did are great job of explaining that was going on. She was very nice and her smile/deminor made her trustworthy. Medically she was amazing. I was in a car crash and had a hard time seeing out of my right eye. I had a cut over my eye lid that made it droop down into my vision. I had an eye lash that would press against my eye. She was able to help with opening up my right eye so that it was no longer in the way of my vision. As well as take care of my eye lash and scar size

    Short version: Long wait during 2nd visit while Dr. saw multiple patients at one time. She didn't return to the exam room within stated period even though she knew I had a time constraint. Later got a call from secretary to return and finish the exam at no extra charge. No extra charge, really? I asked for a refund instead but it was refused. Very poor customer service attitude. My time is valuable just like yours. Enjoy my $75.00 Doc. I hope it was worth it, Lol!
