Dr Scott is really nice however it is extremely frustrating trying to get your glasses.. They are horrible and mess up your lenses and take ages to get them to you... Then to be redone because they are messed up... Should never take months to get new glasses

This guy is a prince among men and a heck of a bird hunter. He and his staff are so warm and homey that I feel more like I'm visiting my brother than my eye doctor. Some event put their schedule behind on the day of my appointment, but I told them that I needed to leave for another appointment and they put me on a fast track. Dave even ate his lunch on the run so I could get out in time to get where I needed to go. I tried some other docs once, but never again. Dr. Scott is my eye doctor.

Dr. Scott has been my eye healthcare provider for more than 35 years. I find Dr. Scott to be extremely thorough with great attention to detail. His manner is respectful, thoughtful, kind and focused. He is able to translate complicated medical information about my eye condition in clear, accurate and easy to understand examples. As a life long learner, he continues to study new procedures and techniques, thus being able to offer a wide variety of healthcare options and information.

Although I am sure that Dr. Scott is a very competent Dr.,I found his manner to be rude and condescending. I have talked to other people who were also the victim of his rude personality, I will not be returning to this Dr.
