One of the Best Decisions I’ve Ever Made Dave Kirkland Shares His Experience With Dr. Scott

Dave Kirkland visited his ophthalmologist for his ptosis (droopy eyelids) that he wanted to fix. He also wanted to improve his hooded upper eyelids and under-eye bags. His doctor recommended Dr. Scott at Eye Plastic Associates to help him. So, in May 2020, Dave went and got his procedure done.

Referring to his upper eyelids, Dave says, “We took pictures of my eyes and sent those pictures to my insurance company. I was able to get my upper eyelids taken care of with insurance, and I paid for the laser treatment for under my eyes.” He further explains that for the upper eyelids, “Dr. Scott cut some of the skin off and sewed them back together. For my under-eyes, he used a laser that absorbed the fat and removed a layer of skin.” The healing process took some time, but Dave practiced patience and discipline during this time. Finally, after a few months, Dave felt great!

Dave loves the patient care at Eye Plastic Associates. “Sometimes I would call them during my healing process, and they would ease my worries. They would tell me that everything is going to be okay and that this is a part of the process.” He found the staff super friendly, and they made him feel comfortable while waiting to be seen. Dave said that “the whole experience was seamless from beginning to end. The staff is very courteous and treat every patient like they’re family.” Dave has another appointment with Dr. Scott this month, and it will probably be the last follow up he will need.

Dave graduated from Duke Divinity School and has been a Methodist pastor for 32 years. “As a pastor, I want to look my best for my people. Having this surgery has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.”

“Dr. Scott puts his patients first,” Dave says. After Dave was walked through how the procedure would go, Dr. Scott gave him a chance to ask questions. Dave explains that Dr. Scott took the time to answer his questions and made
him feel comfortable. Dave had nothing but great things to say about Dr. Scott. “I would absolutely recommend Dr. Scott. He is very friendly and has a great personality.” He went on to say that Dr. Scott always provides amazing
treatments that work best for his patients.
