So Nice She Went Twice Linda Shares Her Experiences With Dr. Scott

Linda didn’t come to Dr. Scott like most patients. She met him when he assisted with a dermatology surgery to remove skin cancer under her eye. “Because it was so close to my eye, the doctor wasn’t comfortable closing the incision,” Linda explains. “The dermatologist did her work to remove the cancer and then whisked me off for Dr. Scott to stitch me back up.”

After that, Linda went to see Dr. Scott many more times. “They did follow-up appointments for a year after that surgery, and that felt really good,” she says. “I had stitches all along the lower part of my eye, but you would not even know anything occurred. There’s absolutely no scar — it’s incredible.”

Linda had her surgery in February 2020, so her first follow-up appointments were in the middle of the COVID-19 lockdown. “I was a little freaked out about that,” Linda remembers, “but they put my mind at ease. All their protocols for cleaning were very evident.”

During her follow-up consultations, Dr. Scott advised Linda that she would benefit from an upper blepharoplasty and she then proceeded with the surgery in September 2022. “When you tell somebody you had your eyelids done for medical reasons, they’re like, ‘Yeah, right,’” she laughs. “But my peripheral vision has opened up tremendously, and of course, it had the benefit of making my eyes ‘reappear,’ so to speak.”

Linda particularly appreciates that the work appears natural. “It looks very subtle,” she explains. “Dr. Scott explains that he does everything with precise measurements, so it doesn’t alter the [overall] way somebody looks.”

Linda moved to Northern Virginia to be near her son and his wife, who have a 4-year-old child and another due any day. A former teacher at Quantico, she retired to help with child care. Considering her other responsibilities, Linda is grateful for the ease of making an appointment with the office. “Dawn is the heavenly office manager and surgical scheduler,” she says. “She is fantastic, and everyone who works with Dr. Scott makes it so the patient doesn’t have to worry about the logistics.”

After many visits to the office, Linda remains thrilled that she found Eye Plastic Associates. “I have some friends and family who have gotten work done,” she says, “and they weren’t happy at all. I just think, ‘You should’ve gone to see Dr. Scott!’
