The Best Doctor Why Fatemeh Recommends Dr. Scott

Fatemeh’s ophthalmologist referred her to Eye Plastic Associates after she developed ptosis, causing heavy, drooping eyelids. “It was really hard for me to see,” she remembers. She visited Dr. Scott to receive a repair surgery and improve her vision.

During her first visit, Fatemeh says, “I could tell he was the best doctor. He was so kind and professional, taking his time and explaining everything to me.” Fatemeh was a nurse for 40 years, so she knows a thing or two about patient care and bedside manner, and she was particularly impressed by Dr. Scott’s. “When he explained something, he’d pause to give me enough time to think about it and ask questions,” she says. “I never felt like he was pushing me, and he was so kind and patient.”

When the time came, “Surgery was great,” Fatemeh says, so was recovery, with her reporting, “Everything healed smoothly.” She can now see much better than before the procedure and is very pleased with the results.

Fatemeh is married with two adult children and gushes, “I’m so happy in my life.” But her path was not always an easy one. She immigrated to the U.S. from Iran 37 years ago. Fatemeh was a nurse-midwife in her home country. She needed to be relicensed as a registered nurse in America. Not understanding the English language at the time made relicensing even more challenging: In a dramatic understatement, she notes, “It was not easy!”

Looking back, she says, “My children are so proud of me because I landed in the U.S. with two children, spoke no English, and didn’t know anybody. My daughter said, ‘How did you do that?’” These days, Fatemeh tries to remain as active as possible, walking 5–7 miles most days and belly dancing “if I have time.”

She remains grateful to Dr. Scott for his care and her newly-restored vision. “Dr. Scott really cares about his patients; he treats them like his own family,” Fatemeh says. “I can’t even explain how wonderful he is.”
