it would be nice if he and the other doctors got together with me and my family and told them what is going on with me. This way if they don’t want to help me I know where I stand. I am starting to not be able to move around with out a cane again. I have cloud in my right eye. Been told I have cataracts in both eyes. There will be a time when I can’t see too. That is way I get depressed when I can’t see my grandchildren on a regular basis. There. Will be a day coming soon. when I can’t see them anymore.

Dr. Scott does a great job of explaining things in a way that make sense. I was hesitant to take some medication and he did a wonderful job of explaining that what I am doing now in terms of taking the medication is preventing a much larger health problem down the road. Physically I felt fine, so I rationalized that I did not need the medication, but Dr. Scott's methodology convinced me that this is the right step to take. Also of note, there was no pressure to begin the medication, he simply laid out the case and it was up to me to decide.

I can't say it too many times, if I did not know that Dr. McNaughton provided the best medical care I could/would ever need. I have a lot of issues and I am now a better person because he listens to me and hear me. He treats my ailments and not my symptoms and anything outside of his area of expertise that requires a specialist he gives a referral. So, I would want my friends and family to receive the same level of care.

Dr. McNaughton is a great Doctor because he truly listens to everything you say and answers all your questions. He tells you of his findings and what the next step is. He explains things and makes you feel like your health does matter. It's uplifting because most Doctors aren't that patient and just want to hurry up and go to the next patient.
