The Family EyeCare Center, P.C. in Pella recently welcomed a new pediatric optometrist, Dr. Bre Scott, to their eye care team.
Scott received her bachelor’s degree in biology with a minor in chemistry from the University of Northern Iowa and her master’s degree in optometry from the University of Missouri in St. Louis. She specializes in children’s eye exams, being one of the only pediatric optometry specialists in the area. Although she specializes in pediatrics, Dr. Scott sees patients of any age.
Originally from Garner, Iowa, Scott always knew she wanted to go into the healthcare field. After shadowing an optometrist as an undergrad, she found the perfect balance of patient care and biology.
“I love the interactions with people,” said Scott. “I feel like in other medical fields, you don’t get to spend as much time interacting with patients, it’s a really quick in-and-out. I feel like I get to spend a lot more time with patients than I would otherwise. I love helping people, seeing the big changes and their vision improving to help them feel better.”
In her free time, Scott enjoys being outdoors, hiking and football season. She is currently accepting new patients, and her office is located at 518 Franklin Street.
