About Dr. Kim Scott A few years ago I was suffering from erratic blood pressure, high and low. In addition I was nauseous and dizzy. Dr. Scott made sure I was thoroughly checked. One of the specialists gave me a med for nauseousness. Kim wasn't buying that. She said this was something unusual for me. We need to find out why is this happening. She was tenacious in her quest for an answer. I love that in her! Over the course of a month or so I took many tests. One was a tilt-table test. That was the first test to come in positive. Kim wanted an MRI of my adrenal gland. sure enough, there was a tumor on it. I had the tumor--and the one adrenal gland on which it was situated--removed. Results? Wonderful. I don't need any blood pressure medication since my BP is now perfectly normal. No dizziness or nausea either. Kim said most doctors never see one patient with an adrenal tumor. I was not surprised to learn that Dr. Scott has had three patients with such a situation. She keeps at it! Luckily, my tumor was benign. Thank you Dr. Kim Scott. We love you!
