Scott W. Nebel, O.D.

Dr. Scott Nebel was born and raised in a small town in rural western Pennsylvania. He graduated from Penn State University then pursued his doctorate at The Pennsylvania College of Optometry (now known as Salus University). During his clinical externships, Dr. Nebel trained at The Eye Institute in downtown Philadelphia and Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, FL, as well as several private offices in Pennsylvania and North Carolina.

After receiving his Doctor of Optometry degree in 2009, Dr. Nebel split time practicing at several locations before eventually settling in Charlotte, NC. Following the passing of Dr. William Jenkins and retirement of Dr. Dana Kuhl, Dr. Nebel and his family decided to relocate to South Carolina to take over the MediVision practice.

Dr. Nebel and his wife Ashley currently reside in Seneca with their children Sinclair & Leon and dog Zelda. Ashley was born and raised in Greer and is relishing the opportunity to be closer to home. When Dr. Nebel finds spare time, he enjoys drawing, watching sports & movies, reading (yes, Batman comic books qualify as reading), playing toys with his children, and doting on his beloved French bulldog.
