Dr. Andre L Scott is a very informative, personable, carring and excellently competent surgeon. My initial encounter with Dr. Scott was in the emergency room. He explained in detail what my symptoms suggested. He then explained the tests and procedures he was going to perform to confirm. He was cordial in addressing my questions and ensuring that I understood. Once obtaining confirmation of his diagnosis, he then immediately performed the surgery. Each daily visit included a warm greeting follow

I visited this office last week for a consultation, the staff was very friendly, the office was really nice and Dr. Scott was very thorough and patient in explaining everything to me, he had great manners and he made me feel very confident in his expertise, he did my procedure in the office the same day and he did a great job, I am feeling so much better. I also like the fact that they called me to check up on me after the procedure.

Dr. Scott is very punctual, thorough, compassionate, and gives great detail to his work. I was nervous for my first procedure but after speaking with him beforehand, all of my worries were put to rest. He even checked on me post op to ensure I was well and I had no issues at all. Dr. Scott has put my fear of surgery out of my mind. He is highly recommended

Dr. Scott did my total thyroidectomy back in Jan and he did a great job. I really did ave to much pain and the way he did my incision was perfect. it has now healed very well to the point that most people never really notice it at all. He said after the surgery that it would heal well and it did. Thanks again!

I am very pleased with the results of my laparoscopic hernia surgery. I was referred to Dr. Scott by my primary care doctor. Once I got in he quickly diagnosed my problem, explained the problem and the procedure for fixing it. I was quite happy with the outcome. I am still in the process of recovering but from all indictions so far I'll be resuming my full range of activities soon. Thanks Dr. Scott!

No bedside manners. Not detailed, always in a rush. Interns talk to you and treat you better than he does.

His intern was more personable than he was. He really didn't give much insight on the condition that caused my surgery.
