Amazing experience. I had been very disappointed with other ENT I saw in Wesley Chapel, but Dr. Scotch came highly recommended from a friend. His staff was friendly and organized and the doctor solved my issue with one visit. Would definitely recommend to others!! Go here first and don't waste your time anywhere else!

Dr. Scotch is in a league of his own when it comes to patient care, expertise and professionalism. He focused on my specific needs and concerns and provided recommended solutions clearly and effectively. Before surgery, he accurately described the entire process and post surgery he was attentive to my healing and recovery needs. I am a very satisfied patient and would highly recommend Dr. Scotch and his staff.

Loved the way Dr.Scotch shares his evaluation of my medical condition with me, using a laptop right there in the office. And I also appreciated that he listened to my concerns and involved me in the decision making for my treatment. I found Dr. Scotch very professional and compassionate.

Dr Scotch performed nasal polyps removal surgery on me. I experienced no pain during or after surgery, and very little bleeding. He and his staff were very friendly and efficient. He personally called later that day to check on me. The nurse called the next morning also to check on me. I am very happy with him and his staff, I would highly recommend him and all his nursing staff to anyone that may need surgery.

Had surgical procedure by Dr. Scotch. Post surgery was very miserable and Dr. prescribes low dose pain medication of 10 pills to send you post op. He encourages you not to take them if you can avoid it. Personally, Ive never had a surgical procedure (even wisdom tooth surgically removed) that the doctor did not encourage you to take your medication by the clock at least the first 2 to 3 days. They ALWAYS specially say "stay on top of your pain control". Worst post op ive ever experienced.

Just a great doctor. Great bedside manner. Dr. Scotch listens to us and does his best to treat the patient not just the symptoms. We have recommended him to several of our friend who have had great experiences as well. It sometimes takes him a bit to get to us but when he does he spends as much time as necessary to answer ALL of our questions and explain the treatment. He's one of the more "human" doctors out there!

He takes the time to listen to you. And to explain all your options to treat you medical conditions. Never tells you just to live with the symptoms of your conditions, even when there is no know cure for your condition. Tries all avenues of treatments. Has empathy on how you feel. I have Meniere's Disease which is a very difficult condition to treat and Dr Scotch has been very helpful in helping me live with this condition and all the problems that go with it.
