Yes Dr. Scott has a long wait time, but when he actually sees you, he spends all the time you need with you. He is very thorough and listens to any concerns you have. As an RN I have always been impressed with the care he provides. I have seen other neurologists at Duke and have not been as impressed as I have with the care of Dr Scott. I am truly surprised that he does not have a 5 star rating, he is a 5 star Dr.
