I have a compound fracture to my left ankle, and Dr. Scott was my surgeon. I am so pleased with his professionalism as he is very knowledgeable, and explained my injury and what he was going to do in great detail. I am also very pleased with his bedside manner. He is very pleasant, and easy going. He listened to my concerns, and explained his concerns very well. It is difficult to find someone who does a great job in itself as well as a great job explaining the process, and Dr., Scott has this ability. I highly recommend him. Thank you so much, Dr. Scott. My family and I are forever grateful to you and your staff.

From my 1st consultation, Dr. Scott educated me on the procedure and every interaction with him made me smarter about what I was facing. In my case, I had torn my meniscus and had other damage not found until surgery. I was provided with pictures and was able to see the before and after. I experienced no infection and my incisions were clean are are healing fine. Dr. Scott's skills as a surgeon won me the first time so I had my other knee done by him. I trust and highly recommend Dr. Scott!!

On October 10, 2014, as a result of the negligence of Meadows Regional Hospital in Vidalia, Georgia, and Dr. C. Cullen Scott, my left peroneal nerve was severely damaged by an immobilizer after a routine procedure to repair a ruptured bursar. As a result, my physical well-being and my quality of life have been radically changed. With “foot drop”, I no longer run my routine of marathons, as I cannot even walk without assistance. I was offered no assistance from Dr. Scott in finding remedies.

I had my knee replaced as an outpatient, got to go home the day of surgery. Dr. Scott checked on me and the experience was top notch. I saved money and was in my own house with great pain control. Very nice and explained the process thoroughly. My knee is working great. He took a lot of time answering my dumb questions without getting irritated ever.

Dr. Scott rates excellent. I have had three total knee replacements,figure that out. Dr Scott did my last one in February 2017. My previous surgeon was good as well but he retired and I had to find a new one. I hit the jack pot on Dr. Scott. He is kind,takes time with you, not in a hurry. He had different kinds of recommendations for after care than hadn't been used before. My healing was better and faster than the two previous surgeries. At 7 weeks,my range of motion was almost complete. Thx.
