Dr Replaced my left knee 19 years ago. His pre operation details were better than the other two Orthepeadiactric doctors that I got opinions from. True to his word my leg is the same length as my other one. His office follow up and care were very professional and friendly. I play golf about 3 times a week and work out every week as well. I am very active with yard work and fly fishing. So not sedentary life style. My follow up today shows my knee in great shape, no wear or tare in the plastic disc and the implants still fixed in place as originally placed. I totally recommend Dr David Scott and his practice. He cares about his patients and his staff are also great to work with. Bob Harley 07/12/2021

He is dry kind, good listener, honest in his opinion. His surgical skill is the best. I feel very fortunate to have had him replace both of my knees. I would very highly recommend him. His staff is excellent as well.

Was seeking a second opinion, and when I met with Dr. Scott I felt he spent time talking to me and getting to know me so that he could accurately set post-op expectations and what changes in life-style would result. The whole experience has exceeded my expectations.

Dr. Scott and his staff are all excellent. My dad was able to make an informed decision about his new hip. Even though Dr. Scott is very busy he took the time to answer our questions. His MA Tiffany and PA Chris are also knowledgeable and took the time to answer questions as well. Scheduling was easy and Dr. Scott was always timely.

This guy was highly recommended but turned out to be clueless. My wife went through hell for an entire year with a knee cap replacement. I finally went in to his office after 5 months of misery and all he could do was shrug his shoulders and throw his hands up that there was nothing else he could do. Terrible experience.

The whole experience was great, I couldn't have asked for a more professional and caring staff. He was able to work me in during the Covid19 shutdown, and I am getting better everyday. After just two weeks I was able to play golf again and start exercising on a regular bases.
