What People Say About Dr. David Scott, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Doctor Scott did a wonderful job on my knee and I will always be grateful to him for it. After multiple procedures by other doctors, he got me back on my feet and pain-free. His staff are uniformly friendly and helpful and his offices are just plain beautiful. Doctor Scott is the best knee doctor in Spokane, period.

I recently saw Dr. Scott for my two-year post-op appointment. Since my surgery, I have returned to my activities of walking, bicycling, and playing tennis (doubles), which I enjoyed prior to experiencing my knee problems. He was exceptional in providing me with my surgical needs and post-op care. Dr. Scott is a great listener, thoroughly answered all my concerns, and at each appointment I "never felt rushed." He replaced my husband's right knee (2 1/2 years ago) and his surgery was also successful, as he has full use of his knee - again, without problems/complications. When our close friend asked us for the name of our orthopedist, we did not hesitate to refer him to Dr. Scott. Our friend returned and "thanked" us for the referral, as he is "very satisfied" with the medical care he is currently receiving from Dr. Scott.

Dr. Scott and staff have assisted me with 4 total joint replacements, and I have happily resumed nearly normal activity levels. The quality and professionalism of Orthopaedic Specialty Clinic can be trusted and I certainly recommend seeing them.

Dr Scott has replaced both knees. Both surgeries were very successful with NO problems/complications. I would refer anyone with knee problems to make an appointment with OSC & Dr David Scott. With therapy at the same location as the doctor's office is great as the therapist knows the desires of the doctor and if there are any questions the doctor is "around the corner." Great experience!!

Dr. Scott was an excellent coach and physician in helping me make decisions about both knee replacements and giving follow-up care. I'm thankful to have both knees fully recovered so that I can resume normal activities without pain or restriction of movement. Thank-you Dr. Scott!

I had a hip replacement and Dr. Scott was very caring. He explained the surgery and made me feel comfortable with him. I came from another state where I worked in a hospital and knew all the surgeons.Coming here and not knowing any I made a great choice.I will be having Dr. Scott do my knee replacement in the near future

From the initial visit through the physical therapy sessions to to post-op follow-up I have been super satisfied with my new knees. My quality of life is back to something I'd almost forgotten. Dr. Scott and all the staff at OSC get my highest recommendation. If you are hurting, DON'T hesitate to see them. I'm so glad I did.

Just had my 6 month review, and all is in great shape. The surgery went well, his staff was great and went the extra mile for me when the Dr went on vacation. Would recommend him to any one needing a knee replacement.

Dr. Scott replaced my left knee 9 years ago. I am amazed at the ease with which my recent knee replacement was done in comparison.. Before surgery, he said to me "don't worry, I'll take good care of you", and believe me, he and his staff have done just that. Absolute trust is so important in regard to my doctor, I have that trust in Dr. Scott.

I had a total knee replacement in June, 2018. I highly recommend Dr. Scott. He is a wonderful surgeon! I needed a cane to get around for the past five years and now, no more cane! My recovery went very well thanks to the care I received from Dr. Scott and his staff. Carol S.
