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.

Having had 3 other surgeries with Dr. Scott, I was already very comfortable in my relationship with Dr. Scott, as well as confident that my outcome would be great. I really like being able to ask questions and trust that Dr. Scott has my best interest at heart.

He and I were both on the fence for replacement or repair on left knee; we opted for repair, and it may be in the end that a replacement was better. Still waiting to see.

I have visited at least 6 different ortho offices in the Spokane area due to long standing issues from a car accident years ago. This is by far the best office I have visited. The staff is wonderful, efficient, knowledgeable and best of take the time to explain and/or answer questions. The PA spent over an hour answering my questions regarding knee replacement and when the decision was made to proceed the doctor came in and spent another 30 minutes explaining and answering question just making sure that I was aware of everything regarding my care. Before leaving the office (and prior to actually scheduling the surgery) I was given a small folder with tons of information. Prehab exercises, things to make the healing better etc.. All in all a terrific experience!
