Dr. Scott and his staff are top-notch professionals in the field of knee surgery and care. He and his staff are very thorough in explaining all information in detail about procedures. His staff were continually on call to answer questions and to help in the recovery process. I give this clinic a 10 out of 10 for surgical care and recovery and physical therapy. They definitely have their ducks in a row! I commend Dr. Scott and his staff!!! Thank you so much for making my knee surgery as easy as possible!!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I can't understand how someone can cut you open, cut you apart, put you back together so well that you feel better than before! Dr. Scott was always present and aware in all his interaction with me. I felt respected and not talked down to. I am so amazed, thank you.

SO GRATEFUL for the wonderful fix on a terribly painful knee - I have my life back!! Dr. Scott and the PT staff are excellent providers and I highly recommend their services for knee replacement if needed. There is a lot of hard work involved in PT, but well worth the outcome. THANK YOU!!

Dr. David Scott has performed a total knee replacement sugery on my left knee, a partial replacement on my right knee, and a revision total replacment on my right knee. Throughout 3 surgeries he has been an excellent physician; he is never rushed, answers questions, and is very positive. The quality of care I received at OSC has been exceptional, and my surgeries and recovery have been uneventfuI, the best result. I am very glad that I left my home town for these procedures. I can't recommend Dr. David Scott high enough. 5 stars!

My experience with Dr. Scott was outstanding. He clearly explained both the diagnostic tests (and their results) and treatment plan before and after. The physical therapy personnel are second to none, very knowledgeable and supportive in the healing process for me. Highly recommend Dr. Scott.

I have suffered for many years with disabling knee pain. Diagnosed as bone on bone in both knees from a long career of outdoor work and play. After being seen by a competing office and getting poor service, difficulty getting scheduling, difficulty contacting scheduling, and the surgeon being rude. What an amazing experience I have had at Orthopedic Specialty Clinic. Dr David Scott has assembled a team of professionals to achieve a surgical success for me. From the friendly staff at reception to the hard working nursing, administration, and PT staff. This facility is the premier surgical joint repair office in Spokane. I followed the protocol for the surgery and achieved a truly fantastic result after just 6 weeks with the help of this special group of medical professionals. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for this surgery.

Thorough, very professional team, experience at the surgery center was amazing. They assign a nurse to you & she’s yours for the duration. Was in & back out of the center in 6.5 hours. Follow up after 6 weeks was great. Highly recommend Dr Scott & his team at OSC.

Far exceeded my expectations. After 3 weeks I was on the treadmill and taking stairs. At 5 weeks, walking with no pain 2 miles a day. Surgery could not have gone better and PT at the Doctors office is a must. The PT team was in daily/weekly consult with the Doctor and pushed me right to my limits every visit and ensured I was on track. The at home “tools” were a key. I would HIGHLY Recommend Dr Scott and his entire team.

Dr Scott listened intently to my initial complaints and did some treatment with medication injections. When this didn’t take care of the entire problem he ordered a diagnostic injection which showed a non emergency hip replacement was in order. I totally understood his explanation. I chose to have the hip replacement several months later. The procedure and after care was excellent. I am very pleased with the experience I had with this provider. He listens and explains thoroughly.
