How much is your time worth? Ask yourself how long you are willing to wait in an old, dumpy, worn out waiting room to see the doctor before making an appointment here. I waited nearly 30 minutes past my appointment time in a crowded waiting room, only one patient being called into the back during that entire time, before giving up. What is the point of MAKING AN APPOINTMENT if the doctor doesn't keep the appointment. The staff says the doctor can't predict the needs of his patients prior to see

Dr. Scott is the most knowledgeable dermatologist I have ever been to in my 63 years of sun skin cancer treatment. He is a very caring physician and person who imparts his expertise in his wonderful care for you. I highly recommend him! MJPuckett

I have a rash on my face. I went to my appointment today and I left in the same condition because the receptionists had no record of my appointment. I will have to find another office that will actually put my appointment in their computer. I'm NOT impressed!

Dr Scott was super-friendly and helped me clear up issues I had with itchy skin due sweating in my underarms. While it was kind of embarrassing to come for that kind of thing, I was put at ease and sincerely felt cared for. But mostly, the condition is gone and all is well. I highly recommended Dr Scott!
