Patient Comments (4)
in Gainesville, FL |
Dr. Scott always takes time to listen to your issues and discuss with you the treatment options. I've been seeing him for about 12yrs and have always had excellent care.
in Gainesville, FL |
He is an excellent doctor who spends as much time as necessary with his patients. He does very thorough exams, always solicits your input and listens to your concerns and fully explains his findings and possible courses of action. Depending on the time of day and his previous patients you may have to wait past your apt time but he will give you as much time as necessary to answer all your questions and conduct a full exam relating to your medical issue(s).
in Gainesville, FL |
I have been seeing Dr. Scott for years. There is no other doctor I would trust more than Dr. Scott with my health care. He not only cares for my rheumatology needs but he pays attention to my overall health care needs although that is not necessarily his area of speciality. I would high recommend Dr. Scott without any hesitations.
in Gainesville, FL |
I always feel like Dr. Scott is looking out for me. Even if it's not related to the conditions that bring me to his office, if he sees something that another provider missed, he will just do the testing. He talks me through every step of my care and my plan of care. I always feel confident that I know what is next and that the medical choices he is making are the best. My only semi complaint is that sometimes, I'll wait 30-45 minutes after my appointment time to be seen. Its usually 15 minutes.
