    Very calm, courteous and smart. Explained why I've been having awful back pain after slipping on a dog toy -yes, as embarrassing as that is - while I am nervous about having surgery, he and his staff were helpful and understanding, and got me in to see him the next day. I can now walk again without pain. Thank you Dr. Scott!

    I just read that review from January 5th and that patient must be insane. I was also in Dr Scotts office that day. His staff was exceedingly professional, went out of their way to help me with my paperwork. I witnessed a man in their office YELLING at staff that he didn't want to pay for a form. I saw the blonde girl explaining that six people touch forms in their office. He was just mad he had to pay for something EVERY office charges for. I love Dr. Scott i had surgery with him and he saved me

    Dr Scott was very professional and knowledgeable. He relieved my pain of over 20 years. However, his office staff is the rudest I have ever seen . This is the reason I will NOT recommend his practice for even my worst enemy.

    I went to my personal doctor. He sent me to Dr. Scott for my neck. I was afraid of surgery. He spoke to my husband and two daughters and explained my surgery. He took time with me. I had my surgery and I am out of pain completely! I have never felt better. He is the best! His clinic ran late but I got to hold puppies and his staff was very nice and explained the reason why we waited. We love the dogs.

    Dr. Scott can be quite hostile at times. A very tense man.
    Hollister, FL |
    I would never send someone to this office. Staff members are rude, and he told me that my pain was due to getting old. When I went to another specialist, I was told I had a protruding disc and was immediately set up for surgery. I was 34 years old when I went to see him. He expected me to live in pain for the rest of my life.

    Dr. Scott is professional and knows what he is doing. I appreciate the fact that he follows conservative treatment practices so that I have the best shot at recovering fully.
    in Gainesville, FL |
    This doctor will not allow your PCP visit you while recovering in the hospital, and also has a poor reputation in dealing with other doctors in Gainesville. He is off my list of potential doctors.
    Crystal River, FL |
    Very professional, intelligent and honest. I have complete trust in him and believe he only provides treatments that are best suited for my conditions.
