I recently saw Dr. Scott for an injury to my thumb/wrist. He’s a rock star when it comes to reassuring patients and administering cortisone shots. It was virtually painless!

Dr Scott was very personable and honest. He explained what I needed to hear in terms that I found very helpful. If I ever need a hand doctor again, he’s the one for me.

I never actually met Dr Scott-made my appointment specifically with him at the location where he is located but saw a PA. She was very helpful but normally I make an appointment either to see a PA or s dr and I know ahead of tine. I also waited an hour to see the PA.

Dr. Scott was fantastic! He treated my elementary school kid’s broken arm. He had a great demeanor with her - treated her with respect, answered her questions (and mine) patiently & right level of complexity. His approach was very reasonable in terms of cast and brace - understood kid level of activity and risks associated with active kids. Assistant who did casting was excellent. Only down side was assistant who fitted brace. Didn’t seem like he knew what he was doing. 3 visits. Overall great!

Dr. Scott diagnosed me with moderate arthritis in my CMC joint & am MRI later confirmed that I had a ganglion cyst . Dr. Scott recommended a treatment plan that would occur in 2 stages, if necessary. He removed the cyst in January, 2018 and provided a shot of cortisone during the procedure. I found his bedside manner to be professional,but thorough. He took time to answer my many questions and provided me with the resources I needed to make a decision. I always make visits for early morning.

Dr. Scott was On Call at VHS Arlington. Most doctors visited their patients by late AM. By 4pm, Dr. Scott had still not visited me. More disturbing is the message he relayed to the hospital doctor that he wanted to perform surgery on my hand that night. Since my MRI showed no abscess, and was responding well to Antibiotics via IV, I was puzzled why I was asked to Fast to prepare for upcoming surgery. I indicated I wanted a 2nd opinion and was released. 2 doctors laterconfirmed no surgery needed.

Post-surgical instructions were vague and Dr. Scott never discussed what I could expect after the surgery. I found myself not knowing exactly what to do in certain situations and searching for answers on the web (not great, I know!) Sutures were removed 21 days post op by an assistant and at 26 days post op I noticed something sticking out of the wound and it turned out to be a suture. Angry that I could have ended up with an abscess. Fortunately, I was able to yank it out myself.

The rudest, most uncaring doctor I have ever met. Did not even ask my name or introduce himself. Told me his admin couldn’t find my my x rays. Grabbed my phone and looked at my photos of them, said I can’t help you. He never even looked at my wrist. Said You don’t need surgery. You can go to CVS drug store and get a splint. During this rude consult 4 other staff were standing around on computers. No privacy. Staff, in particular Katherine, we’re rude and dishonest. Do not go here.

Thoroughly explains problem and possible treatment. Pleasant personality and answers questions without hesitation. Office staff efficient but could be a little warmer toward patients at McLean office. Highly recommend.

Terrible. Saw me for two minutes after I waited for 45 minutes. I asked questions, but got vague answers. He was in too big of a hurry to stop and answer my questions or provide a plan of treatment. Said my treatment could be anything from pain meds to pt to surgery. He had no idea.

Dr. Scott is the first doctor that I've ever provided a review on and also the worst doctor I've ever had per my surgery results with him. He did not notice an infection from a surgery that he performed on me until I almost had to have my finger cut off. This was despite me even asking him if I had an infection multiple times. Looking back, it was very clear that I had infection and he just didn’t know what to look for. His post surgery advice was also too conservative and harmed recovery.

He misdiagnosed me!!!!!! And gave me a steroid shot that made things worse after examining me for roughly 20 seconds, definitely less than a minute!!!! Worst doctor EVER!!!!!!!! And his staff is the rudest group of people I have EVER seen.

His office staff is the rudest, meanest people I've ever seen. I had a shot in my wrist and called after a week of increased pain from it and they literally said, "What do you want me to do about it?" Dr. Scott spent maybe 1-2 minutes MAX with me when I visited his office and I traveled 2 hours via public transit to see him. He is not someone I would ever recommend. The WORST doctor I have EVER dealt with, and I've seen many, many doctors.

The office staff was THE RUDEST I EVER SAW. Waited 35 minutes past my appointment just to get into a room. Then waited ANOTHER 35 minutes to see Dr. Scott who was in my room for 2 minutes max, one of which just giving me a steroid injection after glancing at my arm/wrist for about 20 seconds max and he didn't ask what medications I was on and I'm pretty sure the steroid shot messed with my meds. The office staff, if I could give a zero to, I would. SO UNBELIEVABLY RUDE! HATE THIS PLACE!!!!!!!!!!

I fell and broke my hip, requiring an unexpected hip replacement. Dr. Scott was wonderful -- he explains things very clearly, listens well and responds accordingly. He is encouraging, supportive, realistic, and earned my and my husband's total trust. The surgery went very well and my recovery went phenomenally well. I would recommend Dr. Scott Jr without reservation.

I don't know if it's the fault of Dr. Scott or the fault of the office administration, but I had 4 appointments at the Greensboro Drive office, at various times in the day, ranging from an 8 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. appointment. Without fail, I was kept waiting at a minimum for 30 minutes in the waiting room, then longer back in the exam room. On the third appointment, it was 55 minutes past the appointment time before we were seen. On the 4th appointment, we left without being seen.
