I have had surgery at another National orthopedic center with a surgeon that specializes on hand surgery. Dr Scott is by far the best surgeon I have found not only for actusl surgery, but for after care, and directimg physical therapy. I have had the misfortune to need surgery on 6 of my 10 digits and Dr Sott did 5. I recomend him without reservation. Oh, if you let him, he has a sense of humor! ??

Doctor walked in the room and did not even bother introducing himself. Looked at the hand from a distance and said to come back to see him in one week! No introduction, no question asked, no examination. I know I will need surgery (was told by the ER doctor). Dr. Scott did not discuss my current situation or my options with me. Had to keep asking questions but he did not answer warmly or to my satisfaction. Cold and distant. Would not recommend him. I wish I had read these reviews before seeing him as other have describe same experience (unfortunately, I had an urgent case and needed to see first available doctor). Went to see another orthopedic today. Best decision I made. Will not return to Dr. Scott. Don't waste time and money. See another orthopedic.

Dr. Scott has always been courteous, sensitive and professional in dealing with us. He understands our needs and is helpful in getting us the necessary appointments when we need it. He is prompt and efficient. We would have no problem recommending him to others who might need his professional services. Thank you Dr. Scott.

Let me start off by saying that I have great respect for doctors, especially after living through cancer. However, this man is highly unprofessional and his bedside manner is horrendous. He was 35 minutes late for my appointment and entered the room with no introduction or hello. He wanted to give me a shot for something that has never even been diagnosed. I told him that I was very concerned, especially since it was the arm where I’d had lymph nodes removed, and just finished PT with a Lymphedema specialist. It was alarming that he didn’t have enough understanding of Lymphedema and how a shot could trigger a serious episode. When I asked questions about whether or not I needed a wrist splint his response was, “I need more information.” Yet, he was ready to give me shot just minutes ago, that could have caused more harm than good. When I headed out towards the reception area I could hear him and the staff laughing, as he proceeded to brush off my concerns and make a joke out of it.

I have trigger finger condition. Dr. Scott was recommended to me by another doctor. I did not want to drive too far, so I went to his office in McLean, which is pretty close to me. The wait was really short, Dr. Scott is really attentive, and kind. The entire staff was very professional and knowledgeable.

I had full reconstruction surgery for 4 severed tendons on my thumb a few years ago. Very complicated. Had to see Dr. This week for a pulled tendon on my elbow and did a check on my thumb while there. As usual great bedside manner, discussed all options for elbow to start small with therapy, ice and heat. Behave and avoid surgery. Thumb still doing great 4 years later, with small amt of discomfort and general tightness as originally explained. Obvious not doing my daily stretches. That’s on me. If you ask questions he’s very good at explaining everything in a non technical manner. Just ask. He also doesn’t seek surgery as first option if possible.

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.
