Dr. Scott Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Scott Jr "A native of Washington, DC, Dr. Frederick Scott was drawn to the field of orthopaedics because of the dramatic impact that surgery can have on his patients' quality of life. After earning a BS in Chemical Engineering and Biochemistry from the University of Maryland-Baltimore County, he received his medical degree from the University of Maryland School of Medicine, where he met his wife when they were partners in anatomy lab. Following two years in general surgery at the University of Maryland Medical Center, he spent a year performing research in the university's Department of Orthopaedics. He went on to an orthopaedic residency at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson, where he provided orthopaedic care for Rutgers University and local high school sports teams. In 2012, he completed a hand and microvascular fellowship at the Hand and Shoulder Center of Western New York at SUNY-Buffalo. Dr. Scott chose hand surgery because of the variety of cases and conditions involved, including treating traumatic injuries such as fractures, restoring ruptured tendons, and treating nerve and blood vessel injuries. He also takes great joy in treating very common problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger and thumb arthritis. He chose to specialize in hand surgery because it requires an intense understanding of biology and physics to appreciate hand function and its disease pathophysiology."

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...more

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...more

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...more

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.
