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."

Patient Comments (8)
Mc Lean, VA |
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.
Fairfax, VA |
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.
Fairfax, VA |
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.

Extremely knowledgeable and great bedside manner. Explains things well and answers all questions. Very upfront about prognosis. Highly recommend him without reservation.
Fairfax, VA |
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.
Fairfax, VA |
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!!!!!!!!!!
Arlington, VA |
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.
Mc Lean, VA |
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.
