    in Chandler, AZ |
    I am part time military full time law enforcement. I was scheduled for knee surgery and he cancelled due to excessive swelling. He was rude to me, slow to order an MRI, slow to get me pain meds. I have a torn meniscus and several other issues that require surgery. Each time I've seen him he's gotten more and more rude. He now won't see me until after next week. Clearly had no care for his surgical patients. Bad bed side manner, staff kept losing paperwork. I would never recommend him to anyone.

    Honest, knowledgeable and personable. Radiologist had said minor arthritis, but Dr Scoggin quickly saw that was not the case. Was able to schedule surgery quickly. Hip surgery went great.

    Kind, awesome bedside manner, great surgeon. I have nothing negative to say! He has been honest about issues that I may or may not encounter.

    Excellent broken hip surgery. Personal checking with me several times after surgery while in hospital. Wonderful staff for post-op X-rays and staple removal.
    in Phoenix, AZ |
    I came into the office with a referral from my PCP for a hip problem. Dr Scoggin recognized right away that it was a much more serious medical problem and sent me to the ED where his diagnosis was correct and I immediately was admitted and started treatment. To think that an orthopedic Dr. diagnosed what my PCP could not is truly amazing. He is very much pt centered and it is very obvious he cares.
