What People Say About Dr. Karen Scott, MD

Run as fast as you can away from this place. It was clear when we first spoke that she was only concerned with getting paid. This doctor attempted to use scare tactics to get me to have a biopsy. I am anemic and have fibroids which if any person who has this or done the research knows that they are non-cancerous tumors. She told me I could die several times if I don’t have the biopsy done and really pressured me. Scott even went as far to tell me that I could get HIV from having a blood transfusion. She has been in business for several decades and at this point she needs to hang up her stethoscope because she is no longer a physician who care or is genuinely concerned with her patients health or well-being.

I think Dr. Scott is wonderful. She is very compassionate about her work. I have had nothing but rudeness from her staff. It really pains me to walk away from great care, because the girl answering the phone is so rude. I called to schedule an appointment and she continually over spoke me and wouldn't listen to why I was calling. VERY RUDE!

Cares more about money then patients. Messed up in filling a claim told me she would not see me again unless I paid for two appointments and filed claim myself. I blood level was very low and I was struggling and still did not care. Did not explain options well. Then would not forward medical records to a new doctor so I could get the help I need.
