What People Say About Dr. Leland Scott, MD

I went to Dr Scott on a recommendation, but I have a movement disorder which perhaps isn't his specialty. Not quite certain what is. Never performed tests or sent me to another doctor. I keep going back every 6 months though just chatting because I need him to keep my prescriptions going. Probably good for some conditions- but definitely not movement disorders. Glad so many are having good experiences. I call him my dealer. Do blood tests, get pills.

Very poor service and follow up. Dr. Scott is a capable Neurologist but he is far too busy to be attentive to his patients. As an example the first appointment took over 3 months to get plus after a review of MRI and scheduled treatment it took over 2 weeks to get the necessary documentation to proceed with any treatment The last part was after repeated phone calls asking for what his assistant called simple paperwork that should only take a day or so to get.

I saw Dr. Scott for an unusual neurological problem with my feet and he spent an hour during his clinical exam, scheduled two tests, then spent another hour explaining what I had, scheduled yet another test which I will see him about shortly. He is extremely detailed in his exam and analysis of my problem and while I am still not sure of the outcome, his patience and curiosity about it, and the time he takes, makes me certain his the right person to obtain the best result for me. He's the best.

Dr. Scott has correctly diagnosed a low-back disc rupture, when my own G.P. had misdiagnosed it for 8 months. I have referred a friend to him, and he is amazed at Dr. Scott's thoroughness, curiosity, and relentless pursuit of the right diagnosis. He is a genius!

Dr. Scott is very knowledgeable and thoroughly explains my diagnoses and thoroughly shows and explains results of MRI's and other scans and tests in a language that is patient-friendly. I have had 5 major back surgeries and he has been able to explain the source of my neuropathy and pain and also has explained the best solutions for my conditions. He is the one specialist that I have complete faith and trust in!

I had been to numerous doctors including several specialists for a painful ear condition that felt often like someone had punched me in the ear. No one could find anything wrong and they just said it's fine. Not Dr. Scott- he kept searching for answers and he is the only one who took my complaint seriously. He figured out the cause and got me set up with the right person ( ironically a physical therapist) to help the issue. He knows his stuff! A big thanks to Dr. Scott!!
