Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Scott and his staff are outstanding! Dr. Scott has provided excellent treatment, addressing and relieving much pain. Staff members Delainey and Isaiah are always friendly, helpful, responsive and professional. (In an earlier review I referred to “Eric” ... my husband gave me the wrong name. Please see the earlier, longer review however because all the comments there still apply!) I recommend Dr. Scott with the highest enthusiasm!

Dr. Scott's staff are great. They are very personable and hardworking. Vincent is the best MA in the office and is very tentative. He is engaging and understanding as well. Dr. Scott is a fantastic Doctor. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Scott has been my pain management and rehab doctor for 6 years now. He has earned my trust and my respect during this time. I first met Dr. Scott when I was recovering from a traumatic brain injury, along with several other traumatic injuries. I still see Dr. Scott for pain management and rehab because he genuinely cares about my recovery, and me as a person. He always takes time to listen and answer questions. He never acts like I'm stupid for asking questions. I recommend him to everyone!

Dr. Scott received my complaints openly and took no offense that I am an informed patient. I like his conservative approach to healing and quiet observation of me as an individual as well as a patient. He is obviously in great demand and difficult to see.
