Money hungry business, stay away! Made an appointment with Dr. Colquhoun for hip pain after my GP looked at my hip and low back xrays and wasn't sure what was causing the hip pain. Receptionist at Colquhoun office asked me to bring only hip xray and not back extra and that I would have to make another appointment to look at back exray. I asked why wouldn't the doctor want all extras (all info) to decern what might be causing my hip pain. She said it was policy that the doctor saw one body per

Dr. Colquhoun replaced my right hip on Dec 22, 2016. I entered the out-patient clinic at 6:15am and was home by 1:30pm. He personally called and checked on me the next day; I received 6 more calls from him during the next 2 weeks. I used a walker for 6 days and stopped taking pain medication within two weeks of surgery. Would I recommend him? Well, he replaced my left hip on April 3, 2017, with the same level of skill and care. His office staff and surgical team were and are fantastic!

As a former operating room Registered Nurse--working side-by-side with Dr. Colquhoun for over 50 surgeries, I can say with confidence that "Dr. Scott" is a first-rate orthopedic surgeon. His professionalism in the both the operating room and at the bedside are spot on. Dr. Scott is using state-of-the-art equipment. As a current patient of Dr. Colquhoun (rotator cuff injury), I have experienced his competency as a patient receiving excellent and efficient care from the office staff and Dr. Scott

Dr. Scott is an outstanding surgeon! My husband had Anterior Hip Replacement two weeks ago and Dr. Scott did a superb job in that he had NO pain at all. My husband checked in at the "state-of-the-art" Surgery Center at 6:45 am, by 8:00 am he was in surgery, by 5:00 pm he was walking to leave for home. Dr. Scott's bedside manner is professional, caring, and he is a top notch, skilled surgeon We are very blessed to have Dr. Scott in Turlock. My husband will return for the other hip in July.

Unprofessional to every extent of the word. His office rescheduled every appt. at the very last minute and the only appt. not rescheduled he went to have lunch at the restaurant in the building before he saw me for my appointment that lasted no more than 10 minutes. I had surgery because of a broken wrist and he said healing would be fast but my wrist still feels off after 1 year. I canceled last appt when office called to reschedule once again one hour before appt time. I need 2nd opinion.

He repaired my broken fibula by installing a plate and screws. Claimed I was healed. 2 years later it was discovered that I had a non-union in my fibula. The break in my fibula was still there because he separated the two parts of the bone by to much. I need to have another surgery to fix his mistake (by a better surgeon). I guess it's pretty telling that when I mention to other doctors in the area that he did my surgery I always get the same response, Oooh.....Colquhoun (eye-roll).

He is very competent and knows his stuff. I am confident in him treating me and would recommend him, highly.
