What People Say About Dr. Scott Gibson, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Gibson has misrepresented the truth that he and I discussed in great detail the following medical procedures during our pre-surgery consultation #1). a right shoulder arthroscopy with revision rotator cuff repair, #2). subacromial decompression, #3). distal clavicle excision, #4) bicep tenodesis, #5). superior capsular reconstruction surgery. The reality of the matter is that Dr. Gibson and I ONLY discussed a right shoulder arthroscopy with revision rotator cuff repair, with the possibility of needing to splice a cadaver graft in order to reattach my shoulder tendon but we NEVER discussed any of the other procedures that are listed on my surgical report. In fact, my right bicep muscle is now permanently deformed BECAUSE Dr. Gibson did a bicep tenodesis procedure on me during my shoulder surgery WITHOUT my knowledge or consent! I did not have any pain in my bicep muscle or in my right forearm until AFTER Dr. Gibson did the bicep tenodesis procedure! WOW! Unconscionable work ethic!

I was very impressed with Dr. Gibson, both as a person and as a surgeon. He listened carefully to everything I said and answered all of my questions and concerns. He did an excellent job repairing all the problems with my knee. I would highly recommend him for any orthopedic problems.

I broke my left Humerus badly and Dr. Gibson performed the surgery that made my recovery faster and more comfortable. It seemed no one at the Hospital wanted to take it on. Dr Gibson's confidence and explanation before surgery was very re-assuring after the hospitals run around and no food or water for 30 hours. I would highly recommend Dr. Gibson and I thank him for getting me back on my feet to recover in a comfortable way.

Dr. Gibson is Amazing. He's personable, knowledgeable, and very professional. He's concerned about your health and asks the right questions to get the treatment you need. No question about it, he's the guy to see in Prescott Valley if you have issue with your knees.

Dr. Gibson took excellent care of my 91yr old father when he fell and shattered his shoulder. He explained everything in detail of what was to be done in surgery and was kind and supportive throughout the process.

I highly recommend Dr. Gibson. He has a calming presence and is very knowledgeable. We saw him at FMC after our 4 year old broke his arm and the ER doctors were not able to set it. Dr. Gibson was able to get it lined up. We saw him at the Summit Center for follow up visits and both him and his staff were great!

I had both knees, hips and a shoulder replaced before Dr Gibson replaced my left shoulder. This was far the best and smoothest surgery I had. I had a short recovery time. He is a great surgeon.

Very personable and genuine. I dreaded having rotator cuff surgery but he convinced me it would be worth the pain and discomfort (and minor scars). I am 4 mos post op and I'm so relieved to be able to use my left are again (70%). He's young and has a cute fuzzy face, a warm smile and an awesome sense of humor. I have no filter yet he doesn't flinch or turn red when I say whatever. It doesn't hurt that he's a Bronco fan either! Thank you Dr. Gibson for giving me back my livelihood!

Dr. Gibson was highly recommended to me by my primary care physician who happens to be a family friend for my full right knee replacement. Dr. Gibson explained the procedure to me and the expectations. I was extremely pleased with the hospital where Dr. Gibson performed the surgery, the staff and all the nurses. Following the surgery, I had very little pain, was walking on the knee immediately afterwards literally pain free. Dr. Gibson is very personable and has a very friendly staff.

Certainly recommend Dr Scott Gibson. He was very informative, took time to answer my questions. The carpal tunnel surgery went great. Not all folks will get immediate relief base on their unique situation, but I was fortunate to experience that.

Dr. Gibson did knee scope with meniscus repair. It was a struggle to be non-weight bearing for the time required but the outcome is well worth it. Excellent surgeon. Great bedside manner. Staff responds to questions from the health portal. His PA was great as well.

Dr. Gibson restored my left shoulder back to function and now I'm without pain. The reverse shoulder replacement was a success in conjunction with physical therapy. Three months after left shoulder surgery, I decided to go ahead with right shoulder surgery! I knew what to expect and I had faith in Dr. Gibson's expertise. I'm grateful for Dr. Gibson helping me regain my life back.
