Specialties

Dr. Bj J Scott has the following 2 specialties

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I found this doctor to be quite rude and condescending. My sister was with me and overheard this woman saying derogatory things to another doctor when she assumed we could not hear her.

Very Rude

I felt Dr. Scott was very rude to both myself as well as when I took a elderly family member to an appointment. She seems to be more concerned about my weight problem and completly over looked all my other medical issues... She was very short with me and would not elaborate on any of the questions I asked.. A big difference from the Dr I used to see in this office..

Doctor's Response

First, I would like to point out that the appointment was for the elderly family member. Second, I am very concerned about weight problems and the obesity epidemic. Addressing the medical complications of obesity without addressing the root cause is not practicing good medicine.
