Dr. Donald W Scott Sr has the following 2 specialties
A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.
- 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.

Dr. Scott is the finest of doctors with great bedside manners, care and concern. I appreciate that he is widely read so he can agree with or rebut the "great" information I read on the Internet. I have recommended him to many people and will continue to do so. I especially like his self deprecating sense of humor and the fact that he acts like a "normal person" and not a demi-god.
Went to see this doctor 4 yrs ago....like another review said,he's arrogant and condescending . I'd never go back. I saw him one time. Someone told me to try another doctor. I called today not knowing it was the same complex. I was told I couldn't see this other doctor because I had seen Dr. Scott! Excuse me! What happened to second opinions? I dislike Dr. Scott......who do they think they are that I can be made to GO BACK to him? This entire complex is horrible!
Office wait is always at least 30 -45 minutes after my appointed time. This doctor in my opinion is condescending and arrogant. Dr. Scott again in my opinion doesn't ask questions, and if he can't SEE your ailment he just patronizes you. Many people with diseases that go to a Rheumatologist do not have obvious visual signs of illness, it is up to the doctor to ask questions and rely on the patients answers in order to diagnose.! Go to a doctor that is not part of a bigger organization where money is the focus. Make you own decision, but this is my experience with this office.
