conservative approach in rx

Was told that I am not a candidate for surgery and that my back issue could best be treated w/physical therapy and at home exercises. We viewed my mri together and he explained what he saw and answered any questions I had about what I saw. Excellent physician

God lead me to a good doctor and i am changing to him!!!

Dr Scotts staff were very kind to me. I was very scared. My daughter and husband saw him this week. His staff called me at night an dtook time to re-assure me that he won t do surgery unless he needs to. He spent a lot of time with me an d my family. We spoke to our priest and he said I was in blessed hands,. If the person who wrote before me has a nasty problem she does not walk with Christ. I think she is not a good person. She did not see the Dcotor that I saw. I am not goin gback to Smed I am going to my Dr Scott.

Afraid but convinced he was the best for me

He took time to review my MRI which the last Doctor didn't. He performed my physical exam carefully and he showed me how my MRI related to my neck problem. He did not rush me into surgery, but was willing to allow me to try other things. When I was ready for surgery he calmly supported my choice.

Best in the business

Simply the best in the business. Dr. Scott was beyond patient helping me with my disc issues and ended up making me feel brand new again. His staff was very courteous and made sure that I had everything I needed to get through in a timely fashion. I recommend him to all my friends.

Dr. Scott is a LifeSaver!

Dr. Scott is a godsend! His office staff are respectful and helped me when I had questions filling out the paperwork. He sat down with me and went over my MRI and showed me where the disc in my spine had pinched the nerve and explained how he would fix it with the operation. I CAN WALK WITHOUT ANY PAIN!! I can't remember I was able to bend down and walk without awful lower back pain! Dr. Scott is simply the best!
