I have been a patient of Scott Andrews for many years. He knew from my first visit with him, several years ago, what was wrong with my back. Then he treated me for that with Physical Therapy. Then when didn,t help that much, we tried different things. Then my knees started getting worse and worse until we went the surgery route for both legs and also I had to have back surgery in between. He kept me going like no body else could do. THANKS DOCTOR ANDREWS for all you have done for me!!!!!!!

My initial meeting with Dr. Andrews lasted maybe 5 minutes, and as I tried to explain my history, he decided knee replacement would help. It is 3 months post surgery, and the muscle and joint pain, due to damage caused by a medication, is worse than before surgery. He doesn't seem to have the time to listen. Not only am I in worse pain, I am in big debt. I wanted the surgery at Pinnacle because other surgery there was much less expensive; he stated it would be the same at St. Mary's. Not true. Additionally, if you need pain meds, you better get them way ahead of time, because it is very hard to get them because apparently, he has 3 offices, and is in surgery the rest of the time. The office also screwed up my first appointment, resulting in my appointment and surgery having to be scheduled in a new deductible period. The only bright spot was his assistant, Danielle.

Dr Andrews could use some work on his bedside manner. He makes minimal, if any, eye contact. He is very short with answers to questions I had about my extensive leg surgery.
