Dr Gray is arrogant, full of excuses and untruthful. His 3 minute or less appointment are spent pushing extra xrays, which is in his office, $$$, and the physical therapy also in his office and he owns, again $$$, no guidance, no results.

Arrogant and Medically Problematic

Dr. Scott Gray was the most arrogant physician that I've ever encountered, and I highly question his medical judgement and abilities. As opposed to a physical exam, he didn't even examine the area and immediately said that there would be an X-Ray. I asked if he could examine first in order to determine if an X-Ray were medically necessary. He said that he can only diagnose with an X-Ray because otherwise "he has one hand tied behind his back". I declined the X-Ray since I felt that it wasn't medically necessary, especially without at least a physical exam first. His response to simply declining an xray was truly outrageous, and it was evident that he was either unwilling, or not medically trained, to do an effective physical exam. I asked him other questions about the physical issue that I came for that day, and he was unwilling to answer any questions or look at another area of the legs that I wanted examined because he said that he couldn't do anything without first doing an xray. He even said that it was unethical and not legal to diagnose without an xray; as someone with training in this field, I'm quite aware that it is neither unethical nor illegal to do a physical exam without an X-Ray! It's difficult to fully convey the extent of Dr. Gray's arrogance in this review, but it was the most frustrating experience that I've ever had with any physician. A few days later, I instead went to a different orthopedic doctor and had the extreme opposite experience. The other orthopedic doctor actually examined the area (which Dr. Scott Gray refused to do without first doing an X-Ray). Without me even mentioning or asking about an X-Ray, the other orthopedic doctor said that it wasn't necessary to do an X-Ray. In the end, Dr. Scott Gray wasted my time, my money (insurance co-pay), and my health insurance company's money. Because I went with my instinct and declined the X-Ray, there was no exposure to an unnecessary X-Ray and it didn't cause a waste of money from an unnecessary test. I would guess that Dr. Scott Gray is so forceful with pushing X-Rays because either (a) he's not trained to do a physical exam and is reliant on x-rays, (b) he enjoys the money that he makes for each X-Ray and diagnostic procedure, or (c) a combination of both. The experience with Dr. Scott Gray makes me question his medical judgement, and due to his personally-communicated inability to diagnose without an X-Ray, I would be highly suspect about his abilities to accurately diagnose or treat conditions.

Excellent surgeon

I really can't say enough about Dr Gray who did my knee surgery 10 days ago. I have had the knee operated on before but what was done wasn't done correctly. I have literally had no pain from the surgery, I am 68 years old and my knee feels like it did when I was 16 years old. Also it would be good to say that every aspect of the surgery before and after was explained by Dr Gray himself.

One Star

Bad experience. Dr Gray did not allow enough time for the swelling from my injury to heal before performing surgery. This caused my skin to need a wound vac to aid in healing. I also needed to see a plastic surgeon. While at the plastic surgeons office the nurse asked who did my surgery. When I told her it was Dr. Gray she said "oh, he does that to a lot of his patients." Dr Gray did a bone graft that turned out to be a non union. I scheduled an appt with another surgeon. Gray found out & reprimanded me, raised his voice and said it was wrong to go behind his back to seek another opinion without his consent. He said dr/patient relationships are built on trust & that I just broke his trust. Gray wanted to do an ankle fusion and said there is no other option. He also said that I would walk with a limp because I lost length in my leg. I found a Dr at HSS who fixed the faulty bone graft and the leg discrepancy. Dr Gray seems qualified to fix simple fractures but if you have something more complex he is not an expert. I'm thankful that I listened to my intuition and did not have the fusion that Gray said was unavoidable.
