Treatment Philosophy

The care of the patient is a partnership between the physician and patient. The partnership is designed to discover two things- the accurate diagnosis and what needs to be accomplished to treat this diagnosis. A treatment plan is then created that best fits the individual.

Dr. Scott did excellent work on my hand, giving me instant relief after many years of pain and numbness. Recovery is going very well and I am very pleased with my experience. Everyone was pleasant, answered my questions, and took great care of me.
