dr.scott wants what's best so let's do it


Provider was very compassionate and he listened to me.


Dr. Scott is very experienced, capable, knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful.


*Dr. Scott & his fellows were very thorough & took the time to actually look & touch the injured ankle. They were great in giving information & answering questions re: X-ray & injury & options for surgery.


I love Dr. Scott


Dr. Scott is both extremely knowledgeable and a compassionate caregiver. I will forever be indebted to him for his care and expertise. I am so thankful to have had him as my surgeon.


*Dr. Scott (*Aaron) is the best! He's caring, compassionate & visits with him, makes you feel as if he is a friend. Don't ever let him leave Wake Forest Baptist Health!


Dr. spent time answering all of my questions during the visit and I had one more as I was leaving - despite catching him off-guard in the hallway speaking with another physician - when I said 'excuse me but I thought of another question' he immediately turned to me and fully answered and explained that too. Much appreciated his care, kindness and patience.


outstanding physician


Dr. Scott had previously seen me in August, 2017. He was very attentive and explained things very clearly


Dr. Scott had been the best doctor in regards to my injury and truly cared about my well being and had been very informative with the treatment process


My first time seeing this provider, I was very pleased with him and the experience.


I was very pleased with the care and concern Dr. Scott showed regarding the problem I am having with my left foot. He explained exactly what was occurring and the various options regarding possible solutions. He was supportive in my decision to postpone any immediate surgery but encouraged me to contact him back if I had any other questions, concerns or the condition worsened.
