To treat you as the most important patient in the practice while delivering elite care.

Where does Dr. Scott deliver his patients and perform surgeries?

Dr. Scott delivers at UNC REX Hospital in Raleigh, NC. Read more about this award-winning hospital with private birthing rooms and a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

What happens at the first prenatal visit?

The first visit is a consultation.  It is a getting-to-know-you visit. It is a time to ask any prepared questions and review your medical history. Typically, an ultrasound is performed to establish dating.

Does Dr. Scott perform in-office procedures such as an endometrial ablation or LEEP procedure?

Yes, there are a wide variety of procedures performed in the office setting with and without a board certified Anesthesiologist. We can provide the comfort and expertise of a hospital procedure in the office at a fraction of the hospital cost.

As a solo practitioner, what happens in the event of an emergency?

One of the benefits to selecting a solo practitioner is continuity of care. You’ll see the same provider who will know and understand subtle details in your medical history to make a significant difference in your care. In the event of an emergency, hospitalized patients are the priority. In addition, Dr. Scott has a contract with the hospital laborist group, OBHG, at UNC REX Hospital. These are medical doctors who are available 24 hours a day to buffer any delay in care at the hospital. Dr. Scott limits the number of new patients to continue to provide elite care and minimize any inconveniences to his patients.

How do I contact Dr. Scott after hours for emergencies?

During the day, we can be reached at the office: 919-977-7095. In addition, you can always reach us through our online portal system. The portal system is HIPAA compliant to communicate with Dr. Scott for general questions. During the night, he can be reached through the same number. The office number is routed to an after-hour answering service. Dr. Scott typically responds within 20 minutes. If he has not returned your call, please call again as he is sometimes in deliveries or emergencies.

How soon should I expect a response for general inquiries?

All questions should be answered within 24 hours. This includes all phone calls and portal messages.

Where are you located?

934 Vandora Springs Rd., Garner NC 27529. We are across the street from the Food Lion shopping center and BB&T bank.

Do you specialize in high risk pregnancies?

Yes, we are happy to take care of high risk patients.  High risk patients are typically managed in coordination with a perinatal specialist.  However, when appropriate, some patients are managed completely by the perinatal specialist. The decision to completely transfer care versus coordinate care is typically made at the initial prenatal visit.
