Prescription Renewal Policy
We require a 48-hour notice on all prescription refills. Please call your pharmacy and have them fax a refill request to our office. We do not manage medication for chronic pain. Please keep in mind that all prescriptions must be handled during normal office hours: Monday through Friday, 9-5. Our on-call physician is unavailable for prescription refills.
What does fellowship training mean?
A fellowship is an optional year of training that all of our physicians have undergone. During a fellowship, an orthopaedic surgeon focuses on the most advanced treatments and techniques in one subspecialty within orthopaedic surgery. This allows our physicians to provide the very best care possible within their respective specialties.
What other services do you offer?
We provide complete non-surgical and surgical care of all orthopaedic problems. Our physicians and physician assistants are trained in all aspects of orthopaedic surgery.
For osteoporosis screening OSC has a state-of-the-art Dual-Energy Xray absorptiometry (DXA) machine installed in the office. Our physicians are committed to the prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment of osteoporosis. Additionally, Dr. David Scott is involved in research using DEXA and medical therapy to monitor and eliminate bone loss after total hip replacement.
