One of the worst doctors I have ever seen in my lifetime. I went to him for help but he decided not to listen to me and he sent maybe 5 minutes with me. He made a decision on me without listening to me. He gives mea medication that I have had that did not work before when someone gave it to me. He is arrogant, self centered and demanding and takes no time unless you will go through a shot which I cannot take and that was when he cut me off in the middle of the conversation. His whole strategy is to pitch a sale of a shot into either my back or my knees and he does not like patients who refuse to do so. I have an autoimmune disease and he did admit to me that the shots are immune suppressant while I have an auto immune disease that makes zero sense so he decides to put you one anything in order to get you out of his office. He immediately answered my question and then he started asking me who was giving me a medicine that I have been on for 18 years which was totally none of his business. He is an arrogant, self absorbing, non-communicative jerk who I will never see again nor do I ever want to see again. I cannot believe that at Kansas City Bone and Joint all the doctors are as bad as Scowcroft but he is representing them and his patients ratings show that fact. If you make an appt with KC Bone and Joint do not - Please Do Not make it with Scowcroft. You will not be satisfied. He is a total jerk who does not care about your health or if you hurt so why is he classified as a pain management doctor? He should never be listed as a pain management doctor anywhere. He is there to sell you on a shot. He should be listed as a salesman.I tried him twice to see if I was correct the first time but he was undoubtedly worse the second time and I saw him at two different locations. I cannot believe that Kansas City Bone and Joint would allow him to use their name.
