Dr. Scovazzo immediately apologized for running a little late (abt. 10-15 mins.). She did seem a little rushed but made sure to answer all of my questions thoroughly and in a way that I could understand. She seemed to genuinely care about my daughter's injury and treatment. We were very pleased with the care we received from Dr. Scovazzo and her nurse/MA [...] as well as the tech who put the cast on [...].

I have seen Dr. Scovazzo since she first moved to Richland. She is very knowledgeable and has taken care of all my ailments. i have referred others to her. I have also had surgery with Dr. [...]. We are lucky to have them under the Kadlec umbrella.

Dr. Scovazzo went out of her way to find a surgeon that would be the best at providing "bridging" for my surgery for on and off blood thinners. I really felt like she went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of since she wasn't doing the surgery herself. I've always felt like this anytime I've seen her that she goes above and beyond. She remembers that I am a teacher during the day and also train teachers after school so when making the window for surgery she took into consideration my time off in the summer. She is just a great care provider.

I loved that she sat down and explained everything on my x-rays in a way I could understand and explained everything. Even things that looked weird or out of place to me. because I don't know how to read x-rays. There was never a time where she suggested I "walk it off" like so many other doctors have told me. She was straight with me.
