Doctor Connected to Erik Scott Denies Treating Him

LAS VEGAS -- Erik Scott's family anticipated the District Attorney's Office would make an issue out of the drugs in his system when he was killed by police in July of 2010.

Scott's father revealed a long list of prescriptions and supplements Scott was taking. But one doctor named by Scott's father denies ever treating him.

Scott's girlfriend used to work for this doctor, but the doctor wants to set the record straight. In court, several of Scott's doctors testified about the medication he was on. One doctor testified Scott was addicted to hydrocodone. But another doctor, who's name was made public by Scott's father says he has never treated him.

Dr. John Pierce is director of the Ageless Forever Preventative Medicine Clinic. Pierce's name surfaced in a blog written by Scott's father, William, who indicated his son received legal growth hormones and bioidentical hormones under Dr. Pierce's care.

Dr. Pierce says being ex-military himself, he would have remembered meeting Scott, but he says he never did.

"I want to make it clear, first off, that Mr. Scott has never been a patient of mine. I have never met him professionally or personally," he said. "If he had a prescription with my name on it, I don't know where he got it."

Scott's girlfriend, Samantha Sterner, who was shopping with him the day he died at Costco, used to work at the Ageless Forever clinic. Dr. Pierce says she was terminated in June or July of last year.

It is still unclear where Scott's father got Dr. Pierce's name.
